As home repair and maintenance specialists, it is our job to ensure that you enjoy your home inside and out. With the summer season in full swing, being outdoors has a variety of benefits that include increased Vitamin D levels, fresh air, relaxation, and overall fun in the sun! Schedule Fred has prepared a guide to help you achieve the most from your time outdoors with an “oasis”.


A beautifully designed yard does wonders for your property value and for your soul. Not only does a landscaped yard have curb appeal but an edition of Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine says, “If you spend 5 percent of the value of your home on landscaping, and do it wisely, you can get 150 percent or more of your money back.” Now that is what we consider a soulful benefit. If you have experience pruning your yard to perfection go full force into that project but if you’ve missed the green thumb gene, hire a specialist. There are many companies that offer great services at inexpensive rates. If you need help finding one, Ask Fred!

DIY Swing

Nothing says R&R like an outdoor swing and they are fairly easy to install or you can purchase one with no assembly required. There are many versions including tree swings, swing beds or chairs, and hammocks. No matter which style you choose, it’s sure to add a dose of character to your yard.

Outdoor Furniture & Accessories

Outdoor accessories add style and sophistication to a space, whether you live in an urban scene or a place that is more rural. Entertaining and relaxing outdoors becomes a cinch when you plug in the right details.  Add the right seating, lighting, and shaded area and you are on your way to creating the best outdoor oasis ever!

Now Relax!

The most important part of this process is to take it all in. Schedule Fred’s motto this season is, “you do summer and Fred will do the rest.” If you are having a difficult time trying to set up your outdoor space, call Schedule Fred and our consultants will help you figure out a course of action.
