COVID-19 & Outdoor Gatherings: How We Can Improve the Experience
The world is a lot different than it used to be a few years ago.
Quarantine, closing of public events, take-out only mandates, masks, social distancing—COVID-19 has brought about plenty of changes to our way of life.
And as the weather warms and the sun starts shining a little brighter, people are craving a time when we can safely get back together with friends and family.
These days, we now know that outdoor gatherings are among the safest types of get-togethers you can have right now according to the CDC.
But at the same time, this time of the year can bring a variety of challenges that make outdoor gatherings a little bit less pleasant.
This article is going to take a look at those challenges. We’re also going to look at how we at Turf Managers can help you overcome them so you can have a safe and enjoyable outdoor gathering this year.
What Are Some of the Challenges of Outdoor Gatherings Right Now?
In order to throw a socially distanced outdoor event this year, there are a couple of nuisances you’ll need to prepare for first.
Below are the top 3 challenges you’ll face.
Nothing is worse than being trapped at an outdoor event and getting practically eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Yes, that time of the year is coming. Those itchy, buzzy, blood-sucky pests are on their way. And if they’ve overrun your yard, it can spell out disaster for your outdoor event.
While sizable portions of the rest of the country have to deal with mosquitoes too, it turns out that Nashville actually ranks among the worst US cities when it comes to mosquitoes.
Plus, mosquitoes can carry harmful diseases like:
- West Nile virus
- La Crosse encephalitis
- And more
The takeaway here is clear—if you want your outdoor event to be a success, you need to get rid of your mosquito problem. And you need to do it fast.
Fleas, Ticks, & Other Pests
Mosquitoes aren’t the only party killers you’ll need to take care of before inviting your friends over.
Middle Tennessee is also home to a wide variety of insects that are sure to make any lawn party a lot less pleasant.
- Fruit Flies
And just like mosquitoes, some of these pests can carry serious diseases and even infest your guests’ homes after the party is over.
You can, of course, leave it up to chance whether these insects invade your outdoor gathering.
But your best bet is to take the steps necessary to eliminate them all together.
An Untidy Yard
Finally, if you and your closest friends are going to be gathering in your backyard, you have got to make sure it looks presentable.
An unkempt lawn, overgrown garden, or downright shoddy landscaping is more than just an eyesore. It can also be attracting pests and distracting your guests from the conversation at hand.
How Can Turf Managers Help?
So, now that you know about some of the biggest challenges at hand for throwing an outdoor gathering, it’s time to talk about how to overcome them.
Luckily, Turf Managers has the experience, expertise, and wide range of services to help you overcome all of these challenges.
