It's here! That time of year when the voice of the great outdoors calls you to revel in Nature's endless bounty, your soul singing the praises of all wondrous growing things!

Right. Or, if you're like me, you could just grab a cold one and head for the deck.

Now, there's nothing wrong with a little poetry, but I like a little function with the form. When my wife and I go looking for something to make our outdoor living easier, more stylish, or just more fun, we want stuff that not only looks great, but that works, too. Lucky for me, hosting home improvement shows on HGTV and the diy networks, I get to see a lot of really cool items that do just that. Here are my recommendations for helping get your summer in full swing.
