Living in Arizona comes with many perks. And although the summer season can and often is associated with extreme heat, the truth is that the majority of the year, the weather is very livable.

Benefits Of Sprucing Up Your Outdoor Living Space
Reason #1 – Spring is the Season for Outdoor Living
When the calendar hits March and April the outdoors is the place you want to spend the majority of your time in Scottsdale. With temperatures hovering in the mid 70’s from sunrise to sunset, and nighttime temperatures not too extreme, the Spring season is often the best time to entertain friends and family members in your back yard. It’s also a popular time during the year for people to host BBQ’s after work or on weekends as the weather is perfect for this type of relaxing activity. Read more
