Fall Yard Cleanup & Lawn Maintenance
Summer is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to put away your lawn and garden work ethic. If you want a vibrant and healthy lawn and garden in the spring, there is plenty of lawn maintenance left to do before winter arrives. Preparing your lawn and garden for winter will give you less yard work to do once the weather warms. Here are some steps you can take to get ahead of the game this fall.
How to Water Plants Effectively
You don’t have to be an expert gardener to know that plants require water to thrive and survive.

Landscape Lighting Ideas
These landscape lighting ideas will help highlight your home’s well-manicured yard after the sun goes down and add extra security and safety. By using low-voltage fixtures you can bring light to your greenery and be “green” at the same time.
Paint or Stain Wood Patio Furniture
Your outdoor furniture receives the worst of Mother Nature's extremes. Over time, it can begin to look worn from the weather. There's no need to replace what isn't broken. You can refinish your outdoor furniture with paint or stain and make it look new again.
How to Humidify Your Home
During winter, does it often still feel chilly, even with the heat on? Are you getting shocked by static electricity? Do you have nose and throat irritation? The heated air inside your home expands and pulls moisture away from everything it touches, and can leave your home’s interior feeling as dry as a desert. Air moisture, also known as humidity is necessary for good health, comfortable living and more efficient home heating. Counteract the dryness in the air by humidifying your home with a humidifier.
