4 Reasons Why You Should Visit a Plant Nursery This Weekend

by Robert Smiddy on Jul 18, 2018

Whether you want to purchase plants for your new garden or revamp your current garden, a garden center is the perfect place to browse for plants and learn more about horticulture. That being said, continue reading to learn more about why you should visit a plant nursery this weekend! 1. Each Plant is Properly Attended to Local plant nurseries are great because they usually don’t purchase plants from wholesalers.

This ensures that you will purchase healthy plants that you will be able to easily maintain in the years to come. 2. Embrace Local Plants Your neighborhood plant nursery embraces native plants in your area, so you should too.

Top 4 Window Blind Styles

Top 4 Window Blind Styles

by Austin Trull on Jul 17, 2018

Blinds are important for a variety of reasons. Firstly, they stop light from flooding into your home. They also provide privacy and can even be used as a design element in your home to pull a room’s aesthetic together. That being said, here are the top four window blind styles currently on the market! 1. Venetian Blinds Venetian blinds are the most traditional types of blinds. These classic blinds feature horizontal panels stacked on top of each other that utilize a plastic rod to twist the blinds open and close, as well as a string to bring down or draw the shades.  Although venetian blinds are traditionally white and made out of vinyl, they can be made with a variety of finishes and styles, which makes them one of the most versatile types of window blinds. 2. Cellular Shades Cellular shades are the best of both worlds when it comes to venetian blinds and fabric shades. Like venetian blinds, cellular shades feature horizontal panels that are flexible and easily collapsible. ... Continue reading →

How to Quickly Fix 4 Home Emergencies

How to Quickly Fix 4 Home Emergencies

by Dennis Barr on Jul 18, 2018

Regardless of the size and severity, home emergencies can be frightening and overwhelming. In the heat of the moment, it can be stressful trying to figure out how to solve a home emergency. That being said, here are tips on how you can quickly fix four of the most common home emergencies! 1. Grease Fire While fires are usually frightening, grease fires can be even more intimidating because you can’t solve a grease fire like a normal fire. If a grease fire occurs, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Firstly, do not throw water on a grease fire because it will make the flame bigger instead of extinguishing it. Simply relax and place a metal lid over the fire. This will sustain the flame and cause the fire to die down. If you can’t find a metal lid, simply sprinkle baking soda on the fire.  If the grease fire escalates quickly and you don’t feel like you can adequately put it out, call 911 or the fire department as soon as possible, and make sure you ...

Why Everyone Should Have Live Edge Wood Furniture

Why Everyone Should Have Live Edge Wood Furniture

by Adrian Hood on Jul 17, 2018

In recent years, live edge wood furniture has become increasingly popular. Aside from being the perfect kind of wood to achieve the perfect rustic aesthetic, live edge wood furniture has a ton of benefits. So, continue reading to find out why everyone should have at least one piece of live edge wood furniture! 1. Eco-Friendly One of the best aspects of live edge wood slabs is the fact they are eco-friendly. Contrary to other kinds of wood planks, live edge wood maintains the natural organic essence of wood. This is because in order to get a live edge plank, specialists cut as much wood as possible. Once the wood is back at a sawmill, professionals limit the amount of wood they cut. Essentially, this means that live edge wood planks retain as much wood as possible. So, specialists aren’t cutting corners and knocking down more trees to achieve large wood slabs. 2. Every Slab is Unique Since live edge wood keeps the natural appearance of the tree it came from, every slab has ... Continue reading →

4 Ways to Keep Your Carpet in Tip-Top Shape

by Aaron Babaa on Jul 18, 2018

Let’s face it: your carpet is more important than you think. After all, you step on your carpets every day. That’s why you should make the effort to keep your carpet in tip-top shape with these four steps! 1. Be Mindful About Shoes Your shoes encounter dirt, grime, and other unpleasant things on a daily basis. All of these are things that you definitely don’t want to track in your home, especially on your carpet. That’s why it’s important to make sure you take off your shoes before you walk on your carpet. A good rule of thumb is to make it a habit to immediately take off your shoes as soon as you enter your home. If you have a coat closet, store your shoes in there. You could even invest in a trendy shoe rack to place right next to your front door.  It also should be noted that your shoes aren’t the only thing that can soil your carpet. In fact, walking on your carpet with bare feet actually tracks natural oils that could also make your carpet ... Continue reading →

4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Roof

4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Roof

by Matt Hopkins on Jul 18, 2018

Regardless of how durable and resilient your roof is, you will eventually have to repair and even replace your roof. Since it’s difficult identifying if it’s time to repair or replace your roof, we’ve created a list of four signs that will make you sure it’s the right time to update your roof.  1. Age Despite common belief, roofs don’t last a lifetime. In fact, a roof repair and replacement is usually needed within a few decades. While it’s hard to pinpoint an exact year you should replace your roof, 20 years is a good estimate. If you don’t know when your roof was installed, you could always contact your landlord, or even play it safe and replace it anyway.  2. Appearance The appearance of your roof tells a lot about the condition it’s in. Firstly, glancing at your roof from the outside of your home is an easy way to see if it’s worn. If you feel comfortable, getting a closer look at your roof will allow you to see if it ... Continue reading →
