Spring cleanup for your yard.

Just like with your home your yard also needs spring cleaning. For those places that get snow in the winter time, it can be hard on the plants in your yard.

Cut back things that might have died over the winter months.

Clean out leaves that might have blown in.

Rake out the dead grass out of the lawn (it is called thatch.) It keeps the moisture and nutrients from getting to the roots.

Add more mulch to the flower beds for the added color.

What is your curb appeal like?

So you have finished fixing up the inside of your home, but you have paid little attention to the outside of your home. The curb appeal of your home should be just as nice as the inside of your home. Here is a curb appeal make over that could help you to come up with some ideas of your own to help your home. Watch this video…

With a few changes you can add to the curb appeal of your home. Watch this video…

Go out side and look at your home from the other side of the street. Take notes of the things that you like and the things that you do not like. Things like…

* Does the color of the house add to the charm of the house?

* Are the plants over grown, do they need to be changed for something that would look better in that area? Or you need more plants.

* Are there some changes to the house that will add to it and make it look better.

* Are the walk ways and drive way in good shape or do they need some changes?

* Do you have a watering system, does it need to be added?


These are just a few of the things to think about. Work with what is in the yard and the outside of the house and add things that will make it look even better.

Some things you might be able to do yourself, others you will want to call in a specialist to help you with it. They will be able to give you ideas that you might not have thought of to make your home look and work better for you.

These are some things that you might ask yourself…

* What do I want to do in this space? A sitting area, a place for the children to play, a nice way to welcome guest to your home, safety for yourself and others.

* Can I do the work myself or do I need to hire someone to do the work?

* Have a budget and a plan before you start the project. Stick to the budget. If you have a plan and a budget you can do things in stages as the budget lets you do it. Even if you do it in stages it will look great as a finished project.


These are just a few of the things that you might need to think about. But it is a start.

We would like to hear about your projects.

The use of flagstones in your landscape for walk ways and patios is a beautiful choice..

Flagstone has become an ideal material for walk ways and patio construction because of its many benefits. A flagstone walk way or patio includes narrow joints that allow water to permeate the surface, instead of running off. This, along with a variety of color options, makes flagstone a material of choice for designers and homeowners alike.

Their are many patterns and layout ideas, along with the color options make this a great material to add to your landscape. You can plant things like moss between them to have an even better look, it softens the edges and adds visual interest to your landscape.

Is it time to add to the beauty of your yard? For consumers ready to turn their landscaping design dreams into reality, flagstones are a good choice to add beauty to your yard.
