Sprucing Up Your Yard for Spring: 2

Posted in Property on 23.02.10

spring 2Although it is not quite spring, it is actually the perfect time to do some prep work for your landscaping. For starters, get all your tools ready, and make sure your hoes, your pruning shears, and your shovels are sharp. Make sure the blades in your lawnmower are in good shape as well.

You can also start the process of testing your soil. This is especially true if you have had problems growing anything in the past or if you are sodding a brand new lawn. You may not yet be ready to till the soil, but you can test it.

You can also prepare your shed, garage, et cetera, by disposing of any chemicals that might be outdated. You can also begin stocking up on items like fertilizer.

Sprucing Up Your Yard for Spring: 1

Posted in Property on 21.02.10

spring 1Sure, it might still be February, but believe you me, spring is just around the corner, and it may well arrive earlier in some parts of the world than in others. Regardless, spring is a great time to get started with sprucing up your yard — for the sake of making it look nice, of course, but truth be told, there are other reasons as well.

For one thing, spring is an ideal time for selling homes, or for renting out houses and apartments. You have heard of spring fever, right? Well, around this time of year, when the weather finally starts getting warm enough to actually melt all the snow, people are ready to renew their lives — and for many, that can be relocating. It is a hopeful time to move.

So, we are going to talk about some of the things you can do to prepare to landscape in the spring!

Fixing Your Home Up On A Budget: 2

Posted in Real Estate on 13.02.10

home-improvementsNow that we have talked about air filters and such, let’s move onto damaged caulking and some dirty tiles.  These two things are super easy to fix, all you have to do is head to the hardware store and chat up some of the employees.  Even if you are not handy, you can get a lot of information from these people that work in hardware stores and they are a fantastic resource that you should be using.

To be perfectly honest, caulking is super easy, all you need is the caulk and one of the machines to push the caulk through and you are all set!  Fixing dirty tiles is also extremely easy, all you need to do is brush them off and even go over them with some white vinegar.

White vinegar is a great agent to kill a lot of germs and to brighten and whiten those tiles right up.

One of the first things that you should check is the leaky faucets that you have around the house.  This can honestly be just a matter of tightening up something in order to fix them and there – you just saved yourself a plumber coming out and doing that for you.

You can also change out the air filters in your home to ensure that you have fresh and healthy air circulating throughout the house.  More in the next blog!
