Spring will be here before we know it, so now is a good time to start making plans for any outdoor projects you’d like to tackle in the year ahead.

Five Ways to Make Your Garden a Haven of Stress Relief

There are a lot of things to consider when designing your backyard space for you an your family. First, think about what you want to do in this space? Do you wish to have a pool or just an area with furniture? What about green areas such as plants, trees, grasses? How long is your yard? Is it wide enough for all of these things that you want to do in this space?

When designing your backyard, it’s important to create a space that you will feel comfortable in. You should try to make the space natural and welcoming to guests. One way of doing this is by planting trees and flowers in your backyard.

Tips for Creating a Safe Play Area for Kids

  1. Make sure that the yard has been cleared of any hazards, such as high-reaching branches, exposed tree roots, sharp rocks, and mud. If you need to, hire a professional tree removal service to make sure it’s done properly – the last thing you’ll want is for any hazards to be left behind. 
  2. Install a fence to keep kids from wandering into the street or getting too close to a busy road.
  3. Choose a safe place for playing in the yard – away from open water and exposed power cords.
  4. Pick a tree with low-hanging branches for climbing and make sure it is sturdy enough to hold your child’s weight if they do fall off it.
  5. Pick an open space where they can freely run around without having to worry about tripping over things or being injured by sharp objects.
  6. Keep playthings in easy-to-reach places so you won’t have to search for them.


How To Decorate Your Patio Area

With the spring season fast approaching, many of us will looking forward to spending a lot of time on our patio. As spring approaches it is a great time to start making plans to decorate an outdoor space and turn it into a welcoming and relaxing place. A patio area is the perfect place to spend time with friends and family during the day or night. At the end of a busy work day you can spend time eating, drinking, playing games, or even having a romantic dinner. Here are a few things to consider:

1) Color Scheme: The color scheme of your patio should be cohesive with the home’s interior design. If you have a modern style home, use neutral colors like black, white, gray and brown. If you have rustic décor in your home, use warmer colors like reds and oranges to give it an inviting feel.
