Maybe you are a New Year’s resolutions fan, and you want to improve your health or your finances. Maybe you’re not one to set goals you know you won’t keep, and you’re more philosophical at the start of a new year. Whichever category you fall into, there’s always a new project that can make the start of a year exciting.
Right now, you may be trying to think of the perfect gift to give that special someone. Well, here’s a hint: when it comes to rocks – the bigger, the better. Now, before you start thinking about a diamond, let’s go even bigger!
Whether you are a homebody or just love entertaining people, having a welcoming patio space is a valuable extension of your home. Outdoor patios have a variety of uses that can draw others to your outdoor space for cookouts, bonfires, relaxation, and fellowship.
Of all the things on your home’s property, the septic tank is the one that you want to draw the least amount of attention to. In fact, the less attention it gets, the better it is because that means it is working correctly. Yet, having a septic system is necessary unless you are on a sewer system. If your property relies on a septic system, disguising the system is likely a priority.
Home is where the heart is. It is also the place where you and your family spend the most time together in the evenings, during the weekends, and during the holiday seasons. When it comes to creating an outdoor space for your home, most homeowners take a seasonal approach to designing the ambiance that works for their families
2020 is the year when people have decided that a pool in their backyards is an ideal addition to their property. With COVID-19 restrictions abounding throughout the United States, combined with the oppressive heat of Georgia’s summer, a backyard pool is a great solution.

We have been enjoying a beautiful spring here in North Georgia. Despite the unprecedented times that our Nation is facing, one of the biggest blessings has been that children and families have been able to spend a lot of time outdoors. With new trees, plants, and flowers blooming out each week, your yard can be an oasis during these troubling times. Spending time out of doors can cure bad moods, promote health, and provide fresh air and an extra helping of Vitamin D.
Now that spring is finally here in Georgia, many people find themselves outdoors much more. Taking walks, bike rides, and scenic drives are great ways to spend these enjoyable days before the heat of summer drives you back inside. Being out of doors more often can leave you feeling energized, but it can also lead to a bit of “yard envy” as you begin to notice the landscaping features in your neighborhood. If you are experiencing envious feelings towards your neighbors’ curb appeal, it is time to up the WOW factor in your lawn.
