How to Care for Your Outdoor Kitchen

When you make an investment, you want to protect it. Most people don’t choose to spend a lot of money to have it go to waste. Yet, that is what millions of people do every year. They will put a great deal of time and money into a project, and then without proper maintenance and care, it will deteriorate and lose value. An outdoor kitchen is an investment that you want to make sure that you properly maintain so that it will last as long as possible.

Make Your Yard More Stunning with Hardscapes

This is the time of the year when people are outside the most and want to enjoy relaxing moments in their yards. Other than cutting your grass weekly or bi-weekly, summer is generally a “low key” time where you are able to enjoy your yard instead of work in it. If you are going to spend a lot of time outdoors, you definitely want to enjoy the space you are in. Adding a hardscape design feature both increases property values and allows you to utilize your space even more. With proper care and design, you can create an atmosphere that you can enjoy throughout all seasons of the year.

Create a Beautiful Staycation Destination

While certain states are opening up after COVID restrictions have been lifted, many families are still choosing to stay at home. Traveling has become more difficult and inconvenient, not to mention expensive, so staying home as a family to enjoy a “staycation” is something many people are choosing to do.

Stuck in a Winter Rut? Start Planning for Spring!

In all honesty, this winter season has been quite dull. It has rained more days than not, leaving most of us feeling soggy inside and out. The doldrums of a dreary winter can often be lifted by looking forward and planning for spring. The spring season is a season of anticipation and renewal. Here in Georgia, we are blessed with moderately warm spring seasons that bring forth beautiful flowering trees and plants, sunshine, and warmer temperatures that allow us to get outside.

Landscape Step Treads Add Function and Beauty

When it comes to sprucing up your home, there is nothing like doing a project that offers both function and beauty. Getting both something that is useful to you and others as well as adding an attractive element is how you get the biggest bang for your buck.

New Year, New Project

Now that 2021 has arrived, most of us are looking ahead to see what we can improve. Of course, almost everything should be better than in 2020! 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.
