Landscaping Tips 

If spare time is a problem, hire a landscaping contractor with experience designing easy-care landscapes, greatly reducing upkeep efforts. Mower-friendly lawns, devoid of grass peninsulas and islands that slow down mowing require lots of turning and maneuvering. Opt for a low water landscape design using drought-tolerant plants and ground cover to conserve water and decrease maintenance needs.  Small yards can be made to look larger using the expertise of a landscape contractor designer familiar with the "forcing the perspective" technique. Angling plants toward each other, extending to the rear of the landscape. Making the yard look longer and more spacious, while adding visual interest and enhanced beauty.

Renovating and the Economy

When people are caught up in the news surrounding a slow economy the first response is to pull back and guard the gates. It 's not easy to sit through night after night of bad economic news and many businesses suffer because people are stopping their plans as a result. However, when there is such an economic slowdown, there are many advantages to going ahead with planned renovations or making new ones. Because even though home prices may dip below the price of previous years, there is a long history of real estate markets bouncing back within a few years. Money invested in a home on a regular bases is almost recession-proof and proves time-after-time to be a solid investment. Even if the home will not be resold for a long time, the value will increase and so will the equity. This means that future large purchases like a recreational vehicle or cottage can be acquired because of the value built up in the residence. As the old saying goes “even an outhouse on a piece of land in a good location is a good investment.”

Since the 1990’s banks have been lending money in single-digit interest and recently this has dropped to extreme lows. For the qualified borrower who does a major renovation this means that the cost of the project will be even cheaper over the long run because of the savings in money owed to the bank. Not only that, the Federal government has been offering both energy rebates and tax credits to homeowners so this will bring the price down even further.
