Choosing The Best Wooden Pergolas For Your Outdoor Space

Adding Value To Your House

Adding value to your house can help you get more money if you want to refinance or sell it. Small improvements can lead to a great payoff in the long run. Here are a few ways you can do this.

Improve the Curb Appeal

The first thing anyone sees as they come to your house is the landscape. Mow your lawn and keep it to a manageable level. Repair broken siding, trim, and shingles. This improves the appearance of your structure as well as protects it from damage. Keep bushes trimmed and plants weeded so they are appealing to passersby. Fill the cracks in your sidewalks and driveway. This keeps visitors from tripping and injuring themselves. During the winter, keep these surfaces shoveled and sanded to prevent them from slipping.

Four Eco-Friendly Dog Grooming Tips

As a dog owner, you probably love when your dog smells clean and fresh. Keeping them clean during all different kinds of weather might mean you have to bathe them twice a week or more, depending on how much you get them outside. However, using a lot of shampoo, soap, and other products can contribute to pollution, both in the waterways and in landfills. If you haven’t thought about it before, you may want to consider taking on the grooming duties but with less environmental impact. 

Some owners need a professional groomer to help out once in a while, especially if your dog is fussy while being groomed. Trained and educated staff can help with anxious pups for more specific services you wouldn’t want to necessarily do yourself without the right knowledge.

For those other times when you can handle the grooming duties yourself and want to leave less of an environmental footprint, here are the top four tips for eco-friendly grooming.
