The beauty and relaxation that your garden can provide you and your family is certainly worth all the work you put in each year. Putting in a little extra work at the end of the season, however, can make getting your garden ready next spring easier and can help keep your plants healthy through the winter months. Our Licensed NYS Real Estate Salesperson has a few great tips that will get your garden ready to handle the cold and snow.
Though not a favorite task of any gardener, it is a very necessary step to getting your garden ready for winter. Remove your annuals, empty and store any pots and containers, and give your garden one last mow. Also, raking up all those leaves is one chore all homeowners are familiar with each autumn, but they do make great mulch for your perennials and vegetable garden, and are also a great addition to your compost.

While open-concept homes seem to be the popular trend in the home construction industry, sometimes decorating for large spaces can be a challenge. The flexibility of a large living-dining-kitchen space can allow you to enjoy more time with your family and entertain with ease, but creating a sense of purpose for each space while still maintaining a flow to the room requires a bit of know-how and creativity.
You’ve got the space to do it, and here are a few of Christine’s ideas on how to define spaces in your home!
Homeowners who are thinking of selling are often warned against choosing bright and bold paint colors for their walls. These colors can be difficult to cover up, usually require a number of coats to look good, and can dramatically change the feel of a room. If the color is not selected with a bit of planning and forethought, it can sometimes turn into a decorating nightmare. With a little forethought and Brendan’s helpful painting advice tips, you can create a beautiful space that reflects you and your family’s personality with no restrictions!
The colors you choose for your walls should always reflect the mood of the room. Certain colors invoke particular moods, and can produce even physical and emotional reactions. Being aware of this can really make your choice one you will be happy with for years to come. For example, red stimulates appetite and so is a great choice for kitchens, while yellow stimulates creativity and may work well in an office space.
