Fall has arrived and winter will soon follow. Cooler days mean more time spent indoors, making fall the perfect time to complete projects around the house. Since the holidays are right around the corner, it’s even more important to complete some of the do-it-yourself projects on your list. Just make sure a lighting update is included.
Changing indoor lighting fixtures is an inexpensive way to update to your décor. You can do a lot with lighting – create ambience, illuminate a piece of art or even transform a room. The ideas are limitless! The only question is what’s your lighting style? Answer that, and you’ll be on your way to a fabulous redesign inspired by a simple lighting upgrade.

This time of year outdoor projects seem to multiply. There’s the last pressure washing session to clean up after summer and get ready for winter, cleaning off the deck and storing the lawn furniture, and fertilizing the lawn (if the grass type allows). It’s also time to close up the pool and spray down the weeds. And last but not least, let’s not forget all those gas-powered outdoor projects: blowing, sawing, trimming, cutting, edging, lopping and pruning!
Many of us store these necessary chemicals and supplies in the garage or outdoor shed. All of these products are excellent in their own right, but frankly they do not play well together. Things can quickly get hazardous, poisonous or even deadly. Be sure to thoroughly read the labels on the back of the package. Product Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are available online for more detailed information.
Fescue grass is a hardy variety and very popular among homeowners for creating a lush, green lawn. Fescue is a grass that tolerates some shade and stays green all year. Since it is a non-spreading grass, Fescue needs to be overseeded in the fall to thicken and fill in. Here’s what to do when planting Fescue grass.
Prepare the yard before seeding by aerating the soil. Aeration is the process of piercing the soil surface to allow air and water to penetrate deeper into the soil. This will result in better moisture retention and the development of deeper roots. Since powered aerators are specialized and relatively expensive, it may be best to rent one from your local Home Depot Tool Rental Center.
