On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

Kitchens come in all different shapes and sizes. Looking through numerous floor plans and décor, you can find the perfect kitchen if you’re looking for homes for sale in LaGrange, GA.

The lighting in your kitchen can really help set a mood when entertaining or aid in functionality. There are plenty of homes for sale in LaGrange, GA built with the proper lighting in mind. Features like pendant lights or flush mounts can give your kitchen the optimal light you need in your space while adding a chic edge.

Spring Landscaping Tips for New Homes in Auburn AL

Categories: DIY Tips & Tricks | Posted: March 16, 2011 | Comments Off on Spring Landscaping Tips for New Homes in Auburn AL

For a lush lawn this spring, reseeding can give you fast-acting results. Make sure you find seed that accommodates the sun coverage in your yard and spread it evenly across your lawn. Make sure you lay down extra seeds on bald spots and be sure to cover exposed seeds with hay to keep them in place. One of the major benefits of buying a new home in Auburn, AL is the landscaping that comes with the home. New homes generally have thick lawns, but basic lawn maintenance in the future helps your lawn come back lush and thick for years to come.

Spring showers bring April flowers- which is why it’s important for you to have a proper irrigation system set up in your garden. Make sure your flower beds, or even your lawn, aren’t going to get ruined by the plentiful rain this spring. Run off can drown plants and rip up parts of your yard. Raised flower beds built with lumber or rock frames can help keep soil and roots secure. Yards come in all shapes and sizes, so when you’re looking new homes in Auburn, AL, think about what you want in a home site. Do you spend a lot of time outdoors? Do you have pets that need room to roam? Or is your idea of outdoor living a screened in porch and a no maintenance home site? There are home sites and landscaping alternatives for every lifestyle.
