A deck is like an extra room for your house. It can be your favorite room in the summer, or it can be just a large entrance to the backyard. The difference comes down to offering a reason to stop and relax a while. Even the addition of furniture may not be enough. After all, why leave the living room couch and TV to sit on an empty deck?

Nature and the beauty of plants can turn an uninviting deck into a retreat to unwind and relax.
Love to cook? Then you already know that fresh herbs can take your cuisine from “good” to “freakin’ amazing”!

Dogs are widely revered as man’s best friend for a reason. Their unwavering companionship and love can decorate your life with joy, adventure, and inner peace. For many first-time dog owners, canine companionship can even lend to therapeutic benefits and an improved state of mind.
However, the responsibilities and commitments that come with owning a furry family member should be kept in mind. Dogs require daily exercise, stimulating playtime, and a place to relieve themselves outdoors, which may wreak havoc on your lawn. If you want to avoid unsightly yellow spots and tramped-down dirt patches, thoughtfully choose the type of grass best suited to your family’s needs.
