  • Make yard waste environmentally friendly

    Autumn is my favorite season. I really enjoy the myriad of fall colors and the clear blue sky that signals harvest time.

    Although the anticipated fall color was somewhat mixed, the season still brings piles of leaves from our trees and spent shoots from our gardens and flower beds. 

    The way you address this yard waste can have a significant impact on your garden and the environment.

  • Simple steps reduce utility costs

    The first signs of frost let us know that cold weather will be here soon. As winter approaches, now is a good time to improve your home’s energy efficiency. 

    There are several no-cost or low-cost improvements you can make to your home to reduce your winter heating bills. 

    To extend the life of your furnace and air conditioner, for example, replace furnace and air-conditioning filters on a monthly basis. If you have pets in your home, you may want to check your filters more often.
