By Joe | 

There was a time you could kick back in glorious solitude right in your own backyard. Then the family next door cleared some trees on their lot. And on the other side, the neighbors’ new master suite includes a second-story deck with nice views—into your yard. Suddenly, you feel like you’re living in a fishbowl. As larger houses occupy ever-smaller lots and the demand for outdoor living areas grows, privacy is at a premium. And it’s not just about prying eyes invading your space—you may want to shield your own view of your sunbathing neighbors and block out their chatter. Newly installed……

By Joe | 

Bamboo fencing is one of the most up and coming, durable, and green fencing materials available to homeowners today. It comes in slats, rolls, and can be grown naturally, making it one of the most attractive, and environmentally friendly, fencing materials on the market. While bamboo fencing is beautiful in and of itself, many homeowners also choose to dress it up some to make it look more permanent, and to help boost its structural integrity.

While I may enjoy the beauty of the winter season, it isn’t my favorite. I may enjoy cozying up by the fireplace with hot chocolate in hand, but I don’t enjoy scrapping ice and snow from my windshield, or the bone chilling run from the parking lot to the office doors.To beat the winter blahs, I like to close my eyes and dream of sitting outside mid summer with friends and family enjoying everything my very own backyard 'oasis' has to offer.
