With spring’s post-winter must-do cleanup behind us, July is great time to take stock of things around your home that may not have received the attention they deserved in the months before and add to the special feeling of summer.
With that in mind, here are some tips and to-dos for July:
Get Decked Out
Summer evenings on the deck are some of our best summer memories. Does your deck need a little help to restore its luster — or are you ready for that custom dream deck? Get Dwell is offering 10% off all deck-related work this summer.
Park the Clutter
Are bikes overflowing your garage? Has the summer brought a change in your storage needs? The garage is an ideal storage space, but that also makes it a prime candidate for clutter. Get Dwell has helped our clients with smart, inexpensive garage storage solutions that let them make the most of their space and get their garages looking great.
If you read May’s Healthy Home News, you might have noticed we suggested two additions that can make your home more environmentally sustainable: rain barrels and a compost bin. Rain barrels aren’t just a great source of water for your garden and chores like car washing, they can help bolster your home’s watersheds in a heavy rain and help keep water from getting your home. A compost bin lets you take organic refuse and turn it in to a food source that will have your garden growing green without environmentally damaging fertilizers.
Mend Your Fences
Lots of homeowners have fences that include gates. When those gates aren’t working properly they can cause a whole host of headaches and inconveniences. Since fence gates get a lot of use in the summer, it’s an ideal time to get any malfunctioning equipment repaired so it opens and closes smoothly and locks easily. If you have kids or a dog, Get Dwell recommends installing an automatic gate closer. It’s inexpensive, and it pays off in peace of mind. Get Dwell is offering 10% off gate work.
