This is the time of year when we realize that heat is seeping out through our windows, robbing the rooms of precious warm air. Did you know that as much as 50% of our heating & cooling energy is lost through our windows? Yes, right out the windows, making the HVAC system work that much harder or making it uncomfortably cold so that you have to turn up the heat.

By the next growing season, they are better established and can tolerate the hot, dry conditions of the summer.
One of the questions I answer most often is about color. Should the window treatment match the wall color or the trim color?
Pests, whether they are insects, weeds, or plant diseases, are a fact of life in the home and garden. One of the most efficient ways to control them is to practice “integrated pest management” or IPM, which anticipates problems and uses preventative measures.
