The Clutter Dilemma

Essential Tips for Landscaping

Essential Tips for Landscaping

Whether you hire landscaping experts or you’ve decided to go on this journey on your own, there’s much to learn. Of course, you pick up a few tips and tricks by watching online videos and talking to garden store workers, but some things don’t become apparent until you actually get stuck in and get the landscaping process underway.

If your new adventure is about to kick off, the following tips may help make sure it goes as smoothly as possible.

Don’t Waste Money on Weed Mat

Most people joke about how hard it can be to grow plants, but how easy it is to grow weeds. Weeds can grow in the strangest of places, so there’s truth in saying that there is no point in purchasing weed mats for planted areas.

While it looks great initially, the layers of soil and mulch on top of that weed mat are what ends up growing weeds. Save that weed mat for walkways to stop gravel, mulch, and other landscaping materials from sinking into the ground.

Don’t Skimp on Garden Tools

One of the many reasons people hire landscaping teams is that they don’t have the right tools for the job. Who needs thousands of dollars of tools for something you’ll do just once? It makes economic sense to outsource your landscaping.

Although, if you do decide to undertake landscaping on your own, make sure you pay attention to tool quality. Entry-level tools are okay for the occasional weeding exercise but may not last the distance for those extensive new landscaping jobs. It can be worth spending close to top-dollar for tools that serve you well for years to come.

Home Security Cameras

Five Benefits of Home Security Cameras

The use of security cameras and CCTV surveillance systems has become increasingly popular among Australian homeowners in recent times. With modern technology lowering the price of video surveillance to a level where everyone can afford it, the security market has grown rapidly.

One of the main drivers behind this increase in popularity is the huge number of advantages associated with using security cameras at home. For example, just having a camera will likely prevent intruders from entering your property. In the rest of this article, we’ve looked at the top five benefits of using CCTV surveillance to secure your property.

  1. CCTV Will Deter Criminals and Other Intruders

The most useful advantage of CCTV is its ability to deter criminals and other intruders by just being there. In general, your property is much less likely to be broken into if you have visible video cameras monitoring things.

With this in mind, make sure that you advertise the fact that you’re using a comprehensive security system. Place signs up around your property, use motion-activated sensor lighting and ensure your cameras cover the majority of your property.

  1. Video Surveillance Will Help the Authorities Catch Intruders

If you do suffer from a break-in or burglary, just having CCTV footage of the incident can be a huge help to the police and other authorities. In many cases, suspects can be identified with CCTV, which means that it will be a lot easier to bring them to justice.

Why Landscaping Could Require an Expert’s Touch

When many people decide they are going to look at their home’s landscaping options, they consider doing it on their own. After all, surely the local garden store has everything you need to do an excellent job, right? Wrong. Believe it or not, your next landscaping could require an expert’s touch for the following reasons.

You’ve Got Tough Terrain

In a perfect world, everyone’s section would be smooth, flat, and without any imperfections. That’s far from the reality though. Many people have to contend with building on slopes, tackling steep terrain, and trying to figure out what to do with boggy areas or other challenging parts.

When you have a particularly challenging section, elevation, or other similar issues, then expert landscapers can come to the rescue. They can provide custom solutions that incorporate those challenges into your design in the best way possible.

Your Yard is Small

Many people have dreams of large swimming pools, expansive composite decking and giant sculptures adorning their yards. They then find their dream home and realise it’s on a postage-stamp-sized section. You can still have a yard of which you’re proud, but it can take a landscaping expert to bring it to life.

Landscaping Tips

Top Landscaping Tips for Small Properties

Space Designs advise that the average section is only getting smaller, as cities try to accommodate more and more people. If you find yourself with a postage stamp section with which you feel landscaping will be impossible, then don’t despair. You may be surprised by what you can achieve.

Trying to landscape a small property can be a challenge, and maybe one that’s not within your area of expertise. If that’s the case, you are best to talk with experts. Otherwise, check out these tips below for how to combat a small area and turn it into paradise.

  1. Break it Up

It’s a strange concept – taking a compact yard and making it even smaller, but it can have the opposite effect if done correctly. Take your small patch of land and break it up into smaller areas with purpose. Create paths leading from each other and add seating, paving stones, and little garden sections. You will be amazed at how this landscaping trick works to add more depth and space.

  1. Use Colour Wisely

You may plant flowers anywhere and everywhere because you like them, but make sure there is a method to your madness. When creating a landscaping construction, you have to think about where colour is going to work the best. For example, if you place it at the front of your property, the vibrancy will detract visitors from how small the remainder of your section is. This is an excellent way to help bump up your resale value.

Stone Cladding

Top 5 Benefits Of Using Stone Cladding For Kitchen Renovations

Although it isn’t the cheapest building material on the market, stone cladding is becoming more and more popular every year. Traditionally used by wealthy families to make their homes stand out as something special in conjunction with popular plasterboard, stone cladding is becoming more affordable – and consequently, more widespread – all the time.

According to the stone experts, Meteor Stone there are many reasons why you should think about using stone cladding in your home. It looks great, it’s very durable and it can give your home a touch of class. In my opinion, the top 5 benefits associated with the use of stone cladding include:

  1. Stone Cladding Is Tough

Stone is one of the strongest building materials known to man. In the past, it was used to build near impenetrable walls and extremely long-lived buildings. In modern times, naturally quarried stone is used to build everything from retaining walls and paths to fences and houses. Stone cladding is extremely tough and durable, which means that it’s resistant to weathering, breaking and chipping. It’s usually a good choice for outdoor walls that are exposed to the elements or indoor walls in high traffic areas.

  1. Stone Cladding Can Lower Your Energy Bills

Believe it or not, I’m not making this up! Stone is a very good insulator, and even a relatively thin layer of stone cladding can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Although it can be quite expensive, the energy saving properties of stone cladding can help offset the cost.

Pool Fence

Top Tips For Making Sure Your Pool Fence Meets WA Safety Requirements

Western Australia has extremely strict rules surrounding the enclosure of swimming pools or outdoor spas. Pool fencing is an absolute must, otherwise you risk substantial penalties, including large fines. Most people use professional swimming pool fence businesses to install their fences, but there’s no reason why you can’t do it yourself if you’re willing to put the time and effort into it.

However, advise that installing your pool fence yourself will be difficult. You will need to create a design that meets the relevant Australian Standards and other safety requirements. This plan will need to be approved by your local council or whoever else is in charge of pool fence approvals in your area.

To help you comply with WA’s tough pool fencing laws, we’ve put together a short list of tricks and tips:

Even If You’re Doing It Yourself, Buy A Kit From A Professional Supplier

Pool fences are notoriously difficult to get right. The best way to make sure that you’re complying with the relevant regulations is to buy a DIY kit from your local pool fencing company. Everything from steel and wood to glass pool fencing can now be completed using DIY kits from professional suppliers.

Make Sure You Consider Your Pool’s Surrounds

There are strict no climb zones associated with new pool fences, which means that you need to think carefully about the exact placement of your fence. If you’re thinking about installing a pool fence which passes close to a house, garden or other feature that offers climbing potential, make sure that you’re staying within the relevant rules.
