Learning to Garden: It is Easier Than You Think

I used to pull into my driveway after work every day and wish I had beautiful flowers growing in my yard, like many of my neighbors. My parents didn't garden when I was a child, and I thought it was a talent that just didn't run in my family. I decided "what the heck?" one day and started researching gardening tips. I learned how to plant the right flowers in the right places, so they get just enough sunlight. I also learned a lot along my gardening journey, and I now have a beautiful yard filled with flowers that I planted myself! I decided that I wanted to create a blog that helps everyone realize that they can have the yard of their dreams. I hope you learn a lot here that helps you finally have a yard that you love!


4 Upgrades You Must Consider When Remodeling Your Home's Kitchen

Remodeling your kitchen can be a very fun time for you as a homeowner. It is your chance to make your kitchen exactly how you want it, with all of the features and amenities that you have always dreamed of. Before you finalize your remodeling plans, consider these 4 kitchen upgrades.

Dual Ovens

There are many benefits to having dual ovens in your home, even if you're not the best cook. While you might not get use out of both ovens every single day, it will be useful when having friends and family over for big meals. The ability to cook two different dishes that require two cooking temperatures can help your meal preparation go smoothly

Even if you are not one to cook multiple dishes in the oven at once, you can use your second stove to keep items warm while the main entrée finishes cooking in the oven.

Two Sinks

If your family likes to contribute to mealtime by helping you cook or clean, having two sinks can make helping much easier for everybody involved. For example, while one person is using a sink to wash the vegetables, another person can be cleaning used dishes as you go.

Having two sinks will also help cleanup go much faster than it did before, finishing twice as fast!

Additional Seating

Your kitchen is often the heart of the home, where your entire family comes together to enjoy their meals. If you have the extra space, adding additional seating to your kitchen can make it easier for people to gather.

An island can be a great way to add more seating, giving people room to help or just be social. For example, it could be a place where your kids can do their homework while you are getting dinner ready for the family.

Quartz or Granite Counters

The countertops in your kitchen are one of the first things people notice when they enter your kitchen. By going with a material like quartz or granite, it will add beauty and practicality to your kitchen.

Both materials provide several benefits that make them ideal for kitchens. They are incredibly durable, so you will not have to worry about the surface becoming scratched easily.  They will also not burn when you set a hot pan on them.

If you consider these 4 upgrades when planning your kitchen remodeling job, you will not have any regrets when it is finally finished.
