EASY LANDSCAPING DIY PROJECTS
Ever get the itch to do a DIY project? It’s springtime and many people are sprucing up their yards or homes.
Whenever we do, our favorites involve getting outdoors and mixing up our landscaping features.
Whether it’s as simple as installing some lighting or a little more time-consuming like re-plotting plants, a fresh look for the lawn always gives your home a fresh look as well. Here are our top five easy landscaping projects!
Create a pathway.
To guide you and visitors throughout your yard and link different areas together, install a pathway. You can use materials from a variety of materials, including reclaimed pallet wood, flagstones, gravel, and more to add texture and color.
Add a wall or border.
Installing a flagstone, rock, or brick wall around flower beds or trees adds a sleek, clean look to your landscaping and helps separate different sections of your yard.
Install a water feature.
Nothing says zen quite like the sound of trickling water as you relax in your backyard. You can start simple with by purchasing and installing a small feature powered by a solar panel or create a larger focal point in your yard by installing a waterfall wall or small pond.
Light your way.
An easy way to transform your yard is to strategically use lighting. Place cool-colored lights high in trees to recreate a moonlight feel, use pathway lights to naturally guide the eye, or highlight objects or plants.
Expand your yard space by drawing the eye to the sky with a trellis fence or screen made of wood or metal. Once you install your trellis, select your climbing plants and vines and get to planting!
Also did you know if you do these tips, it can bring additional value to your home. Just ask… I would be happy to give you an evaluation on what your home is worth. If you are thinking of moving this spring, check out my website at www.sandiegohomesbynancy.com

NO PET LEFT BEHIND: EVACUATION PLANS WITH YOUR PETS
Evacuated with your pets…
As the California wildfires rage on, and thousand of people are fleeing some without their pets. It’s heartbreaking to me since my cats are literally apart of our family.
Izzy and Storm are like my children’s kids. They need to know almost every minute where they are. If we had to evacuate, we wouldn’t leave until we had them. Yet, sometimes they are scared just like us.
Therefore, it best to have an evacuation plan with your pets in consideration.
An evacuation plan is a necessity for every home, especially if you live in an area where fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, and other disasters are a possibility. Many homeowners create evacuation plans for their homes and practice them with their kids, but far fewer have considered one for their pets. Take these steps to add your pets to your evacuation plan.
Assign pet evacuation to an adult. Everyone should know how to act during an evacuation, and that includes assigning one parent or adult to the pets. This allows the other parent and the children to focus on their part of the evacuation plan, so there’s no confusion during a high-stress moment when time is of the essence.
Keep evacuation maps and pet carriers readily accessible. If you need to evacuate, you should know exactly where every important item is. If you pets require carriers, keep them in a place that you can access easily.
Practice your plan. Include your pets in your home evacuation drills. It’ll help you see how they will respond and make changes to your plan if necessary. Getting your dog out of a window may not be as simple as you think!
Be prepared in case you get separated from your pets. No matter how much you drill your evacuation plan, it’s possible that a dog or cat will run off while you’re focusing on keeping your family safe. A microchip or a GPS-compatible tag can help you find your pets once it’s safe to return to the area.
Remember to stay safe during these Santa Ana winds.
If you or know someone who is looking for a change of address before 2019, give me a call or email me 858-617-9449 . Email firstname.lastname@example.org
