Article on Energy Efficiency and Landscape Design
You can design your garden in such a way as to enhance the efficiency of energy in your home. How you place the shrubs and trees outside your house can have a significant effect on how warm or cool your home can get. If you need your house to be cooled against the extremely hot sun, but still allow some of the sun to filter through, planting a few deciduous trees to the south of your house should do the trick. Correctly placing two or three trees will save your household from an estimated $ 100 – $ 250 per annum in energy expenditure – these statistics come from the US Department of Energy and are quoted in the American Homestyle and Gardening Magazine.
You should refrain from planting a tree really close to the house as the roots growing too close to the structure have the ability to damage it, once the tree grows larger. Evergreen trees can save heating costs for you as they provide a natural windbreak. However, plant them away from the house in such a way that the distance is the same as that which covers three to five mature trees.
Article on repairing guttering
Improving the guttering will enhance the appearance of your house and will prevent damp from entering the walls. The holes developed by gutters either due to damage or corrosion can either be plugged using roofing cement (in case of small holes) or be covered by a small patch of metal (for larger holes). Debris from the area can be cleared and depending on the kind of hole use the appropriate knife to smooth in the cement (with a putty knife, for small holes) or tidy up the edges for the metal(with a palette knife, and large holes).
These tips are extremely useful for your home-style and gardening and are all available in the American Homestyle and Gardening Magazine.
