Keep Your Yard Healthy This Summer
We might love the hot, summer sun, but our lawns? That's another story. Here's how to keep your yard healthy and prevent dried-out grass this summer:
  1. Leave the grass longer. Mow regularly, but don't cut too short. Longer grass holds in moisture and shade better.
  2. Water early in the day or late at night. Watering in times of high heat or sunlight will cause the moisture to evaporate.
  3. Aerate often. If you have a small lawn, poke small holes with a garden fork to give the grass plenty of oxygen. For larger lawns, you could rent an aerator machine from your local hardware store
If you have a sprinkler system, schedule at least two waterings per week, ideally before 6 a.m.
How to Save on Homeowner's Insurance
Homeowner's insurance is necessary to protect our properties, our belongings and our loved ones. But does that mean we should break the bank buying it? 

Definitely not. Here's how to make your homeowner's insurance just a little more affordable:
  • Shop around. You don't have to go with the first quote you get.
  • Consider bundling. Bundling your homeowner's insurance with your car or life insurance may qualify you for a discount.
  • Consider job-related discounts. If you're a teacher, public servant or first responder, there may be discounts you're eligible for.
Make sure to ask your agent for insurance recommendations. They may know local vendors who can offer you a great deal.

How to Cut Back on Energy Costs this Summer
As the temperature rises, so do our energy bills. 

Don't want to deal with sky-high A/C costs this summer? Here's how to cut back:
  • Buy a smart thermostat. These help you pre-program temperatures and save on energy when you're not in the home.
  • Block air leaks. If air is getting out around your windows, doors or attic, it means higher A/C usage (and higher energy bills).
  • Clean your A/C system. Clear away debris from the unit, dust off intake vents and replace your filters regularly.
Have quality drapes and blinds in place, too. This will keep sunlight from heating up your home, increasing your need for A/C.
