Do you feel like your landscape is missing something but don’t really want to get involved in a long-term or expensive renovation project? Stepping stones may be the answer!

One of the most underappreciated landscaping home improvement projects is the simple addition of stepping stones to your garden and Detroit lawn areas. Stepping stones are an easy way to add texture, contrast, and convenient pathways to your landscaping design. If you’re looking for a low-cost, attractive, landscaping addition to your property, the world of stepping stones is one you ought to explore with your Detroit lawn care provider.

Any type of landscaping is going to add value to your property, both fiscally and aesthetically. Stepping stones in particular give your landscape texture, dimension and color. A professional Detroit lawn care company will be able to offer up creative ideas when it comes to design using whatever type of material you think will fit the current or intended motif of your property.

Stepping stones typically come in natural stone and pavers. Natural stone includes flagstone, slate and sandstone, all which can be cut to your specifications. Installing natural stone paths in your landscape can also help minimize trampling of delicate grass and compacting the soil beneath. Stone pavers are able to be interlocked, which gives a homeowner the option of having a continuous pathway instead of intermittent stones. These are also less costly than their natural stone counterparts. If you’re looking for a more consistent design, stone pavers are also a more ideal selection.

Whatever your preference, your local Detroit lawn care company can make sure your landscape becomes exactly what you want and within budget without a long, complicated landscaping project.

Many people find the bi-annual daylight savings to be a time to check in on their house to make sure everything is working properly and running smoothly. They may make it a time to inspect their roofing or plumbing, but include smaller tasks such as checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Depending on the part of the country you live in, you may be in for a long, cold winter. Or, you could just be slightly inconvenienced by some chilly weather. Wherever you live, there are definitely some tasks you can consider when daylight savings time is once again upon us. Here are some as recommended by your Detroit lawn care professionals.

The most obvious task is to check your clocks. Replace batteries in wall clocks to make sure the time doesn’t fall behind and consequently, you as well. While you’re on battery patrol, check the batteries in flashlights as well. You should have a few well-placed flashlights throughout your home in case of a loss of power, as well as in your car in case of a break down at night.

If you have an irrigation system, you may want to have that checked by Detroit lawn care professionals or do it yourself if you can. You can also check your thermostat if it’s on a timed program and make sure you’re setting it for the correct temperature, given any temperature changes you will experience due to seasonal changes.  Many people also use this time of year to check or replace their furnace filter. This is especially important because it keeps your system running as it should.

And of course, there’s always fall leaf removal! Call your Detroit lawn care professionals to see what needs to be done before winter sets in!
