12 Green Home Improvements

Making home improvements doesn’t have to mean compromising environmental ideals in the process. There are numerous jobs that a person can do that fit with a green lifestyle. While these improvements help protect the planet, they’ll also help keep a few extra dollars in your wallet. 1. Conserve water. Turn off the tap between brushing teeth or rinsing off dishes. Better yet, install low-flow faucets, showerheads and toilets that reduce the consumption of water in the household. 2. Motion detection: Motion-detector lights can be installed in different rooms of the home and outdoors. Lights will automatically turn on and off depending on the activity in the area, reducing the chances of a light being left on inadvertently and wasting money and energy. 3. Solar panels: You may have been toying with the idea of solar panels for years. They can be installed on the roof or in the yard to power various components of the household, like lights during a traditional power outage or the swimming pool filter. Today it is possible to buy used solar panels, many of which still have a lot of life left to them and are considerably cheaper than new ones. 4. Aluminum-clad storm door: Insulate the entryway of your home with a storm door that will buffer against harsh weather conditions. While you’re creating a more airtight space, caulk around windows and doors.

5.  Replace air filters. Your HVAC system likely has filters inside that trap dirt and contaminants. Replacing the filters leads to cleaner indoor air and helps the unit run more efficiently. 6. Power strips: Stock up on power strips and plug all of your peripherals and computer equipment into these strips. This way when you want to power down everything completely, you simply turn off the power button on the strip. This ensures no devices are drawing power even in the off position, which many do. 7.  Install fans. Fans aren’t just useful in the summer. In the winter, the blades can be set to rotate in the opposite direction and help draw warm air into the room, heating more efficiently. 8.  Rainwater barrels: Set up rainwater barrels at the downspouts of your home’s gutter system. These barrels collect water that can be used to water indoor and outdoor plants, or even wash the car. Some feature a spigot to which you can directly connect a garden hose. 9. Plant trees.Trees are good for the environment in many ways, producing necessary oxygen for life and offering food and living areas for wildlife. Trees can also shade a home during the warm weather, helping reduce energy consumption. 10.  Fireplace doors: Install glass fireplace doors, which are safer than fireplace screens. They’ll also help protect against heat loss up the chimney when there isn’t a fire lit. 11. Buy a solar cover. Warm up your spa all season long with a solar cover, which helps keep debris out of the water, too. Solar covers reduce the need to fire up the heater to warm the water. 12. Dog waste composter: Create a method to safely dispose of dog waste without having to toss it in plastic bags in the trash. There are devices that can be buried into the ground to serve as a dog waste receptacle. Or you can make one of your own by placing a container with a lid that seals on top but has an open bottom. Sprinkle a natural bacteria septic tank product, such as Rid-X(R), down the hole routinely and it will break down the waste and turn it into soil fertilizer. There are a variety of ways to go green with home improvements, whether extensive projects or small fixes.

Many areas across North America offer prime fall foliage viewing.

Celebrate the Majesty of Autumn

Every autumn outdoor enthusiasts bear witness to the beautiful show of color and the wonder of Mother Nature. Although spring, summer and winter offer their share of natural splendor, perhaps no season offers the aesthetic appeal of autumn. Vivid yellows, oranges, purples, and reds can be seen in forests and hillsides all across most parts of North America this time of year. The foliage season begins in September for northern-most areas and can stretch into November as one moves southward. Each year thousands of people flock to areas of the country to catch a glimpse of peak color. While many have their preferred spots, it is interesting to explore other areas and compare. Here are some popular areas across North America where individuals can enjoy fall foliage. • Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Oregon: A special place on the western side of the Cascade Mountains, Congress recognized the unique beauty of the Gorge by making it the nation’s first National Scenic Area in 1986. The last two weeks of October into November is the best time to view the colors. • White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire: This national forest in New England offers vivid color, peaking the first two weeks of October. • Green Mountains, Vermont: Vermont is a great state for fall foliage, and just about every piece of land with some trees will offer a beautiful display. The Green Mountains peak in late September in higher elevations.

• Laurentian Mountains, Quebec: Splendid autumn images are abundant in Canada, too. Leaves are celebrated every year during the last week in September at Tremblant’s Symphonie des Couleurs. Peak viewing times start in the end of September. • Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina: This limited-access road runs through the southern Appalachian Mountains from Virginia to the North CarolinaTennessee border and offers great views of fall foliage. • Allegany State Park, New York: This farwest region of New York borders equally prime viewing areas in Pennsylvania. The second week in October is peak viewing time.

Why Do Leaves Change Color?

Deciduous trees, or those that shed their leaves, are made up of different color components depending on their biology. During the spring and summer, chlorophyll, or the substance that causes the green hue, is in abundance in leaves. As the autumn arrives and there is less available sunlight, chlorophyll production ceases and the remaining breaks down in the leaves. That allows the other pigments in the leaves to shine through. This produces the orange, red, blue, purple and other shades of autumn.

Ready Your Lawn for Winter Though spring and summer are often seen as the primary seasons for lawn care, fall is a great time to ready a lawn for winter weather. The following tips can help a lawn withstand winter weather and might even make spring lawn care that much easier once the warm weather returns. •F  ertilize. Fertilizing in the fall actually helps the lawn come the early spring. Nutrients remain in the soil throughout the winter months, and the lawn will utilize those nutrients once the snow melts and the sun and warmer weather return. •A  erate. Lawns typically become compacted by late summer, making it difficult for the grass to thrive. When fall arrives, aerating the lawn can relieve that compaction by removing plugs or cores of soil from the lawn. Once a law is aerated, the grass roots can spread out and thicken the lawn. It’s good to aerate in the fall when grass roots grow. •E  dge the property. Homeowners who live in areas that experience heavy snowfall in the winter might want to edge their lawns in the fall. Edging can eliminate the risk of damaging grass that hangs over curbs and sidewalks when shoveling snow. What’s more, an edged lawn adds aesthetic appeal to the property. •S  eed. Fall can be a great time to seed a lawn as well. Overseeding a warm season lawn in the fall can help a lawn resist diseases throughout the winter. •R  ake the leaves promptly. Don’t allow leaves to accumulate on the grass before finally dusting off the rake. If you allow leaves to sit on the lawn too long, they can smother the grass. Don’t allow leaves to reach ankle length.
