Tips for Saving on Your DIY Home Improvement Projects

27 January, 2014 (08:02) | Uncategorized | By: Kathleen

When you get the bug to renovate your home, knocking down a wall here or drilling holes there always seems like a great idea. Then you realize you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing. The truth about DIY projects is that the difficulty isn’t usually the actual work. Rather, it’s the know-how to see a project from point A to point B without having to call in for back up. If you’re open to learn more about doing home projects on your own, then the sky’s the limit for how much you can achieve and save with some smart tips.



This should be a no-brainer. Trips to the home improvement store and their accompanying projects can easily spiral out of financial control. Curb your enthusiasm for a practical moment and draw up your plans in detail. Make as specific of a list as you can of the materials needed and their estimated costs. If you don’t know the costs, go to the home improvement store and find out what they are. Think about what special tools you’ll need to get the job done. Take into account renting or buying costs for these as well. When you have it all squared away, add another 10-15 percent for surprises.



Remember this: if you don’t have the skills, think twice about your project. This is especially important advice about electrical or plumbing projects. Doing these types of projects incorrectly is both dangerous and potentially extremely expensive. Getting a professional in the first place is far cheaper than hiring one to clean up after a catastrophic mess. Youtube videos are fantastic for simple woodworking, flooring, tiling, and unclogging the toilet projects, but be careful about more complicated projects.



Keep your eyes peeled weeks or earlier in advance for deals in classifieds that you find online, local eBay deals, or local re-use center. Spend some time online to learn more about what your money-saving purchasing options are. A rule of thumb for DIY projects is if you’re less rushed to get it done, you can usually save yourself a lot of money.

Even through all the years of progress in technology and building materials, wood is still the choice for building homes, decks, patios, and many other things.

Four Types of Sprinkler Systems

11 October, 2013 (07:46) | Uncategorized | By: Kathleen

Choosing the right irrigation system for your yard and garden can mean the difference between a luscious green lawn and beautiful vegetables or dry, brown grass and a sad harvest. Especially living in Texas, you need the right amount of water to keep your yard looking its best. To help you choose the right system, check this quick information on four different kinds of sprinkler systems in San Antonio.



A constant drip from the bathroom faucet is incredibly annoying and wasteful. But a drip from the sprinkler outside can be very beneficial. A drip system is the most water efficient type of sprinkler system. A hose is laid snaking throughout your flowerbed or vegetable garden and water is dripped directly to the base of the plants at a rate the soil can absorb efficiently. With drip systems there is no run-off or water lost from spraying overhead. 



Traditional sprayers are the most common type of irrigation system. Because they spray the water out in a wide circumference, they are great for watering lawns. Be sure the place the sprinkler heads evenly apart and that they are set to spray in different directions. Some of the sprayers can be set to rotate in a full circle, half circle, or even a quarter circle to prevent watering the sidewalk or driveway.


Soaker Hoses

Soaker hoses sweat water out along their entire length. If you have plants that are planted closely together, you may want to use soakers because they’re great for watering dense plantings. They’re also water efficient because they sweat water only where you place them.



Rotor sprinkler systems in San Antonio are also great for conserving water because they apply water slower than spray heads allowing the soil the absorb the water at a slower rate. This prevents flooding of flowers, vegetables, and grass which helps prevent excess run-off and wasting water. For more help deciding which irrigation set-up is best for you, call a professional landscaper to give you more detailed information.
