It’s a perfect way to get all the kids together to help show their appreciation for pops. Here’s some inspiration for you!
 

A Fun Trip

Long Island has so many unique places that are perfect for celebrating Father’s Day! We consider surprising dad with one of these trips a gift in itself.

Summer Home Curb Appeal Tips

 


The weather is heating up, and it's time to get your home ready for the warmer months ahead. It's time to think about your home's curb appeal and how it might need some help this summer. Whether you're trying to make your house more appealing to potential buyers or spruce things up for a family gathering, there are some simple steps you can take this season to get started.
 

Clean Out Your Yard

Start by taking some time to clean out the yard. Pull weeds, trim overgrown plants, and remove any trash or debris that has accumulated in hidden corners. Spring can be messy, so it may take some work to get your yard looking pristine. But in the end, it will be plenty worth it!
 

Simple Scrubbing

Make sure you don't forget the porch or deck! Scrub it down with soap and water to eliminate any dirt or mildew buildup before sealing it with an exterior sealant for protection against mold throughout the season. This will also help throughout the year, and you'll have to touch it up every once in a while.
 

Add Some Natural Decoration

Excellent curb appeal can be as simple as giving your lawn a good mowing or planting some flowers in the garden bed. Pick some of the prettiest flowers you can find and place them in areas around your yard that nicely compliment your home. Or, consider planting a small tree in front of your house. The perfect spot is an area that gets plenty of sun and has room for roots to grow! It's best if there's a place to plant down low, too, so water doesn't runoff.
