Plants for the Homes

Air Filtering Plants

Florist Mum and the peace lily took the top spots when it comes to air cleaning.  They are both effective at removing amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and ammonia from the air.  Recommendation is having at least one plant per 100 square feet of space. 

The Snake plant is another really popular air-purifying house plant because they’re beautiful and basically impossible to kill — the perfect option if you’re a neglectful young adult.

The Bamboo Palm -This air-purifying palm thrives in shady indoor spaces so it’s a great addition your bedroom or bathroom, especially if you’re going for tropical ~island~ vibes.

Dumb canes come in a variety of beautiful multicolored leaf patterns and they’re super easy to grow and keep as house plants. But they’re actually called dumb canes because of their poisonous effect when eaten, which can slur or stop speech and even close the throat and be fatal in large quantities.  So please make sure to keep them away from young children and pets.

Coming up with a down payment of thousands of dollars can be really tough.  Especially if you are already struggling with loans, rent and life overall.  With most home prices being over $200,000 these days banks are looking for 20% down.  That could mean coming up with $40,000 or more.  There are lots of things that you can cut out and temporary sacrifice to get you to that end goal of owning your brand new home!  Here are our top 10 to help make this dream come true.

  1. Make coffee at home versus those daily lattes.
  2. Stick to watching Netflix instead of going out for movies!
  3. Put away those credit cards
  4. Switch Phone plan to the lowest possible
  5. Cut out Cable TV
  6. Use coupons at the grocery store or price match
  7. Sell unused items online
  8. Do you smoke? No better time to quit, not only will your health improve.  Smokers can save thousands a year by kicking the habit.
  9. No more eating out at restaurants.
  10. Swap out that vacation for a staycation.

Remember this may be a tough time but the outcome will be completely worth it!  If your goal is to save 20% calculate it by dividing the price of the house by 100, than multiplying that by 20!

Ideas For Your Own Personal Green Meadow.


Are you tired of your garden not looking satisfactory enough in spite of all the measures you took? Then it means you are not doing it right. But, why settle for just a garden, when you can get your own personally green-landscaped Grassland.

‘Green landscaping’, also known as sustainable or eco-friendly landscaping, is a method of designing and maintaining your own garden in ways that are time-saving and cost-friendly

Here are the steps to get it right with the green landscaping.

  1. Get the right plants: If it’s about designing your own garden, don’t forget the plants. Try native plants, since these will grow and adapt to the environment without dying out or choking other plants.
  2. Water properly: Even when you are watering, be careful. Daily watering in summer will not give good results. Plants have their own form of hibernation. When watering them, make sure the water reaches the roots.
  3. Avoid chemicals: If you seek the perfect greenery, then ditch the chemical fertilizers. Use compost and other organic fertilizers for the plants’ growth.
  4. No fuel emissions: Lawn mowers, and snow blowers are actually responsible for half of the pollution plaguing the area. Try not to spill gasoline anywhere near you, since it will make matters worse. When mowing the lawn, use reel push mowers and hand tools.
  5. Don’t waste anything: You don’t have to necessarily strip your garden of its present condition to get the ‘green’ look. Making some changes is more than enough. If there are any withered twigs and leaves lying around, use them to make your own compost. When buying mulch, get it in bulk amount to avoid disposing off extra plastic bags. Recycle the garden pots when necessary, and make it a point to share the large gardening tools in your possession with the neighbors.

Get the home of your dream. Minimalist style

MLS London Ontario

Interior designing is not everyone’s cup of tea, especially those who want the best for their dream homes. Even if the house has been built in the best, spectacular way, right down to the last detail, wrong choices on the buyer’s part can ruin things and botch up the end result.

If you don’t want to make any mistakes, here are a few tips that will save you the trouble of spending your money on the wrong accessories.

  1. Light colors: If your house has not been painted yet, then here’s an advice: go light. Light colors are known for giving any room, big or small, the illusion of largeness. Irrespective of the size of the house, if you are having guests home, then this will definitely help you entertain them with ease.
  2. Kitchen lamp: If you know someone in your family who shirks household shores, then this tip is just for you. Get a lamp for the kitchen counter to give the place a more intimate feel. This will keep the person in question from running off. Try an antique lamp for a better effect.
  3. Dining area-cum-gallery: The living room is the first room that comes into focus when you or your guests enter the house. Create your own dining-area in one part of the room, and put up a painting on the wall next to the area for making the area look inviting for the guests.

These details will help you keep it minimalistic and stylish both at the same time, especially if you are short on cash. With the right materials, you don’t have to worry about money…or your home looking like something that’s popped out of your (or anyone’s) worst nightmares!
