Good Housekeeping has loads of ideas to make your yard more beautiful, including these three:

  • Brighten up your entryway with colorful potted plants, and consider repainting your front door
  • Solar accent lights next to your walkways and even in parts of your garden are an inexpensive way to brighten your yard at night. Place the walkway lamps close enough together that their light overlaps, about every four to five feet.
  • Organic mulch is much more effective than inorganic covers (like stones or shredded rubber) at keeping the ground cool, holding in moisture, and letting plant roots breathe. Organic mulch will eventually break down, enrich the soil, and need to be replaced.

The SafeWise website has several helpful tips to minimize risks in your home:

  • Falls: Staircases should have handrails, be free of clutter, and be well-lighted. Bathroom floors should have secure rugs that won’t slip, showers should have non-slip stickers, and safety rails in bathtubs and showers help maintain balance, especially for older family members.
  • Fires and carbon monoxide: It’s old news, but alarms for these hazards are essential—and always have functional batteries if the alarms aren’t hardwired. Fire extinguishers are likewise essential.
  • Poisons: Store medications properly, keep chemicals and cleaning products safely stored, and, if you use detergent pods, lock them up.
  • Additional hazards include choking, strangling (drape cords), cuts, drowning, and burns.
