Summer is an ideal time for backyard cookouts, trips to the pool, catching fireflies in the evening, and spending quality time with family and friends. Whether a sparkling community pool or lots of open green spaces, our HHHunt communities offer many amenities well-suited for summer fun!
Although the summer is a carefree time for us, it can be brutal on our homes and lawns. The hot temperatures, long days, and little rain add extra importance to home maintenance. Even with the new energy efficient homes featured in our communities, there are a number of proactive steps homeowners can take to keep energy bills low and lawns looking green. Here are some of our favorite tips:
- Good Housekeeping has simple and cost-saving advice that will keep your home cool during the dog days of summer without sending your electricity bill through the roof.
- Everyone loves a good summer guest, but not an unwelcome one. The National Association of Home Builders offers insight on how to keep unwanted guests of the insect variety away from your home.
- Realtor.com has a lot of helpful hints for mowing your lawn in the summer, including the best height for various types of grass and how to recycle your grass clippings.
