Are you looking to improve the look of your humble abode, but have put it off because you’re on a tight budget or due to lack of time? DIY Network host and home improvement expert, Jay Baker believes you should start out small and “get the ball rolling.” It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you do too much too quickly, so take it easy. He also believes in having a plan. It’s nearly impossible to build a deck, plant a garden and pour a concrete patio in a weekend, start and complete one project at a time, it’ll help build momentum, you’ll feel more accomplished and not so exhausted.
Jay believes that when it comes to working in the yard and mowing the lawn, “it all begins and ends with a good lawnmower”, he loves the Yard Machine 21 inch push mower. It even has rear bagging option and mulching capabilities. How about that! If you want to keep your lawn mower in tip top shape make sure you tune it up every spring. He highly recommends Briggs & Stratton tune up kits which only take 30 minutes to perform and include everything you need.
If you’ve browsed Pinterest as of late, you’ve noticed how popular outdoor lighting is these days. People are not only using them for relaxing on their back porch while reading a good book in the evening, but family barbecues, lavish weddings, fancy events, and so on. Jay loves Trex Outdoor Lighting, since they’re easy to install and energy efficient – “a little ambient light is icing on the cake in terms of enjoying your outdoor space that you’ve worked hard to make look beautiful”.
