About Me

Hiring and Communicating with a Home Cleaning Service

Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Annabelle Collins. My husband and I live in a large house with our two teenage children. We’re fortunate in that we’re able to have a cleaning service come and clean on a weekly basis. In the past, I found that it was difficult for me to exert myself when it came to hiring and communicating with our cleaning service. I’ve never been very authoritative, and that shone through in a not good way. I wanted things to be done in a certain way, but found it difficult to ask for what I wanted. I have come to realize that in order for the service to do the job I want to be done, I have to ask for it to happen. I doubt that I’m alone in the fact that this is difficult, and want to share my experience and growth.

2 Things You Can Add To Your Garden

by Vicki Burns

If you have a garden, you want to do everything you can to make sure that your garden looks as good as possible. Once you have added in all the flowers and other flora that you are interested in, you might want to add in other features to augment and enhance the look of your garden. If you do this, you have all kinds of choices out there to choose from. 

Stepping Stones

One thing that you can do is put stepping stones in your garden. You can put the stones in any pattern you want and anywhere you want in your garden. If you have a particular area that you want to highlight, you can have the stepping stones lead to and around that particular spot. The nice thing about using stepping stones is that there are so many different things you can choose to use. For example, you could go with natural stone products for your path. These would be stones that were quarried and then cut down or shaped to be stepping stones. If you choose to go this way, you can find stones that are all the exact same shape, or you can find stones that are more free form. Those would be a variety of more natural kinds of shapes. You can also get cultured stone, which would be stone that is formed out of the chips and dust from the other stones that have been cut, shaped, or dug up. 


You could also get a bench or two to put in your garden. After all, you've put all this hard work into your garden, you might as well be able to sit out there and enjoy everything that you have done. The nice thing about benches for your garden is that you can get them made out of all kinds of materials. That can include things like cement, wood, metal, or even stone slabs. You can also get benches that have been made out of a combination. For example, you might be able to find a bench that has stone legs with a wooden seat and back. 

If you have put a lot of work into your garden, you want to be able to enhance it and make it look better. You can do that by adding in different features like paths, fountains, benches, or other similar things which will make your garden into something just a little more.
