Dog Etiquette 101

Do you have a cute furry friend that is a part of your family? Do you want your neighbors to love your dog as much as you love him or her? Be a responsible dog owner and follow some of these guidelines so you and your pup have a great reputation around the neighborhood!

Leash Your Pup
You might like to watch your pup run free however, your neighbors most likely won’t feel the same way, especially if your dog ends up in their yard. When you are walking through the neighborhood, it’s best practice to keep your dog on a leash. The ASPCA has also stated that when you walk your dog, keep the leash six feet or less on sidewalks and if there are joggers or active people on your path don’t use a retractable leash. If you really want to let your dog roam free consider an electric fence or finding a dog park near your neighborhood!

Know Thy Dog
Does your dog bark at the mailman or get overly excited when he or she sees a squirrel? Be a responsible dog owner and know your dog. If you dog has some issues with control, try to train out their bad habits. Take your pup’s negative reaction and train them to do something positive instead. For example, if your dog barks non-stop every time a guest arrives, train them to bring a toy to the guest instead so they won’t end up barking and jumping all over them. Just remember to replace a negative reaction into a positive one when training your dog! Also, if you’re walking your dog, be aware of your surroundings. Keep your pup on a tight leash and get ahead and avoid anything that makes your dog lose control.

Dog Meets Dog
If there are other dogs in the neighborhood or you meet other dogs on your daily walk, it’s always a good idea to introduce your dog to other dogs. Give your dogs a chance to familiarize themselves with each other. However, if your dog is on a leash, it is not an appropriate time for your dog to play. If your dog is jumping all over another dog, many dog owners will frown upon this interaction. Let your dog meet other dogs, but make sure they are well behaved and under control.

Keep Barking to a Minimal
Dogs bark. It’s in their nature. However, that doesn’t mean incessant barking is acceptable. A dog’s bark usually indicates that they want something or need more exercise or attention. So if the barking lasts more than one minute, then you should probably pay attention to them and figure out what they need. If they won’t stop barking then seek a professional to try to figure out what the problem might be.

Be Considerate When Introducing Your Pup
You might love dogs, but some people don’t feel comfortable around animals. It’s always best to be considerate when introducing your pup to other people or children. Always ask the other person if they are okay or if they are comfortable letting your dog say hi. Also, a greeting should never include your dog jumping on anyone. Try to train your dog to say hi in an acceptable manor that makes everyone feel comfortable.

Be Prepared
You pup is bound to go to the bathroom when you are on your walks. Make sure you are prepared. Nothing is worse when a neighbor finds someone else’s dog droppings are left in their yard. So make sure to be prepared to clean up after your pooch!

Vacation Forget-Me-Nots

 

It’s that time of year again. Summer is almost here and everyone can’t wait to enjoy a family vacation this year. However, before you take off and savor your summer vacay, here are some vacation forget-me-nots to keep you relaxed and at ease throughout your vacation!

1. Tell a Neighbor
Whether you leave your house for a small weekend trip or a luxuriously long vacation, you should always tell one of your neighbors or relatives that you’ll be gone. It’s nice to know someone is looking over your empty house and making sure everything is in order while you’re away! Also, if you don’t put a hold on your mail, you could always ask your neighbor to collect your mail for the time being. Just make sure to return the favor while they’re on their vacation!

2. Shut off Water and Set Your AC Higher
To save money and energy, shut off your water and set your AC temperature higher before you leave for vacation. With warmer weather upon us, you are bound to start using the AC more. However, there is no need for air conditioning or water when you are on vacation. Don’t waste energy and money on an empty house!

3. Pet Sitter
If you have any pets at home make sure to take care of their needs too. Whether its dropping them off to a kennel or hiring a pet sitter, you’ll want to make sure your furry friend is taken care of. If you’re able to take your pet on your vacation, even better!

4. Unplug Appliances
Your appliances won’t be in use while you’re away, so make sure you unplug them to save energy and money. Unplug your toaster, coffee maker, blender, chargers, anything you can think of that is plugged in, unplug it!

5. Lock all Windows and Doors
This seems like a given, but you would be surprised how many people forget to lock all their windows and doors when they leave for vacation. So before you leave, double check just to make sure! It will give you peace of mind while you’re trying to relax during vacation.

6. Lower the Blinds
Take an extra step to secure your home and belongings and lower your blinds before you leave. Don’t tempt anyone to look in and see what you own.

7. Leave Some Lights On
Most people turn off all of their lights when they leave the house for an extended period of time. However, it’s smarter to leave some lights on or use a light timer while you’re away. Leaving lights on will give the impression that someone is home, making your home less of a target. However, if you live in one of Judd Builders wonderful planned communities, you won’t have to worry too much about a break-in. Planned communities deter many burglars due to the close-knit community life, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, so keep some lights on while your away.

6 Lawn Care Tips for Greener Grass

It’s almost that time of the year again where lawn care becomes a weekly task unless you live in one of Judd Builders wonderful communities that have a Homeowner’s Association (HOA)! If you do live in a community with a HOA, you won’t have to worry too much about lawn care. However, you could still make your lawn the talk of the town by keeping it green and plush all season long with a little work and these six lawn care tips!

1. Sharpen your Mowers Blades
Before you begin mowing your lawn, you’ll want to check the blades of your mower. Make sure the blade are sharp and not dull. If your blades are dull, you’ll want to get them sharpened or else they’ll tear off grass rather than cut it clean. Also, you want to keep inspecting your mower throughout the season to keep it in tiptop shape for the best cut and performance!

2. Don’t feed the Grass When it Turns Brown
Some people tend to worry when they see their grass turn brown. When this happens the best thing to do is to not do anything. Don’t feed the grass with fertilizer or weed control. These products might actually do more harm than good. Brown grass doesn’t mean the grass is dead, it just means the grass has gone dormant. Instead, begin to water it to bring it out of its dormant state.

3. Rake Up Downed Leaves From the Fall
If there are any downed leaves left over from the fall make sure to rake them up as soon as you can. These dead soggy leaves will suffocate any new sprouts from sprouting in the spring, leaving you with dead spots all over your lawn.

4. Mow Smarter
Believe it or not, you’ll want to let your grass grow out to about 3-3.5 inches for the plushiest, greenest grass. Taller grass blades offer more shade, which kills weeds naturally, while also shading the soil, which reduces evaporation and keeps the soil moist. Maintain the height of about 3-3.5 inches all season until the fall, which you can begin cutting it short again! Also, inspect the grass after you cut it to see if it’s time to tune up your lawn mower.

5. Kill Crab Grass Before it Spreads
The only thing to do to prevent crab grass from growing is to apply crabgrass preventer. Apply the preventer around the second or third time you’ve mowed the lawn to stop crabgrass or any other seed from sprouting. Crabgrass generally starts sprouting a few weeks after the grass greens, which is also another indicator for when you should apply the preventer.

6. Fertilize
You should always fertilize your lawn for the springtime in order to achieve green grass. The best kind of fertilizer to use is a slow-release, organic fertilizer, but some fertilizers don’t work for all lawns. If you really want green grass, figure out what type of soil and grass you have and do a soil test to see what should be added to your fertilizer. Once you’ve figured out what you need, start spreading the fertilizer on the outer edges and then cover the middle. Don’t be afraid to overlap a few inches on each pass!

1. Prepare in Advance
Don’t do everything the day of your party. Instead, prepare everything you can in advance, so the day of you can enjoy the party as much as your guests. Shopping, cleaning, and cooking is a recipe for one stressful day. Organize a week in advance and plan out a schedule so you won’t get too overwhelmed.

2. Know Your Limits
Not only do you need to know you limits when hosting a party, you need to know the limits of your house! Don’t invite too many people where you can’t accommodate for them.

Ideas for Home Efficiency

Many homeowners want to save on their energy bills. There are plenty of easy ways to save that won’t cause any huge changes in lifestyle. The easiest way is to make your home more efficient. So here are some ideas for home efficiency that will help you save energy!

Landscape to Save Energy
Believe it or not, landscaping can help you save on your energy bills. Be smart with landscaping and make sure to plant trees on the south and west sides of your home. When fully grown, the trees will provide much needed shade in the summer but also provide sun in the winter through the bare branches. However, don’t forget to maintain landscaping so your trees don’t become a liability in winter. Also, when planting use low-maintenance plants that are native to the area. This will cut down on water usage, making your home more efficient.

Add or Use Ceiling Fans
If you have ceiling fans great! Use them to your advantage to save energy and make your home more efficient. Ceiling fans use about the same amount of energy as a light bulb, making them less expensive than running your cooling or heating system. You’ll want to change the rotation of your fans depending on the seasons. During winter switch your fan blades to spin clockwise to help push the hot air down from the ceiling. During the summer switch the blades to counterclockwise to push cool air down. By doing this you can save up to 10% on your heating bill in the winter and possibly 40% in the summer!

Modify Your Most Used Lighting
Think about the five most used lights and rooms in your house. Change out any light bulbs that aren’t energy efficient and you could save up to 60 dollars a year. Most of the time the most used rooms and light fixtures tend to be outdoor lamps, kitchen fixtures, bathroom vanities, and the living room. So you can start in these rooms and convert older incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulbs to energy efficient LED bulbs. Once they’re replaced, start thinking about replacing the other lighting used in your house.

Wash with Cold Water
You can ignore the myth that you need to use hot water for whites. Instead use cold water and cold-water detergent to start saving. Also, when you go to dry your clothes use your dryers full load capacity.

Air Dry Dishes
Many dishwashers have a heat drying settings that dry your dishes without the maintenance of hand drying. Even though that’s extremely helpful, it isn’t efficient. Instead empty out your dishwasher and let your dishes air-dry. It might not be maintenance free, but it definitely is low-maintenance and efficient!

Match Your Pans to Your Burner
Most people don’t think about this, but when your pan doesn’t match the size of your burner you can lose a huge amount of the burners heat. So if you have an eight-inch burner, make sure to use an eight-inch pan.

Use Window Treatments
You might have installed them for decor purposes only, but you can use your window treatments to make your home more energy efficient! During the summer they can help keep unwanted heat out when you shut them. During the winter they can help keep the heat in. So stop looking at your window treatments as decor and utilize them to their full potential to help you save energy!

Kitchen Organizing Tips

Kitchens are one of the busiest places in a house. No matter how hard you try to keep it organized, it somehow still gets messy. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to keep your kitchen organized. Try out these quick tips to help you organize your kitchen and maximize your space.

Use Risers in Every Cabinet
Using risers in every cabinet will give you more surface space to stack and organize your dishes. This is a savvy way to maximize your space and keep you kitchen organized. By optimizing your space, you’ll be able to store more containers and keep track of where everything is located.

Use a Shower Caddy
Shower caddies can have multiple purposes other than storing shower supplies. Instead, use the shower caddy in your kitchen to store an array of items. Find a great place to hang your caddy and get creative about what your caddy will carry. Will you use it to store fresh produce or will you store recipe cards in it? You can choose whatever you want to store in it to help you stay organized!

Use Mason Jars as Storage
This idea is great for everyone who loves fun DIY projects. This craft is fairly easy to make and is quite charming. Once the project is complete, you can store all of your utensils inside. Or you could place flowers in the jars to brighten up the kitchen instead. If you’re interested in this DIY project, click here.

Use a Tension Rod Under the Sink
Many individuals store cleaning supplies and spray bottles in the cabinet under the sink. However, there is a way to maximize the space under the sink and keep it organized. Take a tension rod or shower rod and hang it in the cabinet under the sink. Then hang all of the spray bottles on it. By doing this you’ll create additional space to store other cleaning supplies that can’t hang from the kitchen rod.

Use Drawer Inserts
Drawer inserts are one of the best organizing tools to use to keep your kitchen clean. You can find drawer inserts at Bed Bath and Beyond or The Container Store. Organize your drawers accordingly and never question where anything is ever again!

Use Over the Sink Cutting Board
Although every Judd Builders home has ample amount of counter space, you can add more by using a sink cutting board, which is not only convenient when cutting up food, but it’s stylish as well! Not only do you get extra counter space by doing this, but any juices from cutting fruit or vegetables will drain straight to the sink, saving you from having to clean your counters. The best part about this organizing tip is that you can make it a fun DIY project if you’re interested! But if you aren’t a DIY type you can easily buy them here.

Create an Effective Workspace at Home

Forget about cramming a small desk and metal chair into a room and calling it your office. Instead, design a home office that reflects the comfort of your own home as well as your personal style. Not only will it help you work more efficiently, but it will also enhance your work life! So here are nine tips to help you create an effective workspace that you deserve!

Paint a Color You Love
If there is a color that you absolutely love and keeps you motivated, consider painting your office with that color. However, don’t paint all the walls the same color. Think about using the color you love as a statement wall and opt for neutrals for the other walls.

Don’t Sacrifice Form From Function
Before you invest in furniture, think about your workflow. Only buy furniture that will serve you, not the other way around. Look for pieces that are beautiful and functional that will enhance your efficiency and will keep you working!

Create a Comfy Space
Your desk is for active work. However, when you need to read something or think, it’s better to sit somewhere comfy. Not only will it help break up a monotonous workday, but it will also provide a space to get creative. This is constantly overlooked for home offices, but it offers the most perks. If you have the space in your office, think about creating a comfy corner to think.

Add Greenery and Art
Bring the outside in by adding greenery to your office. Plants are known to make people happier. However, if you don’t feel like looking after a houseplant, decorate with art that you absolutely love and inspires you.

Embrace Natural Light, But Have Lamps
Don’t recreate the corporate cubical by placing your desk against a wall. Embrace natural light and place your desk near windows. However, don’t forget to have lamps in your office for the later hours. Don’t depend solely on overhead lighting; it is highly inadequate for work. So try a small table lamp that has a softer glow.

Follow Ergonomic Rules
There are a few ergonomic rules to follow that will help you stay focused and working all day. First, your computer should either be at eye level or a little below, which will combat against eye fatigue. Make sure your arms and feet have something to rest on. Your arms should be parallel to the floor while you feet should be firmly on the floor (or foot rest if you are smaller). Most importantly you should have an ergonomic chair that you’ll love sitting in. Having a chair that makes your feel comfortable all day will help you “put in the hours.”

Get Creative with Storage
Using the square footage of your home office successfully is a huge aspect of an effective workspace. Storage can often times take up a lot of space in home offices. So get creative and figure out what works best for you. Would a bookcase work better than a filing cabinet? If your home office is on the smaller side organize vertically and horizontally to conserve space. Or if you’ve turned the guest room into a home office, utilize the closet space to stay organized.

Hide Things You Don’t Want to Look At
Seeing all those unwanted cords can become an eyesore for you office. So try and hide them as much as you can so it doesn’t affect your workflow!

Overstock
If you work from home constantly you’ll want to stock up on everyday office supplies that are essential to your work. This will keep you from running out to the supply store every few minutes. Also, consider having a small fridge or coffee maker in your office so you won’t have to travel too far from your work. Just remember to take a break! You don’t want to end up spending all your time in your office.

10 Ways to Declutter Your House

1. Make a Date With Your Space
Decluttering any space, let alone your house, takes a good amount time. So, block off a morning or afternoon and begin organizing. However, don’t expect to get the whole house done in a day. It’ll take time to clean and organize every room!

2. Make a Plan of Attack
Before you start organizing make a plan of attack. What room are you going to start with? How much do you want to achieve in the time you set aside? It’s usually a good idea to start with the area in your house that is the most frustrating. Get this space out of the way and you’ll feel unstoppable.

3. Arm Yourself
It’s smart to get your supplies ready before you start organizing. You’ll need trash bags, for trash and for recyclables, a box for charitable items, and a box for items that don’t belong in that space. Also, it’s a good idea to clean the space while your organizing it. Have cleaning supplies around to wipe down the area once everything is cleared out of the space. Not only will the space be organized, but it will also be clean as well.

4. Don’t Bite Off More Than You Can Chew
The best way to declutter your house is to focus on one space at a time. It’s nearly impossible to clean the whole house in an entire day. Go room by room and don’t start another room if you’re feeling unfocused. You’ll most likely organize less because you’ll be frustrated and less efficient.

5. Organize First; Buy Second
It’s tempting to buy a bunch of containers to help you organize, but you should always organize before you buy any containers. You never know what containers will function best in your space. So organize first and then assess what you need container-wise.

6. Group Like Items Together
When organizing, a good way to get through a bunch of clutter is to group like items together. Do you have a bunch of black pants that you hardly wear? Keep two or three pairs and donate the rest. The same goes for any other like items as well!

7. Be Honest With Yourself
The hardest part of organizing is being honest with yourself. It’s always hard to let things go, but if you haven’t worn or used an item in a year its best to get rid of it. Don’t try to convince yourself that you’ll use it later down the road. If you haven’t used it already, you won’t use it later.

8. Elevate Items Off The Floor
The easiest and quickest way to make any room look more organized is to elevate items off the floor. Don’t let toys, tools, or clothes sit around on the floor, use shelving to your advantage and get those items off the floor.

9. Complete Each Task Completely
Your house will never be decluttered if you don’t follow through with each task. Never stop in the middle of organizing and leave a room unfinished. You’re more likely to never go back to finish decluttering the room. Instead, go room by room and make sure to complete each task completely before moving on!

10. Your Space Will Get Messy Again — Don’t Worry
Just because you’ve decluttered your house doesn’t mean that it will stay that way. Expect regular upkeep. There are always ingoing and outgoing items that will eventually clutter your home. However, because you’ve organized the house before, it will be easier tidying up when things get a little messy.

Bonus: Get Through Organizing By Having Fun!
How can organizing be fun you ask? Well, there plenty of ways! Make organizing a design challenge. Integrate your personal style into the storage bins you choose and make it a part of the overall room design. Or make it a game! Make a set of rules and goals for yourself and you’ll find that your organize a room quicker!
