March 2013 Editor’s Letter
Got a spring in your step? March is the beginning of Spring Fever in Atlanta with weather that’sperfect for tackling your home improvement to-do list. High on that to-do list is probably your landscape and outdoor living space, which many Atlantans enjoy almost year-round thanks to our temperate climate. Winter has likely taken a toll not only on your lawn, trees and other plants, but also on your deck and other hardscapes. Bring everything back to life with this issue’s 2013 Landscape Planner. Our Landscape Planner includes a series of questions and fill-in-the-blank statements designed to identify your needs and wants for your outdoor living space and to offer tips and ideas you may not have thought about. Also included are photos and details about Atlanta area landscaping projects as well as tips and ideas from local landscape professionals, who can help you save time and money not to mention more than a few headaches when it comes to sprucing up your yard. Speaking of headaches, with spring cleaning underway, you’re likely a bit overwhelmed with the clutter that has accumulated in your home. Why not solve the problem once and for all with new home organization systems? This month’s feature on home organization offers solutions for specific problem areas such as garages, pantries, closets, medicine cabinets and more. A few bins and labels may be all you need in some areas, but a custom-designed solution can work wonders in others, offering structure and style for your belongings. Again, bringing in a professional to help can open your eyes to a world of possibilities, leaving you wondering, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Oh, and don’t forget the 35th Annual Spring Atlanta Home Show March 22-24 at Cobb Galleria Centre.
