House With Nice Yard

The end of summer does not equal the end of lawn care.

Normally, homeowners think of lawn care during the spring and summer. But the cooler months of the year is not a hiatus from taking care of your lawn. The cooler temperatures and occasional rainfall the season ushers in is a welcome change for your lawn, and the ideal time to prepare your lawn for the upcoming spring season – but only if you want thick, lush green grass.

Continue Mowing Through Fall. It might seem like your grass stops growing in the fall, but in reality your lawn is quickly absorbing nutrients and moisture to prepare for the winter that lies ahead.

Idaho is one of the lucky places that experiences distinct four season weather with fairly temperate days and nights throughout the year. However, average winter temperatures do dip into the 30's and occasionally into the 20's overnight, so it's important to protect your Idaho home from the elements.

Keep your home in tip-top shape throughout the winter by beginning the job in autumn. One of the first things you should do is have your furnace inspected. It's important to ensure that your furnace is operational, energy efficient and of-course, safe. Have a HVAC professional come out and have a look. The repairman will clean the furnace, change the filter, check for leaks and unhealthy gases and ensure everything is operating as it should.

Rock climbing

My life isn't ordinary because I don't live in an ordinary place. I toss my gear into the hatchback and jump into the seat, ready to take on the challenges of the cliff face just above Boise, Idaho. I've been hooked to the natural terrain the Boise Valley offers ever since my first climb here, over two years ago. As I drive along the winding, scenic pathway up to the Lucky Peak Reservoir towards my favorite spot, the Black Cliffs, my heart races with anticipation.

I remind myself again to thank the Boise Idaho native, who convinced me that the best place to get my excess energy out was right there at home with him, the region's headquarters for all things recreational. It is available for all in some way or another.  It's thick in the air. It…

          When it comes to populated cities in the borders of Idaho there is one that stands out from the rest. As the capital of Idaho, Boise is a very important city. However, many capital cities across the United States (And even in some countries) are not the most important city when it comes to the economy or the largest city when it comes to population. Just look at the capital of the United States. New York City is the economic center of the country with its banks and stock market, but Washington D.C. is our permanent capital. What makes Boise so special then, to be both the capital of the state and the most populous as well? That is the question, of course, but I think I can do something to shed some light on why Boise is such a…
