Packing for a Move

Welcome to my website. I’m hoping to provide you with some useful packing tips. My name is Ellen Monday. My family and I moved from a very large home to a large home. My point being, although we still live in a large house, we did downsize. It was almost like packing for two moves because we had belongings going to the new house and some going to storage. We had to make decisions about what we wanted to keep, store and get rid of. I have some tips on how we made those decisions, and the best ways we found to pack. Items that were going into storage were packed differently than those we were moving to the new house. Boxes had to be carefully and clearly marked so we didn’t end up storing our everyday dishes or something tragic like that! Hope you enjoy my blog.

Hire An Electrician To Help With Illuminating The Plants In Your Backyard

Aaron Carroll

Putting a lot of time and effort into making your backyard look beautiful is a rewarding experience, especially when you own the home that you put all the work into. But, once the sun goes down, you may not be able to appreciate your landscape due to reduced visibility.

If you want to be able to go into the yard in the evening and see your plants, you will need to add outdoor decorative lighting. This will also make the space more enticing to spend time with family and friends. You will also have an easier time maintaining the yard when you can work on it at nighttime. Hiring an electrician is an ideal way to get the help that you need to illuminate your plants effectively.


Although you may have plants spread throughout the landscape, you may also have a dedicated garden. This is where you may grow herbs and vegetables that you use for cooking or giving to family and friends when you are yielding more than you can handle for your meals.

You can illuminate the garden by adding ground lights in a perimeter around the whole space. This will help you get around at night, but you can also benefit from overhead lighting. This is where a lamp post or two can help to give you helpful light for watering or harvesting.


Healthy trees in your backyard deserve to be seen, even when it is dark outside. Well lights work well when situated in the right spot because they will illuminate the trees you point them at. You can angle them in many ways so that you can focus on the trunk, branches, or both. These lights make it easy to get playful with your yard by getting light bulbs in colors such as red or blue.


If you work during the day, you may find it tough to maintain your yard at times. When you have an overly busy work week, you may not have enough time to water plants and remove debris. You will appreciate when an electrician helps you illuminate your entire backyard so that you can handle these important responsibilities even if you happen to get home from work after dark.

Whether you know where you want the lights to go or you are having a tough time deciding, an electrician will have the knowledge and expertise to make sure the final setup works well.
