Creating a Landscape Feature Out of Your Pond

When I first bought my home, I was unsure about the man-made pond in the backyard. The water was green and there was no wildlife to be seen. I decided to work with the water feature instead of spending money on fill materials to get rid of the pond. I added a water fountain to the space first that featured a submersible pump and I later added fish. After installing a filtration system and an aeration device, my pond became the central landscaping feature on my property. I made a lot of mistakes as I completed the installations. I had to learn about the biological filtration and I had to figure out how to control algae with shade plants. I want you to have an easier time than I did creating a water feature, so read my blog to find out what you need to do.

5 Tips For Bringing Positive Energy Into Your Dining Room

Bringing positive energy into your home ensures that every room serves a purpose and makes it feel complete, warm, and happy. Also, you can achieve serenity in your home by banishing all negative energy that can take away the appeal of your home. Here's some tips for adding some positive energy into your dining room:

1. Choose the Right Size of Dining Room Table: When you are considering the purchase of a dining room table for your home, you need to be sure that you choose the right size. A dining room that is too big for your dining room will make guests feel cramped and trapped inside, which can be discomforting. On the other hand, a small dining room table in a larger space can make the space feel awkward and uncomfortable. 

2. Don't Let It be Neglected: Too often, homeowners ignore their dining room and choose to instead eat in the living room. This then allows the dining room to become a dumping ground for unwanted mail and other items that make the dining room become cramped and cluttered. This takes away all energy from the dining room and makes it unappealing. Instead of making the dining room become this type of space, consider getting the whole family to start eating in the dining room again.

3. Avoid Lighting that Points Straight Down: When adding lighting into the space, you want to be sure that you choose lighting that is going to light up the whole surface of the table. This makes the light feel abundant, which then makes meals that you eat there feel more abundant and filling. 

4. Add a Rug: Rugs in the dining room are a great way to help ground the furniture. This makes sitting at the dining room table feel more engaging and enhances the appeal of having intimate conversation, as well.

5. A Wood Table is Best: Instead of a glass table, consider a wooden table. Glass tables bring in too much nervous energy since it makes it seem that everything is breakable. You want to be able to enjoy your meals comfortably without having to worry too much every time you set your fork or knife back down on the table. Plus, wood tables feel warmer than glass, which can be more comforting. 

By following these five tips, you can be sure that you introduce a dining space into your home that is enjoyable to have family meals together in and friendly conversations with guests.
