How Landscaping improves the mood of your home.

garden-landscaping-ideas-1Landscaping a home can range from simple using grass to going all out with grass, shrubs, and stonework. Colours tend to bring about particular moods. Colours in landscaping can be defined by different types of flowers. 


Relaxation is highly achieved by water features. These can range from garden ponds, water falls, water fountains, etc. The sight and sound of moving water creates a mood of relaxation that is a known form of meditation. 

Bright and Chirpy

Bright colours gives the sense of high energy and happy feeling. Happiness around your home is something that every human person would love to achieve. Having a garden with bright colours to start your morning can bring you a happy day. 


Stonework in Landscaping can be very beautiful. The use of nature's artwork can be presented in just using gravel, to getting carved stones. There is a wide range of material that is available on the market that can be used to facilitate different designs that can be just plain or glorious!

How building an energy efficient home will save you money.

Building houses in Jamaica typically blocks (bricks), mortar, steel, roofing. Because of our tropical climate, most persons build without insulation to protect against certain elements. While Jamaicans don't necessarily need to protect against the cold, the heat is becoming unbearable. 

Building green in Jamaica will cost a bit more but long term, it saves. If a house is built with insulation in the roof, that minimizes the heat that is disbursed in the building, hence decreases the need for high cost of cooling. 

Wall insulation also helps as most structures are built from concrete and concrete holds the heat during the days and releases it when the time is cooler.

What do you think about spending the extra cash to build green?
