Every homeowner takes pride in their home's landscape. In fact, among most homeowners throughout suburban America, there’s probably an unspoken competition of who has the best yard in the neighborhood. In Colorado, many people have struggled with keeping grass over the last few years as our climate continues to dry out. Many homeowners are finding new ways to keep water costs down, looks up, and their yards functional for their lifestyle. Here are a few ways you can accomplish these three key elements to create your ultimate backyard sanctuary.
Spring means warmer weather, outdoor activities, and home improvements. It also means tax season, we know, nobody really wants to talk about taxes.

Okay, poll time. How many people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions throughout the year? For some reason, many people have a tough time following through with their resolutions - especially if they're fitness related. Here are a few tips to help you keep track of your health and wellness goals.
Make Your Resolution Realistic
It’s easier to take things in small bits, right? That holds true for your fitness resolutions. Rather than having an unattainable goal, make your resolution real. You won’t be overwhelmed, and you’ll find it more rewarding.
Make Your Resolution Specific
Make your resolution specific and detailed rather than vague. For example, instead of saying, “I’m going to exercise in 2018,” say, “I’m going to exercise three times a week in 2018.” A clear goal gives you something that’s measurable and makes it easier to meet. Plus, when you’re specific, you’re more likely to hold yourself accountable and keep your New Year’s resolution.
Make a Schedule
Commit to making your resolution a reality by putting it on your calendar and setting a reminder (or reminders). Schedule the days you’re going to work out. If it’s on the schedule the excuse of not having time will disappear and this will lead you to keep your New Year’s resolution throughout the year. We’re always getting reminders about meetings and events, make it so that you remind yourself about your resolution.
Track Your Progress
Don’t just set and forget your resolution. Check in on yourself. Tracking your progress could be very rewarding if you’re making progress if you find your resolution becoming too complicated, make adjustments. Set yourself up for success!
When you track your progress and you see improvement, or you’ve met a small goal, reward yourself for doing a good job. Keep this going until you achieve your resolution.
For many its more about the time it takes to get to the gym 20-30 mins each way plus the workout, this usually means people have to schedule 2 hours or more out of their day to workout — which is not realistic for most folks especially those with families.
