Fourth of July Safety Tips - Homeowners - Haring Realty

Our REALTORS® know that the Fourth of July is one of Ohio's biggest holidays, and starting this year, there will be new ways to celebrate at home. Beginning on July 1, 2022, Ohio's new fireworks law goes into effect, allowing adult residents to use consumer fireworks on certain holidays throughout the year. If you've just finished shopping for Mansfield or Ashland homes for sale and want to celebrate the Fourth of July in your new yard, it's important to practice good safety habits for consumer fireworks use.

Controlling Landscaping Weeds - Homeowners - Haring Realty

The ideal for a garden or lawn does not include pesky weeds, which, if allowed to go unaddressed, can crowd out your cultivated plants, take up fertilizer and water, and leave you with a landscape far from your plan. 

No doubt you're in love with that home you bought from among Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, and you want to improve it, inside and out. Springtime is, of course, prime time for cultivating your garden and creating a healthy-looking lawn. Among other tasks, that means keeping weeds out.
