Swinging into Spring with the month of May and this month’s On The House Express! In this edition, we’ll get our gardens kick started with some help from Eden Arbors. They share the beauty of garden accents and the value they add to any home. We also have an exclusive Do-It-Yourself project on how to build an in-ground garden bed. And while you’re in the yard, catch up on the professional gardening advice offered by Rebecca Cole and her Digging, Decorating, & Design Tips. With some help from On The House, you’ll be ready to enjoy your yard just as the weather gets warmer.

Want more green? Well check out our Green Tip series, presented by Serious Materials. These tips and advice help you reduce, reuse, and recycle with ease. How about saving some green? One of the best ways is cooking at home. We have Chef Jamie with her tidbits as well as a classic recipe from Dom DeLuise that’s sure to please the entire family. Don’t forget to stop by Karel’s Korner for some inspirational words from America’s most popular personal trainer.

To help get your home ready for summer, we have tips on sprinkler maintenance, window screen repair, and ways to whip your deck into shape. May is loaded with home improvement, gardening, and design, and it’s all On The House.
