Starting a Backyard Garden

Not every homeowner is willing or able to dedicate backyard space to a big garden, but that shouldn't deter you from looking into options for a very rewarding hobby. Whether through simply growing a few herbs or flowers in containers, or by tilling a plot for bountiful harvests, gardening is known to improve physical activity and help us to develop personal resilience and learn to embrace acceptance on a psychological level. If you are a beginner, do not dismay - you will be surprised at the advice you can easily gather just by researching online or at a garden-centre.  Start with a plan based on the time you want to invest and the results you want to achieve, such as abundant foliage or luscious fruits and vegetables. Although each type requires a specific care, indigenous plants tend to be hardiest. After determining growing schedules and sunlight requirements, you need to decide when and where to plant. Make sure taller species do not overshadow neighbouring sunlight-seekers, bu

Spring Preparation Checklist

As the weather begins to turn warm, we all have the urge to shed heavy winter clothes, refresh our surroundings, and get out of doors. After harsh weather and time spent indoors, there are plenty of chores that need to be done every spring so that our summers can be a bit more carefree. Following a spring cleaning list of chores will help you avoid missing an important task and stay organized. Taking care of problems while they are small will ultimately save money and time. Start Indoors, and Work Your Way Outdoors Even before the weather is warm enough to take care of outdoor chores, you can get a head start on indoor spring cleaning. While there are always areas that need to be cleaned daily or weekly, some tasks only require seasonal cleaning or check-ups. Change Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector Batteries Changing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors takes only a few minutes but is one chore that can mean the difference in life and death. Even a small kitchen or laundr

Installing an EV Charger at Home

If you are considering purchasing an electric vehicle (EV), you'll need to determine how you will charge it. Invariably, interested homeowners, who have available space, will prefer to have their own private EVSE (electrical vehicle supply equipment), rather than needing to rely on the availability of a spot at a public station. Before deciding on an EVSE, key factors need to be considered, such as the plug design of the selected vehicle, (e.g., SAE J1772), battery charge capacity and typical trip distances.  You may want to consider potential future vehicle purchases that will likely have greater batter storage capacity as innovations continue to develop. In the meantime, consider a minimum a "Level 2" 240-volt service, similar to the service required for a stove or clothes dryer outlet. While a standard household 120-volt plug-in may work, it will require significantly more time to fully charge the battery. As well, you should consider how an EVSE can best contribute to

GTA REALTORS® Release March 2022 Stats

There were almost 11,000 Greater Toronto Area (GTA) home sales reported in March 2022, capping off the third-best March and second-best first quarter on record. Tight market conditions continued to support a double-digit annual pace of price growth, with an average selling price of $1.3 million. The average selling price dipped slightly month-over-month, bucking the regular seasonal trend. “Now is the time for governments to govern and focus on measures that are proven to increase housing supply. The GTA population will experience rapid growth in the coming years as our region’s economic strength and diversity continues to attract people from around the world. In order to sustain this growth, we need adequate housing supply and choice. This needs to be the focus of policymakers rather than short-term and ineffective measures to artificially suppress demand. Evidence-based decision-making should inform government policies, and we encourage representatives at all levels of government to
