3 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Lot

Viera Builders builds beautiful and efficient master-planned communities. Before deciding on a lot to build your house on, there are several things to consider, including personal preferences, location, and the general neighborhood. Preferences You will want to make sure that you choose a lot that fits your lifestyle and your personal preferences. For example, if you plan on putting in a garden, you will need plenty of sunlight in your backyard. The front of your home may also need enough sun in order to frame your landscaping. If you have a family that includes young children, you might choose a cul-de-sac. Cul-de-sac lots are typically much wider in the back and narrower near the street.

Am I Watering My Grass Enough?

In general, grass needs about 2 inches of water a week. Homes in Viera are on a reclaimed water system and are able to water any day of the week. This is the city’s way of beneficially recycling billions of gallons of water. We recommend watering your lawn early in the morning when the air is cooler and the wind has not picked up yet. Watering your lawn at night is not a good idea because the water will cling too long to the grass and damage the blades. Watering during the heat of the day is also not good for your lawn and should be avoided. The best times to water your lawn are between 4 and 10 am.

Repairing Your Screen Enclosure

Most screen enclosures are constructed with ceramic coated steel screws. As time passes, weather and other factors may rust the screws, making the enclosure look dingy. It’s a good idea to have the screws replaced as soon as you begin to notice that they’re rusting. The ceramic fasteners may also become loose or fragment. This can impact the structure of your screen enclosure. Vinyl and aluminum framed screen panels require less maintenance and retain the screen differently than the wood framed screen panels. In these styles the screen is held in a small channel built into the aluminum or vinyl frame and a thin tubular gasket called a spline. Does your screen enclosure need repairing? If your patio, lanai or other enclosure has holes or tears in...
