Your list is great but I would like to add a number 6. Caulk, Caulk, Caulk! Close up those crack and crevices around doors, windows, and any pipe or facet, etc that comes from the outside to the inside.

In addition, go up in your attic and foam around vent pipes, etc that comes up from your second or first floors. Why heat or air condition your attic? Losing heat or air conditioning just increases your energy consumption.

The last house I lived in was really leaky, so I gained alot of experience finding leaks! anna www.green-talk.com


One thing to be careful of when watering in the evening is not to cause rotting of the roots.
