Fernando Hortelano Vázquez de Prada's curator insight, June 5, 2013 5:44 AM

Artículo donde se analiza el peso del jardín en el valor y  las posibilidades de venta de una casa. Afirma que una serie de factores tales como el estado de mantenimiento del jardín, la modernidad de su diseño, su adaptación a las condiciones climáticas locales o la economía en su conservación influirán positiva o negativamente en la decisión de compra de esa propiedad. Interesante para todos aquellas personas que esten pensando en cambiar de casa.

George Smith's curator insight, October 29, 2013 6:06 AM

In addition to home values, commercial properties also benefit from professional landscaping. Proper care is also essential.

"Keeping your pond looking good"


"The bigger the pond (the deeper the water), the easier it will be to keep the pond free of algae (such as blanket weed, etc). If you look at ponds and lakes in your local vicinity you will notice that generally speaking natural balance has been maintained. It is the small ponds, especially the ones that get a lot of sunlight, where a lot of algae can take over."
