Home & Garden Blog

It is becoming a common occurrence to hear stories about peeping Toms. A peeping Tom is someone who gets sexual pleasure from secretly watching people undress or engage in sexual activity. It is a feeling of invasion to know someone is watching you. If you are hearing reports of a peeping Tom, then you do not want to become the next victim. Read on to find out how to keep people from seeing inside of your home.

Put Up Blinds

Blinds are one of the ways to stop someone from seeing what is going on in your house. These window coverings allow you to open and close them. They work like an insulator. You can control the amount of natural lighting that enters your home throughout the day. Blinds can keep cool air in during the summer and warm air in during the winter.

You can also choose from a variety of different blinds. The different styles may include wood, faux wood, roller shades and roman shades. Your style of choice is usually based on the use, your budget and style preference.

Install Decorative Window Film

Window film can give you a sense of privacy. It comes in sheets with a backing that can be peeled off. The film also comes with a solution that is used to apply it to your window. You should also determine what materials the film is made of before buying. It is important to not buy something that release harsh chemicals. You should look for film that does not contain phthalates and PVC.

Form A Neighborhood Watch

If you do not have a neighborhood watch, then you should form one. Neighbors must look out for each other. The only way to stop a peeping Tom is to catch him in the act. Peeping Toms enjoy showing up at weird times when they think no one is watching. People are always home at different times in a neighborhood. You must tell your neighbors to be on the lookout for peeping Toms. This means looking out for your neighbor's house when they are not home. If you see something suspicious, then you should call the police.

It is always important to protect your family and home. The world is very cold and you do not know the intentions of others. However, it helps to not make your home a target for criminal activity. It starts by not making your home so easy to access.

Stepping into Greenhouse Gardening

My name is Michelle Landon. When I was a little girl, I loved helping my mother and grandmother in the garden. My passion for gardening grew, and in my adult years, it became my number one hobby. I have lived in apartments and mastered the art of having container gardens. I now have over an acre of land and can grow just about anything. My dream was to one day have a greenhouse and be able to grow all the flowers my heart desired. Six years ago I got my first small greenhouse and was able to start bringing my gardening dream to fruition. Today I have two greenhouses and working in them is even better than I imagined. I would like to share my greenhouse gardening experiences with you.
