The weather is getting warmer in western North Carolina. Winter is a little slower to yield its grip on the mountains than it is in the foothills and piedmont but when it finally does, there is a marvelous display of color beginning at the valley floor and climbing to the highest ridges. Visitors from all over the country make their way to Asheville for the Spring. It is typically a time for festivals, music events, and all manner of celebration that warm weather is here. 

With spring comes the promise of sunny days and opportunities to explore the multitude of hiking and mountain biking trails, campgrounds, and waterways. Asheville residents and tourists will float down rivers and streams, raft down whitewater rapids, and walk thousands of miles of trails to incredible views, wildflowers, waterfalls, and swimming holes. 



What Type of Fence Will Contain My Dog?

If your pup has been chewing, barking excessively, whining, and generally acting up, try this simple trick: let him run! After an hour - or even a few minutes - of intensive play, he’ll be tuckered right out. And, as they say, a tired dog is a happy dog… and a happy dog is a well-behaved dog. A fenced-in yard provides a safe outlet for all of his energy, and it could not be more convenient for you. The key is choosing the right type of fence for your pooch.



Whether you are a long-time Asheville resident, or you recently relocated, your western North Carolina property is valuable. From homeowners to property managers, business owners to county and state parks, many utilize the security afforded by automatic gates.

Automated gates help you control who enters your property, allowing your friends, family, and coworkers into your facility while keeping out the curious and nefarious. In addition to providing security for you and the people on your property, they help protect people from wandering onto your property and using your equipment without proper supervision. 



Should I Paint or Stain my Wood Fence?

Stain it. (Of all the hard questions in life, isn’t it nice when there’s a simple answer?) 

Wood absorbs stain much deeper than it does paint. This means that paint, as it ages, starts to chip, peel, and appear worn, requiring immediate attention as it shows signs of wear and tear. By contrast, stain will simply fade over time, allowing you time and breathing space to restain when ready (mentally and financially).
