How to Prepare Your Louisville Home for the Fall

Prepare your Louisville Home for the Fall 

Fall is here! While the weather hasn’t completely cooled down it is still important to prepare for the cooler weather sooner than later. We have compiled a list to get your Louisville home ready for the fall! 

  • Clean or possibly replace your gutters and downspouts
  • Cover or bring outdoor furniture inside
  • Check your heating system and emergency generator 
  • Change your filters

Neighborhood Spotlight: Germantown/Schnitzelburg!

For this week's "Neighborhood Spotlight" we decided to take a stroll through the Germantown/Schnitzelburg neighborhood. All photos were captured with a 50 mm Canon FD lens adapted to a digital DSLR. 

As many can gather from its name, the area of Germantown (stretching from the original Highlands neighborhood to the St. Joseph's and Bradley areas) was mostly populated by German immigrants in the second half of the 19th century. The re-routing of Beargrass Creek into a conrete canal sobered up the land from over-flooding and the subsequent malaria outbreaks. French settlers found their way to this area in the early 1900s, bringing about the name German-Paristown. 

1053 Goss Ave.  - Four Pegs

Support your local restuarants! 

Behind The Pearl, there are some incredible tulips in bloom right now! 

This feels like  Norman Rockwell painting...

Oop. Noticed me. 

This massive Japanese Maple on Texas Ave. is really captivating. On average, Japanese Maples grow about 1 foot a year for its first 50 years.

Always nice to see neighbors spreading the positivity! #TogetherKentucky 

Did you know that the red berries of dogwoods are eaten by over 36 species of birds and other animals?
