Hohnen Hacks | Save Money and The Environment
4 tips I’ve gathered from my experiences with real estate, home-owning in Los Angeles, and home renovation. Here’s how you can save money and be sustainable with your home.
- Kurapia grass:
If you are looking to save money on water and help the environment, but still want he look of a “lawn,” try Kurapia. It’s drought tolerant, fireproof, and requires very little water (needs to be watered only once a week apparently), while also looking very pretty (little white flowers pop out when in season). Perfect for our Los Angeles climate!
- Source tiles locally:
For some masterfully crafted and local tiles, try Filmore Clark on La Cienega.
- Charge during off-peak hours:
To save money and help lower the electricity consumption in your area, charge your car during off-peak hours. For Los Angeles, electricity is overall cheaper during late at night or early in the morning.
- Protect natural surfaces:
TuffSkin: Strong yet thin film that seamlessly goes on surfaces like countertops and marble showers to prevent staining.
