When it comes to variety in weather, Rochester, New York, sees it all. From hot and humid ninety-degree days in the summer to windy subzero temps in the winter, Rochester homes need to be concerned with energy efficiency, no matter the season. Older homes tend to be drafty in the winter and leave much to be desired in keeping the house cool in the summer as well. When energy efficiency and economic savings are on your mind during the home buying process, building a new home might be a better option for you.
With over half of summer having already slipped by and as little as three weeks before the start of the next school year, it’s that time of year when “school” starts to find its way back into most families’ conversation again.
If the West side of the Rochester Area is the place you are looking to call home, and good schools are a big factor on your mind, Faber Builders is happy to point you to our communities near some of the best schools in the area. For instance, our Queens Park community is within the Rush-Henrietta School District, which has been ranked as the 11th Best School District in the Rochester Area, according to Niche.com. It excels in academics, dedicated teachers, and preparing students to succeed in college after graduation. Rush Henrietta ranks 13th in New York State as one of the best districts for student athletes as well.

Now that summer has burst upon the scene, you may be considering planting some flowers around your new home to make your yard bright and colorful. Whether you have a prolific green thumb or are just looking to add a couple small areas of perennials to your yard, a little bit of careful planning can make your flower beds bloom successfully and turn your yard into a beautiful, outdoor retreat in the summertime. While many gardeners make sure to pay attention to the sunlight and watering recommendations on the back of the plant tag to ensure growing success, one further guide should be checked if you have a dog at home.
Unless you will be planting flowers in a part of your yard that will be cordoned off from your dog, it is best to make plant choices that will be non-toxic for your pet. While there are lots of flowers you can safely plant around your yard and still keep your dog safe, here five of our favorites that will do well in Rochester’s climate.

The answer will affect how you make your decisions going forward, so it might be one of the very first questions you have to answer.
