Your windows are excellent sources of daylighting and natural ventilation for your home. On hot days, they allow the cool breeze from outside to naturally ventilate your home interior and on sunny days, they can brighten up even the darkest rooms of the house. Unfortunately, the outside elements can have some undesirable effects on your home's indoor climate when they're left unregulated. Excessive sunlight can lead to unwanted heat gains and exposure to harmful levels of UV radiation.
I knew that the moment we bought a house with a decent yard I'd be ready to start having kids. I loved playing outside as a kid and since we've been in this house I think the kids spend nearly as much time outside as they do outside. That lawn has seen my babies crawl, my toddlers start walkings, the kids kicking balls around and playing chasey all afternoon. Keeping the lawn soft and green is so important to me as it let's us spend all that time outside. I'm always looking for ways to make it feel and look soft and green.
