Beautiful & Inspiring Landscape Designs For Your Garden!

So you are ready for a change and want to refresh your garden but don鈥檛 know quite where to start? The outdoor area of our homes is where we are often most likely to be entertaining our guests, especially during the summer months! Adding more flora, trees, lighting and outdoor seating can really brighten up your home exterior and create an inviting place for you and your guests to enjoy.

However, the world of landscaping is not always easy to navigate, and with so many styles available these days, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. But with some inspiration and the help of an expert team of landscapers, you will soon be transforming your garden into a beautiful and functional outdoor space that you, your family and friends will love to spend time in! Here are some stunning projects that can spark your imagination and help you decide which landscaping design is the perfect one for you.

Modern, Minimalistic, and Functional

The first exceptional landscaping idea we will look at is this beautiful garden designed by Custom Creations, based in Sydney, one of the most reputable landscape design and construction teams in NSW. They have used the house's original architecture and incorporated that into this modern and inviting garden design.

As we can see here, the entryway is extremely eye-catching and has a very modern, minimal feel to it. It is lined by these exquisite Ornamental Pear Trees to add a very natural element and draw the eye down towards the house and the rest of the garden. The use of these modern paving stones brightens up the whole space and keeps a minimal aesthetic throughout. The symmetrical harmony of this design really helps it to stand out as chic and modern.

Inside this garden, they have used a range of diverse plants and shrubs arranged perfectly to create many eye-catching textural forms. These well-chosen plants add colour whilst still maintaining that beautiful, minimalistic design. The clever design and use of pathways help divide each part of this fantastic outdoor space into its own distinct zone. Again, the attractive white stone paving helps tie this build together and keep a uniform and minimal design throughout.

This wonderful build also includes an extremely functional yet attractive entertainment area! Relax in the minimal yet comfortable lounge area, complete with a table, sofa and chairs. Or start up a barbecue in the convenient outdoor kitchen space! Again, the well-thought-out colour palette works very well here, making it a truly stylish and minimal area. The industrial floating concrete bench and steel pergola combine beautifully with the wood panelling and garden foliage. The carefully chosen and high-quality materials used work to create a trendy, modern and yet still extremely natural atmosphere.

This high-quality construction and stunning designs were implemented by one of Sydney's best landscape design and construction teams.

Luxurious, Spacious, and Defined


The next design is from Hurst House, a landscaping team based in the US.

This is a fantastic landscaping design for entertaining, socialising, or simply relaxing outdoors as a family. Its defined spaces work as a series of outdoor rooms, including a dining area, lounge, kitchen area, and even an outdoor spa underneath the beautiful white pergola. This provides lots of individual areas, where you can relax together or separately.

The exquisite Bluestone paving and well-chosen materials make this design extremely luxurious. Trees are strategically placed in the centre of the garden, and the expertly placed greenery ties all the different areas together.

With the clever backyard illumination, firepit, and mood light coming down from the trees, this fantastic garden space can be used even after dark! There are even uplights hidden away among the ornamental pieces and shrubbery. The path lights direct you through the various areas and all the way down to the spa.

Light, Rustic, and Natural

The final design we will highlight was created by Trunorth Landscaping, also located in the US. It is a wonderful lakeside patio, complete with an entertainment area, firepit, and beautifully landscaped pathways.
Picture from Trunorth Landscaping

This design truly makes the most of the available space to include an elegant seating area with a fully functioning kitchen. The Techo Bloc stone panels give this area a beautiful and rustic feel. Due to the lakeside location and lack of large trees surrounding the area, this garden feels very light and spacious, leaving you with a fantastic view of the lake.

This design also makes clever use of expertly placed lanterns, and a large firepit, to provide warmth and a bright atmosphere, even on an evening, so you can use this space all year round.

They have also incorporated this natural flagstone paving and rustic Techo Bloc stone panels to create a design that flows beautifully with its surroundings. The well-chosen colours of the flowers and other foliage add lots of texture and really tie this space together to give it a natural, inviting feel.

What Do We Learn?


Each of these projects we have looked at vary greatly in style, size and budget. For example, although beautiful, the design shown from Hurst House would require a large plot of land and a significant amount of money.

The first design shown by Custom Creations is an excellent example of practical yet stunning landscaping that makes the best use of available space and is achievable even on a smaller budget.

They took the already existing style of the clients home and used this to design a modern yet functional space that could really enhance their quality of living. And by using high-quality materials, this space still maintains that luxury feel.
We love how Custom Creations can create exceptional outdoor spaces that always fit with their client鈥檚 needs and budgets.

They certainly have an eye for detail to design stunning garden landscaping that is attractive, practical and affordable. This kind of precision and attention to detail is definitely the mark of true landscape design and construction experts!

How to Avoid Surprises on Your Home Building Process in Victoria
Are you planning to build your own house? It certainly is a super exciting project! Drawing layouts, imagining the spaces, designing rooms, selecting your favourite materials is a lot of fun and creates a lot of expectations among the family and friends. Of course, building your own house also has another side of the story: the financial one. It can be very frustrating to deal with the financial aspects of home building, or even more, seeking the right insurance and paying for it. Although, building houses is something that we do once or only a few times in our lives. There are several unknowns that you have to deal with that can bring a lot of anxiety. So how can you make this a happy and stress-free process? How can you avoid unpleasant surprises like going over budget? Keeping in mind the following tips will help you reach your goal successfully and enjoy your future home sweet home in no time. Understand the project implications Expectations have a great influence on us, and when your expectations of the project timeline differ from reality, you can suffer a lot of stress. As mentioned earlier, people are not professionals in building houses. You might do it once or twice in your whole life. Constructors are the ones who know the business. They have an accurate feel of the timings for a construction project, which allows them to be more relaxed on the construction projects. Therefore, you need to be well aware of the timings of the construction project. But, how can you do so without any knowledge on the matter? Ask a professional! There are many building cost estimators in Victoria that can help you in this regard. They can first give you an accurate and detailed estimate of all the costs, and then, if they give construction project scheduling services, give you a project timeline that you can rely on. Use the timeline to sync your expectations with the real expectations provided by the experts. The truth is that if you don't, you will suffer stress when problems arise. For example, sometimes, during a home construction project, some issues are unexpected and unavoidable, and maybe you cannot really do anything about the issue. Still, you can adapt your expectations to deal better with the situation, as stated by the Better Health Channel from Victoria's government. Look for the right contractors When preparing the home building project, a common mistake that people make is to save money on contractors. It is very tempting because they will handle the biggest amount of money of the project and the differences between choosing one or the other can be quite a lot. But saving on the workforce can bring a complete disaster to your project. If something is not done at the quality you expected, you will see it all your life! So what can you do to select the right contractor? Follow these five suggestions. 1) Decide what you want before speaking to contractors. For example, there is a big difference in saying, "I want a pretty kitchen with tall cabinets" compared to "I want six cabinets that are 60cm wide, 85 tall, and 40 deep with doors that face each other". Even though it is not the perfect explanation, the contractor understands with the second statement that you know what you want, and he will help you get all the details out. Using the first statement gives him the message that you are unclear, and he will feel free to do what he thinks is best. 2) Ask for references. There is a lot of information and reviews on the internet about contractors, but there is nothing more valuable than word of mouth. Ask your friends, family, neighbours and see what experiences they had. It is the closest to reality, and it will give you proper expectations about the contractor. 3) Interview five different contractors or more. It might sound exaggerated, but the project deserves this amount of research. Ask lots of questions and request a written proposal with their estimates as detailed as possible. Make sure to compare their estimate with the professional residential construction estimating report you got from the estimators. This will clearly show if the contractors are honest with you regarding their prices. 4) Be reasonable with their availability. After you find the right contractor, they will be very likely to be busy with other projects since their good quality is on demand. Therefore, it will always be better to wait for a good contractor to dedicate fully to your home build rather than rushing onto a lower quality one just for the sake of time. Keep in mind that there has been a constant increase in the building approvals in Victoria alone, which will certainly affect even more the availability of good contractors. 5) Ask if there is any work that subcontractors will handle. It is an awful surprise to see that after you make your deal with the contractor, you never see him again in the construction because he hired subcontractors instead. Ask the contractor for a clear list of jobs that subcontractors will handle, get their names written down, and ask who will be responsible for checking the quality of their work. Doing this will avoid misunderstanding and give you peace of mind. Double-check your finances and stick to your budget Lack of planning your finances can be very costly at the end of your project. The first step is to get an accurate estimate from a reputable construction cost estimator in Victoria. An external estimator will always give you an honest estimate compared to a contractor. After analyzing the cost estimate report, define your maximum budget and remove changes that you cannot afford. Then, check, double-check, and triple-check if necessary. The time spent on this stage is saving you money, and sometimes, lots of money. Make design decisions based on YOUR taste Don't forget that what you are building is your house, so make sure that your design decisions reflect your personality and adapt to your needs, taste, and preferences. Some people make the mistake of adopting new trending styles, but they realize that they don't feel comfortable with it shortly after. To ensure that your style decisions match your preferences, ask yourself: -Do I like an open floor plan or separated rooms? -Do I prefer indoor or outdoor areas? -What room setup adapts better to my daily routine? While the design has to be aesthetically pleasing, creativity might affect practicality. Always think of your daily routine when making decisions to ensure that your design agrees with your daily practices. Doing so will make your house a pleasant place to be and to work with. Summary Building your own home is a dream opportunity. You want to ensure that the project is successful, and to do so, you will: 1) Get an accurate construction estimate. 2) Get familiar with the project timeline. 3) Get honest and high-quality contractors. 4) Make a realistic financial plan and budget to stick to. 5) Make design decisions that adapt to your needs. Following these tips will make your home build project a stress-free experience with no surprises but only joy.
Power Tools: To Repair or to Replace?
For construction or DIY lovers, a power tool can become almost like a son or a daughter. It sounds crazy, but a good, reliable power tool that helps you through every little project, no matter how challenging it can be, that tool becomes special. First, you start to like it, and later to call it your favourite tool. Then, you use it so much that the handle adapts perfectly to your hand. But with so much use, and no matter how good the power tool is, the day comes when it breaks. Will you go for a power tool repair? or for a power tool replacement? The decision will rest primarily on costs. The cost of repair vs the price of a brand new tool with the same characteristics, you certainly do not want to pay more for a repair than for buying it brand new. It is common to see that scenario with cheaper power tools, but when it comes to high-quality power tools, the durability of each part and the lower price for spares make it more convenient to repair. So do not make a quick decision on the matter. Instead, keep on reading to find out all you need to know to make the right decision. You might end up saving your favourite tool or falling in love with a new one. What kind of power tools can be repaired? You can repair every power tool! Interestingly, power tools die because of heavy use and only one of the components breaks, gets damaged, or runs out of grip. Usually, the components that break are: 1) Switch 2) Drive belt 3) Brushes 4) Power cords That is excellent news for you because you can easily find these parts from power tools online, and you can replace them yourself or send them to a factory authorised power tool repair shop for a replacement. The most popular brands have excellent availability of spare parts, usually for their more expensive models. Nevertheless, it is good for you to know which power tool manufacturers are the ones that provide more spare parts. The list of manufactures includes but is not limited to: 路 AEG 路 Arbortech 路 Black & Decker 路 Bosch 路 DeWalt 路 Dirt Devil 路 Dremel 路 Fein 路 Festool 路 Green Machine 路 Hitachi 路 Homelite 路 Husqvarna 路 Makita 路 Metabo 路 Milwaukee 路 Panasonic 路 Paslode 路 Protool 路 Ryobi 路 Skil 路 Vax Knowing that these brands provide easy access to their spare parts can help you decide which power tool you should buy so that you can rest assured that you can keep your power tool for a long time. That leads us to an important principle when buying a new power tool. More expensive is saving in the long run When shopping for a power tool, it is easy to find the right tool and look for the brand and model that sells it for cheaper. That kind of choice gives us an instant saving, but that could eventually backfire on you with time. More affordable power tools are more inexpensive for a reason, less power, weaker materials, lower reliability and longevity. But, on the other hand, more expensive power tools are made of better materials, better quality and replaceable parts. Therefore, when buying a new power tool, don't be cheap! Instead, think long-term and look for a high-quality power tool that, if it fails, you can quickly repair. Making the decision Your power tool is now broken, and it is time to decide whether to repair or replace it. What factors should you consider? 1) Cost of a new tool. Of course, the first item to consider is the cost of a new tool. Make sure that you are honest with yourself on this research. It is tempting to get a new tool, but ask yourself: Does the new tool have the same capabilities? If it is cheaper than your previous power tool, why is that so? Does the new power tool have spare parts available online? These questions will help you analyse the option objectively. 2) Cost of repair. In the same line as above, what would be the cost of repair? Is the cost a small percentage of the price of a new one? Depending on the quality of the power tool and how much you enjoy using it, how much are you willing to pay compared to the original price? You should never go beyond 80% of the cost of a new one that has the exact specifications. 3) How long it lasted before breaking. This point is often missed by many, but it is crucial to consider. Maybe your power tool is expensive, it is of high quality, it has spare parts available, but it broke after a year. That tells you that the power tool you have is not the right one for you. You probably need a power tool for bigger jobs or even higher quality to keep up with a large amount of use. So if it fails within a year, consider looking for a new one but on a higher tier of models. 4) Performance. Only you can have a saying on this point. Did the power tool perform as you like? How satisfied are you with it? The better it functions, and the more satisfied you are, the more reasons you have to repair that favourite power tool. 5) Original objective for the tool. Why did you get that power tool in the first place? Did it work for what you wanted? If not, it is time to change directions and replace the power tool for what you need. Again, make sure to get advice from experts on choosing the right tool. 6) Power tool repair shop. Do you have a trusted power tool repair shop in the area? The last thing you want to do is to send your power tool to an enthusiast repairer that will try to figure it out for you. A bad repair on your power tool will extend the pain of having a non-working power tool. Make sure to only go to factory authorised power tool repair shops. Some even offer power tool repair pick-ups from your house so that you don't have to travel. What is it going to be? After carefully analysing the situation, you can make the right decision on your favourite power tool. If it is to replace it, make sure to invest in a better quality power tool that you can quickly repair if it breaks in the future. Remember to do this only if the objective for your power tool remains the same. Also, consider the demand of your tool at your work to see if you need a model from a higher tier. If you decide to repair the tool, don't leave it in the wrong hands! Instead, take it to a factory authorised power tool repair shop that you can trust. Where can you go? No matter if you want to repair or replace it, there is one place that you should go. F&K Power tools is the best power tools shop online. Also, with a store in Sydney, F&K Power Tools offers factory authorised power tools repair with pick-up and delivery in all Sydney. Visit their website today or call them to get their expert advice!

Grow Your Own Avocado Tree From Seed
Planting your own avocado tree is a lot easier than you think. You don't need a lot of materials, space, or time. This project is great for people of all ages and can grow from your outdoor garden or inside your home. Here's how to get started: Directions: 1. Take a ripe avocado and cut it into 2 halves. Remove the seed from the center, rinse off with fresh water, and make sure there is no fruit on it. Let the seed dry completely. 2. Push 3-4 toothpicks inside the seed from all sides towards the middle. Place in a full glass of water so the pointy end of the seed faces upward, while the round part is in the water by an inch. 3. Keep the glass in a semi warm climate controlled place (away from direct sunlight). Leave for 4-6 weeks and check regularly to see if additional water needs to be added. Note: The seed will sprout a stem and roots. Once you see the stem is 6 inches long, cut it down to 3 inches. The stem will continue to grow and you will start to notice some leaves. 4. Take out the seed from the glass and move it to a large pot 3 ft. wide and 3 ft. deep. Add some rich fertile soil and compost to the pot and plant the seed. Note: The root of the seed should be pushed inside the soil about 1-3 inches, while the top half of the seed should remain outside the pot. 5. Place the pot where it can get good sunlight, water, and air. The soil should remain moist, but not completely saturated. Note: It's helpful to use a pot with good drainage. Pinch the top leaves of the plant every time the stem length increases by 6 inches to help the growth of the plant. *It's beneficial to start planting in the Spring. Also, if you don't want to plant your avocado tree in the garden, make sure to take your plant outside on a daily basis for sunlight and fresh air. It will take about 7=15 years for the tree to yield fruit, so be patient!
Thuja plicata - Western Red-cedar, Canoe cedar, Giant arbor-vitae, Giant cedar, Pacific red-cedar, Shinglewood
Conservation Status Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern Despite extensive logging, the extensive range and abundance of Thuja plicata makes it ineligible for any threatened category and it is therefore assessed as Least Concern. The two more or less disjunct areas in which this species occurs: Pacific coastal mountains and Rocky Mountains, experience a different climate and therefore sustain different forest types. The mostly much wetter (winter rainfall, up to 6,600 mm p.a.) and milder coastal ranges support the tallest conifer forests in the world, with Sequoia sempervirens in the southern part exceeding 110 m and with Abies grandis to 80 m, Abies procera 85 m, Picea sitchensis 87 m, Pinus lambertiana 75 m, Pseudotsuga menziesii 100 m, and Tsuga heterophylla to 80 m tall. Many of these trees also exceed any of their congeners elsewhere in overall size (Van Pelt 2001). Thuja plicata, with max. 75 m, is one of the longest-lived in these forests, with veteran trees often in excess of 1,000 years. Other conifers in these coastal forests are Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (extreme southern part of range), Xanthocyparis nootkatensis, Calocedrus decurrens, Abies amabilis, Pinus monticola, Tsuga mertensiana, and Taxus brevifolia in the understorey. Common angiosperm trees are Acer macrophyllum, Alnus rubra along rivers, and Populus trichocarpa; in the shrub layer are especially abundant Vaccinium spp., Rubus spectabilis and Ribes bracteosum. Deep layers of mosses and liverworts cover the forest floor and lower sections of tree trunks as well as fallen logs, on which latter most conifers find the only substrate to germinate. In the interior Abies grandis, Abies lasiocarpa, Larix occidentalis, Picea engelmannii, Picea glauca, Pinus contorta, Pinus ponderosa, Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca, and Taxus brevifolia are the most commonly associated conifers. Here annual precipitation does not exceed 1,200 mm and winters are much colder than along the coast. This species is common especially in the coastal sections of its extensive range and somewhat less so in the interior parts. (Selective) logging of mature trees and 'old growth' forest in which this species is a codominant continues in many areas where the forest is not on protected land. In situations where secondary forest growth is managed to favour other species (e.g. Pseudotsuga menziesii), this would lead to a decrease of occupancy of Thuja plicata. Plantation forestry focusing on this species should eventually reduce the level of exploitation of natural stands, in particular in 'old growth' forest with its high ecological value. At present this species is not considered to be in danger of extinction. The wood of this species provided the main building material for the Amerindian tribes along the Pacific coast, who developed a technique to split large planks from the lower boles of big trees without destroying the trees themselves. Nowadays, its main use is for making shingles used in roofing residential buildings; as in most Cupressaceae, the wood is decay-resistant and easy to work. For large construction purposes it is less suitable as it tends to split, but it can be used for a variety of smaller utilities from garden sheds, glass houses, and furniture to tools. Western Red-cedar has been used in forestry plantations in some countries in NW Europe on a rather limited scale; it requires high rainfall and performs best in the wetter parts of the British Isles. Thuja plicata has been widely planted as an ornamental tree in parks and large gardens. It is also suitable for hedges as it grows back quickly from clipping. Fewer cultivars are known from this species than from Thuja occidentalis, but it is nevertheless of substantial importance in the horticultural trade. This species is present in many protected areas, including some famous National Parks in both Canada and the USA. https://conifersgarden.com/encyclopedia/thuja/thuja-plicata
Elaine de Kooning: An accomplished landscape and portrait artist
Elaine de Kooning wouldn't spend her profession under the shadow of her better-known spouse, Willem de Kooning. A craftsman in her own right, she took an interest in Abstract Expressionism and large numbers of the developments that followed. Her commitments to workmanship history incorporate a charged picture of President John F. Kennedy, a re-arrangement of customary likeness, and an immediate test to creative sexual orientation jobs. A 1953 painting by de Kooning, titled Home, came to auction in Doyle鈥檚 Post-War & Contemporary Art sale. Explore Elaine de Kooning's life, career, and legacy and know the latest upcoming auctions in the auction calendar. Elaine de Kooning experienced early achievement in the New York craftsmanship world. She was a noticeable individual from the Artists' Club on New York's Eighth Street, an early center of Expressionist thoughts. In 1938, she was acquainted with her future spouse through conventional drawing exercises. She would later credit her abilities in likeness to his severe instructing. The couple before long became hopelessly enamored and started a decades-in length, turbulent marriage. As Willem's vocation fabricated, Elaine utilized her own impact to give him openings. Her pictures of key figures included Harold Rosenberg, a craftsmanship pundit; Thomas B. Hess, the supervisor of the ARTnews magazine; and Charles Egan, a display proprietor in Manhattan. She matched her pictures with sentimental undertakings, purportedly to assist Willem with getting. She started composing for ARTnews in the last part of the 1940s to support the couple's pay, giving publications and evaluates of contemporary workmanship. This openness encouraged her benefit both certainty and consideration, which gave her a lift when she began building up her composition vocation vigorously. Brandon Brame Fortune, the custodian of a 2015 review at the National Portrait Gallery, portrayed her strategy: "As far as she might be concerned, every individual has a represent鈥 the posture is the individual." During a brief partition from Willem, she started voyaging and showing workmanship expertly. This period was essential in the advancement of her style. While remaining in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she extended the size and shading range of her work. De Kooning likewise began to alter Abstract Expressionist brushstrokes to more readily catch the character and development of her subjects, which included matadors, sports stars, and companions. In 1962, a commission came to paint President John F. Kennedy. The decision offered basic help for the Abstract Expressionists. De Kooning was picked for the commission dependent on her standing for speed and her situation at the front line of the new development. She chipped away at the task with an extreme fixation for longer than a year, finishing many representations and varieties to catch the President's similarity. The finished canvas was the marginally overwhelming size and is today housed at the National Portrait Gallery. After Kennedy's death, de Kooning expounded on the interaction for ARTnews. "Beside[s] my own extreme, various impressions of him, I likewise needed to fight with his 'reality picture' made by the unending paper photos, TV appearances, exaggerations鈥 Covering my dividers with my own representations and these photos, I worked from one material to another鈥 continually making progress toward a composite picture." Contrasted with her significant other, de Kooning didn't appreciate close to as much monetary accomplishment during her lifetime. In the course of the most recent couple of many years, in any case, her work has been rediscovered. The 2015 presentation at the National Portrait Gallery helped separate her work from Willem's, showing pundits their comparative however particular imaginative plans. De Kooning's artworks likewise started to perform better at closeout, with costs ascending as she drew the consideration of gatherers. Large numbers of her turn outsold for under $1,000 around 2010, with some mallet costs as low as $450. In May of 2018, in any case, a still life painting by de Kooning sold for $12,000 at Rago. Sometime thereafter, an alternate turn-out sold for $38,000 at Heritage Auctions. Her representation of craftsmanship seller Leo Castelli had an acknowledged cost of $75,000 at Christie's in 2016, over 350% of the part's high gauge. Media source: Auctiondaily
Best Methods to Carpet Clean
When spring rolls around, everyone knows it is time to give your house a good cleaning. Carpet cleaning should be done on an annual basis and may require more frequent cleans if you have heavy traffic areas in the home or any pets that use those carpets as their own personal walking paths from room-to-room! The best way for most people who live with carpeting as part of decorating scheme throughout out the house is through machine vacuuming using either upright models OR low pile styles AND extraction mode which combines suction power from both types mentioned above along with crevice tool attachments To clean your carpets, it's important to know the different methods of carpet cleaning. There are two main types: dry and wet with various sub-groups within those categories such as "no-moisture" or VLM for very low moisture levels in a stringently controlled environment suita ble only if you have time on hand because this takes longer than other kinds do. So which is best? That really depends but here is quick overview about each type so that can make an informed decision before its next scheduled maintenance day!" All types of cleaning are necessary to keep your carpets clean. However, if you're looking for a quick and easy way that requires no water then dry carpeting is right up there with the best options out there. This type of surface treatment does not take long at all - usually less than an hour from start-to finish! Dry cleaning with an absorbent compound works by spreading a mixture of powder and solvents onto your carpet. They then manipulate it into fibers using machine brushes equipped for this purpose, which takes about ten to fifteen minutes before you can use the cleaned up room once again; plus there is no need for special technical training! The whole process only takes around twenty minutes so that means these dry cleaners are really fast at getting things done- much faster than if one were doing it themselves or paying someone else in order do clean their own home's carpets properly without having them wear out quickly over time due partly because they lack professional expertise but mostly just through being lazy Powdered carpet cleaners can be used to clean up any spills and leftover food, but the problem with this is that it doesn't get rid of all dirt from deep down in your carpets. Powder also leads to an accumulation over time which could lead you having dust build-up at home if not properly vacuumed away; wet cleaning uses hot water extraction (HWE) where they add shampoo for deeper cleaner than normal vacuuming would do on its own before spraying a solvent onto surface then sucking everything back into machine including soil particles along allergens such as pet dander protein molecules! Portable and truck-mounted units both have their benefits. Portable machines allow you to clean in smaller spaces where the reach of a hose is limited, but when used by itself it can't compete with powerful trucks that often provide better results anyway! A really good steam cleaner will suite all your needs: whether deep cleaning or surface sanitizing; removing stains from carpets as well as grime on surfaces such as tables or window sills so they look brand new again.

Why not try your hand at growing raspberries this year? If this sounds good to you, how do you get started? The first thing you need to grow any type of plant is a well-prepared bed for growing. Growing raspberries are no exception to this rule. Before planting, till up the bed making sure to pull out any perennial weeds that you find. As you till, work in some manure or compost to give your new raspberry bushes the nutrition they will need. If your soil is particularly acidic, consider adding some lime as well. The perfect pH for raspberries hovers in the 6.0 range. If you don鈥檛 know how to detect the pH of your soil, ask a gardening expert at your local nursery for instruction. Raspberries bushes do best when not waterlogged, so it is best if your bed drains well. If it does not, you can build a raised bed that will drain nicely no matter how wet the conditions in your area are. Now, you are ready to move on to the second step in growing raspberries. Now that you have a beautiful new growing bed prepared, you need to know when to plant your raspberry bushes for optimum success. Spring is the right time to plant your raspberries for two reasons. First, this is the best time of year to find healthy plants at your local nursery. Second, this gives your new plants the longest season in which to grow. You may find that you even get a few berries your very first summer when you plant early. If you aren鈥檛 able to get to planting until summer, don鈥檛 despair, you can still plant your berries then 鈥 though you probably won鈥檛 see a harvest until the following year.

This will continue to provide much-needed nutrition to your budding plants, and you will be much happier with your results. The last item you need to know when growing raspberries is how to prune your new crop. In the second year, before your raspberry bushes have blossomed in early spring is the time to do so. Prune your one-year-old plants to just below the fruiting area. This will allow them to produce fruit in July. You will find new shoots growing up between the established ones as the season progresses. It is best to thin these out, to give your older stock a better harvest.

Temporary Fencing
Temporary fencing is the most widely used method for protecting construction sites or handling large amounts of people at big events. We are used to seeing them in the line for entering an event such as a concert or sports competition, and we also see them around construction sites. What is the purpose of temporary fencing, and why are they consistently used? What are the rules for using temporary fencing? What are the differences between the available models? Purpose of temporary fencing The reasons for using temporary fencing depend on what you will use it for. Basically, temporary fencing is used in two areas: 1) Construction and 2) Events. Construction. Temporary fencing is vital on construction sites for health and safety reasons. If you start thinking of the number of risks a construction site has for people passing by and neighbours, you will quickly realise how vital the temporary fencing is. For instance, consider the risks associated with: - Demolition of existing structures - Excavations - Slips, trips and falls - Temporary electrical installations - Partially constructed structures - Stored construction materials - On-site plant and equipment An accident-related to any of these areas can easily make your company responsible if you did not have the proper temporary fencing in place. You want to have the proper protection for your construction site to prevent unauthorised people going in to steal or even kids going in for "fun". If you are responsible for a construction project, you are responsible for securing the area to protect neighbours and others from the community. To successfully prevent access from unauthorised people to your construction site, you need temporary fencing that is unbreakable. It is not easy to find secure temporary fencing, but there are products out there such as No Thru鈩 temporary fencing that guarantee an unbreakable temporary fencing system. This is key to comply with strict governmental regulations. For example, on Victoria's government site, the Construction site security fencing - WorkSafe lists the requirements for proper temporary fencing in construction sites. Under security fencing, you will see this on the second bullet point. Well-constructed 鈥 gates and joints in fence sections should be securely connected, without any weak points for entry Weak points are a common issue in temporary fencing. Usually, to break through the fencing, all it takes is to remove the top bracket, lift the fence panel from the foot, and open the temporary fencing system. Fortunately, No Thru鈩 temporary fencing has solved the issue by removing the top bracket and having it all locked up on the foot. Therefore, the No Thru鈩 products provide you with a regulation-compliant solution for your construction site. Events. Temporary fencing is also vital for concerts, political events, and even iconic sports events such as Formula 1 Grand Prix. The number of people who attend big events requires temporary fencing to control people's flow, prevent unauthorised access to certain areas, and protect spectators from any possible danger such as car crashes in a Formula 1 race. Did you know that there are more than 300,000 people in attendance for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne over a four-day period? The popular Formula 1 race involves racing cars competing on a closed public street circuit in Albert Park, reaching speeds of 320 km/h or more! Of course, a spectacle like this requires temporary fencing to protect the health and security of the participants and the spectators. It poses a logistic challenge to secure the area effectively, without allowing anyone to cross the barriers but also making it temporary and friendly for the environment. The Formula 1 Grand Prix event is just an example to prove the importance of high-quality temporary fencing. However, it is still a particular event with its own set of regulations, as you can see on their latest 2016 regulations from the Victoria government site. Other events such as concerts have different challenges, people are usually a lot more excited, and their behaviour can be sometimes unpredictable. Guaranteeing safety is the biggest concern for the company organizing the event but also preventing people from accessing the event without paying. Just as was mentioned for construction sites, standard temporary fencing is at risk of being breached easily by removing the top bracket. Therefore, the No Thru鈩 temporary fencing becomes the recommended method to prevent this from happening. How does it work? The No Thru鈩 temporary fencing system contains a locking element on the right-hand side of the foot and a brace on the left-hand side. The lock and the brace prevents the fence panel from being lifted. The brace also has another purpose: to stop the foot from rotating and creating a gate or opening to the fence. The No Thru鈩 system also provides you with options to define your access points. Since the fence panels are locked from lifting, there is no way to create other openings besides the ones that you want. Therefore, there is no need for monitoring all the perimeter of your temporary fencing. You can just rely on the boundaries you created to provide security to participants and spectators. What are the options available? Lee Brothers Fencing is an option for big events. They even supplied fencing for the 2016 Grand Prix of Formula 1. However, there is the danger of having weak points on their fences. They do not use No Thru鈩 temporary fencing system, and therefore the top bracket can easily be taken off and the fences breached. No Thru鈩 temporary fencing is obviously the best option for securing your construction site or event. With their unique lock and brace on the foot, no one will be able to breach your fences, and you will enjoy the peace of mind that everything will be secured, your tools on a construction site, or your dear clients of a big event.
