Shade Cloth Makes The Perfect Patio Cover

Shade Cloth

Coolaroo and Commercial 95 Shade Cloth is a great solution for providing shade and comfort to your patio or pergola. Coolaroo’s knitted shade cloth fabric blocks 70% or 90% of the sun’s dangerous UV rays (depending on the fabric you choose) while “breathing” to allow air to circulate and keep the environment underneath cooler. It is color fast and also resistant to rot, mildew, or mold. Commercial 95 is a high density polyethylene knitted fabric specially designed to breathe. It will keep you cooler and more comfortable in hot weather. It blocks 85% of UV rays and offers the same resistance as Coolaroo. You can choose from a variety of colors and can order the cloth by the linear yard or in bulk by buying a full roll. Either cloth will provide a shady and UV protected cover for your patio or pergola.

If Only I Had More Light…

Indoor Outdoor Solar Light

Finding what you need in the storage shed, garden shed, garage, or other dark space can be a challenge when you don’t have the benefit of light by which to see clearly.  Many homeowners simply live with the situation because the hassle and expense that comes with installing electrical wiring for outdoor light fixtures is not pretty.

Surprisingly, solar lighting can offer an easy and inexpensive solution to the problem of dark storage spaces.  The Solar Multi Light is one example of a solar-powered light that can be used in indoor spaces.  As long as the included solar panel is mounted in a sunny area outside, the actual light can be used in any indoor space where extra light is needed.  

Solar lighting, in general, is attractive to many homeowners because no wiring needs to be installed, and electrical costs are zero.  Solar lights have evolved over time, too, to provide more light for longer periods of time, making them ideal for any number of outdoor applications.  Homeowners concerned with appearance can also appreciate the many attractive styles in which solar lighting is now available.


Hide Outdoor Eyesores with Natural Rock Enclosures

Faux Rocks and Rock Enclosures

You tend your garden religiously.  You prune your trees and shrubs to maintain beautiful shapes.  You keep your yard tidy, grass trimmed, tools put away when not needed.  So, what do people notice when they look at your property?  The unsightly electrical transformers and septic system pipes that jut unceremoniously from the ground.

No matter what you try, it’s a challenge to hide the unnatural, but necessary, pipes, pumps, and utility hubs that take residence in one or more areas of the yard.  Blocking the view of these eyesores with shrubs works to an extent, until someone needs to access what’s being blocked.  Shrubs and other greenery can make working in these areas difficult.

Rock enclosures offer a smart solution that meets everyone’s needs.  Natural looking rock enclosures completely cover what you don’t want to be seen, but they can be easily removed to allow easy access to the hidden pipes and pumps.  With many shapes and sizes available, you are sure to find a rock enclosure that adequately fits the eyesore you wish to make disappear.
