Many homeowners are concerned about the environment and are looking for ways to maintain their yard without having to use harmful chemicals. One area that gets a lot of attention is the lawn. With an organic lawn care approach, gardeners are finding they can have a thick, lush, and green lawn that’s safe for wildlife, pets, and people too. The keys to success include: growing the right grass variety for your area, aerating, dethatching, feeding your lawn properly, and mowing your lawn at the right height. Here’s what to do to transition into growing a healthier lawn: Use the Right Grass—Grow grass varieties adapted to your climate. In the North, choose cool season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass. In the South, use warm season grasses such as, Bermuda grass, St. Augus... More
Because I always love hearing how much people love Lifetime Products, I just HAD to contact the great woman mentioned in my last post, and hear more about our tables! :) Heather (shown above working at an Earth Day event with her little boy-- a shy guy in this photo!) is with Slow Food Utah and is powering a "Good, Clean, Fair food movement", a global organization with grassroots efforts to link people with information about the food in their community and the environment. One of Slow Food's lesser known initiatives is the "Slow Food in Schools", a garden-to-table program that helps children develop an appreciation for real, wholesome food and an understanding of sustainable food practices. Heather told me more about her Lifetime 6 foot fold-in-half &nb... More

Earth Day is one of those things I learned about in elementary school. I remember running home to tell my mom that each drop of water we waste actually becomes a gallon of wasted water for the earth! Like my mom reacted at the time, I now don't think that's true. My first grade brain must have exaggerated the concept. For this year's Earth Day, I decided to volunteer at the local nature center's event, helping with a craft table for children making magazine bead necklaces. Lots of fun! Volunteers before me had made thousands of beads and even sorted them by color. Looking around, I spotted a couple Lifetime tables. I asked one of the vendors a little about her booth then let her know I work for the company who made her table. She immediatley beamed "I love this table!" and went on ... More
Lifetime makes several different styles of folding chairs. The two most popular are our original Contoured Folding Chair and our newer Contemporary Folding Chair. I happen to own both of them, so I thought I would take a few up-close photos to show you how they stack… uh, I mean fold…up to each other. First, if you've never sat in a Lifetime folding chair, you should. Lifetime has conducted numerous focus groups and consumer surveys where we line up various styles of folding chairs…ours, metal, padded, etc. While the Lifetime chair may not look comfortable, once people take a seat, they quickly change their mind. Why are Lifetime chairs so comfortable? Easy. First and foremost - size. Take a look at this first picture. See? A Lifetime folding cha... More

This past Saturday was yard day at our house. Nine solid hours of pruning trees, trimming bushes, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and spreading mulch. (Why didn't someone remind me that my hamstrings will be extremely sore from bending over all day. It's been two days and I still can't sit down without using my arms to lower myself!) It's the project we tackle every spring. I actually look forward to it. I love being outdoors and feeling productive. (Of course, that enthusiasm quickly fades after the first few hours which is why we plow through it all in one day.) Our backyard has several "forests" as my kids call them, which are really just large clusters of trees with mulch around them. Very pretty, but it requires a lot of mulch - over three yards (... More

Theyre stain resistant and easy to clean, powder coated and UV protected for outdoor use, and Lifetime table...
What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving? My wife’s favorite part is going shopping! I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?). My goal is to help you know where you can find our products. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.

Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and ...
