This past Sunday afternoon I was able to skip out of church a little early to do a radio interview with our friends at 96.5 FM in Florida. Ken and Jared, father and son, do a weekly home improvement show called "In the House" where they invite “experts” in various categories to come talk about products to improve your home. As part of this interview, they are giving away a Lifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed model 60042. This was the third show of this type that I have done since I’ve been here at Lifetime. I keep a tally of the number of times I say “um” or “like” or some other filler word. This time I only counted six which was a big improvement. I have to admit it is fun talking about something I am so passionate about. I am very content working out in the garden, and with the great weath... More

It's about that time. Time to start planning your garden and planting in your Lifetime Raised Garden Beds. Here in Utah the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am still being careful, however, and not planting too early... a surprise snow storm in June is not that unheard of here. Have you heard about the new Plant Hardiness map from the FDA? The 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map has a few surprises for our nation’s gardeners. Due to the warming trend in our climate lately, northerners may be able to successfully grow plants they weren't able to grow before. So exactly what is the Plant Hardiness Zone Map?  If you’ve ever bought a packet of seeds, you’ve seen it. It's the little multi-colored map on the back of your vegetable or flower packet. Different colored zones on that map inform you of what num... More

Here's the deal.  We're always telling you how tough our products are.  Sometimes we use fancy industry lingo like "double-wall high density polyethylene panels"  or  "exceeds BIFMA standards".  I'll be the first to admit, that can get more than a little boring -- even for me.  It's much more interesting and believable to hear real customer experiences.   Know what?  We get tired of doing all the talking so we love hearing your stories about our products.  In fact, even we've been amazed with some of the recent "tough" stories our customers have shared with us.Just this week, Michelle and Wayne T. of Granby, MA shared some fantastic photos of their Lifetime 65-Gallon Composter that survived a bear attack!  Yes, I said BEAR.  Yikes!  "My wife and I recently pur...

Our Lifetime Playset
What is better than a trip to the neighborhood park, where you listen to the children shrill with delight while they swing, hang from monkey bars, and slide down the slides? Having your very own outdoor play system with all this and more in your own backyard.Last fall, we invested in a BigStuff Adventure Hard Roof Play System, made by Lifetime, for my in-laws backyard. Our children get to spend a few afternoons each week at their grandmas house, fortunately for them, their grandma and grandpa have a large yard and there was a perfect spot in one corner of the property for a play set. The system is free standing so I didnt have to worry about anchoring the system to the ground. However, for safety reasons, I did excavate out about 6 inches of topsoil out of the play area and filled it in with bark so the children would have a ...

What Makes A Folding Table Weather-Resistant?
A few weeks ago I wrote a post with some basic questions to ask yourself before buying a folding table. One of the questions was "Are planning on using your table inside, outside or both?" Obviously, choosing a weather-resistant table is important to consider if you'll be using your table outside. So, today I want to tell you a little bit more about what to look for if weather-resistance is a necessary feature for you. Let'sface it though, folding tables are most often used for occasions when extra seating or a temporary work surface is necessary which usually means using one is not really "planned". So, it's important to look at a table's protection against weathering and water damage no matter what your original intended purchase reason. Look for protection on any wood surfaces. Water (or humidity) can often get between ad...
