Wheelbarrows make any yard and garden project easier

wheelbarrow Anyone who’s done their share of yard work or gardening knows that short of a good, sharp shovel, nothing beats a good, strong wheel barrow.

According to Wikipedia, wheelbarrows are “a small hand-propelled vehicle, usually with just one wheel, designed to be pushed and guided by a single person using two handles to the rear … . It is designed to distribute the weight of its load between the wheel and the operator so enabling the convenient carriage of heavier and bulkier loads than would be possible were the weight carried entirely by the operator.”

The old design had one wheel up-front and an awkward “dump pivot” – both of which made the old models prone to tipping.

Lifetime Products thought you’d suffered with the old kind of wheelbarrows long enough and set about revolutionizing the way you do yard work.

Lifetime’s wheelbarrows feature a heavy-duty 6.5 cubic-foot tub made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, a load capacity of 550 pounds, and a rust-resistant powder-coated metal frame. Add to that a two-wheel frame that’s less likely to tip, and a “dump pivot” that is closer to where you want to dump your load, and it’s a good start. But Lifetime didn’t stop there, they widened the wheel-base and lowered the center of gravity, making pushing easier and all but eliminates tipping.

Yum! BBQ Rat!
Like most people, I enjoy firing up the BBQ grill to cook dinner outside. Im usually a big fan of steaks, marinated pork loins, and the occasional chicken breasts. Last week, however, I almost tried a new cut of meat RAT!! Ugh. My husband opened the lid to light the grill and, much to his surprise, a rat was scurrying around under the rack! Unfortunately, this isnt our first rat encounter. About a month ago, I was in our backyard and saw two rats run across our wooden fence. I FREAKED! We just had friends in a subdivision a few miles down the road who had one rat do $8,000 damage to their new house when a rat in their attic chewed through AC lines! And now, the nasty little vermin are daring to venture into my yard. Let me make it clear I dont do RODENTS!! I immediately called our exterminator who set some bait boxes by the...

Lifetime Garden Beds Are BPA Free
Some of you have asked if the plastic panels on the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed contain BPA (Bishphenol_A). Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our healthespecially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers. The good news is thatLifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost coverDO NOT contain BPA. They are a Green Product. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic...
