Home and Garden Show

This past weekend Lifetime's official outlet store, Backyards Inc, was at the Spring Home and Garden Show in the South Towne Expo Center of Utah. Traditionally, this is one of it's biggest shows of the year, and this year was no exception. The Backyards booth was packed as usual. The final tally of guests at the show was estimated at 35,000-50,000 people! 
 
Backyards debuted several new Lifetime products at this show, that they have never got to show off here before. The Jumping Jack Tent Trailer, Double Shot, and the new 7x7 Shed were all very popular. Many customers commented on  the 7x7 shed, saying it was a lot of shed for the money. And their actions proved it--- It was the best selling shed at the show! 

As usual for Backyards Inc, they spent a majority of the time talking tp people about playsets. Since they have recently taken over retail sales for playset manufacturer Backyard Adventures, Backyards Inc. now sells wood playsets alongside Lifetime metal playsets. Since they put both on display, several people voiced concerns that the metal playsets would get too hot for their children to play on. Lifetime has heard this concern a few times, and those at the show were excited to explain that Lifetime playsets are made with 100% powdercoated metal, and the powdercoating makes them retain much less heat in the sun. Also, the slides and roof-tops are all plastic, which retains very little heat as well.

Other products on display (and for sale) at this show included:

Lifetime playsets
Lifetime sheds
Lifetime Tetherball
The Lifetime Airplane
Lifetime Double shot
Jumping Jack Tent Trailer by Lifetime
Lifetime Deck box
Lifetime Glider bench
And plenty of Lifetime Kids picnic tables!

If you're in Utah this time next year, hope to see you at the Spring Home Show!

Think Inside the Box
We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we cant officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor StorageBox. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the door of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box sh...
Winter Composting Tips
With winter in full-swing, that does not mean you need to quit composting. Composting in the winter and cold temperatures is still possible with these helpful tips: Keep your composter in the sun as much as possible. This is probably the same place you have had it all summer, but with the angle of the sun changing as it does during the winter, you may need to take another look and adjust the placement of your Lifetime Composter. For winter composting, keeping your compost a little on the dry side may also help. This can be achieved by modifying your typical brown versus green ratios to a little more heavy on brown. Moisture in the compost mix is necessary but too much will freeze and slow down the helpful composting bacteria, or put these bacteria into hibernation. So, a touch dryer during the winter is better.
