Memorial Day “Salute our Troops” Event Recap!

The “Salute our Troops” Memorial Day Event held at the Backyards Inc, Riverdale location, was a great success and a whole lot of fun! Backyards Inc. donated 5% of their proceeds from that day to the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF). The grand total came to $1,640.60 for the UMFF, so thanks for all those who came out to support our local military! Backyards Inc. also kicked off a 10% military ID discount to continue at ALL six store locations!

 People of all ages came out to enjoy the event. There were free products, contests, prizes and even face painting and treasure digging for the kids! Frankie from 97.1 did a live remote broadcast in the afternoon, and we would like to thank 5 Buck Pizza for providing free pizza for the event.

Congratulations to Roger G. for winning the drawing for a Lifetime portable basketball hoop, and to Fred M. for winning the wheelbarrow weight guessing contest!!

Thanks to those of you who were able to make it out to the event! We hope it gave you the opportunity to get out and have some fun on Memorial Day and to show your support and appreciation for our local military!

Ecological gardening is on the rise. More gardeners are growing vegetables, fruits and herbs organically. People are trying to use less harmful pesticides on their lawns, and theres an increasing awareness of the role invasive plants, water conservation, and energy consumption play in the garden and our environment. Sustainable gardening practices are making it easier for home gardeners to grow edibles, trees, shrubs, flowers and lawns effectively while reducing the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. While there are many new products on the market to help gardeners grow plants more ecologically, many of the sustainable gardening practices are about following common sense.

How to Use The Lifetime Composter
First of all, you may be wondering what the benefits are tocomposting. Well consider the following: You'll reduce landfill waste by recyling your organic materials into a nutritious product for your garden. You'll save money that you may otherwise have to spend on expensive commercial fertilizers in order to maintain a healthy soil.

I think about tables and chairs a lot. Every day I talk with our Lifetime Tables and Chairs team about corner impact, leg locking mechanisms, channeling, leg deployment, and lots of other details that will make you stop reading this. All this knowledge has made me a firm believer that a very durable table with safety and convenience features will pay off in the long run. Do you remember the "old" folding tables? Let me jog your memory-- they were wooden, heavy, and clumsy. I remember carrying heavy tables made of wood or metal, with sharp metal edges below the table top that cutmy fingers. If you were alive in the 1990's and earlierand I a...
