Dare We Hope?

Bistro.jpgToday, here in Utah, it’s warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived?

I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isn’t snow and water friendly.  Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. 

My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs.

Since it’s a Bistro-style table I’ll also need something bigger for the Summer barbeques, so I’m thinking about a Lifetime Picnic Table. The table I have in mind looks similar to a traditional wooden picnic table, with wide flat legs and attached benches, but is made from HDPE, also a type of plastic, and powder-coated steel, which make it weather resistant. This table has an umbrella hole built in too.

w-frame.jpgBoth these tables fold up for storage, but I will probably just leave them out, since we often get sunny days here in Utah in the winter, and we have been known to be outside eating breakfast bundled up in our winter coats. Also, because of how they are made, the Utah winter won’t do to them what it did to my current table.

Good luck with your Spring gardening preparations. If in your preparations you find you need some new tables, check these two out at Costco or online at buylifetime.com.

Memory of a Lifetime
The first time that I played basketball, or at least tried to, it was on a piece of plywood bolted above a neighbor's garage back in the mid 80's. I say "tried", because the ball never came remotely close to the rim - although it did hit the family station wagon multiple times. That's what makes my first encounter with Lifetime so memorable. It was in my best friend's driveway in the spring of 1990 - I was 12. I helped him unpack the shiny white poles for his new basketball hoop, while he picked an ideal spot for it in the corner of his driveway. With shovel and tools in hand, we began to install what would turn out to be the hub of recreation for us and several friends over the next half decade. While I didn't know then who Lifetime was as a company, I quickly became familiar with the advantage of their product. After the ...
Don't Let Summer Fun Turn Into Backyard Blues
Summer has finally arrived and along with it comes backyard barbecues, pool parties, and gardening projects. Good times! Before you know it, there will be toys and tools scattered all over your yard and patio. Lifetime has a storage solution for just such a scenario: The Lifetime StorageBox, also refered to as a horizontal shed. This horizontal shed isn't designed to accommodate your lawnmower, but it is plenty big enough for lots of other backyard "accessories". In fact, it received the Consumer's Digest Award for having the most storage space of any horizontal shed on the market. With a 130 gallon capacity, it provides about 16 cubic feet of storage for all of that summertime paraphernalia. Unlike a standard outdoor shed, theLifetime StorageBox is just the right size for the patio or pool deck; a convenient location for s...
A Pest-proof (and Bear-proof) Composter
Using a composter is a great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle yard and kitchen waste. Unfortunately, humans aren't the only ones who have figured out the benefits of compostingpests and rodents have, too! I frequently hear on Twitter and online forums from people who have squirrels, rats, and other pesky critters taking advantage of the free dining facility in their backyard composter. Eeeew! As unpleasant as that may be, I do have good news... we've designed the Lifetime Compost Tumbler to be pest-proof! How? First, we made it a little trickier for pests to climb onto a Lifetime Composter bin by raising it off the ground on a weather-resistant steel frame. But, even if critters do manage to make it onto the bin of a Lifetime Composter, the double-walled, high-density polyethylene shell prevents rodents from eating a hole i...
