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 grandma’s 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 didn’t 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 w...

Last night was a fun night in our neighborhood.  We celebrated National Night Out.  Apparently, most of the country celebrates this event in August.  But, because of the summer heat, Texas officially moved its National Night Out to October 7.  Plus, we all know, Texas just has to be different!  :) The night is a national crime/drug prevention event designed to heighten community awareness and strengthen community spirit.  San Antonio and outlying towns hosted various festivals and events last night.  And, some individual subdivisions also hosted activities. Our subdivision celebrated by hosting a block party fully sponsored by our Homeowners Association.  It was great… we just RSVPd and showed up for a yummy dinner and chance to mingle with our neighbors!  A free night out...

We had a great time at the Lifetime Products company golf tournament this past Saturday. Instead of working in the yard like I usually do, it was nice to take the day off and dig in someone else’s yard – that’s a jab at my divot taking when I golf. During the tournament I had to take a break – much to the relief of my team mates – to do an interview on the Homefront with Don Zeman radio show. I don’t think my teammates missed me since I wasn’t contributing all that much.It was a lot of fun to participate in the show. Don, the host, recently purchased an 8x10 Lifetime shed to replace his existing shed. I guess I shouldn’t name the brand of shed he was replacing, but let’s just say it was maid out of rubber and he didn’t like it. He had a lot of complements about our s... More

It’s Earth Day!
Its Earth Day! The perfect time to plant a tree, start your garden, start composting to reuse material, or simply . . . take your recycling out! At Lifetime, were conscious of our community and our role and responsibilities to the environment around us. Did you know that our products are made with a plastic called High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)? This type of plastic is what makes our products so durable and long-lasting. In making our HDPE products, all plastic materials not used in the initial process are reused! Not only that, but HDPE is an easily recyclable material. The other great part about producing HDPE is that its created using natural petroleum instead of fossil fuels, therefore making the process from start to finish, safer for all!
