This giveaway had ended. Spring is finally starting to show up and give us hope for a warmer world! It's funny how by late Fall I am tired of yard work, but by Spring, I am itching to get out there and pull some weeds. Like for many of you, it seems to me that the yard projects never end. This season, we at Lifetime are excited to announce another innovative product to help you get those yard chores done. The Lifetime Garden Caddy. Here is how my typical time working in the yard is spent: I go to my Lifetime Shed and pull out my Lifetime Wheel Barrow. Then I climb, fall, and otherwise search for the tools I am going to need for my project throughout my shed. To carry them all to the worksite I put them in my wheel barrow usually losing the shovel or other tool along the way. Finally ready to work, I empty out the tools ... More

I’m excited to talk about our new shed that we have been busy working on over the past few months. We have designed a new size with some fresh new features. Through customer research, we learned that you, our awesome consumers, like the width of our 8-foot wide family of sheds, but some of you just don't have the space for a deep shed like our 8x10 or 8x12.5. This new shed is 8 feet wide and 6 feet deep! The shed also has a new look with vertical siding and windows in the doors. It has corner trim to make the colors pop and look good in your yard. We’ve also added a skylight that runs the full depth of the shed to allow natural light in so you can more easily see your stuff. Also, this new shed comes with shelving to help you organize your bug spray, weed killer, and whatever else you want to store. With our... More

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. Mass: Wi... More

Squirrels, and mice, and bears - oh my!  Several of you who entered our giveaway this month mentioned that you would like your next composter to be pest-proof.  Well, good news!  All Lifetime Composters are already pest-proof!  That's right.  We've made it difficult for little pests to climb onto Lifetime Compost Tumblers by raising them off the ground.  Our lids securely latch tight to keep the pests out and compost in.  And, the double-walled, high-density polyethylene shell prevents rodents - and even bears - from making holes in Lifetime Composters. Yes, I said BEARS!  Check out one of our previous blog posts that shows pictures from actual customers who have had their Lifetime Composters survive bear attacks! So, we can happily check "pest-proof" of our list for our next composter... More

This giveaway has ended. It's composting season. Yes, technically, every day is composting season. But fall, in particular, is a great time to really build up your compost. You can add the leaves you rake up in your yard, the dead plants from your garden and landscaping, the wood ashes from your fireplace, the rotten Halloween jack-o-lanterns, and your kitchen scraps - including most of those unwanted leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner! So, today we are starting a giveaway for a Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler to help get one random winner off to a great start with fall composting.  The Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler is one of our newest members of the Lifetime composter family.  It features two 50-gallon bins to efficiently and continuously batch compost. Simply fill one bin with co...

Over the years, we’ve told you about how our blow-molded products are made, and how our metals are powder-coated to protect them, but how does the whole process work, anyway?  I certainly didn't know before I started working for Lifetime.  But, here at the Freeport Center, all your products begin from scratch.  When I was first hired, I had the chance to tour the entire facility. And it was probably one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.  No kidding.  Did you know that in our blow-molding facility, our High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic starts out as beads that are pumped from the trains to the building silos?  The beads are melted and poured into the blow-molding forms. When the formed part comes out, Lifetime employees remove excess plastic and prepare them for a... More

I hope all of you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  From neighborhood barbeques to lazy days on the lake and everything in between, it seems most people find some way to celebrate the holiday by squeezing in one last hoorah of outdoor fun before summer and warm temperatures come to an end.  Me?  Well, we are still enjoying exploring all the wonders and activities of our new home state of Colorado.  So, we started our Labor Day by attending our little community parade which honored our local firefighters for all of their heroic efforts and endless hours of protecting the Colorado Springs area during this summer's historic and tragic Waldo Canyon fire.   THANK YOU, firefighters! Then, since it was such a gorgeous day, we took advantage of living in one of Mother Nature's most beautiful adventur... More

Once a year, Lifetime employees volunteer time to serve our communities around us. With the work we did at the Utah State University Botanical Center this year, it got some of our employees thinking. And not just thinking….oh no!  It was a surge of excitement! The excitement became contagious and a small group of employees pooled their teamwork to start their own vegetable garden in a small concrete garden box in front of their building. After buying the necessary plants and soil, everything was planted. And as of today, the tomatoes vines are climbing high, and even the crisp jalapeño peppers are already on the stems! I'm pretty sure my mouth was actually watering when I saw it. But even that’s not the end of it. Because of their group work to grow fresh vegetables right at work, that passion for... More

When we decided to give away a Lifetime 6' Picnic Table this month, we thought it was the perfect time of year since it's summertime and the popular July 4th picnic season is just a few weeks away.  But, guess what?  We learned from your entries that a lot of you would use a Lifetime Picnic Table year-round! Of course, those of you who live in warm climates will use the table outside all year.  But, a lot of you who live in colder climates said you would still use your picnic table by folding it and carrying it into the sunroom, the basement for a sewing table or laundry table, or even store it but unfold it for extra dining space during the holidays.  The convenient folding feature of the Lifetime Picnic Table definitely makes it a very versatile product. Congratulations to David C. of Riverton, UT. &nbs... More
