A Coleman Gas BBQ Grill is Perfect for Grilling Outside

bbq grillEven though it isn’t summer yet, we have been having a lot of great weather which has made me more interested in hanging out in my yard than I usually am. I have been enjoying being able to go outside where I can easily enjoy the warm sun. I don’t like to come inside at all since it feels like such a long time since sunny days have been something that is common.

To make sure that I am able to take the most advantage of the good weather, I have started to spend most of the days grilling outside at the end of the day. I really enjoyed being able to prepare a complete meal without having to come in from outdoors. My Coleman gas BBQ grill makes grilling easy so I never have to worry about any challenges from the grill itself.

Buying Lawn and Garden Products to Use Outside this Spring

lawn careAround here, it seems that spring has started early so I have been scrambling to get ready to actually get my lawn and my garden looking great. I have to get all of the different tools and other items that I need to spread fertilizer and feed my lawn. I am also trying to work on getting my garden beds cleaned out and ready for new plants.

I know that I am already behind, but I have to make sure that I am able to spend the money on all of the different items that I will need for my yard. I have spent a lot of time online looking for discount lawn and garden products that I can use in my yard. These items are the most affordable ones that I have been able to find to get my lawn and garden looking better.

Color if FALL!

It may be that time of year to move all the herb plants indoors but the colorful Ornamental Mums which bring life to the fall setting, combined with some glorious Purple Chili Pepper Plants, may still keep the outdoor spaces of your home amazingly beautiful for autumn. Whether a front or side porch, steps or deck area needs attention, the name of fall is color!
Mixed with strong pops of color in contemporary furnishings, the occasional grey skies of fall will hardly be noticed.  Check out one of a variety of chairs from Shine Company Westport Adirondack Chairs which comes in twelve different color options or consider a more affordable option with the
Westchester Wood Adirondack Deluxe Deck Set.

Winter perfume This attractive display provides colorful winter cheer and a delicious spicy scent, which comes from the Sarcococca confusa, a neat evergreen shrub with little white blooms. While not particularly showy, they scent the air for several weeks.  Flower and foliage color is provided by winter pansies (Viola), a variegated standard Euonymus, and ivy (Hedera) to soften the rim of the barrel.  You could also add primroses (Primula vulgaris), which flower into spring.

Move Herbs Indoors

Transplant herbs from planter boxes on the deck into smaller containers to bring inside before winter weather hits.

Plant Trees and Shrubs

In the South, continue to plant trees and shrubs. They will put down roots on winter days with temperatures above 40 degrees F

3 Must Have’s for Your Backyard When It Gets Cold Outside!

Real Flame Wood Burning Fire PitIt was Halloween night and the goblins kept invading our backyard hungry for another hotdog and some smores!  We had fixed up our patio last spring outfitting it with all the furnishings outdoor patio furniture; comfortable for enjoying coffee in the morning and star gazing in the evenings maybe with a glass of wine or two.  But when it gets cold outside and, a party is looming, there are three must haves to ensure everyone stays warm and cozy.

Our favorite purchase by far has been the Real Flame Wood Burning Fire Pit.  We debated between this and a propane model Propane Fire Pit and a freestanding Fire Place.  For our use the fire pit has been the best choice for fostering cookouts and parties.  It depends on whether you want to cook over your flame or not when considering this purchase.

Another must have for the patio or porch close to where you and your guests will be sitting to eat is an outdoor heater.  After much debate we recommend the sleek Propane Outdoor Patio Heater  which provides more heat than the overhead models we have had in the past such as the cheaper Commercial Patio Heater.

Finally, set the party mood with  LED Stripe 110V-120V Indoor Outdoor lights!
