3 Products for Superior Lawn Performance #Gilmour #FlexogenHose #lawncare

The winter weather is finally moving on and we’re ready to focus on lawn and yard work. Since moving into our new home, we have a much larger lot to take care of with a substantial amount of plants, not to mention gutters, driveways, porches and the like. Because of all the ground we need to cover, it's important that we find a quality hose with a lot of length that isn't going to kink around every bend or need replacing after only one season.

A bit of online research, a hardware store stop, and a lot of review-reading later, we felt that the Gilmour brand was our best bet. I'd use your best judgment on which level of hose strength fits your needs, (they have quite a few), but if you are looking for power, control and durability, the Flexogen Super Duty Hose doesn't disappoint.

Transform Your Shower with the Razor Luxury 3-way Rainfall Combo #forthehome #luxuryshower #DIYBathroom

     One of the easiest ways to upgrade a bathroom is to install a luxury showerhead. It's as simple as a DIY project can get — taking only a few minutes to install — and creates a noticeable transformation to any bathroom. Personally, we love the upscale look of a waterfall shower head, but a handheld shower wand is also a must in our home. When we found that the Razor High-Fashion 8-inch Slimline Design 3-Way Rainfall Combo Shower Head from offers both of these features and more, we were really excited to try it.
