Add Some Magic With Garden Lighting

Add Some Magic With Garden Lighting Landscaping AustinAdd Some Magic With Garden Lighting : anyone who knows me well knows that there is no place I would rather be at the end of a long day than out in my garden enjoying a cup of tea. In the cool fall and spring months, I prefer a cup of hot peppermint tea in my garden, and in the heat of summer I apt for a cup of iced lemon tea. There is something magical about being in my backyard garden that I just cannot get enough of. I have read more books, journaled more pages, and shared more great conversations with my family in our garden than almost anywhere else. The atmosphere of my garden was recently made even more magical when we strung garden lighting throughout the entire thing.

I have no idea why I hadn’t thought of using great garden lighting before,

but I was definitely open to the idea when my artistically driven teenage daughter suggested it as we sat on our back porch one night with tea cups. She thought that garden lighting might do something special for the mood of the garden and that it might make us want to spend even more time there.

Before I knew it we had sat our tea cups down and were headed to a local gardening store to see what kinds of garden lighting we could find. We were amazed when we took time to look through the store at how many garden lighting options we had. We choose a few strings of tiny Chinese lanterns that we in bright teal and olive colors. We both loved them and knew that they would be the perfect garden lighting for our needs.

We rushed home and decided not to wait until morning to put the garden lighting up.

Instead, we went immediately to our backyard garden and began stringing the lights from tree to tree to tree. After checking to see that all of the bulbs worked, we decided not to let ourselves turn the garden lighting on until we had it all up and hanging in place. I’m so glad we waited because when we finally turned on our new garden lighting it was amazing. The small and colorful Chinese laterns did a lot for the look and feel of our garden. The garden lighting only made it more inviting than it was before.

We gathered the rest of our family and brought them outside to see our work. They enjoyed the garden lighting as much as we did and within minutes we were making popcorn and had plans to enjoy the backyard garden together that evening. I love the way my garden lighting looks, but even more than that I love the way our garden has become a gathering place for the people I love most.

Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaners

Industrial wet dry vacuum cleaner

Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaners : the wet/dry vacuum cleaner combination is no longer just for a workshop. Over the years, the driving technology has improved a great deal, deceasing the loud screeching noises that the vacuums were so very well known for.

When you go out to buy a wet/dry vacuum with both wet and dry features, you’ll need to know some of the details. The vacuums are available in a variety of different sizes and HP, ranging from 6 – 22 gallons and 1.5 – 10.5 HP. The capacity of the wet/dry vacuum should match your needs in the following ways:
1. Wall mount vacuum cleaners with 1.5 HP and a 1 gallon tank are available for quick and easy cleanup jobs, such as spills. You can also hang this type on the wall as well, which will keep it out of your way.
2. The six gallon vacuum cleaners are ideal for smaller jobs and are easy to maneuver and store than a larger model. Keep in mind however, that the smaller wet/dry cleaners are much louder and also
more prone to tipping over. The smaller the tank, the more often you will have to stop and empty it.
3. Higher capacity models are recommended  if you have a workshop or garage where larger spills occur. A large capacity tank will decrease the number of times that you have to empty the tank.

When you looking for the best wet/dry vacuum for you,

you should look for the following options and features:
– The pleated cartridge filter. It is reusable and rinseable, and provides more filtration area than the flat filter and it doesn’t need to
be removed when you switch from the dry to wet vacuum function.
– An automatic shut off device is available with most newer vacuum cleaners. This mechanism will shut off the motor automatically once the tank has become full of water, which will prevent it from overflowing.
– A wide set of wheels will help to prevent the vacuum from tipping over.
– There are some of the larger models that have the ability to convert to a leaf blower, which is great if you have a lot of trees in your yard.

– Some wet/dry models have a built in pump attachment as well.

This type of attachment will allow the water to be pumped through a garden hose that attaches to the vacuum.
– A handy drain valve or sprout will make emptying the vacuum cleaner a snap. If it doesn’t have this feature, you’ll have to remove the lid and tip the vacuum to the side to empty all of the water. Depending on how much water you have in the tank, you could easily and accidentally spill it on the floor. The smaller types of wet/dry vacuums normally don’t have a spout or drain
option.
– Wider hoses and floor nozzles are great to have as well. The wider the hose and nozzle are, the less likely the vacuum will be to clog up
on you.

If they aren’t provided with the vacuum you decided on,

you can also purchase the following attachments:
1. Crevice tool – this handy tool will easily get in tight corners and around floor edges.
2. Extension wand – this will make the hose longer for hard to reach areas.
3. Hose couplings – this will join the extension wand to the hose.
4. Combination nozzle – this helps to alleviate the need of switching nozzles before you switch functions.
5. Gulper nozzle – this tool is ideal for the wet vacuum function.
6. Round brush – this nifty little tool is ideal for scrubbing.
7. Cleaning kit – this kit will include everything you need to clean delicate upholstery and other areas as well.
