Interlocking Deck Tiles

Interlocking deck tiles can help you easily create a new look for your deck, patio or walkway. They install easily and perfectly connect with just a snap over your existing wood or concrete deck or patio. Interlocking Deck Tiles will make a huge difference in the appearance of your outdoor living area. You will be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to change your outdoor area into a place that looks pristine.

 

 

 

Interlocking deck tiles come in a variety of styles and finishes to complete your outdoor yard decor. They are made for outdoor covering for patios, decks, balconies, porches, walkways, surrounding pools and hot tubs. They are made to withstand the outdoor elements and are uv resistant to keep them looking new year after year. Interlocking Deck Tiles are designed to allow water and dirt to easily drain and provide airflow to keep them looking new.

Quickly build any unique outdoor living space by simply snapping the deck tiles together without using nails, glue, or a hammer. Snapping deck tiles (sometimes referred to as interlocking deck tile) is a do-it-yourself product designed for the average homeowner. It quickly makes a solid hardwood floor on the patio, balcony, next to a pool or spa, or kitchen and bathroom areas in a couple of hours. No hassles of building a deck the conventional way. Most importantly, it is economically reusable – just simply snap and unsnap the deck tiles on one floor and re-snap them on another floor! You can build your floor within a matter of hours – not days – and enjoy it immediately. No glue, no screws, or hammers are needed!

Hanging Bird Baths

Hanging bird baths provide clean, fresh water whether to drink or bath in and will make your birds happy and healthy and they will keep coming back for more. A hanging birdbath brings the birds up close so you and your family can watch, listen and be entertained. Especially when it’s that time of season when the birds start migrating back from the south. Now is the time to start preparing your yard for their arrival.

What is the best type of bird bath?

This depends on what you are looking for. I like hanging bird baths for a number of reasons. They keep the bird bath up off the ground providing more safety for the birds and hanging your bird bath up in the trees keeps the birds in their natural environment while still being a sight to see.

Your bird bath can range from an elaborate copper, solar heated birdbath to a simple bowl. While the ranges of birdbaths are vast. A few simple things to keep in mind when purchasing or making a birdbath.

Keep it shallow about 3 inches
The bottom should be rough so the birds will not lose their footing
Have a source of fresh water
Be in a safe area away from cats and other animals.

There are two different types of hanging bird baths.
You can purchase a hanging bird bath with the chains and hook attached or purchase a holder and bath separately, either way, they are easy to hang on the nearest branch in the tree. No tree’s no worries, simply use a shepherd’s hook to hang your bird bath.

Garden Gazing Balls

There is something magical about garden gazing balls in your garden or as a focal point anywhere in your yard. The way the light dances and darts off them mesmerizes the onlookersm, especially children. Gazing balls have been believed as a way to ward off evil spirits and become one with the universe for centuries.

Gazing Globes or Gazing Balls were mouth blown glass orbs and graced many in homes in the English countryside in the early 13th century. They have certainly come a long way since then. Now they are made in many different materials and finishes. However they are made, they still hold the same mesmerizing meaning and decorative characteristics.

Many believed, and still do, that Garden Gazing Balls hold many mystical powers and unite you and the universe as one. In some legends they were thought to ward off bad things like evil spirits, attackers, witches and event ghosts. Gazing Balls were placed by the front door and if a witch or ghost saw their reflection, they would be scared away by their own reflection. They were also called “Butler Balls”, the home’s servants could see the reflection of important guests arriving to see if they needed help.

Garden Gazing Balls now come in all different forms and looks, and colors. They can be mounted on various stands or platforms to fit in with outdoor decor. They can also be simply placed on a table or even on the ground. No matter what kind of gazing globe you choose for your garden or outdoor decor, it will certainly become a magical and colorful addition.

Installing Walkway Stepping Stones

Walkway Stepping Stones are a creative and decorative way to add a walkway either in the front or back of your home. The designs are unique and functional creating a magical path way for your family and friends leading to your home.

 River Rock Stepping Stones, set of 3

I particularly like the smooth natural multi colored river rock walkway stepping stones. They give a back to nature look that is sure to enhance any area that you put them in. These zen type stepping stones are kept together by a pvc backing so they will keep their shape even when frequently used. No river rocks spreading all over your garden. The backing allows spaces so that soil will fill in between the rocks creating an even more natural look. They can be laid over grass, sand, mud, even wet areas and still maintain their durability and beauty. Comes in a set of 3 and are available in a variety of different shapes.

Many glow in the dark so at night your stepping stones will illuminate your pathway and give off soft light so making their way to your door is safe and easy.

Walkway Stepping Stones are easy to install.  It is an easy process that requires just a few steps to creating a new stepping stone walkway in your outdoor yard.

  1. Decide where you want your walkway and whether it will be curved or straight. Start by marking your walkway by using rope or 2 garden hoses.
  2. Lay the walkway stepping stones within your markings and adjust as needed. A step is about 18 inches so pace the stones so that each stepping stone is about 18 inches from the center from each stone.
  3. Dig around the stones straight down the a straight edge shovel.
  4. Remove the stepping stone and dig out a the soil and fill each hole with about an inch of stand. Taking into consideration the thickness of each stepping stone, the stepping stone should sit about an inch above the ground after you have added the sand.
  5. Pour about an inch of sand into the hole and level the bottom of the hole, so that the stone will lay flat.
  6. Place the stone into the hole.
  7. Make sure that your stepping stone is somewhat level. Push on the stepping stone to make sure it does not move. You can add or remove sand to accomplish this.
  8. Once the walkway stepping stones are level, fill in the area around the stepping stone with soil and tamp it firmly.
  9. Make sure that the walkway stepping stones are about the same height by laying a board across a few stones and using the level.
  10. Once all stepping stones are completed sweep each stepping stone so that each is clean.

Decorative Downspout Covers

Downspout covers are a necessity for every home and although your home undoubtedly comes with them, you know those plain white ones. Why not make them an accent in decorating your yard.

Not only do these downspout covers change the landscape of your yard, they perform an important function of home maintenance by keeping water funneled away from the foundation of your home. Any standing water at the foundation of any home can cause costly damage to your home.
