Home Living : March 2nd 2010
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 2, 2010 Plant seed of health » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Here's a great suggestion for people who don't get enough exercise -- and that's most of us. Incorporate gardening into your exercise regime for a fun, productive way to keep fit. Recent reports have highlighted the importance of keeping fit after it was revealed nine out of 10 Australians over the age of 50 don't exercise enough. People who don't exercise regularly have higher levels of cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer and high blood pressure. The good news is that just five hours of moderate aerobic exercise each week can cancel 30 years of age-related decline in cardiovascular fitness after just six weeks. And according to Sebastian Tesoriero, editor of new gardening website plantthis.com.au, you can improve your fitness without overburdening yourself by using gardening as one of your weekly exercise sessions. ''Our gardens provide an opportunity to escape the rush of a gym and have a workout in a calm and healthy environment," Tesoriero says. ''Once our working lives slow up, a low- maintenance garden loses some of its appeal. Pruning hedges, preparing vegie beds and replenishing mulch can be embraced as one of your week's workouts rather just than a burden.'' Although the usual slip-slop-slap warnings apply when working outside, stress instantly falls away amongst the sights, smells and sounds of the garden.

THE GUTTER LIKE NO OTHER The biggest problem with guttering is incorrect fall. That is why conventional gutters pool water and over flow in heavy rain. HI TEC has solved the FALL problem with our AMAZING ADJUSTABLE BRACKET. This bracket has two adjustments; one for the exterior of the gutter to match the roofline of the home. The other adjustment to control the waterflow inside the system to your downpipes. BUSHFIRE PROTECTION PLEASE NOTE... the back of our leafguard is ALWAYS higher than the front... which guarantees water cannot backflow into the home.. or rot fascia boards. The solid Colorbond Leafguard is great protection in the event of Bushfires. SAVE WATER Conventi onal gutt ers can lose up to 50% of water... due to overfl ow. HI TEC will transfer ALL the water to your water tank. We guarantee our system to work in the heaviest rainfall. BLOCKED GUTTERS AND DOWN PIPES Our revolutionary LEAFGUARD works very well because of the raised filters, which are very difficult to block.. and stronger winds simply blow most of the debris away.
