Home Living : October 5th 2010
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 5, 2010 Pot is just the shot » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING The warm weather is a great time to go outdoors and into your gardens. If you're thinking of starting a garden or making few additions, think recycling and biodegradable and do you bit to save the environment. Now planting and maintaining a healthy garden is simple with Eco- Times new range of biodegradable plant pots. This innovative bio- plastic pot can simply be broken up and placed in the ground before planting thus reducing the number of pots that need to be recycled. Eco-Times bio-plastic pots have been developed in conjunction with advanced scientific research to ensure there are no negative effects on compost or soil when the pots break down. Bunnings Greenlife Buyer David Hardie says they are perfect for all gardeners. The pots don't need to be planted in the soil immediately and are guaranteed to remain intact for two years when kept above ground. Because they are so easy to use, the pots are also a great way to get kids active in the garden, helping them learn about the benefits of sustainability. The pot plants will be available in all Bunnings stores in NSW from October 20. Details: bunnings.com.au Prepare for success Summer is hanging in the air and as the weather changes, we are all looking forward to having more fun in the sun. Now is perfect to ensure your home and outside areas are safe, comfortable and ready for entertainment. Insects and lawn Reduce insects and pests by mowing your lawn. If you have mosquitos, use a bug spray or citronella candles or tiki torches with citronella oil. Remove all rocks, branches, sticky weeds and dog waste to keep kids safe. Outdoor furniture Wipe down to remove bird droppings and dust. If treating wood with stain or oil, allow time to dry. Umbrellas and awnings Read the label before doing any washing or using chemical cleaners. Put back on the frame and put it out to dry. Grilling and cleaning Grilling is one of the rites of summer that everyone looks forward to. Firing up the BBQ and tossing on the steaks, franks or tasty favourites is exciting and convivial. But beforehand, ensure the barbie is thoroughly clean. Each type of grill has its own type of cleaning ritual but the common maintenance for each is pretty much the same. You can use soapy steel wool pads, a wire grill brush, dishwashing detergent, spray-on cleaners to loosen residues, and even baking soda. Removable racks can be taken out and washed with soap and water. Once your grill is clean, spray a light layer of cooking oil on the grate to prevent the grill from rusting. Gardening And to have a great first impression on your guests, make sure your gardens are in shape. Add few new summer blooms for colour and character.
