Home Living : April 26th 2011
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 26, 2011 Prepare for the season » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING It's important to prepare your home and outdoors with the change of each season. With the cold season upon us, start thinking about your lawn and surroundings. Winterise lawn -- your sprinkler pipes could break and your grass could die. Its important to check that everything is working and your lawn does get some water and food. Late autumn is the best time to fertilise your lawn because it i hungry. Fertilising in autumn will help the roots survive hibernation and wake up quickly in the spring. Tidy leaves -- cleaning up fallen autumn leaves can seem like a never- ending task at times so invest in a leaf blower-vacuum. Clearing leaves is more than just an aesthetic task; it keeps lawns and pathways clear of slippery leaves and twigs to ensure a safer environment. Leaves will also smother your grass and turn it into a dirt patch. A rake is a cheaper alternative and with a little more effort achieves the same result. Installing a gutter guard -- is a fantastic addition to your home in autumn to prevent falling leaves from getting stuck in your gutters and drains. Keeping your gutters clean of debris will increase their longevity and reduce cleaning time when the warmer seasons arrive. Weed and prune -- wet weather encourages weed growth so autumn is a good time to tackle any garden weeds before winter arrives. Pruning is also an important part of gardening which encourages healthy plant growth in spring. The perfect time to prune is when the trees and plants have stripped their leaves. Cut your grass short -- for most moist/ wet climates you may want to give your grass a buzz cut before the cold sets in. Drop the blade height one notch and mow your lawn even when the temperature drops outside. This will prevent a build-up of dead grass. More tips: bunnings.com.au.

The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
