Home Living : August 30th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 30, 2011 9 Spring into gardening It's a good time to start thinking about letting light into the camellias. Spring is just around the corner so start thinking about doing basic preparation for the wonderful season in the garden. Vegies to sow - lettuce Lettuce doesn't like the heat so it's best to start them early before temperatures go too high. Flowers to sow - Cosmos Bright Eyes Yates Cosmos Bright Eyes is always a focus seed packet in September. This cheery little summer annual grows enthusiastically through warm weather, producing masses of orange or yellow flowers. And most importantly, 40c from the sale of each packet goes to Retina Australia, a little known charity that supports families affected by genetically related eye diseases. So far this packet has raised well over $100,000. Feed in September September could be renamed fertiliser month. Just about everything appreciates a feed at this time of year. Feed spring-flowering plants as soon as they have finished blooming. Pruning Prune summer-flowering shrubs and trim back evergreen hedges. As camellias, (pictured), finish blooming, do any cutting back you may need to do to allow light into its dense bushes. Job file Sow seed or plant runners into bare patches in the lawn. Feed established lawns with top quality fertiliser. Details: www.yates.com.au HOMELIVING Mosaics can add a splash Setting a trend. THE Italians are known for their innate sense of style, and have been setting the trends in home- design for centuries. The latest big trend to come out of Italy is small and vibrant -- iridescent mosaics. While traditional mosaics are 25cm x 25cm, the sizes now go up to 100cm x 100cm and in all colours, textures and shapes. Amber's indoor tile specialist Kate Lane came across these amazing products on a trip to Italy . ''There are some wonderful new mosaics so if you are upgrading your bathroom or want to add a splash of colour in the kitchen it is worth having another look at what's available,'' she said. ''You can add mosaics as a feature to either a wall, a splashback, bath or basin surround or even the floor for a simple and affordable but effective upgrade. Outdoor, mosaics are perfect for drama in a pool, spa or pond.''

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.
