2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map

It's about that time. Time to start planning your garden and planting in your Lifetime Raised Garden Beds. Here in Utah the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am still being careful, however, and not planting too early... a surprise snow storm in June is not that unheard of here. Have you heard about the new Plant Hardiness map from the FDA? The 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map has a few surprises for our nation’s gardeners. Due to the warming trend in our climate lately, northerners may be able to successfully grow plants they weren't able to g

New Lifetime Dual Compost Tumbler Now Available

With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your garden. Here in Utah, it has felt like Spring all winter long. We have had a very mild winter. I fear, however, there is more snow to come which means the tulips and daffodils are in for a rude awaking.  It’s a good time to start building up your compost reserves to feed those plants that will feed you this summer. Lifetime is still very much in the composter business and we have had tremendous success with our composters. I feel we have helped to make another step in "greening up" our planet with the vast amounts of Lifetime composters that are composting away in yards all over the world. I'm excited to share with you that because of the success of our composters, we have developed a new version based on feedback from our customers! As you may know, a key element to getti

Building Our Lifetime Shed - Step 1

Okey-dokey. So, our Lifetime shed arrived and we read through the assembling directions.  Now that we had the general idea of what we were about to undertake,  we were ready to start building our shed!   Well, sort of.  Before we could actually start assembling our Lifetime shed, we had to prepare the shed site. As you may recall, we plan to put our 8’x5’ Lifetime shed right up against our back fence.  But, our yard has a pretty significant slope and we can only dig about 6” before we hit solid rock…practically boulders in some spots!  And, lucky us, we also had a tree stump

Lifetime's EcoHousing Initiative - Mass-Produced Shelters for Disaster Relief

Two weeks ago,  Lifetime unveiled its latest product - the EcoHouse.  Just so you know, this isn't our normal type of product that is available for consumers to purchase in retail stores.   Nope, the Lifetime EcoHouse will be manufactured and distributed to provide housing for impoverished or disaster-stricken areas.  Pretty cool, huh? So, what makes this shelter so revolutionary?  Well, first off, it's a 377 sq ft building that ships on four pallets and can be assembled in only 72 man hours.  And, it can be built with su

Yum! BBQ Rat!

Like most people, I enjoy firing up the BBQ grill to cook dinner outside. I’m usually a big fan of steaks, marinated pork loins, and the occasional chicken breasts. Last week, however, I almost tried a new cut of meat… RAT!! Ugh. My husband opened the lid to light the grill and, much to his surprise, a rat was scurrying around under the rack! Unfortunately, this isn’t our first rat encounter. About a month ago, I was in our backyard and saw two rats run across our wooden fence. I FREAKED! We just had friends in a subdivision a few miles down the road who had one rat do $8,000 damage to their new house when a rat in their attic chewed through AC lines! And now, the nasty little vermin are daring to venture into my yard. Let me make it clear &nd

Lifetime's New Raised Garden Bed

Spring is on its way! Well, maybe, depending where you live, right? Nonetheless, we are excited to announce our new “Spring” product… the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed! This 4 x 4 foot garden kit makes it easy to have a successful garden in less space. We’ve been consulting with fellow Utahan, Mel Bartholomew, who invented the square foot garden.

With its simple, do-it-yourself assembly and low-maintenance features, gardening has never been so easy. Not requiring any tools, your garden can be assembled in less than an hour. Growing

Building Our Lifetime Shed – Step 2

Since it’s been over a week since I last blogged, you’re probably hoping that building our shed really didn’t really take this long!  Don’t worry, it didn’t.  I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write about it amidst all of our Thanksgiving festivities, preparations for family visiting, and Christmas decorating. As you’ll recall, after almost a full day’s work, we finally had our ground leveled and our wood platform built for our shed.  We strategically planned to build our 8’x5’ Lifetime shed on Veteran’s Day since Mike would have the day off, but the kids would both be in preschool.  We were under a ticking time clock– five hours of uninterrupted, kid-fre
