How to Choose the Right Trampoline For Your Children

Trampolines are considered one of the best ways to entertain your kids. There are lots of types of trampolines available on the market nowadays. They were invented somewhere around the 1930s’ by a young gymnast George Nissan and his coach. The first trampoline was used as a piece of equipment and was made of tire inner tubes and scrap steel. Before becoming a fun toy for children, trampolines were used for training astronauts and athletes.

Modern versions come in all shapes and sizes, with safety handles and nets for small kids. Trampolines can be used indoors and outdoors, depending on the type of the house the family lives in. Indoor trampolines are usually of a small size, they can be foldable and have support handles. Those which are meant to be used outdoors are much larger and have a safety net.

Today, it is impossible to imagine a typical backyard without this enjoyable toy for children. Any family can afford this item, as they are represented in various price categories. An enormous number of models is represented in the stores, and it is easy to choose the one which fits your taste, size of the yard and wallet. Of course, it is better to invest once into a good thing which will be used for many years, than to go for a cheaper variant of doubtful quality and made of unsafe materials.

Round or rectangular?

For many parents, an important thing is a shape of the trampoline. Rectangular and circular trampolines have their own pros and cons. The choice depends on your personal preferences and living conditions. The rectangular trampoline is mostly used by professional athletes during competitions. This shape allows the sportsmen to perform various tricks and twists and gives them more space during the contest. Because of their professional purposes, they are made of high-quality materials and are much stronger than round trampolines. That is why this kind of equipment is normally more expensive.

The downside of being made of strong materials is the fact that rectangular trampolines are heavy and, as a result, hard to move around. So, many families might see it as a trouble in case they want to replace it or put it into the storage for winter, for example. One of the good things is that this shape fits perfectly into the corner of the backyard and thus allows you to use space more rationally.

Round trampolines are meant to be used as a mass product by most of the families with kids. Much less steel is used to make a lighter frame for this type of equipment. For this reason, they are usually much cheaper than square or rectangular ones. It is possible to assemble and disassemble them without professional help.

They are often equipped with safety details such as handles, nets or other accessories. Another thing is that due to the shape, the person using a circular trampoline tends to stay in the middle of it, which is an obvious advantage for those who have small kids. While using this shape, weight is evenly distributed between all the springs, so they are stretched evenly. This means that they are not worn out very quickly.

Keep it safe

Do not forget that no matter how expensive and safe your trampoline is, it is always important to follow certain rules in order to avoid injuries.

  • Read the instructions carefully before installing the trampoline.
  • Use the net to put around the trampoline for more safety.
  • Make sure there is an adult watching the children while they are playing.
  • Put soft mats or sand under the trampoline and remove hard or sharp objects from below it.
  • Use comfortable clothes and don’t wear jewelry.

Do not forget to have fun and enjoy precious moments with your family! If you are still looking for the perfect trampoline, but not sure which one to choose, contact Douglas Forest & Garden. Our team will be happy to help you.

4 Must Have Pieces Of Garden Equipment

4 Must Have Pieces Of Garden Equipment

Upkeeping your garden is easier and faster when you have the right garden equipment. However, rather than buying every piece of garden machinery going, we suggest having some of the most important ones at your disposal in your garden shed. The right garden tools are essential for carrying out different jobs around the home like cutting the grass, trimming the hedges, trees and shrubs, getting rid of leaves and detritus etc. There are many tools available but here are 4 must-have pieces of garden equipment to have in your garden shed.

4 Must Have Pieces Of Garden Equipment1: Lawn Mower

Lawnmowers are one of the most useful pieces of garden equipment when it comes to taking care of your garden. They ensure your lawn is kept in top condition so you really should have one in your shed. They are very easy to use and maintain, there are many different makes, types and models of lawnmowers which offer great cutting performance and different features. When buying a lawnmower make sure you get one that suits your lawn size and preferable features.

2: Pruning Equipment

It is wise to invest in quality pruning equipment to keep your garden looking beautiful. There are various types and sizes of pruning tools depending on the type of job you are doing in your garden. Whether you are pruning or trimming small branches, large branches, bushes or shrubs, there is a tool perfect for every situation. Pruning regularly will keep the parts of your garden in the desired shape and size. Without pruning on a regular basis, hedges, trees and plants will grow rapidly and leave your garden looking like a mess.

3: Hand Trowel

A hand trowel is a small tool that is essential for doing different gardening tasks like digging, planting, smoothing or moving small amounts of materials. They are lightweight so they do not require a big physical effort to use and use for long periods of time. Hand trowels are perfect for many garden chores, operating in confined spaces and they are relatively low in cost. It is best to buy one with a sturdy connection between the blade and handle and one with a comfortable grip for your hands to avoid hand fatigue and give you optimal control.

4: Blower

When the autumn season comes in, leaves start to fall and gather around your garden. When it comes to getting rid of all these materials falling in your backyard, driveway, or lawn raking and picking them manually can be a frustrating task. As well as that, you will be wasting so much time and energy. Garden blowers make leaf and detritus clearing an easy and time-saving task so they are must-have pieces of garden equipment.

How To Install The Viking iMow

How To Install The Viking iMow

Gone are the days of walking endlessly up and down pushing a lawnmower. Thanks to the iMow, you can sit back and relax while it cuts the lawn for you. Buying the iMow is easy but what can be hard is installing it. The installation process is the most important aspect in relation to achieving the best cutting results possible. Don’t worry we are here to help you by taking you through the necessary steps to install the Viking iMow. Here is everything you need to install your docking station, perimeter wire and iMow to perfection.

How To Install The Viking iMow1: Prep The Lawn

Before you do anything, simply make sure your lawn is clean, tidy and free of any toys, objects and debris like twigs and leaves. Make sure your grass is cut to an acceptable length which tends to be a length no longer than 10mm. When these minor details have been checked off the checklist, you can proceed to the more important parts of the process.

2: Plan The Layout/Position Your Perimeter Wire

You will need to plan the layout for your perimeter wire, the best course to take through your lawn. Create islands around obstacles you want to stay clear of. You also need to plan and determine the best position for your iMows charging station. Ideally somewhere flat and in a middle ground which can be accessed from all angles. Stay away from sprinklers and near to a power outlet. Lay your perimeter wire at a reasonable distance from the edge of where you want to cut. The perimeter wire must be laid flat.

3: Program & Charge

Then place your iMow in the charging station to start charging our iMow so it builds up a charge. Set your settings on the machine to your preference like the cutting height and time settings, these can be changed whenever you want using the control panel. Do not cut any corners to save time as this will only result in your lawn suffering.

4: Detailed Check Of Installation & Make Any Adjustments Where Necessary

It is worthwhile checking your installation after you are confident it is completed. Take a step back, have a walk around your perimeter wire and make sure your settings are set to your liking and appropriate to how you want the lawn cut. Make any necessary adjustments before beginning to use the iMow mower.

5: Sit Back & Watch Your iMow Work

Once you have done all the above steps, you are good to go. It is now time to let your robotic mower go to work and do the hard work for you while you sit back and relax. If you are experiencing any problems with your iMow make sure to contact your Viking dealer for further assistance on the issue.

We all have days when we aren’t at our sharpest but these people are certainly taking it to a whole new level when gardening. We have rounded up five of the best gardening fails from around the world, expert gardeners please look away now. Here is our collection of excruciating gardening fails.

1: Mowing On A HoverBoard

We have all seen some lazy people in our time but this man might be up there with one of the laziest we have ever seen. He is using a hoverboard to do the work his legs and body should be doing to manoeuver the lawn mower around the garden to cut it. This is an incident waiting to happen.

2: Hedge Cutting Suspended From A Crane 

No, your eyes are not playing a trick on you, that man is really suspended from a crane on a tractor mower cutting the hedge. How he can think this is a good idea is beyond comprehension.

3: Spraying The Grass

This gentleman thinks nothing of cutting corners and paints over his sun-bleached lawn to make the grass greener. He is pulling out all the stops to fake it so people can see how green his lawn is from his expert level maintenance.

4: Formula One Garden Pitstop

This creative gardener has only gone and shaped his hedges into a formula one pitstop. The time and effort he must have spent to get his hedges looking like that must have been insane.

5: WheelBarrow Man

Note to self ‘don’t ever attempt this because it is never going to turn out well’.  We can see here that this individual is balancing and pushing a wheelbarrow full of grass clipping up a skinny wooden board to dump the contents into a container, however, it doesn’t exactly go to plan.

There’s no doubt, gardening can be a tough hobby, especially for inexperienced gardeners. There are some mistakes every gardener will probably make at one time or another however if you exercise some of these bad practices in your home garden then it is time to let someone else take over the reign of gardening at home.

Robotic Lawnmowers Vs Petrol Lawnmowers

Robotic Lawnmowers Vs Petrol Lawnmowers

Robotic lawn mowers are starting to become more popular, however,Robotic Lawnmowers Vs Petrol Lawnmowers there are still some people on the fence when it comes to whether or not they’re better than petrol lawn mowers. It is difficult to compare two different types of lawn mowers but in the following piece, we are going to explain the key differences between robotic and petrol lawnmowers when it comes to maintaining your lawn.

Time Consumption

Robotic lawn mowers can’t handle too much grass at once because the cutting deck is smaller, therefore, the amount of grass cut is smaller. Robotic mowers are only a few inches wide so they can only handle narrow portions of grass meaning it will pass over the lawn more times to cover the entire area as opposed to a push lawn mower. Petrol lawn mowers take significantly less time to cut the entire lawn because of its larger cutting deck and the fact that it is moving at a faster pace due to the operator pushing it. There is no worry of the battery running out midway like with robotic mowers which then takes time to charge back up again.

Costs

Costs are a significant way in which robotic lawn mowers differ in comparison to petrol lawn mowers. Petrol mowers are much cheaper to buy than robotic lawnmowers, however, robotic mowers are cheaper to run than petrol mowers. The price of petrol is not cheap which can be damaging to your funds. Petrol mower engines require a lot of maintenance like servicing & changing components like spark plugs, fuel filters, oil and lots of others. In comparison, robotic mowers are much simpler, you put the battery in the slot and press the start button. The minimal electrical use to charge the electric machine is small which won’t make any significant dents to the owners’ bills. Batteries do wear out after time which affects performance so you may need to get a new battery in a few years.

Cutting Quality

When deciding on a lawn mower, the blade of the lawn mower is an important factor as the wider the blade, the better the cutting capacity and cut quality. Petrol lawnmowers would be favoured over robotic lawnmowers in that regard. Robotic lawn mowers don’t cut your grass in any noticeable pattern but instead, they manoeuvre around in a seemingly aimless manner. This may seem weird but it is very good at cutting all of your lawn, however, if you like those nice lines in your lawn that are left behind with a petrol mower and they are important to you as a landscaping feature, you’ll probably want to stay away from robotic lawnmowers.

It is necessary to set your priorities when it comes to cutting your grass, take into consideration the above differences and determine what you want to achieve from your mower. If you do not enjoy mowing the lawn, then a robotic mower is perfect for you. However, if you are a lawn fanatic that obsesses over the appearance of their lawn then a petrol lawnmower is ideal for you.

 

3 Gardening Safety Tips

3 Gardening Safety Tips

3 Gardening Safety TipsGardening is a wonderful way of beautifying your home. Health and safety should always be your priority when you are outside working with tools, plants, chemicals, insects and lots more harmful things. Gardening may seem safe but it can lead to injury or illness if completed without the appropriate care. This weeks blog will give you some tips to keep in mind to maintain the optimum safety when gardening. Below are 3 gardening safety tips to help keep you safe and healthy whilst gardening.

1: Wear Gloves

By wearing proper gardening gloves you will protect your skin from coming into contact with any harmful irritants. The smallest of cuts can develop into a hand infection. They protect you from thorny objects, insect bites, blisters, fertilisers, pesticides, bacteria and any other skin irritants that live in the soil. Rubber gloves are essential when working with garden chemicals. Gloves also protect you from sharp garden tools harming you. With all gloves make sure to inspect them for tears or small holes before using them.

2: Use Tools Not Your Hands

Using garden tools instead of your hands will not only protect your hands but also make your job much easier. Garden tools drastically reduce your workload and put less strain on your body. There may be buried objects in the soil which can injure your hand or wrist while working. Use the appropriate tools instead of your hands like a large or small hand shovel. It is important to use tools for their intended purpose. Tools that feature handles which don’t fit your hand may cause blisters, calluses and muscle pain. When your hand is too big or small for the tool it may cause blisters, calluses and will put lots of stress on your hands which can lead to muscle pain and serious injury. Choose garden tools to suit you.

3: Keep A Good Posture

Posture refers to the different body positions you are in whilst gardening. Bad posture can lead to muscle pain and serious injury. There are lots of things you can do to ensure this doesn’t happen to you. For example, kneeling instead of bending will result in less back strain, wearing knee pads will give you added comfort and put less strain on your kneecaps, when lifting objects make sure you engage your legs and not your back and hold objects close to your body when moving them. It is important to take breaks regularly to walk around and stretch because when your body stays in the same position for too long it can lead to serious muscle pain and worse serious injury.
