Outdoor Activities for Toddlers

Are you looking for some outdoor activities for toddlers? In recent years, society has become highly focused on safety, sometimes at the expense of allowing kids freedom to play and explore. Luckily, there are things that even toddlers can enjoy outdoors which, under supervision, allow them to explore and have fun without putting them at risk. Go-Karts have been around in different forms for decades, but the BERG models are simple and functional while using materials for the 21st century. 

BERG offers an entire range of superior quality toys for kids and adults alike. BERG’s Go-Karts for Toddlers are no exception. These Go Karts are solid yet lightweight. Let your toddlers play and have fun safely with BERG’s go-karts.outdoor activities for toddlers

Children aged 10-30 months love the BERG Go. The BERG Go has fold-up pedals so that your toddler can scoot without the pedals getting in the way.  This allows your child to learn to scoot around until he or she is ready for the next stage. 

Can You Use A BERG GO On A Lawn?

The Berg Go is made for paved yards and indoor use. Its thick, wide wheels allow it to roll in the garden on a well-cut lawn. Make sure there are no excessive slopes. The BERG GO does not have brakes, so adult supervision is required at all times. To ensure safety at all times, ensure that your child is clear from any areas used by vehicles (including your own driveway).

Is Trampolining Safe For Toddlers?

We’re often asked about outdoor activities for toddlers. Sometimes we’re asked if it’s safe for toddlers to use a small trampoline. The simple answer is no. We do not recommend trampolines for children under the age of three. For young children over the age of 3,  we can recommend our regular trampolines. These trampolines are off the ground, so we advise you to purchase one with safety netting. Especially if you plan to leave your children without constant hands-on guidance.

hot tub setup

Setting Up Your Hot Tub

Looking for tips for your hot tub setup? There are a couple of extra things to consider when setting up hot tubs in Ireland. Namely, insulation, which I’ll explain in a moment. After you’ve ordered your hot tub, you’ll receive a (large) package containing the tub and entire system. The first thing is to clear a bit of space for your hot tub. You will need an area with clear, flat ground. We would recommend you also purchase treatments, filters and a floating dispenser for your chlorine tablets to help keep the tub clean.

While the spa comes with a rubber mat for beneath the spa, you can also purchase some foam floor tiles (similar to what you’d use for flooring in an at-home gym or workshop) to place under the hot tub to provide additional protection to the base, as well as offer an extra layer of insulation beneath the hot tub to keep the water warm.

Our preferred brand is are Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs. These are inflatable and come vacuum wrapped in the box.  The water pump system is weighty, so take your time removing it from the box. The pump has a storage hatch to hide away the pipes for inflating your spa.

Hot Tub Setup

Place the insulating foam pads down on the space you have cleared for your hot tub. These pads are usually interlocking, but you can also tape them together to keep it solid. 

Next, place the included rubber mat down on top of your foam pads. hot tub setup

Inflate the Hot Tub

Plug in your pump and connect the pipes (inside the pump) to the hot tub to begin inflating it. This is quite easy, you just have to fix the pipe to the screw-in socket on the side of the spa. It only takes about 5 minutes to inflate.

Place the Cover

Next, you must inflate the ‘lid’, which goes over the hot tub when it’s not in use. This is also inflatable and only takes a moment to inflate. This helps keep the water warm and clean.

Connect the filter to the Spa

The spa’s pump needs to be on a level surface right beside the spa, as it connects directly into the spa with no flexible piping between them. Once they are aligned, insert the pipe and use the screw-on cap to seal the connection. The pump will now be ready to heat and filter the water.

Remove the Cover

On the inside of the spa, remove the covers on the heating inlet and filter. Keep them safe for when you want to disassemble.  Then screw on the filtration outlet.  

Fill Up Your Spa

It should take about 45 minutes to fill your spa up with water.  It will start to heat immediately, and this can take up to 24 hours so keep that in mind if you plan on getting on for the summer.

Overall, aside from the weight of the parts, hot tub setup is very straightforward and simple when you go with the Lay-Z-Spa brand.  But if you have any further questions or would like help assembling your hot tub in Cork, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 021-4965132

Are Robotic Lawn Mowers Any Good?

We’re often asked, “Are robotic lawn mowers any good?”.  Robotic lawn mowers have become more and more popular over the past 10 years and they’re becoming more advanced. The question of whether they are any good comes down to what results you’re after. If you want a “well-manicured”, clean, green look, then how a lawn mower’s blades cut of the grass matters. You will want a machine which doesn’t fray or tear the blades of grass (which can cause browning and drying), so in this case, we would still recommend one of our range of push lawn mowers in Cork.

Push and ride-on lawn mowers have more powerful engines and higher RPM. This cuts the grass cleanly, which tends to keep it green and soft. Manual mowers also allow you to give your lawn that clean ‘striped’ appearance. A robotic lawn mower like the iMow cuts in a random pattern. But if you want an almost entirely automated management of your lawn, which never overgrows, we recommend a robotic lawnmower. Here’s a breakdown.

 

The Stihl iMow

We stock Stihl’s iMow lawnmowers, and the higher range model, the Stihl iMow 632 PC can cut an area of grass up to 4,000 square metres. You can remove the keypad so it’s easy to program (you don’t have to be crouched down to set it up). We currently have this model on sale.

The iMow RMI 422 P is the smaller model than the 632. It can cover up to 1,000 square metres — perfect for most homes. All Stihl iMowers run off Lithium-Ion batteries and are completely self-sufficient once they’re installed. This means that, theoretically, once they’re set up and properly programmed you shouldn’t have to touch them again. They have a timer scheduling system that’s very similar to that of a water sprinkler, so you can choose the days and times you want it to start cutting your grass. 

The iMow knows its own battery life and will automatically return to its charging dock without your help. Once recharged, it can resume cutting if needs be. 

Safety

One of the chief concerns with robotic lawn mowers is their safety. Are they safe to run unsupervised? The simple answer is yes. The iMow has built-in safety sensors. If it hits an obstruction like a rock, football, or tree or something left in the garden, the lawn mower will bump into it and then turn away in the opposite direction.

If someone tries to reach under, sensors will instantly stop the blades, and then the iMow will turn around 180 degrees and move 10 feet away before re-activating the blade.

The blade is deep inside the unit and is surrounded by a safety skirt so that the sensors can detect danger long before anything is at risk of ever touching the blades. To increase safety, rather than the blade itself being height-adjustable, the entire unit raises or lowers closer to the ground.

Adjustability

The eight adjustable heights (from 1-8) are adjusted by simply turning a knob on the panel. This raises or lowers the entire deck rather than the blade. You can also set it up to go to up to 4 different zones, and have it go to some zones more often than others. If you see one area needs more attention than another, you can change the plan so that it spends more time in that area than other areas. This ensures that your lawn can look good all of the time.

Parts

The iMow is the only robotic lawn mower that uses a standard lawnmower blade. Both sides of the blade are sharp, and to increase the lifetime of the blade, every time the iMow hits an obstruction it stops, then automatically reverses the direction of the blade until it hits another obstruction. This means that over time, wear and tear is evened out and the blade lasts twice as long. 

Results

So, are robotic lawn mowers any good? Aside from the key features above, the last question is about results. This depends on what you are personally after. If you want a well-maintained garden with no work on your part, we recommend the iMow hands down.

I hope this answers some of your questions. If you have any other queries don’t hesitate to check out our range, or call us on 021-4965132.

chainsaw safety

Chainsaw Safety Guide

At Douglas Forest & Garden,  we treat chainsaw safety as our priority. For this reason, we stick to manufacturers that we know and trust. Stihl is one of our preferred manufacturers for various garden equipment, and their chainsaws are no exception. 

The Irish Health and Safety Authority released this chainsaw safety guide which we strongly encourage all chainsaw users to read. It states that in the twelve year period from 1996-2008, 13 people in Ireland were killed while working with a chainsaw. The HSA estimated that chainsaws caused about 7% of all injuries in the Forestry and Agriculture sector in Ireland, resulting in roughly 100 serious injuries annually.

Many people only use a chainsaw occasionally, so they often lack the awareness, knowledge, training or experience required for various situations. While the chainsaw itself can pose serious risks, it’s important to be aware that the majority of fatal accidents are actually caused by falling trees or branches. We discuss some of the dangers in our post on how to safely use a pole saw

Because chainsaws are dangerous, appropriate training is essential. We strongly advise you to wear protective clothing to help prevent serious injuries.  If you don’t have protective clothing and equipment, then we advise against using a chainsaw.

Before You Use the Chainsaw

Here are some basic tips from the chainsaw safety guide (though it is essential that you read both your chainsaw manual and also study the full HSA guide. We also provide literature to chainsaw users — feel free to call us and request it).

Most direct chainsaw injuries result from cuts to the legs, arms, neck, head and trunk. For this reason, you must wear proper clothing to protect against these injuries. Chainsaws also produce sound over 100db, putting your hearing at risk – hearing protection is also required. chainsaw safety

Most chainsaws are designed for right-handed use. For this reason, you should have your right hand on the throttle, and hold the handle with your left hand. Keep your left thumb under the handle at all times. Get familiar with where the controls. Where they are and what they’re for. This is essential in case you must stop the chainsaw quickly in an emergency.

Always keep the chainsaw properly maintained. In particular, check that the air filter is clean and the chain is sharp. We provide a professional chainsaw service in our Cork centre.

How to Start the Chainsaw

Before you start the engine, hold the saw still on a flat surface using your right foot on the handle — make sure the chain is clear.  Hold the front handle (use your left hand). Then pull the starter cord using your right hand. If the chainsaw is not cutting, apply the chain brake. To do this, let the engine drop to idle and applying the chain broke with the back of your left hand, by rolling the hand on the front handle.

Under no circumstances should a chainsaw be held above shoulder height, and having a firm balanced stand is absolutely essential.  To learn more about the safety steps before using a chainsaw, please follow the above HSA link for the chainsaw safety guide. For any questions relating to chainsaw best practices, please feel free to contact us on 021-4965132.

lawnmower service cork

How to Service Your Own Lawnmower

Note: This post is for those who just want a few tips and tricks for keeping their lawnmower well maintained. If you have any serious issues and the below steps do not work, we’d recommend you give us a call or drop your mower into us here at Douglas Forest & Garden. We have a dedicated in-house service for lawnmower repair.

Do Your Own Lawnmower Service in 7 Simple Steps

1. Read the manual

Not to be pedantic, but it’s always worth glancing over the manual that comes with your mower. Every lawnmower is different and some of them have their own quirks, so the first step before tinkering is always to check the manual to ensure you’re doing the right thing for your make and model.

2. Drain the petrol

If it’s the start of the summer and you have a bit of petrol from last year, drain it. Believe it or not, petrol spoils after a few months. It’s a common reason for lawnmowers to have issues. Before you spend twenty minutes straining yourself pulling the chord, drain the lawnmower and replace it with fresh petrol.

3. Check your lawnmower’s oil

If it’s very dark or contains floating debris, drain the oil and replace it with the appropriate oil. In most models, to change the oil you need to remove a drain plug beneath the lawnmower. Make sure that you drain it completely.  If the lawnmower doesn’t have a drain plug, check your manual to be sure, but in most cases, you need to tilt the mower on its side and drain it through the ‘fill hole’.

4. Clean the lawnmower’s undercarriage

With our wet Irish weather, grass can quickly cake into the undercarriage. The caked grass blocks the blade and clogs the discharge chute. You will need to turn the mower on its side to access the undercarriage. Before doing this it’s often best to ensure the petrol tank is empty as this can leak.

lawnmower service cork

As a safety precaution, always ensure the lawnmower is completely switched off, and remove or disconnect the spark plug before working. Use a wire brush to scrape grass clippings and dirt from the undercarriage and spray the remaining debris away with a hose. 

5. Change the sparkplug

Sparkplugs are inexpensive and easy to replace. If your lawnmower isn’t starting after a few tries and you have tried the above steps first, it might be time to change your sparkplug.

In most models, to do this you unhook the sparkplug wire and take out the old plug with a socket or monkey wrench. Make sure not to overtighten the new sparkplug or the lawnmower won’t start.

6. Sharpen the lawnmower’s blades

Branches, stones and other objects take their toll on a lawnmower’s blades, which become dull after a few uses. A dull blade tears grass rather than cutting it cleanly. You can sharpen the blades with a vice and metal file but we do not recommend this for the inexperienced. 

7. Get it serviced professionally

If all else fails, getting a professional lawnmower service ensures that it’s in top working order for the summer. Our lawnmower service will do all of the above steps, plus check and service the lawnmower’s air filter, engine, and examine for faults.

If you are looking for a new lawnmower we recommend you check out our site as we often run a lawnmower sale. Any questions? Please give us a call on 021-4965132.

 

exit swimming pools cork

The ‘Stone’ Exit Swimming Pool

Summer is coming and we’re starting to think about life outside the home and in the garden. When we get sunshine, Cork can be one of the most beautiful spots in the world to spend quality time outdoors with friends and family. And what better way to take advantage of it than in a pool? At Douglas Forest & Garden, we have the entire range of Exit Swimming Pools available, and it’s about this time of year when people start asking us about our range of Exit Swimming Pools. In particular their largest model, the Exit Stone. Here’s a rundown of what you get with the Exit Stone Swimming Pool and why we can comfortably recommend it – even in our Cork climate.

  1. The Exit Stone (5.4-metre length x 2.5-metre width x 1 metre depth)

The Stone Exit Swimming Pool is Exit’s largest pool. Included with the Stone is the Exit ‘Pool Dome’ and filter pump, and, of course, a ladder.  The Stone is perfect for up to 9 people to enjoy over the summer.  But unlike other outdoor pools, Exit comes with a ‘Dome’ — making it perfect for Ireland.

The Dome

The Stone Swimming Pool comes with a ‘Dome’, a hood which keeps your pool clean, and crucially for Cork, helps heat the water. This allows you to enjoy your swimming pool throughout the summer without having to worry about the weather. This tall, transparent hood has three windows and a door, so you can adjust the heat. It straps around the outside of the pool and stays there quite happily – even with a breeze. The Dome makes the pool perfect for our Irish weather. It keeps the breeze and bugs away and, like a greenhouse, keeps your pool warm.exit swimming pools cork

The Dome is opened and closed easily with a gas-powered hinge mechanism, but you can also leave the Dome open just by the pool ladder so you can get in and out easily without messing about.  The dome is very spacious – not too low – so you and your 8 friends can throw a ball around and enjoy yourselves.

Strength and Durability

The Stone Exit Swimming Pool (named for the ‘stone-like’ effect on the outside) isn’t going anywhere. It’s very strong and durable, with a frame composed of thick, black steel (50 mm diameter). The steel is galvanised and powder coated to protect from rust. The walls are composed of  3 durable layers of PVC and polyester. They’re strong and sturdy and they take a fair beating. But just in case the pool eventually succumbs to wear and tear, Exit provides a liner repair kit. Also included is a filter pump, which keeps the water fresh and prevents pollution. This is easily mounted on the pool (and can be replaced easily using a filter cartridge – which is included).

One other question we get asked about the Exit swimming pool is how to keep it clean. It’s not as difficult as people think. While the pump does an excellent job of keeping the water fresh, we recommend you also use chlorine tablets and a low-cost chlorine dispenser can be purchased at Douglas Forest & Garden to do this.   I hope this answers any questions you may have. But if you have any further thoughts or questions, please give us a call today on 021-4965132

Agri-Fab garden sweeper

How Agri-Fab Lawn Sweepers Can Save Time

Someone recently asked us how Agri-Fab Lawn Sweepers work and whether they’re any good. A lawn sweeper is a very effective replacement for a manual, old fashioned rake. A lawn sweeper clears up grass, leaves and clippings. If you spend any amount of time raking your garden, you’re going to want one of these. There are two kinds of lawn sweepers, push and pull, and we carry three models:

  1. The Agri-Fab 26″ Push Lawn Sweeper

    The Agri-Fab 26″ Push Lawn Sweeper is manually pushed around your lawn as you would use a lawnmower. The 26″ push lawn sweeper does the job in half the time compared with using a garden rake. It’s easy to push, and it uses a set of 10″ brushes that rotate 4.5 times per wheel rotation, and the brush height is adjustable so that you can get it to snap up any leaves in its path and throw it into its 200 litre container as you glide along most surfaces, including gravel and mulch.

  2. Agri-Fab 52″ Pull Lawn Sweeper

    Agri-Fab yard sweeperThe 52″ Pull Lawn Sweeper weighs about 38kg and is towed by your tractor lawn mower (using a nice and easy hitch connection). These have an easy to use pull-to-dump lever so you can just give it a yank and drop all the collected debris in the one spot for mulching, composting or dumping. 
    Here’s a home-made video somebody recorded of the Agri-Fab pull lawn sweeper in action. It has the same concept as the push lawn sweeper. The main differences are that it uses semi-pneumatic tyres for better traction, and its effective area is twice the width of the push lawn sweeper. It also has more than three times the capacity with its 708-litre container.

  3. The Agri-Fab 44″ Tow Smart Lawn Sweeper

    The 44″ Smart Tow is another pull lawn sweeper. Aside from being slightly narrower than the 52″ Pull by 8″, it has an updated ‘Smart’ design which prevents it from occasionally skipping. It also has a 708-litre container.  This means that the sweeper almost always rakes up the leaves,p so that you don’t have to go back over an area. One of the key advantages of the 44″ Tow Smart is that it allows you to cut grass using the mower and sweep at the same time so that you can get the job done in one go. The hitch system also works in a way that helps avoid obstacles. 

 

I hope that this explains how Agri-Fab Lawn Sweepers work and shows that they are much more effective than using a manual garden rake. Especially if you have a medium to large sized garden. If you have any further questions or would like to order, please don’t hesitate to call us on 021-4965132.

 

berg trampolines

Which Berg Trampoline Is Best For You?

At Douglas Forest and Garden, we stick with brands we trust. We’ve tried many different brands of trampolines and after bouncing around between different models over the years we settled on Berg. Berg trampolines have the right balance between price and quality, their trampolines are durable, built to last and their back-up service is unmatched. For these reasons, Berg is also our preferred brand for Go-Karts.

Berg Trampolines

berg trampolines

We’re often asked what the difference is between the different Berg trampoline ranges. With so many options it can get a bit confusing between the Talent range, the Favorit range, Champion range and Champion Elite range.  The main things you need to know is how much ground space you have, what kind of restrictions are there to your space? Are you in an urban area or countryside? How many kids do you have — the more kids, the larger jumping load you’ll have to take into account.  

All ranges are available in-ground and regular. There are also different safety nets available.  If you have any specific requirements, there’s going to be a Berg Trampoline to suit you and your family’s needs. 

The Talent Range

The Berg Talent is a range of smaller trampolines, designed to fit in smaller gardens. Whereas all other categories come in four standard sizes, Berg Talent come in three extra-small sizes ranging from 6ft, 8ft and 10ft.

The Favorit Range

The Berg Favorit is the entry level for the standard-sized Berg Trampolines and for this reason Favorit are the most popular. All Favorit, Champion and Elite range models are available in 4 sizes: 9ft, 11ft, 12.5 and 14ft.

The Favorit are a decent trampoline that take a jumping load of 46 stone (290kg) in total weight. The padding on the Favorit is 20mm thick and it tapers out to 10mm around the edges. That might not seem like a lot of padding — it’s less than the higher-end models, but it’s still one of the best on the market. 

The Champion Range

Berg Champion models have double gold spring technology. A Berg Champion can take a jumping load of 64 stone (406kg) which is a massive increase in strength. The other major difference with Champion compared to the Favorit range is the thickness of the padding. Champion trampolines have padding 30mm thick (that’s 50% more padding).

The Elite Range

The Berg Elite are the absolute top of the range. As with the Champion range, they take a jumping load of 64 stone (406kg) . However, the elite range has extra thick 45mm padding with different textures for maximum safety at greater heights. Check out the video here for an overview.

 

We hope that this helps clarify the difference between the ranges of Berg trampolines. But if you have any questions drop in to Douglas Forest and Garden, or give us a call today on 021-4965132

pole saws cork

How to Use a Pole Saw

Do you own, or are you considering buying a pole saw in Cork or Ireland? Pole Saws are an invaluable tool around the garden, and it’s helpful to know when it’s appropriate to use it.

When to Use a Pole Saw

If you’re cutting thicker branches or vines and you can’t reapole saws corkch it, you’re either going to need to prune from a ladder, call in an expert or use a pole saw. A prune saw will allow you to cut from the ground to anywhere up to 6.4 metres. 

Because you must stand under the branch you’re cutting, safety is a must. Tree surgeons will usually secure branches with rope so that once they are cut there is no risk of them falling on top of them. You won’t be able to do this with a pole saw. For safety reasons, you must avoid cutting heavier wood. It’s for this reason that Pole Saws are designed for use on limbs of up to but not beyond a thickness of 5 centimetres.

Also be aware that if you hold equipment overhead for long periods of time you will get exhausted quite quickly, so it’s important that you take regular breaks. Exhaustion will make you sloppy, and it’s important to be alert and consider how you are going to make a cut safely before you begin. Also, be aware of power lines near any branches you are cutting. If the line is near or below the branch, call a professional. 

How To Safely Use Your Pole Saw

  1. Clear the way
    Make sure there are no obstacles near you. Your attention will be upwards and it’s easy to stumble or fall on something. For lower branches, it might be best to use handheld garden prunes.
  2. Plan where you will need to cut
    Don’t be impatient.  Most branches will need a number of smaller cuts to reduce the weight before your final cut.
  3. Position the saw
    Bring your pole saw to a vertical position using both hands. Take care to control its weight. When you bring the saw to your cutting spot, let the saw’s weight rest on the branch.
  4. Position yourself
    Find a position where you can hold the pole saw at chest level while standing well off to the side of the limb, never below it. The pole saw should be at an angle while you cut, not directly up and down. 
  5. Make a groove
    To start, cut perpendicular to the branch so that your first stroke create a groove in the wood to guide you. This will make the rest of the cut easier.
  6. Finish your cut.
    Keep your eye on the branch and be ready to step out of the way at any time.
  7. Clear the area 
    Remove all obstacles before cutting the next branch so that it does not trip you up.

Buying a Pole Saw

If you want to buy a pole saw either in Cork or anywhere in Ireland, we have a number of options available. We are big fans of Stihl products for garden work, and they make the best pole saws. If you need something with more reach, we can recommend the Silky Hayauchi Telescopic Polesaw. Have any questions or queries? Don’t hesitate to contact us today on 021-4965132

 

stihl vacuum shredder

When to Use a Vacuum Shredder

Are you considering buying a vacuum shredder, but unsure if it’s suitable for your garden? While leaf blowers are a handy way to keep your lawn tidy, unless you have a clearing nearby, you’re often still left with the task of cleaning the leaves and debris afterwards. One possible solution for this is the Stihl SH 86 C-E Vacuum Shredder  (currently on sale).

stihl vacuum shredder

When to Use a Vacuum Shredder

Keep in mind that vacuum shredders work best on small-to-medium sized, well-manicured lawns. So if you have a two-metre pile of leaves you are not going to get the results you’re after. But if you have an already reasonably tidy lawn with small piles of leaves, this could be the thing for you. It will pick up rubbish and debris also without disturbing soil beds, mulch or gravel.

The Stihl SH 86 C-E also functions a leaf blower using the included attachment, so you’re essentially getting two devices for the price of one. The SH 86 C-E also comes with a bag attachment and hose for its vacuum function. It can suck leaves not just from the lawn, but from your decking, drive and gravel, as well as mulch and straw. It’s strong enough to vacuum up the leaves without disturbing your garden or gravel or sucking up other unwanted material. It also does a fine job of mulching the leaves so that they can be used for fertiliser. Weighing in at 5.6kg, it’s not too heavy and it’s comfortable enough to use for extended periods. It’s also handy if you used a hedge strimmer and want an easier way to dispose of the trimmings.

Turning your Stihl Vacuum Shredder into a Blower

Transforming the Stihl SH 86 C-E into a blower is also quite simple. You just remove the bag and hose, remove the vacuum nozzle, then slide on the blower nozzle. Then crew it in so that it is airtight. To set this up, you’ll spend less than five minutes in total. The Stihl saves a lot of space and cost, especially if your shed is already full enough!

Interested in finding out more? Check out this great review of the Stihl SH 86 C-E. If you’d like to purchase a Stihl Vacuum Shredder at Douglas Forest & Garden, or you simply have a few questions, please don’t hesitate to call us on 0214965132.

How to Choose a Ride On Lawn Mower

Anyone with a sizable garden knows the pain of managing a lawn with a regular push lawn mower. Here are a few pointers to help you evaluate if a ride on lawn mower is best suited to you. 

  1. Evaluate the length and width of your garden. One acre is equal to roughly 4,046 square metres.
    Multiply the length of your garden by the width in metres and divide your total by 4,046 to determine the size of your garden in acres. 
    A medium-small garden is one which is under half an acre in size.
  2. A ride on lawn mower is best suited to a larger space, which is anything over half an acre. 
  3. Ride on lawn mowers are pricier and require maintenance, including blade sharpening.
    This is something we cover at Douglas Forest and Garden.
  4. Check the cutting width of each model. A larger cutting width will mean fewer passes to finish the job. 
  5. Search YouTube for amateur reviews of the model you are interested in. You can often find helpful tips and suggestions. Here is an example.

How to Choose the Best Hot Tub for You

Hot Tubs in Ireland

There’s no doubt that there is a common misconception around Irish weather being unsuitable for having a hot tub and this couldn’t be further from the truth. We imagine the sun shining before going out into our backyards and getting undressed and getting into water. Anything else would seem strange. But think of our Nordic neighbours who are happy to tell us that the moment you want to run indoors from the weather is actually the best time to use your hot tub. This is a great way to enjoy a little Irish rain from the comfort of your back garden.

Here in Ireland we know well how long and cold a winter can be. For the most part Irish people rarely use their garden during the winter months. Having a hot tub is a great way of getting more use out of your garden during the colder months whilst reaping the benefits of total relaxation after a stressful day, a long day on your feet or just making the most of having the opportunity to completely unwind anytime you want.


Which Type of Hot Tub is Should I Buy?

There are a wide variety of hot tubs available depending on your needs. From size differences to indoor or outdoor use or both. The choice will depend on what you’re looking for aesthetically and if you intend on using the hot tub for leisure, health or both.

Wooden Hot Tubs

Wooden hot tubs look fantastic aesthetically in gardens. Our favourite is the Lay-Z Spa Helsinki Airjet Hot Tub with a realistic wooden design around the outside, giving it the wooden aesthetic alongside the ability to use it indoors and outdoors.


Sunken Hot Tubs

In ground option

Sunken hot tubs involve creating a space in your garden to allow for the sunken space. One way is by lowering the hot tub into the ground. For this approach the hole should be concrete or brick or else lined with plastic in order to avoid direct contact with the soil. The surrounding area can then be designed to your personal preferences, with tiles, wooden panelling or even some gardening. Since there isn’t a platform, this method is great for anyone with walking difficulties.

Deck/Terrace/Patio Option

A great way to have a sunken hot tub but still have it raised is by building the hot tub into a deck or patio. It is also advantageous as it allows for easy ways to hide the accompanying equipment. All of these little things can be stashed away under the deck for a more aesthetically pleasing option.

 

Outdoor vs Indoor Hot Tubs

Deciding on having an indoor or outdoor hot tub can be a big decision. Majority of our hot tubs can be used both indoors and outdoors and deciding which you are going to use yours for is best decided by taking a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both.

 

Indoor Hot Tub Advantages

During colder months of the year your hot tub will provide extra warmth in the room and surrounding rooms where the hot tub is situated.

Indoor Hot tubs have the advantage of having a little extra privacy that you may not be able to get from an outdoor one.

Indoor hot tubs provide privacy and convenience, which outdoor ones sometimes lack.



Indoor Hot Tub Disadvantages

Extra ventilation will be required in the room you choose for your hot tub. This should be taken into consideration ahead of purchase.

Once you add the cost of ventilation plus additional room, indoor hot tubs can cost more than outdoor ones.

 


Outdoor Hot Tub Advantages

Outdoor hot tubs cost considerably less than indoor hot tubs, when you factor in the costs of ventilation and space for an indoor hot tub.

Many people enjoy the weather and love lounging outdoors in a hot tub. Outdoor hot tubs provide you with the opportunity to relax outdoors in a comfortable temperature, even when the weather isn’t great.



Outdoor Hot Tub Disadvantages

They can often require more maintenance due to debris found outdoors such as leaves and dirt etc.. An indoor hot tub is better protected from the elements and doesn’t require as much maintenance..

Heavy rain, snow or hail may inconvenience individuals which will reduce the amount of time actually spent in the hot tub.

Hot Tubs Cork

Who doesn’t love a hot tub in the summertime?  When the sun is out, we don’t need many excuses to get out in our back garden, enjoy a drink and relax with family or friends — but to be fair, a hot tub makes a great excuse.

Our customers sometimes ask if our Irish weather is unsuitable for a hot tub. Yet the truth about hot tubs is that their best time to shine is when the sun is behind clouds. They can make any weather a pleasure. Anyone who has experienced a hot tub on the ski slopes will know what I mean. You can view our full range of hot tubs in Ireland here.


A hot tub in Cork?

It’s the cold weather, snowy weather — wet weather — that makes the perfect match for a hot tub. Our Nordic neighbours know better than we do that the best time to get in one is when we’d usually run indoors. Speaking of Nordic, the hot tub featured in the above image is the aptly named ‘Lay-Z-Spa Helsinki‘. 

Just the thought of rain often stops us from enjoying our garden space. But with a hot tub, even the cold, wet periods can become a time for pleasure, to get out and enjoy the fresh air. Like coffee and cream, it’s all about the contrast. The hot tub’s deep heat warms you to your bones, and it takes the little dabs of rain pattering down on your face to remind you just how cosy you are. In Cork’s rainier seasons, I can spend days at a time cooped up indoors.  Having a hot tub frees you from your confines and offers a new way to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. 

Hot tubs for health

That’s not even discussing the health benefits, not just of getting out and enjoying the fresh air, but also the benefits for arthritis. We’ve spoken before about the health benefits of a hot tub. Arthritis and joint pain are at their worst in colder periods. A hot tub is an antidote to aches and pains. 

Our Range of Hot Tubs

We currently deal exclusively with Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs. We choose them for their quality, reliability and easy setup. See more of our hot tubs.

Hot Tub Health Benefits

We all know that hot tubs provide relaxation and pleasure but did you know that hot tub hydrotherapy provides physical health benefits which go much deeper?

Whether you are using an inflatable spa or a rigid hot tub the benefits are the same. The inflatable Lay-Z-Spa range actively promotes a healthy lifestyle and represents a significantly better value alternative to customers than traditional fixed hot tubs, spas and Jacuzzis on the market, without compromising on the health benefits.

 

Hydrotherapy

Often prescribed for the following conditions: Arthritis, Stress, Headaches, Diabetes, Muscles and Joint injuries, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Scoliosis, and Fibromyalgia.

The 40 degree warm water of the Lay-Z-Spa hot tub helps to stimulate the body and release endorphins; we all know that a long hot bath is always the best cure for a good night’s sleep! Combine the warm water with the Lay Z massage water jets of the Lay-Z-Spa inflatable pool and you have found therapeutic hot tub heaven! Evidence has suggested that the heat can help your blood vessels to open up and reduce blood pressure whilst the massage jets stimulate better circulation. The buoyancy of the water also helps to give the feeling of weightlessness and take pressure off joints and limbs.

Skin and muscles loosen and relax from the increased circulation when in the warm water of an inflatable hot tub. The gentle massaging jets increase blood flow to injured areas, bringing much needed nutrients to help repair the damage. Powerful hydrojets are perfect for the hydrotherapy sessions many athletes now use as part of their recovery training programmes.

For conditions such as arthritis simply taking the pressure off joints in a hot tub can provide relief of symptoms and can increase ability to perform daily tasks with more ease. 

Sleep Therapy

Sitting in a hot tub raises your body temperature and the weightlessness caused by the buoyancy of the water can be deeply relaxing creating the right conditions for a deeper sleep. Studies also suggest that once your body temperature has dropped on leaving the portable spa that this temperature change may also induce a deeper sleep. Consider a full length spa so you can recline for optimal relaxation before bed.

Type 2 Diabetes & Hot Tubs

Recent studies have shown that with continued use of hot tub therapy of up to 30 minutes a day can help with type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar. However this does come with a warning; as a drop in blood sugar may not be immediately apparent until an individual has exited the tub, with this is mind we would advise you leave your lay-z-spa hot tub gradually and seek proper medical advice before using a hot tub so as to really feel and appreciate the benefits of this wonderful hot tub hydrotherapy.

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.

berg_trampoline

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.
