Good Water Drainage For Your Home


Prior to the 1960s, the majority of homes were built with a water management system that drained directly into municipal storm sewers. Unfortunately, this type of drainage system is now considered illegal in many parts of North America. In many instances, storm water collected by each home was too much for the municipality to handle, overflowing into the sanitary sewer system. Sewage treatment plants could not accommodate the amount of runoff water that flowed into the system, discharging tons of untreated sewage into lakes and streams in the area. As these lakes and streams are also sources of drinking water for the area, the situation posed a serious health threat for inhabitants.

Most downspouts attached to homes are now designed to eliminate runoff water by simply discharging it on the ground, near the base of the house, or slightly further away. Downspouts may also be attached to an underground drainage system, also known as a French Drain. However, this design is costly, requiring professional routine clearance of debris and other clogging substances in the underground piping. Both types do not discharge water directly into the municipal storm sewer; runoff water needs to travel before reaching the sewer. Therefore, some water can be absorbed by the ground before it reaches the sewer, which is beneficial for the natural groundwater aquifer.

For downspouts that simply discharge water on the ground, it is vital that this not affect the ground surrounding the home. Serious problems may result from runoff water pooling around the structure of the house. It could erode the soil in your yard, creating an eyesore and leaving a slick muddy mess impossible to plant a lawn and garden in or walk through. Collecting water may leak into the basement, making it dank and a perfect environment for health-threatening mold. And the worst problem: it may seep into the foundation of the home, causing wood to rot and concrete to crack. If this occurs, your house will require immediate repairs to prevent a catastrophe.

That's why runoff water must be eliminated far from the base of your home. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on an expensive drainage system that will require costly routine maintenance, there is an economical solution. Attaching downspout extenders to each downspout will get rid of runoff water. Downspout extenders extend the length of downspouts so that water will not pool around the house. Rather, it will disperse the power of flowing water and spray out at a safe distance, ideally at six feet.


All About of Planters Window Boxes

Planters & Window Boxes

Planters and window boxes are an easy way to brighten up any space and inject some colour into your home or garden. There are many different styles of planters , including small ceramic pots to large wooden flower boxes that come with their own trellis. They offer an easy way to grow vegetables & fruits , herbs and flowers. A brightly painted ceramic planter can instantly make your garden feel more vibrant. If you prefer more muted colours , go for plant pots in green , black , white or grey.

Outdoor Planters and Flower Boxes

flower  box

Most large planters are designed to be kept outside. Planters and flower boxes usually come in a round , square or rectangular shape and most are several centimetres deep with drainage holes at the bottom. Outdoor planters can be kept on patios , in yards , on balconies or on the grass. Slightly raised styles can also help to save you from getting a bad back when tending to your plants or flowers. Some come with a trellis to encourage plants like roses to grow higher and entwine with the wooden slats.

Gorgeous Window Boxes

Window boxes brighten up the outside of any house or balcony. They can usually be attached underneath or in front of the window with a couple of hooks drilled into the wall. If DIY isn't your thing you can also find wall planters or window boxes with their own hooks that attach onto balcony railings , or you could buy one which simply stands on your windowsill. They come in a range of styles , from traditional grey metal embellished with a floral pattern , to modern , lightweight fibreglass models.

Nature Goes Indoors

flower  pots

An indoor planter or flower box adds greenery and nature to your living room , bedroom , or kitchen. There are plenty of small models on the market , so you can place a flower box on your desk or bedside table , or have a little planter on your mantelpiece. Lots of indoor planters are self-watering , so they will gradually let out the right amount of water to keep your plants in tip-top condition. If your indoor planter has drainage holes in the bottom , put a little plate or tray underneath to prevent messy floors.

Simply the Best Materials

Outdoor planters and window boxes come in a range of weather-proof materials , from lightweight plastics and fibreglass to heavy , durable wood. If you have limited space or want to change your garden layout often , then plastic styles may be best. Wooden or ceramic styles look beautiful but can be heavy to move. When it comes to an indoor flower box or planter , choose on-trend wicker or beautifully patterned ceramics. Macrame hanging baskets are also a great choice for an indoor planter , but they aren't suitable for outdoor conditions.

Cleaning Your Planter

window  boxes Some metal planters are prone to rust and need regular upkeep and cleaning. At a certain point , they may get rusty , but it can just add to the shabby-chic look. Plastic planters are the easiest to keep clean with a quick jet from the hose or a wipe-down with a damp cloth. Wooden planters can be cleaned the same way , but are more prone to dirt build-up and moss/algae. Give them a quick blast with a pressure washer at the start of every summer.

What to Grow In Your Planters

Outdoor plant pots are perfect for growing vegetables or flowers. If you have a trellis then you can use them to grow sweet peas , jasmine , or climbing roses. For a flower box or hanging basket , try bright flowers like petunias or begonias , with heather to climb over the sides. If you're keeping your plant pot inside , place it by a sunny window and grow a variety of herbs for cooking. An indoor planter set makes a great homeware accessory and focal point for mantelpieces. The extra storage is great too.

Accessories For Planters

planters If you're giving your home or garden a mini-makeover with new planters and pots , grab some colourful accessories to go with them. Wall decor always adds interest and fun to outdoor spaces. It works well on smaller , darker areas with no grass , such as yards and balconies. Garden sculptures always make people smile , especially cute animal statues or cheeky gnomes. If you have a trellis or gazebo you can thread fairy lights through the wooden slats to give your garden a magical feel at night. Many are solar-powered so they don't need batteries.

    I bought 2 and am I glad. I set up the boxes in like two minutes and put stereo gear in it for my patio. Dry and solid. We just had a week of 60 mph wind gusts and 10" of rain. Bothe boxes make great seats too and I found some cushions we had saved from another chair.I Split the cushon in halve and put each piece on a box and now have 2 more seats and nobody even know what they are sitting on. Great product,great price,and free shipping too!

    This deck box is exactly what I wanted to hold shoes on the front porch. I put it together in less than 10 minutes. And our cat has claimed it as his new outdoor bed. Love it even more since it came in white which is hard to find.

    I have a small patio and hate clutter. I bought this in white and it's big enough to hold my clippers, gloves, fertilizers, small garden tools, barbecue tools and a bag of charcoal. It's sturdy enough for me to sit on while barbecuing. Perfect for my needs and looks nice. It's easy to put together following the instructions. A great deal and arrived in no time at all.

    The storage seat is great. It fits perfectly on our small balcony. We have a small outdoor space and having a dual function piece is a tremendous plus. I would have given it 5 stars except for one possible issue. The back of the piece has a couple very small openings where the hinge that allows the seat to raise/open is located. We have the item up against a wall and under the balcony located in the apartment above us. So it won't be an issue for us. But if the storage seat were to be completely exposed to the elements there might be a chance rain could get inside in a driving windy heavy downpour. Other than that I'd give the storage seat an unqualified 5 star recommendation.

    Very cute. Not the sturdiest, but Ok for the price (was on sale). Splintered in parts when putting together and some holes did not line up well. Pretty easy to put together with 2 people. Going to finish the wood with oil so we’ll see if it survives the test of time...

    Good quality material , light enough for my balcony yet sturdy. Bit fiddly to put together, but I do have small hands , they didn’t simply click but once constructed they look attractive and will be even better when they have some plants in. Great service received them days before the date stated on the booking confirmation. Very pleased - May order some more !
