          I really love this GENERAL TOOLS POCKET-SIZED 6-IN-1 MULTI USE RULE AND GAGE! It is extremely well made, with deeply engraved markings and even directions inscribed right on the tool, giving you help while you're using it! It is made with heavy gauge stainless steel, and very easy to use! There's even a drill gauge on the back, telling you threads per inch, tap size and size of drill bit to use! I highly recommend this tool!
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, Strong, Sturdy, extremely well made

          Woods is introducing a new line of refreshed indoor and outdoor timers! These new timers are easier to use and come with updated designs and colors to match any dcor, indoor or outdoor! New indoor timer features include 96-pins allowing your timer to be programable in 15-minute intervals as well as an LED indicator light that gives you a visual of when your timer is on. As a bonus, they wont block the bottom outlet allowing you to still use it to power your other appliances. Color: White.

          I just love my new Woods 24 Hour Heavy Duty Indoor Plug-In Grounded Outlet Mechanical Timer, White. It lets me set all of my necessary lights in 15- minute increments, instead of the older 30-minute increments, giving a more realistic appearance of someone being home while you’re away, thus adding to your security! I found that the instructions were written for the older 30-minute increments, but that was easy enough to figure out and correct. It has an LED light to let you know it’s working, and its unique design gives you access to the bottom outlet while using the timer. I highly recommend this product.
          Pros: Compact, Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Lots of Features, Nice Design

          Designed to lock securely into place with a simple pull of a cord, the Nite Ize CamJam is an easy, knot-free way to tighten, tension, and secure lighter loads of all kinds. Made of sturdy, durable plastic, it features a carabiner clip with a stainless steel gate on 1 end, and a rotating, ridged cam mechanism on the other. Simply anchor the carabiner to any hook, D-ring, or loop, and feed your cord through the cam until you've reached the desired level of tension. Pull firmly, and the cam locks into place and stays that way until you release it by rotating the cam. Easy to adjust and readjust, the CamJam is made to use and reuse hundreds of times, in hundreds of ways. Color: Black.

          I just love these CamJam Cord Tightener in Black (4-Pack). This is the second pack I got because they’re so handy, I use them all the time, mostly for hauling stuff on my motorcycle’s luggage rack, but also for securing loads in the back of my SUV. They are so easy to use, and because of their design, can be used in different configurations. Because of their small size. They can be stored almost anywhere, but really come in handy when you need them! I highly recommend these cord tighteners for everyone!
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design

          DESCRIPTION: Native Soil is a natural fertilizer made from nutrient-rich organic waste products that are sustainably-sourced and sold in the United States. A unique blend of powdered algae and kelp, dehydrated beer grains, sterilized municipal waste and food scraps creates a high quality, sustainable product that improves your soil and helps your plants really pop. Plants need a handful of specific nutrients to thrive things like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and Sulfur. While most fertilizers provide these basic nutrients, Native Soil goes even further to provide organic matter and carbon. Its a synthetic-free, all-in-one solution for a bountiful yield, week-after-week of the entire growing season. USES: Fertilize new and existing plants, mix into your soil as a conditioner, mix into your compost or run it through your hydroponic system (drip irrigation is not recommended unless you have a good filter). Your tomatoes, fruit trees, flowers, hemp and grasses will bloom longer, stronger and with superior flavor.

          I decided to give NATIVE SOIL 4 LBS. NATURAL DRY FERTILIZER AND SOIL CONDITIONER a try, after friends told me that it might just be what I need for my tender houseplants. It has 5.5% Nitrogen, 4.5% Phosphate, and 0.4% Soluble Potash, as well as the added benefit of Calcium, Iron and Sodium! This is much better than trying to scale down generic fertilizers made for large scale applications to lawns. Most houseplants don't need the higher ratios that are often found in those fertilizers, and this, to me, seems to be a much better choice!
          Pros: Easy to Install, Great Quality, Multi Use

          Czechmark Trilogy from Proven Winners is heavier blooming than a typical weigela, with flowers that contain three colors at once: white, pink, and red. This low-maintenance shrub blooms in spring and summer and does not require deadheading. It attracts bees and hummingbirds and resists deer and rabbits. Weigela are excellent landscape plants and work well in perennial and flower gardens as well. They perform best when planted in full sun, but some shade in hotter climates can be beneficial. If pruning is needed, do it immediately after flowering. Weigela in the Czechmark series were developed in the Czech Republic.

          This double check valve assembly is designed to prevent the backflow of polluted water from entering into the potable water supply due to back siphonage and or backpressure. It's compact modular design means easy maintenance with a single access cover for in-line repairs. It is ideal for protection in continuous pressure piping applications and at cross-connections identified as non-health hazards and for contaminants at the service line entrance. This assembly consists of a bronze body construction, NPT end connections, quarter turn ball valve shutoffs, top mounted test cocks, two in-line independent positive seating check modules, captured springs, and replaceable check discs and seats.

          This long leaf pine straw is a great alternative to traditional square bales or rolls. Equivalent to two square bales, you can avoid busted bales with this convenient bag that is easy to store and carry. The weed-controlling straw beautifies landscapes, while improving soil. Use it as a ground cover or mulch and to resist erosion.
           

          Is this proven to increase new grass germination and by what amount?

          Answer: 
          Pine straw is generally used more as a mulch and for preventing weed growth, as well as for its decorative properties under trees and around shrubs. If you are trying to germinate grass seed, try wheat straw!

          I see several comments going from April maybe a year or more describing small wood screws which hold the top to the frame, and these small screws becoming loose in shipping. From recent purchasers, say September, 2019, did you have this problem? Did you return the bench or fix the problem yourself? Thank you.

          Answer: 
          When I received mine, virtually all of the screws had been ripped out due to poor shipping. The first one I received was in such bad condition, including damage to the top from a forklift, it had to be replaced. The second one I received, the majority of the screws were damaged, and the company sent me replacements, and I installed them.
