          Providing you don't require a GREEN tree, you might consider this tree.
          The Home Accents tree is 7.5 feet tall and is assembled from 4 pieces (including the tree stand). The stand has a unique locking system, folds into position and a lock collar secures the legs in a very sturdy position.
          The tree itself is 3 sections with the lowest section fitting securely into the stand. The base section also contains the electric cord, plug and the (foot pedal) switch. The cord is plenty long to reach a wall outlet and should allow you to avoid using an extension cord.
          Each of the upper 2 sections fit into the corresponding section and the center post provides the power connection for the lights.

          Should you wish to use a tree topper (lighted star), will need a separate extension cord.
          This tree doesn't take up a whole lot of space. I would say it fits in a 4 to 5 foot circle or less. It is a little heavy when assembled at about 45 pounds. Set up is relatively easy however, I found the white coloring gives off a little dust during assembly. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, lights built in, no extension cords needed, on/off foot pedal switch
          Cons: a little heavy, sheds dust during set up.

          The 12.5 foot icicle string has 12 lights evenly spaced and range from 4 1/2 inches to 6 1/2 inches in length.
          They alternate color and pattern every few seconds or so.
          Very well packaged in a sturdy box that has a measuring diagram on the front. This is very helpful in determining which set to buy since they come in varying lengths. Measure the area you want to decorate and then match that to the diagram on the box front (lower left corner). The diagram shows the total length and the length of just the lights.
          These are a little heavy compared to average lights so be sure to consider a sturdy hanging system.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          A very nice light set to perk up your holiday inside or out.
          Each icicle alternates between 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches in length. The light pattern also alternates colors in varying patterns of solids to 2 colors and even multi color. Solid or flashing.
          This is the 24.5 foot string but they are available in varying lengths. Something I found very useful is on the box itself. In the lower left corner of the box front, is a diagram for over all length and of just the lights. I found it useful in determining which set to buy for where I wanted to hang them. A quick measurement for my location and compare that to the box diagram.

          This 12 foot extension has many potential uses. My favorite choice is for Holiday light decorations. It is the perfect cord for Christmas tree lights because it has 3 multi outlet plugs, spaced a few feet apart, making it ideal for a central location on the tree.
          I think we've all decorated a tree only to wind up with the light plugs in various locations. But with this cord, all of your lights should be able to reach.
          In addition, it has a built in on off switch between the wall plug and the first outlet. Also the plug is fused so over loads are protected from over heating potentially causing a safety hazard.

          The only thing missing is a remote control. But for me, that's all I need is another remote to keep track of not to mention, when you pack away the lights, should you also pack the cord with them, you have to remember to remove the batteries from that remote in case they leak. So I prefer to not have the remote. Read Less

          Upgrading your kitchen sink? Bathroom basin? You may need/want to consider using these supply lines.
          They are 36 inches long, 3/8 compression fitting at the shut off valve and 1/2 inch compression at the top to fit all standard sink fixtures.
          Flexible for easy installation and braided stainless steel makes them very strong and reliable. And because of the rubber compression seal, tightening only requires a small amount of wrench torque to obtain a leak proof seal. Typically 1/4 to 1/2 turn after the seal contacts.
          Braided supply lines are the only type I'll use.
          Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks, Reliable, Strong

          Hi, I read in some of the comments from Scotts that its best to plant the seed in Fall. Should I not plant in spring (now - April) then? I am in Portland Oregon area. Secondly, what location is the grass seed native of? I saw a Pennington at Costco which was originated in Pacific North West. Should that be a better option?

          Hello. There are variables to answering your questions. Beginning with when to plant, you always have to consider your climate. Generally it's fine to plant in fall but that simply means you won't enjoy or know the full results until the following spring. Planting can take place anytime throughout the typical growing season. However, things to consider are the amount of rainfall and the average frost season. If your area normally has it's last hard frost by the end of March, you can plant seed. Conversely is your earliest fall frost comes in mid November you won't want to seed. Grass seed is quite resilient but planting in a season where a hard frost is imminent may result in losing a percentage of seed and especially if that seed is just about to germinate. Hence, planting too far into the fall season, should the seed begin to sprout and you suddenly have a hard frost, at least some of that seed will be lost. The same holds true when planting in spring. Still, fall seed can winter well if it originates from an area that typically produces it's own seed when left unmowed. That seed will drop off and lay dormant until the following spring. Because of this the variety and quality of the product you purchase will have the most impact when determining the best time to plant. With that in mind, many products such as "Sun and Shade" contain a seed mixture (blend) in order to obtain the best coverage for a given area. The other environmental factors are precipitation. In order to achieve the best chances at a rapid and full germination (percentage of seed sprout), seed needs plenty of water but not too much. If when you plant it tends to be dry you'll want to sure to water at least once per day. You want to keep new seed moist but not constantly soaked. Flip side is if you plant when it tends to be very rainy, you have 2 potential problems. Too wet and the seed can rot or your soil can produce molds not conducive to to germination. Also excessive water can lead to seed wash out. Flip side, too little water and a long period of blazing sun can cause the seed to bake rendering it unable to sprout. Native grasses are probably always going to produce the best results, brands aren't normally a big factor as (again) most sell variety's in a blend. Your best bet is to know the estimated seed content of the brands your shopping. Also check the warranty of the seed you're considering. Typically seed will germinate between 5 to 10 days after sown but it can take longer considering environmental factors. Finally, since many brands carry similar warranties and planting tips, price is often the deciding factor. Your preparation and care are always going to be the most important factor in achieving a positive result. Read Less

          Scott's web site says a 20 lb bag will cover up to 4000 sq ft of bare ground or up to 8000 sq ft if patching. My experience is to cut that number in half but factors such as climate and soil type can have a huge impact on how well it performs for you.

          Answer: 
          Scotts web site says 20lbs (this product) will seed up to 4000 sq ft of NEW grass or up to 8000 sq ft for patches. As a personal rule I normally will count on half that much area. But as always, your location (state), climate and soil type can have an effect on how well this seed performs.
