          EasyFlex 2-in-1 Landscape edging allows you to select which border style to use for your DIY landscape project. Use the flat, straight edge for a traditional look, or the scalloped edge for a decorative look. Also choose whether you prefer the mulch brown colored edging to have a wood grain texture or a smooth edging wall. Either way, your garden or flower bed will have a clean edge to provide a barrier between your plants and grass or weeds. Easily install EasyFlex 2-in-1 Landscape Edging in 3 simple steps. 1) score the ground along your garden or flower bed. 2) insert the edging into the scored section and hammer anchoring stakes (included) into the ground every 4 ft. 3) Backfill the edging with your desired ground cover. Although the overall height of the edging is 4.5 in., 2.5 in. should be inserted into the ground to stabilize the edging adequately. The EasyFlex 2-in-1 Landscape Edging kit contains one 20 ft. coil of edging and 6 anchoring stakes.

          This edging is easy to use,I measured what I needed to install around two Apple trees to protect them as they grow.It is made from ridged yet pliable plastic that is about a eighth inch thick.It is easy to cut with snips and comes with six plastic stakes to hold in place.I taped the ends together with a little overlap so I could mark the ground and used the end of a pick to score the ground and set the edging and staked it down. It looks really good and I plan on doing it to a couple blueberry bushes as well.It is a cost effective way to spruce up your landscaping.

          This Westinghouse Graham fan is nicely made and an energy saver.It is LED and is dimmable with the remote so you don't want to loose it.Its speed is also adjustable with the remote so no more pull chains which is nice.Installation was ok but the directions could have been better.The overall quality is good and it looks and runs fine.The blades are made from plywood instead of plastic and set at a steep angle which really works for cooling and the movement of air.Its perfect for my living room and the wife loves it.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Fast / Speed, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Unique, Very Bright, Well Made

          Capture a handcrafted, artisan appearance that seems to have been derived directly from twentieth-century Spain with the Merola Tile Novecento Subway Cobalto 2-1/2 in. x 5-1/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile. With a cobalt hand-painted crackle watercolor glaze, this rustic tile offers a glossy, reflective finish for a glass-like appearance. Asymmetrical edges and a smooth surface with varying indentations throughout this glossy tile fashion a handmade appearance. Derived from the classic subway format, this tile is tastefully smaller for a distinctive, unexpected design element. Due to its partially handmade process, each tile could offer slight size variation. This old-world tile is great as a cohesive look or paired with other items in the Novecento program. Intended for interior wall use, this tile is an excellent selection to accent your backsplash, shower wall, fireplace facade or accent wall. It is necessary that you seal this tile before grouting to prevent the absorption of staining agents over time.

          The Tech-Rail Teak 8-1/4 in. x 23-3/8 in. Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile is a breathtaking addition to our collection of wood-look tiles. Crafted in Spain, the combination ash grey and oyster glaze features a meticulously detailed grain accented in teak. To add further contrast and depth, this tile has subtle bumps and grooves that echo the texture of real wood. The finishing touch on this large plank is the imitations of scuffs and spots, which gives this tile an antiquated appearance reminiscent of distressed painted wood. This extruded porcelain tile has 12 different print variations for a one-of-a-kind look that can only be achieved through the partially handmade process. You have the ability to create endless design possibilities when you pair this with other products in the Tech-Rail series. This impervious, matte tile will look great in all indoor and outdoor locations, including walls, floors, and patios.

          These porcelain tiles look real nice and give a natural stone look to your project.They are heavy and thick and will last a life time of ware.You will need a tile saw which I rented from my HD to install,the tile scorer doesn't work with these tiles because of there thickness.They didn't take long to install and once completed looks amazing.I was real happy with the look and quality of the tile.

          Install the yard or pool fence you've always dreamed of and without the back breaking work of digging holes and pouring concrete. Virtually maintenance free and backed by a lifetime warranty, this simple but elegant yard and pool fence will look new for years to come. The best part of this fence is the innovative installation method. Because there is no digging deep hole or pouring concrete, it takes a lot of the time and labor out of installing your fence. You install the yard and pool fence post much like chain link has been installed for the past 50-years by first driving a steel 1-5/8 in. galvanized pipe anchor (included) deep into the ground with a sledge hammer or post pounder. If your pipe is slightly crooked after installation, you can utilize our patented leveling donuts (included), to adjust into level to compensate accordingly. Once you sleeve your vinyl post over the pipe, it's straight and level. The end result is a sturdy and strong permanent fence that wills last decades. For more detail, see our installation guides.

          Can anyone give me a comparison of this particular model versus the 8 Qt Insta Pot brand besides that this one is way bigger. Is it well made and have a good internal cooking chamber and does it seem to be worth going off brand? I have never heard of this brand before so a little skeptical, but I want a large size and 8 qt just doesn’t seem big enough for what I need it for
