          I really liked the looks of the Merola Classico Carrara glossy Metropolis 3"X 6" subway wall tile. The tile not only has a high sheen marble finish and color but also has a pattern. I used it as a kitchen back-splash but it can be used in a bathroom shower or accent wall indoors. The tile has 90 degree edges so the tile can be laid tight together with a small grout line or spaced with a grout line in white or a contrasting color. There is complete instructions on the website along with a tile calculator and a list of materials and tools needed for the project,

          The installation process for the Grohe L2 kitchen faucet is easy using a single hole in the sink. The instructions are pictures with arrows. There are not a lot of parts to put together but I wanted to know how they went together before starting. The bags have parts for a particular section in one bag.

          This dwarfing version of the exquisite and colorful PJM Rhododendron displays all the same beautiful qualities in a smaller, compact form. PJM Compacta grows well in almost the entire continental US and is especially popular in colder climates where other Rhododendrons couldn't survive. In the winter, PJM Compacta shrubs port-colored foliage will liven up the barren landscape, giving way to large and vibrant lilac-colored blossoms in early spring while also changing foliage color to a lighter shade of green. The bell-shaped flowers are hued with a lighter pink gradient and are wonderfully aromatic. Reaching a height of only 4 ft. and a spread of 3 ft., this small shrub is quite compact for the beauty that it boasts. It grows in USDA zones 4-9 and thrives in full sunlight but will grow in partial sun as well. We recommend that you water weekly for best results, but it may be necessary to do so more often during stretches of high heat. Because of the compact nature of the plant, they can be spaced close together to establish swathes of gorgeous purple-pink blooms.

          The compact rhododendron came directly from online orchards in Oregon via priority mail and you do not even have to go the store. It came well packaged in a box with the one gallon plastic container with plastic on top and burlap to keep it moist on the sides. The plant had nice green healthy leaves and should bloom in the spring or fall. The plant is best suited for USDA zones 4-9 in a cold climate where they can go dormant and then bloom after the cold. They can be planted in full or partial sun with weekly watering or as needed. The plant should have nice plentiful pink blooms in the spring.
          Pros: Vibrant Color, healthy green leaves, new growth, shipped fast

          As the industry leader, Kwikset has provided trusted security for over 70 years and has become synonymous with security, peace of mind, style and innovation. Simple and understated, the Ladera lever will surely delight. The linear and unadorned look of the Ladera lever makes it an excellent choice for a transitional or contemporary themed dcor. This privacy knob/lever is best used in interior bedroom and bathroom applications where privacy is required. Both knobs/levers are operated by the thumb turn on the inside. The outside knob/lever is unlocked by an emergency key. The Polished Chrome is perfect for coordinating in a bathroom with polished chrome fixtures.

          I updated my bedroom door knobs by replacing the round knobs with the modern looking Kwikset Ladera polished chrome bed and bathroom levers with square trim. The replacement was easy and all the parts match with the bright chrome finish. A tool for unlocking from the outside is included. The lever is easier to use and find in the dark or by the elderly. This is a simple nice quality door lever set.

Simple and understated, the Ladera lever will surely delight. The linear and unadorned look of the Ladera lever makes it an excellent choice for a transitional or contemporary themed dcor. This passage knob/lever is best used on interior hall and closet applications where no locking is required, so the knob/lever is always free to turn. The knob/lever is reversible and mounts on both left and right handed doors. The Polished Chrome is perfect for coordinating in a bathroom with polished chrome fixtures.

          The Kwikset Ladera polished chrome hall, closet door lever with square trim has the nice chrome finish on all parts including the strike plates. The square with the door lever gives a modern look and updates my older round knobs. The lever is easier to grip and use. The lever is easy to install when replacing existing knobs or as a new install. The simple design is well made and fits both right and left handed interior doors with a thickness of 1 3/8" to 1 3/4."
          Pros: Easy to Install, easy to grip, modern design

          Your description of the product does NOT match. It is a 10" driveway gate NOT a 42" walk gate and has never been corrected!

          I want a 10 FT.X4 FT steel frame with green fabric drive-through gate- 2 panels with the latch as described above. Is this what I would get for $123.00?

          The Husky 7-Piece Dual Direction Extraction Socket Set brings game-changing innovation to the world of bolt extraction. These sockets feature a tapered throat which allows for easy placement onto a fastener and ensures the fastener will not become lodged in the socket after removal. The sockets have a patented design that allows them to grip in both the left hand (Removal) and right hand (Installation) directions, this would allow for the reuse of a damaged fastener if needed.
