Save Your Bird Bath This Winter With a Custom Cover


Custom Bird Bath Cover

My husband and I are bird watching nuts, and one of the best ways to attract birds to any backyard is by having a bird bath nearby.  Birds of all kind, from robins to sparrows to goldfinches, enjoy bathing parties in our bird bath throughout the spring, summer, and early fall.  This year, we even invested more than I care to admit for a larger, more decorative bird bath in the hope of attracting even more of our feathered friends.  It worked!

Now that winter is on our door step, though, we want to be sure that our bird bath survives the harsh winter weather.  We’ve had a number of bird baths in the past succumb to ice and snow, but since we never before spent very much on our bird baths, we could always get a new one in the spring.  Not so this time… To be sure that our newest and most luxurious bird bath can be enjoyed for many years to come, we decided to have a Custom Bird Bath Cover made.  The custom cover will protect the bird bath throughout the winter months, and we won’t have to worry about moving it to a safer location (it’s very heavy).  Meanwhile, our winter bird friends can enjoy our small heated bird bath, and then in the spring, we can unveil the mother of all bird baths again for the warmer weather.

Mower Covers – Taking Care of Your Tools


Mower Cover

With the end of summer coming, there are many fun things that I will miss – a few things that I won’t miss. Cutting grass has to be one of my least favorite things to do. It is completely unavoidable, though. With fall and winter comes less frequent mows so a mower cover is a must have accessory! Whether you have a traditional push mower or a high-tech tractor variety, you can find the perfect cover to protect and prevent damage from sun , bad weather, dirt, birds and tree sap. Take care of your tools so that they will take care of you, making this chore as easy as possible!

Celebrate the RV’s 100th Anniversary With an RV Adventure


1917 Recreational Vehicle

The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of the Recreational Vehicle, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by taking your RV out on the road.  Go for a weekend or go for a month — it doesn’t matter because your RV is always ready for an adventure.  Do you know, though, what the average number of days per year an RV is actually out on the road?  Only 26, according to a 2005 University of Michigan study commissioned by the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).

So what happens to the RV on those remaining 339 days?  It probably stays safely in storage at an outdoor RV storage facility, or perhaps it lives in a quiet corner of a homeowner’s property.  Keeping the RV protected with RV Covers will ensure a longer life and more adventures on the road.

Will today’s version of the RV be around when Recreational Vehicles celebrate their bicentennial in 2110?  Probably not — RV innovations go into making newer and better vehicles every year — but you can be sure that RVs will continue to thrive as one of America’s favorite ways to take a holiday.

Custom Shade Cloths Cover It All!

If you are looking for a durable, easy to use, and beautiful way to provide cover around your home, you should definitely consider shade cloth. If you are not familiar with shade cloth, it is a knitted or woven material that is waterproof, fade resistant, and UV blocking. It is extremely moisture resistant and can hold up to the most extreme temperatures. It is perfect for covering playground areas, pergolas, patios, carports, entryways, gazebos, porches, dog kennels, or any other area where you want to provide a cooling and comfortable shade. Shade cloth can be easily attached to any wooden structure with screws because lock stitch construction prevents tearing or fraying when the material is cut. You can purchase any amount of fabric and trim it to fit your needs. You will not be disappointed with this shade covering.

Jet Ski Covers Now Will Ensure Summer Fun Next Year


Jet Ski Covers

The waters are getting colder as the summer season transitions into fall.  Hopping aboard that jet ski for an exciting spin in the lake is not as tempting now as it was just a few weeks ago when the temperatures were still sweltering.  It’s just about time to think ahead to winter sports and to fun-filled, snowy days — but not before you protect your summer investment with a high quality protective cover.

Jet ski covers should be constructed of fabric that provides superior protection against sun, rain, dirt, and pollutants.  If you store your jet ski outdoors throughout the year, that cover should also have rear air vents to reduce inside moisture and to keep the cover down during windy days.  It’s a good idea to keep your jet ski covered in the summer months while it’s not in use, but it’s especially vital to cover your jet ski over the long winter months when it could be exposed to snow and ice, in addition to sun, rain, and dirt.  Protecting your jet ski adequately now will pay off when summer rolls around again and the waters are warm enough to take it for a spin.

Golf Cart Covers Are A Great Gift Idea


Golf Cart Cover

My husband loves to golf and I have found the perfect accessory for his birthday gift (shhhh…don’t tell him). Golf cart covers are a wise investment for any golfer. They protect the inside of the car during sudden downpours, keeping you dry and warm. Available in various styles and sizes, you can cover the entire cart (including clubs) or a smaller portion. If you are looking for something smaller, you can find seat covers, windshields, and protective covers – all designed exclusively to fit your golf cart. Your golfer will definitely thank you!
