For bird watchers, bird enthusiasts, or just average homeowners, bird baths and feeders provide a relaxing glimpse into one of nature’s most tranquil creatures.

In some parts of the country, a nectar feeder can gain the attention of wondrous hummingbirds, who seem to be able to stop in midair. Or you bird bath can attract delightful wrens that frolic as they bathe.
Nothing says “lazy summer days” like a hammock swinging between two trees. Perhaps you’ve got a book in your hands, a cool glass of lemonade, or just sleepily resting on a warm evening. In any case, a hammock is a great investment for any home, and can provide hours of relaxation for any weary homeowner. All that’s required is minimal effort in terms of installation, and then a lifetime of comfort.

Plastic climbers hold a special place in every child’s heart. From one’s earliest memories of going down a little slide or graduating to an earth dome, climbers are a great way for kids to have fun and use those growing muscles. It’s a social activity as well, either taking turns or playing together.
