    These bargain outdoor accessories will make your garden the ultimate summer hangout spot – News Post Leader - May 24, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Summer is fast approaching and temperatures have started to rocket, resulting in the UK recently seeing the hottest day of the year.

    Many of us have been on a DIY kick with so much time spent at home. But, now that fences have been painted, lawns have been trimmed and patios have been immaculately pressure-washed, it's time to go one step further and turn your garden into an unbeatable summer paradise.

    Here are the best value garden features that will really put the cherry on top of the cake.

    Fairy lights

    For only 9.99, Lidls Melinera LED Fairy Lights create the ideal relaxing atmosphere in your garden and will make your space perfect for al fresco dining this summer.

    The pretty lanterns come in white or multi-coloured versions.

    Hammock

    Made with soft fabric for your utmost comfort, as well as a super-sturdy steel frame which allows it to be kept outdoors, this 60 hammock will bring added style to any garden.

    The cloth can be removed for washing, and allows you to keep it safe in the winter months, while the frame can be easily disassembled in minutes.

    Swing seat

    If you are sun-shy, and burn quicker than a broken toaster, then perhaps an open hammock isn't the best choice for you. However, online gardening shop Wayfair has the solution.

    Its Swing seat is the ideal for those who want to rock back and forth in bliss, while protected from the summer rays.

    Large enough for three people to get comfortable, it offers a soft padded seat, along with the very handy tilting sunshade.

    Fire pit

    Aldis fire pit is a favourite summer buy among shoppers, and it made a return to shelves last month after proving popular the previous year.

    Part of the reason for its popularity is the price. The much-loved fire pit only costs 49.99.

    It comes in dark grey and features a geometric design as well as a cooking grate, which lets it double up as a barbecue.

    Bird Bath

    While mother nature is enjoying a holiday from pollution, busy streets and noise, as the country remains under lockdown, many people have noticed more birds appearing in the clear skies above.

    So why not make the most of this time, and see more bird life up close in your very own garden with a bird bath?

    Water feature

    What is more relaxing than the sound of flowing water?

    Inspiring Kabi Kabi street art to tell Noosa creation story – Noosa News - May 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    TIMES might be extra tough in tourism, but a stream of funds will see some colourful inspiration flow on to Hastings St to brighten up the local outlook.

    As the COVID-19 lockdowns play havoc with local visitations, Tourism Noosa has been backed by the State Government to install artwork at the Noosa Inspiration Centre to celebrate Noosa's indigenous history.

    In shades of Expo 88 when technology wowed the crowds in Brisbane, the artwork features will feature a 6.5 x 3.5 metre wall mural that will become 'alive' with the help of augmented reality technology and visitors using a custom created app.

    This will l showcase the dreamtime story of Noosa, the creation of Noosa and Kabi Kabi country.

    "In the year of indigenous tourism, we are thrilled to receive this funding which was made possible by the Gambling Fund Grant through State Government," said Tourism Noosa CEO Melanie Anderson.

    "The Noosa Inspiration Centre was refurbished in late 2019 and features the free water station from the 'O Initiative Water Fountain' which was painted by local indigenous artist Bianca Beetson, designed to celebrate Noosa's indigenous heritage via a Noosa essence water them. The new artwork which will be featured inside the centre will be designed by a young emerging Kabi Kabi artist to help build their profile while showcasing the history of the traditional owners of the Noosa region".

    MP for Noosa Sandy Bolton said the grant will provide Noosa a wonderful opportunity to continue showcasing our traditional heritage.

    "This time in such a high profile location. I look forward to meeting both the artist, and the works," Ms Bolton sid.

    An announcement on the artist will be shortly announced.

    The Noosa Inspiration Centre is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions but is looking to bounce back with the help of its dedicated band of staff and volunteers.

    Kara Walker’s Tate Modern fountain will be recycled. – Artsy - April 14, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Kara Walkers commission for Tate Moderns Turbine Hall, the massive fountain Fons Americanus (2019), will be taken apart, destroyed, and recycled for later use. The monumental sculpture was set to be exhibited through April 5th, but its display ended early when the Tate museums group closed its four branches mid-March due to COVID-19. The institutions latest Hyundai commission, Walkers fountain was critically acclaimed and seen by thousands of visitors.

    Fons Americanus was constructed with mostly recyclable materialslike reusable cork and woodin accordance with the Tates dedication to environmental sustainability. Last year, Walker told The Art Newspaper: I would hope some aspect of it would have another life. It has all the possibilities for living beyond its present [form]. Walkers previous monumental public artwork, A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby (2014), at Brooklyns Domino Sugar refinery, also ended in demolition.

    Walkers 42-foot-tall structure spiraled up from two circular pools of crystalline water. Unveiled in October during Frieze Week, the fountain pulled inspiration from the monumental Victoria Memorial fountain in front of Buckingham Palace. Though the exhibition ended prematurely, video documentation of Walkers work can be viewed on Tates website.

    City of Whitehorse offered new, fully-accessible playground – Yukon News - March 5, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    A 9,500-square-foot, fully-accessible playground could open in Shipyards Park in 2021.

    Whitehorse city council has been asked to accept the gift of the playground from the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charity.

    In a presentation March 2, Jumpstart ambassador Stephanie Dixon told council members about Jumpstarts initiative that started in 2017 to build a fully, accessible and inclusive playground in each province and territory in the country.

    Since then Jumpstart Playgrounds have been built in Charlottetown; Winnipeg; Calgary; Toronto; Prince Albert, Sask.; Surrey, B.C.; and Saint John, N.B.

    Dixon first visited the Jumpstart playground in Surrey last year.

    Everything is double wide, she said as she recalled the space available for those in wheelchairs to maneuver where they want to go.

    For those with hearing devices who cant normally use a metal slide due to issues with static electricity theres roller slides that eliminate static.

    For those who on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing issues or who may just simply get overwhelmed in larger crowds a dome was in place as a quiet place.

    Its a place where every child can participate and ensuring that happens at an early age is important, Dixon said.

    On the playground is where we develop our sense of self, she said.

    As the city works to make the community more accessible, why not start at the beginning with a playground, Dixon said, adding she hopes council members see the magnitude of what the playground would bring to Whitehorse.

    The Whitehorse playground would be located inside the skating loop at Shipyards Park. At 9,500 square feet, it would be close to the same size as the 9,859 square foot playground at Rotary Park.

    Jumpstart would design, supply and install the playground, including the rubberized surface, with the city then responsible for the ongoing maintenance. The contract between Jumpstart and the city states the city would be required to keep up maintenance for the parks 15-year life span.

    Shipyards Park was selected as it has accessible parking, an asphalt surface, washroom facilities and a water fountain. As such it is the only spot in Whitehorse that meets all the criteria for a Jumpstart playground.

    As Landon Kulych, the citys parks and community development manager, said there is also staff on hand at Shipyards Park each day, which means there will be more eyes on the playground. He also said the parks location inside the skating loop means it will not hinder events set to happen at the park.

    While council members were clear in their gratitude for the $1 million playground, Coun. Laura Cabott also raised questions about the maintenance costs stating her desire to ensure the city is ready to take it on.

    City manager Linda Rapp said the costs would be absorbed into the overall operating budget for parks while Jumpstart associate vice president Marco Di Buono said most of the equipment installed into the playground come with a 15-to-20-year warranty. The equipment is also not overly engineered, he said, making it fairly simple to fix when there are issues.

    Whitehorse city council will vote March 9 on whether to sign off on the agreement for the playground.

    If the agreement is signed, construction of the new playground would begin this year with the finishing touches being put in place in the spring of 2021. It would then be open to the public.

    How to Install a Fountain | HowStuffWorks - March 2, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Is there anything more relaxing than the quiet, steady burble of flowing water? Large or small, indoors or out, a fountain adds grace, beauty and serenity to almost any setting. It can also be a surprisingly low-cost home improvement.

    Installing a fountain can involve as much or as little work as you want. You can work from a kit that assembles all the components for you (although you'll lose some flexibility in terms of design). Or, once you understand how the different components fit together, you can construct your own fountain from available materials -- including the earth in your backyard.

    But first things first: you should know what you're getting into. Different fountains work best in different places -- tables, walls, floors, patios, gardens. No amount of tinkering will make your table strong enough to support a floor fountain, or keep the end result from looking awkward as well as unstable. And no table fountain will look anything but diminutive if you install it on a floor. Look around to find a fountain in the appropriate scale for your setting. Think about materials -- stone, slate, bamboo, granite -- that will coordinate with the rest of your decor.

    As you choose the location for your fountain, keep in mind that a fountain needs a power source. Some outdoor fountains have solar panels, but the rest will need to be within reach of electricity. Outdoor fountains also need seasonal maintenance, so make sure you choose a relatively accessible spot.

    This article explores the different types of fountains in more detail. We'll also look at the plans and tools you should have on hand before you delve into the installation process.

    Why a Proposal to Require Schools to Test Their Drinking Water for Lead Crumbled in Olympia – Centralia Chronicle - March 1, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Not long ago, Washington lawmakers seemed ready to require public and private schools to test their drinking water for lead.

    Since then, a lot has changed. The bill asked for less. A key advocacy group dropped its support. As of Friday, the measure appeared dead in the Senate.

    What happened? Schools, both public and private, came out in opposition of the measure, lawmakers weakened the proposal and it failed to clear a key legislative deadline.

    To Heidi Speight, who works in transportation policy, it was disappointing to watch. The initial bill, she said, would have been a fitting tribute to her late husband.

    Bruce Speight, former executive director of the advocacy group Environment Washington, spent years lobbying state lawmakers to pass such a mandate. But he died in September, before state Rep. Gerry Pollet, D-Seattle, refiled legislation this year to require water quality tests in schools.

    "Bruce's name has been on this from the beginning, and (it's) a really beautiful way to honor him," Speight said of House Bill 1860, known as the Bruce Speight Act.

    Although the measure never got a hearing last year, it appeared to have momentum this year: HB 1860 won unanimous votes in the House education and budget committees. And all 98 state representatives voted in support of the bill last month.

    But after public and private schools came out against the measure -- partly because they viewed it as an unfunded mandate -- lawmakers removed much of the teeth in the original proposal. The threshold for when schools had to act on elevated levels of lead got looser, and schools would be exempt from making any fixes unless and until they received money from the state to pay for remediation.

    Those changes prompted the Environment Washington Research & Policy Center to withdraw its support of the bill.

    "Safe drinking water shouldn't be optional," said Pam Clough, interim director of the advocacy group, which initially supported HB 1860 but reversed course after lawmakers weakened the proposal.

    "We don't make fire codes or building safety codes optional" for schools, Clough added. "We do advocate for more state and federal funding, but if we wait for that first, we may be waiting too long to fix this critical issue."

    The changes disappointed Heidi Speight.

    "It's really sad to see legislators wringing their hands over the opportunity to protect children in their (legislative) district," she said, "and then try to weaken standards below what medical professionals recommend."

    Commonly found in old paint and plumbing, lead is poisonous to everyone, but poses a greater risk to children, whose bodies more readily absorb the heavy metal. Exposure to lead can cause learning disabilities and behavioral problems, and in elevated cases, lead can damage the kidneys, blood and nervous system.

    Currently, Washington doesn't require schools to test their drinking water for lead or any other contaminant. But two years of voluntary testing at 199 elementary schools across the state revealed that 97% of schools had at least one water source with levels of lead above one part per billion.

    About 61% of the total fixtures tested at or above one part per billion, a threshold recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    HB 1860 would have required all public and private schools to test every outlet used for drinking water or cooking at facilities built before 2000. Schools would have to close access to any outlet with lead levels at or above five parts per billion and notify the state about the test results within 24 hours.

    Schools then would have 30 days to either permanently shut off the water source, provide an alternative source of safe water or install a certified filter.

    While the state would have reimbursed schools for the costs of the water quality tests, it would not have provided funding for any remediation of water sources that exceeded the new threshold.

    Lance Goodpaster, superintendent of Franklin Pierce Schools south of Tacoma, testified against HB 1860.

    "We certainly care about the water our children are drinking at school," Goodpaster said in an email, adding that his school district conducts its own testing. He suggested schools should be held to a looser standard -- 15 parts per billion -- set by the federal Environmental Protection Agency.

    The bill, he added, "imposed new costs that the Legislature did not fund."

    Suzie Hanson, executive director of the Washington Federation of Independent Schools, said her group opposed the measure because legislators developed it without the input of private schools.

    "It seems that private schools were put into the bill as an afterthought," Hanson said. "Assumptions are being made that there is a problem with lead in private school facilities. This is speculative."

    She also suggested the proposal did not clarify which state agency would be responsible for oversight of private schools.

    Following that opposition, lawmakers changed HB 1860 to exempt schools from remediation if they don't receive a state or federal grant to pay for it. The revised legislation also specifically said schools "may not" conduct remediation for any remediation costing above $2,000 per building.

    Lawmakers also decided to loosen the threshold for when schools needed to take action -- from five parts per billion to nine parts per billion. And the Washington State Department of Health would not be able to revisit that standard until 2030.

    Now, none of that appears likely to happen. The Senate Education Committee needed to vote on HB 1860 by Friday to keep it alive during this year's short legislative session, but it didn't.

    And although any policy idea can reemerge before lawmakers adjourn, it's unclear whether the Bruce Speight Act will survive as an amendment to another bill or the state budget.

    The ‘crown jewel’ of Wilder would be a secret no longer with these ambitious plans – Soapbox Cincinnati - March 1, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Fredericks Landing in Wilder has a long history, going back to its construction by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1965. Back then, it was designed as a flood zone to hold back the waters of the Licking and Ohio rivers.

    Its been a park for decades with a playground,boat launch, picnic tables, and a shelter. The federal government transferred ownership of the land to Wilder, a city of 3,000 people, in 2004.

    City officials now have ambitious plans for Fredericks Landing envisioning it as a focal point of the citys redevelopment. High on the priority list is a $1.4 million amphitheaterthat would be the scene of concerts and other events to bring people to the park.

    Fredericks Landing is really the crown jewel of Wilder, sayscity administrator Terry Vance. Its a hidden secret for most people unless you boat.

    The project received a big boost recently with the award of a $250,000 state grant. The Land and Water Conservation Fund grant provides money to help construct the new community amphitheater as well as the surrounding improvements that need to be made, such as enhancementsto parking, sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, and underground utilities to support the new structure.

    In 2018, Wilder officials surveyed residents and had a comprehensive plan drafted that was called Growing Wilder: Envisioning Tomorrow. City leaders saw a need to attract new residents and businesses to the city and encourage those already there to stay.

    The plan prioritizes land use that encourages outdoor recreation and community gatherings over theproliferation of businesses such as convenience stores and bank branches.

    Included in the plan is a dining establishment that would overlook Fredericks Landing and the Licking River and a splash park.

    The state grant will provide the impetus to move forward on the project because the money must be used by the end of 2022, according to Vance.

    Wilders grant was the largest of four made in Northern Kentucky from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The others were:

    The 2020 Colorado Garden and Home Show Focuses on Healing and Hope – 5280 | The Denver Magazine - February 20, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    An attendee of last year's Garden and Home Show. Courtesy of Colorado Garden Foundation

    The annual show, which takes place February 22 to March 1, will distribute over a half-million dollars in grant funding to horticulture therapy programs throughout the state.

    February is a welcome time to see greenand thats what youll get as you walk into the Colorado Convention Center from February 22 to March 1 during the annual Colorado Garden and Home Show. In fact, youll see every color of the rainbow (and more) thanks to the staggering number of flowers (10,000) spread throughout the complex. But sight isnt the only sense visitors can use to enjoy the acres of plants.

    Thats because horticulture therapy, and more specifically sensory gardens are taking center stage at this years event. This genre, now relatively popular in the gardening and landscaping industry, essentially refers to gardens that urge visitors to engage with all their senses. Not only is smelling, hearing, touching, and tasting plant life fun, but it can be therapeutic as well.

    As part of its grant program, the Colorado Garden Foundation will award a total of $543,000 to these local nonprofits, which use horticulture as a means to promote healing, learning, and in some cases, hope.

    Anchor Center for Blind Children: Horticulture Therapy ProgramAnchor Center will receive a $9,000 grant to renovate their outdoor classroom and continue their compost services, which they use to teach students about the plant life cycle and environmental sustainability.

    Horticulture has become central to the curriculum at this Stapleton institution, which has been around for almost four decades. The center, which provides education and therapy to children from infancy to age five who live with visual impairments, depends on its outdoor spaces for horticulture therapy. One of those spaces they call the pizza garden, where the youngsters can improve their motor skills by helping plant the seeds of basil and tomato plants. As they grow, the students can smell and feel the plants, until finally they become toppings on handmade pizzas. The process not only engages the childrens senses, but also helps them make connections from seed to plant, to a delicious meal.

    The center also has a bountiful sunflower patch, where children plant seeds and later feel the flowers stalks grow until the petals are barely reachable above their heads. It can be really impactful for them to see the flowers grow even taller than they are, says Molly Jenkins, one of Anchors managers.

    Such experiences are vital for the 100-plus students who are involved with the Anchor Center per year. What we know from research is that up to 90 percent of early learning takes place through incidental visual observation, Jenkins says. So for these kids, the lessons, activities, and skills they learn at the Anchor Center can help close the gap that could otherwise appear between them and their peers.

    Norwood Public Schools: Outdoor EducationNorwood Public Schools will receive a $15,000 grant to add on to their outdoor classroom area.

    Three years ago, teachers within the Norwood Public Schools District installed a hoop housea greenhouse-like structureto become part of their outdoor education curriculum for high schoolers. Now, with the grant they received from the Colorado Garden Foundation, they can install irrigation and build plant beds. Students who take the schools agriculture course, now in its second year, will then be able to design and create additions to the existing hoop house, incorporating other disciplines such as woodwork and welding for a fountain or water feature.

    The idea is for the program to be interdisciplinary, incorporating not only trade skills like those listed above, but also to help students who are interested in agriculture understand the value of their math, bio, or writing classes. Science teacher Catherine Kolbet used two students as examples: Both wanted to become ranchers, and thanks to the agriculture curriculum, were able to grasp how algebra would play into accounting their property and livestock and how grammar could strengthen their correspondence with stakeholders.

    We appreciate that the foundation was willing to take the risk, Kolbet says. Now were just waiting for the ground to thaw to get started.

    Denver Art Museum: Sensory Garden and CourtyardThe DAM will receive a $50,000 grant to complete its sensory garden and courtyard, including adding an additional terrace.

    Prescribing art as medicine is being seriously considered in the United Kingdom, Canada, and elsewhere. Though the trend has yet to gain traction here in the U.S., its the premise behind the Denver Art Museums next big project: a sensory garden and courtyard. The idea is to create a space that fosters community creativity by bringing together people, plants, and art, says Heather Nielsen, the museums director of learning and community engagement.

    Designed by Didier Design Studiothe firm responsible for the steppe garden, sensory garden, and all-American selections garden at Denver Botanic Gardensthe courtyard will ultimately serve as both an aesthetic outdoor setting and an education space. For example, an Art and About tour for visitors with dementia or Alzheimers could be one likely program.

    Though the museums new digs are set to open June 6, the installation of the sensory courtyard will be ongoing into the fall. The plan is to incorporate community input and then host planting days, so that visitors can play a role in the creative process.

    Craig Hospital: Garden Repairs and ImprovementsCraig Hospital will receive a $3,750 grant to replace a flagstone pathway and update its existing garden spaces.

    When Craig Hospitals horticulture therapy program was just a seedling back in 1982, the program largely focused on rehabilitating and providing adaptive equipment to recovering farmers, gardeners, and ranchers. Since then, under the leadership of coordinator Susie Hall, who joined the team in 1994, the program has expanded to offer a mix of physical and mental therapy to patients who are recovering from spinal cord and brain injuries.

    By partnering with the hospitals physical and speech therapists, the horticulture team works toward goals through gardening. Take, for example, a recent patient recovering from a traumatic brain injury who is able to stand longer working in the greenhouse than in the treatment center. Or patients who can practice memory skills and problem-solving in a more bucolic setting than a hospital room. Hall says some patients have sent her thank you notes, claiming they dont know what they would have done without the horticulture program at Craig.

    Its a way to connect people with plants, Hall says. For some, that may mean diving back into their previous activities involving gardening or being in nature. For others, its an introduction to a new leisure activity. The form of therapy has taken off globally; Hall says shes seen representatives from Japan, Hong Kong, Norway, Australia, and elsewhere at horticulture therapy conferences.

    It doesnt end thereBeyond the grant recipients, the Colorado Garden and Home Show has, for the past quarter century, selected a community group to box up a majority of the flowers and take them to local nursing homes (this year itll be a local junior football team). It costs us about $1,500 to give our flowers away, says Jim Fricke, Colorado Garden Foundation executive director. But we think its money well spent. Because when they walk into the nursing homes, they say the look on residents faces is amazing.

    If you go: The Colorado Garden and Home Show takes place February 22 to March 1 at the Colorado Convention Center. Tickets are available online.

    ‘Queen of the Hills’ coming to Spearfish | Local News – Black Hills Pioneer - February 12, 2020 by Mr HomeBuilder

    SPEARFISH Local artist Tony Chytka pitched his idea for a new statue depicting the Queen of the Hills at Mondays Spearfish City Council meeting.

    Spearfish was always known as The Queen City of the Hills, Chytka said. The ending piece would be a life-size fountain (that) depicts the Queen of the Hills.

    Chytka explained that he wanted the piece to capture some of the imagery from the Passion Play.

    She is in her toga wardrobe, kind of carrying back to the Passion Play and what the passion play represented to Spearfish, he said. Shed be dropping water from the palm of her hand in the life-size piece, it would go into a pool in her apron, then a water would fall with the fish coming up out of the water.

    Chytka said he would fund the project by selling limited edition, scale-sized models of the statue for $750 as well as a 28-inch functioning model for $5,500. Half the proceeds from the sales would be applied to the creation of the full-sized statue. He said he expected the final life-size bronze to be ready to install sometime in the summer of 2021.

    The council unanimously voted to approve the project and said the city would work with Chytka to find a suitable place for the fountain statue.
