Weeds are the bane of any garden. They are so easy to grow and spread, and are extremely hardy. In fact, weeds are more or less useless, being more of a curse on the ground than anything else. However, just like life, we have to contend with the likes of weeds in order to make sure that anything that is worth attaining such as a good and rich harvest deserves to have hard work put in. If you have a reasonably large yard that you would like to protect against weeds using the natural way, how about considering the Tertill weed-killing robot? This is like a robotic vacuum cleaner, except for the garden.

The Tertill is a solar-powered gardening robot that is ready to ship after being a successful Kickstarter project. It tips the scales at 2.5 pounds, as this disk-shaped robot will go about patrolling the garden while it intelligently identifies and whacks all unwanted plants in the vicinity. How does it do so? Magic is not involved, but technology. Tertill makes use of unique design elements as well as a range of sensors in order to patrol the garden daily, as it goes about avoiding plants and obstacles, while looking for weeds to eliminate.

It uses this algorithm to figure out which are weeds and which are your precious plants: weeds are short, plants are tall. Any plant that is tall enough to touch the front of Tertill’s shell will then activate a sensor which will see the robot turn away. If a plant happens to be short enough to pass under the shell, then it will activate a different sensor by turning on the weed cutter. Fret not though, for your young seedlings, there will be protective collars included with each purchase that you can place around short plants and seedlings so that Tertill will avoid them until they are tall enough.

A spinning string trimmer will be in charge of all weed cutting activities, and since it looks for weeds each day, you can be sure that there will be no long weed problems to worry about. Since it is 100 percent solar-powered, this Bluetooth-connected robot will get to work without you worrying about charging it up.

The VonHaus Hedge Trimmer cuts down the beauty of nature Thu, 11 May 2017 18:30:59 +0000 Telescoping Hedge Trimmer

You can tell it’s springtime because the birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, and Mother Nature is on steroids. You can mow the grass in the morning and by midday the lawn will have a five o’ clock shadow. We only have so much energy to put into maintaining our home, and the best anyone could hope for is to stay on top of the dishes in the sink, take out the trash, and prevent the green areas around the exterior from becoming a jungle.

When you do get a moment to give your yard a little TLC, you want to make it quick, and with as little fuss as possible. If you have hedges that need trimming and they haven’t gotten any attention for a while, you’ll either want to approach that with a ladder, chain saw, and a death wish or the Von Haus Cordless Electric Hedge Trimmer. It has a 1.5ah Li-Ion Battery to give you 50 minutes of uninterrupted cutting, extends up to 8.7′, and will cut through anything that is up to 0.59” thick.

There are 6 different positions you can put the head in for precise horizontal or vertical cutting. There’s also a two-stage safety trigger so you can’t injure yourself, unless you’re really, really trying. This will cost you $119.99, and will hopefully be bought alongside some protective face gear so you’re not chancing a stick through the eye.

Available for purchase on Amazon

Seventy2 is a fully integrated survival system Fri, 04 Nov 2016 19:00:53 +0000 seventy2-bagIt is said that the first 72 hours are the most important in any emergency, and the person who is far better equipped in the event of a disaster (be it an earthquake, a tsunami, or a typhoon, or anything else that you can think of) would have a higher chance of survival, at least being able to hold out until the search and rescue team arrives. Most of us do not carry a bug out bag, or a survival kit wherever we go because we think that it will not happen to us, but this is exactly why we should: as disasters rarely make an announcement prior to their arrival. Uncharted Supply Co. is a lifestyle company that has just unveiled the aptly named Seventy2.

The Seventy2 has been touted to be the first fully integrated survival system that has been specially designed to safely navigate the first 72-hours of any emergency. It was developed with the assistance of world-class adventurers, first responders, medical experts and survival specialists, delivering peace of mind with all of the necessary equipment as well as instructions so that you can just about face any situation. The instructions there are all easy to understand and follow, even if you have never handled any of the equipment included before.

Far more than just the LifeStraw, the Seventy2 comes will tip the scales at less than 12lbs., as it arrives chock-full of survival goodies within. It will arrive packed with 30 high-quality products and tools that have been specially designed to work in tandem, ranging from a crank battery charger that also functions as a flashlight all the way to carefully selected supplies so that you remain hydrated, warm and fed just in case you are trapped somewhere. All of the products will be neatly stashed away in their respective compartments, categorized by need with clear instructions to guide even the novice user through any challenge. Flashlight mounts that offer hands-free lighting, reflective logos for increased night safety, a removable internal frame with additional straps to double carrying capacity, and a HDPE plastic exoskeleton that can be used as snowshoes or splints, are certainly items we can all do with in an emergency. It will not come cheap at $349.99 a pop though, but when you’re fighting for a chance to survive, that is pretty cheap.

Leaf Collecting Lawn Sweeper makes chores a whole lot easier Tue, 06 Sep 2016 12:00:04 +0000 leaf-collecting-sweeperDifferent seasons bring about different moods for each of us, but there are some times when it is easier to get about in the summer or in the winter, since there are no leaves to clear from your lawn. Autumn is as pretty as it gets, but oh! The chore of cleaning up leaves in your yard is a thought that no one would want to entertain willingly, although it needs to be done. A leaf blower is useful to help ‘herd’ all of your leaves in one place, but what about collecting all those leaves into a bag? Perhaps the $99.95 Leaf Collecting Lawn Sweeper would be able to do a better job while you attend to other more important things in life.

The Leaf Collecting Lawn Sweeper is a push sweeper which quickly collects fallen leaves on your lawn and driveway, all without requiring you to go through backbreaking raking and uncomfortable stooping. The sweeper’s flexible plastic combs will spin rapidly as you push it, allowing it to grab leaves, grass clippings, pine needles and other small detritus, before depositing them into the collection hopper. It has 10″-diameter plastic wheels that roll effortlessly on grass or concrete, while you can adjust the height of the combs with a simple twist of a knob. Some assembly is required, like the Avengers, but it is definitely well worth the effort.

BBQ Toolbox is now a reality Sun, 28 Aug 2016 12:00:12 +0000 bbq-toolboxIf you love to spend the evening in the outdoors or in your backyard (front yard will do as well) for a BBQ session with family and friends, surely the BBQ grills is one indispensable piece of equipment that you should look out for. A decent BBQ grill is definitely something to have beforehand, but what was available for pre-order not too long ago is now reality — behold, the £69.99 BBQ Toolbox!

Small enough to tote with you wherever you go, the BBQ Toolbox certainly lives up to its name. It arrives in a compact and portable red colored toolbox shape, where you can then lay it on the ground before you fold it out to begin your BBQ sessions. Opening it will definitely excite whichever assigned chef there is for the night, as it reveals a slew of handy BBQ features, accompanied by a generously-sized stainless steel grill. Not only that, the BBQ Toolbox has been ruggedly built, where it has carrying handles that flip down in order to transform into sturdy legs. There is also a warming rack and storage tray for sauces and buns, and no longer do you need to fall back on those dreadful disposable barbecues out there.

Flamingo Watering Can is pretty in pink Fri, 19 Aug 2016 21:00:15 +0000 flamingo-watering-canFlamingos are pretty cool — they can even maintain their balance in the water on soft ground with a single leg, without having to teeter totter from one side to another. Not only that, they are cute and have been the object of numerous cartoony designs from time to time. How about injecting a little bit of flamingo goodness into your gardening arsenal with the £9.99 Flamingo Watering Can? Surely the signature pink color is set to make your eyes zoom in on it whenever you look for a watering can.

It is also surprisingly spacious as it has more than enough space within to hold 1.5 liters of water, and it would certainly make taking care of plants a whole lot more fun. Of course, if you do not have a green thumb and yet would like to obtain the Flamingo Watering Can for yourself, you can always use it as a cocktail dispenser — it works the same. Definitely more versatile than the Chuppon Self Watering Animal Planter, not to mention adorable.

Windcatcher AirPad 2+ lets you relax in style Thu, 04 Aug 2016 15:08:41 +0000 windcatcher-airpad2When the name Windcatcher AirPad 2+ crops up, don’t think that this is some sort of new device from Cupertino that carries the famous Apple logo. No sir, this is actually a $99.99 indoor/outdoor inflatable mattress substitute that will feature a one-way valve which takes mere seconds to inflate, all without having to go through the hassle of pumping or looking for some sort of power outlet. It is also a peach to set up — just strap and snap, and you can then convert it into a seat in the blink of an eye.

Boasting of a 4″ thick quilted support system while measuring 74″ long x 20″ wide, the one-way valve inflates in a matter of seconds sans pumping or power as mentioned. After inflation of the Windcatcher AirPad 2+, lying down on it comes across naturally, not because you’re dog tired and out of breath, but because it looks so inviting. To make matters all the more convenient, it comes with a built-in carrying case, and the materials used are blue and dark grey 75D ripstop polyester laminated with TPU. Just make sure that it sees action in non-freezing conditions only.

300 Lumens Mosquito Repelling Lantern keeps you safe and sound from them mozzies Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:00:50 +0000 300lumens-mozzie-lanternStaying cooped up at home all day long is not healthy at all. In fact, you might want to choose to step out and enjoy the breeze from the outside once in a while, and soak in nature’s abundance so that your internal man can recharge. However, if you were to sit on the patio at dusk while enjoying your favorite cup of coffee, then you might also end up being a feast for mosquitoes. This can be avoided with the $59.95 300 Lumens Mosquito Repelling Lantern — which not only provides light, but also ensures that them blood sucking pests won’t be able to extract a drop of plasma from you.

The 300 Lumens Mosquito Repelling Lantern, as its name suggests, produces 300 lumens of light and uses d-cis/trans allethrin, which is a repellent field-tested by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. This repellent has been proven to be effective in tests conducted by eight leading entomologists to repel up to 96% of mosquitoes, as it relies on a 21/2″ x 11/2″ mat that is saturated with permethrin. Permethrin is a synthetic repellent that made from a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, where a butane-fueled heater vaporizes the repellent so that you end up in a 225′ sq. safe zone that is unbearable for mosquitoes and other biting insects. There will be eight LEDs within the lantern that produces an efficient glow for up to 50 hours with a quartet of light settings; and it can be used with/without mosquito repellant. Definitely an improvement over other lanterns!

One-Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap keeps them nasty mozzies away Sun, 24 Jul 2016 12:00:23 +0000 one-acre-mozzie-trapIf there is one particular animal or lifeform that should not have survived the great flood on Noah’s Ark, it should have been the mosquito. Wait a minute, make that two — the cockroach can also be extinct for all I care. Unfortunately, both pests are still around to this day and flourishing, with the mosquito being a vector for deadly viruses like the Zika virus as well as spreading malaria and dengue fever. Well, if you love to spend the cool evenings on the outside without being a buffet spread for mosquitoes, then the $199.95 One-Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap makes plenty of sense.

From its name alone, you know more or less the area in which it is able to cover, as opposed to the Dusk-Activated Half Acre Mosquito Trap. This particular trap will attract and kill mosquitoes in yards up to one acre without the use of harmful chemicals. How does it do so? Well, it will mimic the natural conditions of human habitation by emitting heat and odorless carbon dioxide, which is similar to the gas humans expel during respiration, as well as light to lure mosquitoes. Carbon dioxide will be generated when ultraviolet rays from two fluorescent bulbs react with a titanium dioxide coating inside the trap, and as the mosquitoes are drawn inside the device, there is an an integrated fan that will trap the insects and send them to a removable net — resulting in their eventual death due to dehydration.

Instant Wooden Deck Table lets you set up a picnic, anytime, anywhere Mon, 18 Jul 2016 17:00:57 +0000 instant-wooden-table-deckWhile you might have decked out your home with the most exquisite looking pieces of furniture, including the Video Game Coffee Table, you might want to spare a thought for the patio behind your home, or the verandah that sits in front. While there are many different kinds of materials from which one is able to choose from, wood tends to be one of the better choices when it comes to giving a warm feel and look to any home. Having said that, if you like to have a wooden table anytime, anyplace, bringing a full fledged one with you is simply far from practical. You would have better luck with the $79.95 Instant Wooden Deck Table though.

This happens to be a wooden table that instantly mounts over a deck or balcony railing, where it can then provide a platform for al fresco dining, a party’s drink station, or a even card game. It is made from naturally water-resistant acacia and stained to impart a golden luster to the wood. This particular table can unfold itself to form a 23 1/2″-wide x 17 1/2″-deep adjustable platform, as it hangs between 3″ and 8″ below a railing’s top. The table‘s 16 slats will be spaced 1/8″ apart, and yet sports adequate room for champagne flutes to be placed without having to suffer from any kind of wobbling. It has a rear frame that forms twin wooden hooks which are 26 1/2″ apart, each of which can fit over a railing from 2″ to 10″ wide while its lower half rests against a balcony’s wall or uprights, or a deck’s vertical posts.
