Best Coffee Maker Review 2020

There's something no home should be without, and that's a GREAT coffee maker. I've tried lots of different coffee makers, from regular, inexpensive drip coffee makers to those pod kinds, but none of them made great coffee. So, I started looking around for a really good coffee maker, and read the reviews. I've been really, really happy about the one I finally picked. I've been using it for over a year, and I can't say enough good things about it. If you're a "caffeine achiever" like I am, you're definitely going to want to check out this review.

Great Hedge Trimmer!

Shindaiwa makes trimming hedges easier.

A while back, I made a video showing how I turned my yard from basic to professionally landscaped on a budget. Basically, I hired a landscape architect to draw a landscape plan, then I found a wholesale nursery and put the yard in myself by following the plan. A key part of the landscape plan were the hollies and hedgerows that added structure to the yard. Today, I want to talk about the great hedge trimmer I’ve found to shape those hollies and keep the hedgerows looking their best.

Repair Your Leaf Blower for FREE

Leaf Blower Stopped Working?

A hand-held, high-powered leaf blower can really help you maintain your landscape. But it's a real pain when your leaf blower stops working and needs repair, especially if you're trying to get the fall leaves up off the lawn, out of your yard, and out to the street for pick up. When my leaf blower stopped working last fall, I was thinking it was going to cost me at least $100 plus all the time finding a repair shop and waiting to get it fixed. Luckily, I found a great online resource that helped me get my gas-powered leaf blower back up and running in about 5 minutes for nothing.
