It's time for a home tech make over. No gimmicks

A recent Fortune article made the case that the “smart home” is, in fact, stupid. It was a funny headline, but it appeals to a broader sense among most people that the inexorable rise of technology isn’t always particularly useful. Do we really need a smart toaster in the kitchen? Is it wise to have showers that we can talk do? Do our fridges the ability to do our grocery shopping for us?

The level of technology we want in our homes is a personal decision. Each of us will have a different threshold for the level of tech-related blunders that they are willing to accept. With that said, technology can also be a force for good, even if you’re not a particularly tech-savvy person.

It’s time for a home tech makeover. Here’s how to get the best from your technology to make life easier. No gimmicks.

Boost Your Connection Speed

There’s nothing more annoying than a slow connection to the internet. And when you’ve got four or five people trying to download videos at the same time, you soon notice if your provider isn’t giving you the service you paid for.

The good news is that you can check your connection speed. A service by i3Broadband allows you to test how fast you can download online. You can then compare this speed to that advertised by your provider to see if they actually do match up.

Get An Assistant

One of the fastest-growing tech market segments today is the home assistant. Amazon, Google, and Apple all have viable products in this space.

The benefits of a home assistant are many. You can get them to remind you about stuff, ask them questions, get them to tell you recipes, and a whole host of other beneficial things.
But what’s so exciting about these home assistant products is that they are improving all the time. The value you get today isn’t the value that you’ll get tomorrow. Over time, these systems will continue to improve. And because all of the technology is contained within the cloud, there’s no need to go out and buy new software. You just wait for updates and get a better service with each round.

Automate The Boring Stuff

Perhaps the best implementation of home automation so far is the automation of the stuff that nobody wants to do. At the moment, automation is limited to things that don’t require much manual dexterity to operate. For instance, light switches, door locks, and alarms. These can all be controlled electronically. But not having to fumble around for keys or tap in codes to set alarms can be a great help, especially if you have a busy family life.

Just as with home assistants, home automation is a technology that is only just getting started. Already there are lights and speakers on the market which will adjust to your mood and preferences. And we’re likely to see this accelerate, especially when robots become dextrous enough to begin performing more complex tasks. Who wants to do the dishes anyway?

Self Care: an opportnity for the family



Living with a chronic illness can be an isolating feeling. You will undoubtedly need to overcome challenges, as well as accept and adapt to new realities. Mental health disorders can be considered chronic conditions and affect tens of millions of people each year, including children.

When an individual is impacted by mental illness the people closest to them in life are as well. But support from family and loved ones is a crucial part of restoring and maintaining good mental health. Making self-care a priority in your family’s routine can strengthen and sustain the entire family’s well-being.

Luckily, there are a number of ways that the entire family can take part in self-care:
Educate each other.
In many cases, family members and other close loved ones are the first to recognize changes in each other’s mood and behavior. When there is a complete understanding of the struggles that someone is facing, there is less of an opportunity for feelings of isolation and misinterpretation of actions and attitudes. Empower the whole family to use education to create an environment of camaraderie. You may not know where to start - and that’s okay! There are free, family-friendly mental health materials that easily introduce information and share personal experiences of others who have also been affected by mental health conditions. It’s comforting to know others are out there and that they have made it through this journey.

Embrace expressive outlets.
There can be a point where words will not suffice. Sometimes feelings are so intense or unfamiliar that we have a hard time explaining them. Encouraging your family to find a creative outlet to channel their feelings will reduce the risk of internalizing intense emotions. Whether each of you keeps a journal, creates music, or makes art through drawing or painting - you will give voice to experiences and feelings not easily expressed through spoken word. Creative outlets provide safe and productive ways to de-stress and manage emotions.

Remedy your mind with exercise.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness affirms that family has a big influence on how we perceive exercise and mental health: “Exercising as a family not only gets the entire family moving to reap the benefits of exercise but also models healthy beliefs about physical activity and improves family relationships.” There’s no need to be a family of star athletes to begin and enjoy exercising. Nor do you need to have hours on end of spare time to get moving. Building physical activity into your family’s routine can be as simple as a walk or bike ride around the neighborhood, or, as entertaining as having a dance party or teaming up for a local “fun run” with paint or bounce house themes. When enticing, exercise has the power to enhance mood and energy, combat stress, increase self-esteem, and improve social relationships.

Recovery is a family effort. It takes a lot of energy from all members even if you don’t realize it at first. Taking care of your mind and body will only make you more energized and ready to face whatever tasks the day brings. A strong family unit is essential, work together and be a support system.

How to plan for unexpected future


There are many things in life that you will have absolutely no control over, and this is understandably rather frustrating and even exasperating at times because you will often feel helpless in certain situations, and no one likes to feel that way. But although this can get you down, it's important to take your attention away from that and instead focus your energy on the things you can control.

When thinking about the future, there are most likely a million and one thoughts that race through your mind at the same time, and that's because there are so many paths and possibilities and opportunities out there that you can't just focus on one thing at a time. While a lot of things will feel out of your hands, there are a few very important areas of your life that you need to think about so that you're able to plan for the unexpected future in your own way. Remember that you're your own individual, and you may want to go in a direction that your friends don't, and that's okay. We're all different, and you should never feel as if you need to conform and fit in. Just embrace being you, and have fun while doing so.

The health
One of the most important things in your life, is making sure that you look after your health the way that you should so that you can live a long and happy life. This starts from very early on when you're young, but as you grow up and become an adult, you soon realise just how much more important your health seems because you're constantly being made aware of new illnesses and issues that happen, especially if you're not being careful and responsible. It doesn't have to be a complicated thing though, the most basic rule is to consume goodness. This means minerals, vitamins, and nutrients that your body needs. Then pair that up with some regular exercise to get your heart beating and your blood pumping and you're already off to a great start.

The career
Some people are fortunate enough to know exactly what they want to do as a career, and so they keep their head down and study in order to get the necessary grades they need to have a chance at bagging their dream job. But for others, they have absolutely no idea, or too many things at once that stops them from being able to settle. If this is you, don't worry about it. Of course, the older you get the more stressful it becomes because you will feel as though everyone is passing you by and you're still stuck not knowing what to do. But it's important that you know that there is no time limit. It's never too late to go back to school and take some courses. As long as you're happy and passionate about whatever it may be that you want to do, then there's no reason that you can't achieve it, no matter how old you are.

The finances
When it comes to your money, there are so many options that you have of ensuring you know how to manage your finances and save up along the way. You never know when an event might happen that results in you needing a large sum of money quick. You may be involved in an accident that leaves you needing medical attention, but as a result, you have fees to pay off, and sometimes if you're not able to pay, you're left with bad credit score and a whole lot of debt - something that you will very much want to avoid from happening. So you need to save up when you can so that you always have something there to tap into. You can find out more with a Health Savings Account Guide that tells you all there is to know. It's also a good idea to speak to a financial advisor as well so that you can get a professional opinion from an expert in finances.

Now you have a few things to think about, try and reflect on your life so far, and ask yourself if there's anything that you want to decide to do a little differently now. This may be to benefit you even more, or it may be because you're simply bored and feel like a change. Regardless of what the reasoning may be, you are in control of your own destiny.

36.

Today I turn 36...


36 Things I Learned By 36
1)Greys Anatomy is the greatest show ever created, and Friends is the worst. 

2)Marry your best friend because life is hard and you need someone to laugh with. 

3)A clean house is addictive, and will make you feel 10x better.

4)My emotions have nothing to do with truth. Some days I feel unloved, alone, and unworthy, but God says we are loved, cared for, and righteous. Ignore those feelings, they're lies.

5)Being home with your people is way better than going out. 

6)It gets harder to make friends the older you get, and to keep them.

7)Making more money will not make you happier. I promise.

8)Spending time with your kids is way better than doing laundry, but still do laundry because being naked is apparently frowned upon.

9) frozen beats every other kids movie ever, hands down, no argument.

10)Stop trying to make a plan, and live with purpose. Plans never work out anyway.

11)It's not about you. This one takes a long time to really sink in. We are born thinking we are the center of the universe, but we're not.

12)It's okay to be lazy. Take a break, spend your day in bed! 

13)There's never a perfect time to make big moves like buying a house, getting married, or having kids. Do it anyway. 

14)You don't have to go out and make grand gestures to love God. Right where you are, with the people you already know is right where God put you. 

15)Baby sneezes are to die for

16)Being right is a lot less important than the relationship with the person your trying to prove wrong. 

17)Date your spouse forever. Never stop dating! 

18)If you're spending all your money on yourself, you're doing it wrong. Give a little, or a lot! 

19)Take care of yourself. Even when it feels like you have no time, make your health a priority. You can't take care of other if you neglect yourself.

20)Be present. Put your phone down and enjoy the people your with. 

21)Your success and failures have nothing to do with who you are. God says you're his. 

22)Don't overthink life, just live each day as if its your last.

23)Every now and then it is good to stop and look at how children see the world. Remember how it was to be a child and look at life with a sense of wonder and adventure without any jaded opinions?

24) I am not perfect nor am I vain enough to think that I am even close to perfect. I make mistakes. I stumble. I fall. Some days I am a big bundle of mess. I am darkness and I am light. We are beautiful souls despite our faults. We are as unique as the snowflakes that fall from the sky.

25) you can not buy happiness. We’ve heard it a million times. It is not found in a box, on a shelf, online or in a store. Stuff will never fill that void. In fact it will make us feel more empty. True story.

26)Appreciate life with all its quirks and blessings. It all happens for a reason. If you don’t stop and enjoy it then at the end what was the point? Just when you think that you are getting the hang of it those ray hairs start poking up in your head. With all stages there are positive and negative. No point focusing on the bad.

27)Practice gratitude. It is one of the best ways to find contentment. Humans are often discontent. We want what we don’t have. When we stop and remember all that we do have then suddenly our way of thinking turns around. Things like health and relationships all mean so much more than material things.

28) We are taught to conform. Media is prevalent in our world. It is everywhere that we turn and we follow what we are ‘supposed to’. Go ahead and question people. Research all that you can. You may just be surprised at what you find out.

29) Sometimes you just have to lighten up. Throw caution to the wind. Be silly. Dance in your living room. Sing at the top of your lungs. Laugh really loud. I can’t imagine that anyone has regretted any of these things.

30) Stop and take the time to show others that you care. Love isn’t always enough – actions are another way to show and say thanks or proclaim love.

31) Life is short. Don’t waste time worrying about what other people think. I am not sure at what age this happens but there is a time in your life when a switch is turned on and you really start living your life how YOU want to.

32) Not everything is intentional. I used to get so disappointed with people thinking that they would intentionally hurt me. Now I know that we just all think and do things differently. Their actions were not always for the purpose of intentionally being hurtful. It is ok to let people go. Everyone comes into our life for a reason. Remember the good times.

33) Stop with the comparison game. This can be a toughie. I have some very inspirational friends that I look up to and admire. I also know that we all have our junk to contend with. Lift each other up instead of cutting each other down.

34) Be yourself. Always. Seriously. Though you may want to fit in with everyone it is much more fun to be you. The people that are right for you will stick around.

35) Slow down. Life is most enjoyed when we can stop and savour it at a leisurely pace.

36) Your past is not your future. You cannot change your past so focus on the present. We all do stupid things at one time or another. What is important is that we learn from it and move on.

Good faith and a 21st century lifestyle


You could say it isn’t cool to have faith in 2018. Yes, millions of people around the world believe in Jesus and God, but they aren’t religious. And, even the most ardent followers find it challenging to blend their beliefs and a 21st-century lifestyle. As embarrassing as it sounds, there is too much to do on a daily basis to remember God thoroughly. So, it isn’t a surprise that some people find themselves lost between modern society and religion. But, remember that God's fought this battle before and won many times.

Here are the reasons why.

Faith Is Fluid

Back in the day, people went to church because it was a sign of their community. As much as worship, they wanted to talk and gossip and interact with their friends. Plus, it was a way to bring the family closer together. Rightly or wrongly, the same sense of community doesn’t exist today as society has become disjointed. From a faith standpoint, this has its pros and its cons but the one advantage is that you can renew your faith from anywhere in the world. A simple prayer is enough to keep the ties taught while you find the time to visit His house. He is always listening.

God Takes A Step Back

Why doesn’t He do this and why doesn’t He do that? These are questions people ask on a regular basis. Instead, what you should be thinking about is “why haven’t I done anything to help my situation?” Yes, God sees everything and He is the ultimate puppet master yet He gave us free will for a reason. As His children, we must make our own lane in life without constantly asking for advice and approval. Once a person with faith understands this, there is no way faith and a modern lifestyle can’t mix.


But He Always Answers In Times Of Need

You are in a car accident and don’t know whether your legs will work again. Because you need to act, it’s essential to speak to a doctor and a lawyer to limit the damage and recover. See more here. However, in the end, it will be the person you have believed in your entire life who will have the final say. Miracles happen and it’s because God is watching. Always thank the doctors and attorneys yet don’t forget that He guided their hand. In times of need, it’s incredible to think you are not alone even if you haven’t been the most dedicated follower.

You’re Allowed To Waiver

In fact, He wants you to try new things and contemplate different theories. Sure, sometimes they will clash with your faith and you will have a difficult decision to make. Perhaps your journey encourages you to leave His flock for a short time. It doesn’t matter because wavering only makes your faith stronger. “Great peace can only come with great suffering.”

The fact that you don’t need to deny your thoughts and feelings only helps to merge religion and a 21st-century lifestyle.

Christmas cards 2018

While browsing for Christmas card options this year for Christmas party invitations and Christmas cards to send to family and friends, I came across Basic Invite and I immediately knew from now on they would be who I would use for my cards not just for Christmas but for the year through.  They have what I would call Unlimited colors- with 180 different colors to use and you can design every single detail of the card... this is one of the points that draw customers to them without a doubt.

You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so your invitation will stand out even before it is opened. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed without licking a single one. 


Remember the days of when we would all keep an address book in our house and everyone's address would be on it, well Basic Invite has a Address Capturing Service - Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.  


Foil - Foil holiday cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. My absolute favorite design so it makes this for me the best Christmas cards 2018

Outdoor exercise ideas to change up your routine

If you know anything about health, you’ll know how important it is for us to spend a little time outside each day to get some natural light and fresh air. You’ll also know how important it is to get regular exercise that you really enjoy. When you put both the outdoors and exercise together, you get something truly powerful - it’s like all of the mood boosting effects roll into one and you feel refreshed, awesome, healthy, and so much more! Plus, studies suggest that exercising outdoors could actually be far more beneficial than exercising indoors. You may burn more calories, for example, which could be great for those who are trying to maintain their weight or lose fat.


Below are a few simple ideas that could help you to create or change up your outdoor exercise routine. Take a look and see what you can do.

Sprinting
Sprinting is a fantastic way to work out, as you’re working as hard as you can for a short time, letting your heart rate come back down again, and then going again for around 20 minutes to half an hour. Sprinting is great for getting a sweat on quickly, burning a load of calories even after you’ve finished working out, and blasting fat. It also keeps things interesting when you compare it to steady state cardio like running.

If you have a field or a large park nearby, try going there and sprinting for 20-30 seconds, before walking or resting for 40-60 seconds. The idea is that you really push yourself during your sprints, and then let your heart rate come down before going again. It will be tough, and it’ll take a lot out of you, so be prepared. Just don’t do it more than a couple of times per week, as it can be very taxing on the system.

Biking
Biking is a brilliant way to enjoy some scenery, bond with friends and family, and burn a ton of calories and fat at the same time. Plus, as you’re giving a little resistance to the legs, it can also help to condition them and bring them into shape. Just be aware that bicycle accidents can happen if you don’t pay attention to your surroundings. Always wear the correct safety equipment too!

Rock Climbing
Rock climbing gives you another change of scenery, and it’s great because it’s something that will force you to stay focused at all times. You just can’t zone out with rock climbing. You have to keep both your mind and body engaged to avoid falling!

Trail Running
If you like running but you’re sick of the same old routes, try trail running. See where there are great runners trails in your area. You may not be able to head off running right out of the door, but it can mix up your scenery and make running so much more fun.

Volunteering
How about volunteering at your local dog shelter to take the dogs for walks? You’ll be enriching their lives and potentially enriching your own in the process!

Top tips to help you have the best camping trip with the kids

If you know that you are going out with the kids on a planned camping trip or if you know that you need to try and make this trip the best one ever then you have absolutely nothing to worry about. After all, it is super easy for you to make sure that everything runs smoothly and it is also easy for you to make sure that everyone has a great time as well.

Be Realistic

This may seem very obvious but you do need to make sure that the site you are staying at allows children. Not all of them do so you have to make sure that you read all of this before you go ahead and make a quick booking. If you have one or more kids who are wearing nappies, it also helps to make sure that you dispose of them on the site. If this is the case then it is a good idea for you to pack some bags so that you can keep everything sealed up nice and tight. If you are taking reusable nappies then make sure that the campsite that you are visiting has plenty of laundry facilities.


Keep your Kids Dry

This may sound like standard advice but it is your job to try and keep the kids as dry as possible. You have to remember that when you are camping, there is absolutely no indoors. Tents can provide you with some insulation but it is nowhere near the amount of insulation that a home can. For this reason, you need to make sure that you dress the kids up in layers. Don’t forget about their legs, their feet and even their hands as well. It is also a good idea for you to have some waterproofs and even some thick trousers as well. This will help them to keep their layers dry and it will also help them to play out for longer without feeling the side effects of the weather.

Keeping Everyone Happy

Don’t just assume that the kids will see a field of grass and immediately run off. If you are lucky they may be able to entertain themselves for half an hour. For this reason, you do need to make sure that you take a good amount of things to do. You can include toys, books for colouring and anything else you want really. If you do plan on taking some powered devices then make sure that you take a good amount of batteries as this means that you can keep them full of charge.



Staying Safe

It is so important that you don’t let the kids run off and explore the campsite by themselves. You should never assume that it is 100% safe even if it is child-friendly. You should also make the effort to try and show your kids around the campsite as well. You need to show them which areas are out of bounds and also try and put some lights outside of your tent as well as this will help them to see your tent from a distance. If you are taking a group of children with you then agree to have a place where they can go if someone gets lost. This way you can make sure that everyone knows the protocol. Of course, you never want something to happen to your kids when you are out camping but sometimes accidents do occur and there is nothing that you can do about this. For this reason, you need to make sure that you take a first aid kit with you. This will help you to treat any cuts and grazes, not to mention that if something more serious does
happen, you have the ability to try and treat it until a professional on the site can be contacted.

Food

If you plan on taking food with you and you know that there can be bears in the area then you need to look into bear-resistant food storage lockers. This will help you to stop tempting any wildlife and it also means that your food is going to stay safe as well. You may also want to look into getting a cooler bag because this can help to keep your food a bit colder than it would if you had it in a standard bag. This is a great way for you to keep everything organised as well so you can really count on this to make your meals that bit easier for when you do arrive at the campsite.

The negative effects of stress on your life


Your body is designed to be very resilient, yet over time, if you are chronically stressed then just the same as with anything else, something has to give.  Usually, it’s a case of the straw that broke the camel’s back, meaning, a particular trigger brings about a cathartic release of emotional and physical symptoms that have been repressed for a long period of time; like a door on a sinking ship - it can only hold the force of the water filling up outside, before the door gives in.

When this happens, this is when we tend to visit the doctor complaining of rather advanced issues such as angina or a mental health condition.  See, when it comes to health, prevention is better than cure. Indeed, in all areas of women’s health prevention is better than cure and early diagnosis of any potential issues is fundamental to optimising the chance of recovery… yet, we often put things off, which in turn causes stress, which exacerbates the physical condition and the “stress cycle” continues.

Often, it’s women in high paying jobs that suffer the most from stress, as their lifestyle is inherently stressful, particularly if they are having to balance being a good partner and parent with a high powered career.  Yet, stress is not limited to career women, indeed, raising a family can be a very stressful endeavour in itself.

When it comes to stress, your body is one connected unit, meaning the mind and body work in tandem rather than separately.  This means that your emotions can have a significant effect on your physical health, and vice versa.

When we look at the word disease, we can see it represents the body being in a state of “dis-ease” meaning disharmony.  In scientific terms, it means your body is not in a state of balance and homeostasis.

As a result, your body will develop external manifestations of this state of unbalance - with the most common symptoms being relatively simple, such as headaches, muscle pain, jaw ache, and difficulty sleeping.  In themself, they are not too serious, but when viewed as warning signs of what’s happening in your body it’s important to notice them and do something about them.

This means it’s important to resolve the root cause, rather than simply treat the symptoms, as so many people reach for paracetamol to take away the pain of a headache - but all paracetamol does is block the pain; so you feel it less -- the pain still exists, and the reason for the headache is still present… it’s just masking the pain.

Whereas, when you take a more holistic approach and look to resolve the root cause, you can start to bring your body back into a state of balance - meaning, you are soothing the symptoms by healing your body at a more internal level.

In summary, it’s important not to overlook the negative effect that stress can have on your body… but ‘stress’ exists and rather than attempt to avoid it - it is more realistic to consider how to manage stress instead.

6 Best Paying Jobs for Women in 2018



Even though things are much better than they were in the past and they show a promise of being even better in the future, the issue of pursuing a career as a woman is still far from easy. In order to avoid gender-blocking and discrimination, some women opt to find a job in a female dominated industry. Aside from this, one of the main contributors to the phenomenon of the wage gap is the issue of career choice, which is why informing oneself on the best paying jobs for women in 2018, is an important step in rooting out this problem.
Pharmacist

One of the best things about being a pharmacist is the fact that there are so many opportunities for growth. You see, your paycheck will mostly depend on your experience in the field, which means that things are bound to get better over time. Moreover, this is a   STEM career, which almost guarantees that this trend of growth is bound to pick up in the nearest future. Most importantly, although lucrative and promising career-wise, the field is not competitive, which makes it more welcoming and accepting of all. It also shows promise of becoming more and more diverse in the future. Lastly, by opting for a career path of a pharmacist, you stand to earn about $98,000 per year, which is a rather nice sum.
Lawyer
Previously, we talked about the optimal choice for those who don’t see themselves as that competitive; however, this is in no way the only course of action you can take. Pursuing a career in law presents a woman with so many different options, from representing individuals, businesses and non-profits, all the way to counseling and advising people on legal issues. The downside is the long career route (up to 10 years) and a continuous practice until you’re skilled, knowledgeable and certified enough to call yourself a lawyer. At the end of the day, you stand to earn an average of $83,000 per year, with a potential of earning a lot more.
Accountant

Another incredible option is accounting, that’s rapidly becoming a female profession. According to official statistics, between the years 1983 and 2012, the number of female accountants has undergone a stellar jump from just 39 percent to more than 60 percent. Aside from the opportunity for great profit and growth, another thing that draws women to this field is the fact that it offers a good work-life balance, meaning that they are in no way compelled to choose between a career and a family. In fact, with a  prestigious diploma of accounting, it’s possible to make a small fortune even as a telecommuter.
Nurse practitioner
Aside from providing primary healthcare to those in need (which is a satisfying notion), as a nurse practitioner, you can look forward to a relatively high salary. In fact, with a master’s degree, you stand to make as much as $87,000 per year (on average), which is higher than what you would make as a lawyer. The sole advantage of a legal career lies in the fact that the highest potential salary of a nurse practitioner is somewhat lower.
Computer and Information Systems Manager

Now, we come to the field that isn’t necessarily considered female-friendly, however; it’s time to leave these prejudices in the past. Moreover, this also gives you the privilege of spearheading the change as a pioneer. What you have to do here is to monitor, coordinate and evaluate IT-related projects. Keep in mind that as a manager, the tasks that you’re about to perform are more administrative and organizational than tech-related. As for the salary, the average is about $80,000, which is more than suitable.
HR manager


At the end of the day, while talking about stereotypes is wrong, women are seen as scientifically proven to be  more empathetic than men. This is incredibly important for posts such as HR, especially for the role of an HR manager.

Different Types of Property Fences

If you value safety, privacy and your home's appearance, you are likely wondering what you should do so that you can achieve peace of mind. Placing a fence around all or part of your property provides you with several unbeatable benefits you don't want to overlook.

Before moving forward, decide what your goals are to give yourself a sense of direction. Doing so might take some time but will allow you to move forward without fear, and you will be pleased with the outcome. You will soon know what type of fence can give you the results for which you have been looking.


Chain-Link Fencing
When it comes to budget-friendly options, you can't beat the chain link fence. In addition to being cheap, they are also easy for you to install, and you can have them up in no time. A chain link fence is made from steel wires connected in diamond patterns that offer durability. Although they won't give you much privacy, they will stop people from coming onto your property without permission. A lot of people choose this path because they can save money, and you can do the same if you would like to safeguard your budget.


Pool Fencing
Few things are better than relaxing by the pool on a warm and sunny day, giving you an excellent way to recharge and unwind. No matter the size of your pool, you must do something to prevent people from getting into it when you don't want them to do so, especially children. Curious children don't know the danger and will try getting into the water even if you tell them not to do it.

Installing a secure fence around your pool lets you avoid that threat and keep your children safe. Some people install a pool fence because they want to enhance their privacy. If you agree with their mission, you can find many fences that stop people from seeing you while you cool off and work on your tan. Working with a team of experts is a great way to find a fence that meets your needs each step of the way.


Garden Fencing
You put a lot of thought into your garden, planning where you will plant it and how often you should water your plants. If you live in an area with wildlife, then deer, rabbits and other animals will discover your garden and eat your vegetables unless you take steps to avoid the problem.

Young rabbits are small enough to fit through the mesh of standard chain-link fences, so you need to look for ones with an opening that is less than 1 inch wide. Since some deer can jump up to 8 feet in the air, make sure your fence is at least 10 feet tall if you would like to keep deer away from your garden. Overlooking the threat is easy if you have never seen animals destroy a garden, but taking steps to protect your plants is always worth the effort.


Final Thoughts
Choosing the perfect fence for your yard won't be difficult as long as you keep your needs and goals in mind from start to finish. If you have a pool and don't want to face the unthinkable, opting for a standard pool fence will be enough to reach your desired outcome.

Look for plastic or wooden fences if you want something that will stop people from watching you swim. Those searching for a way to protect their gardens can do so but must buy the right fence for the job, which depends on the type of animals they are trying to avoid. You will know you have made a wise choice when you complete the task and see your fence for the first time.
