Even if it’s just with nothing but green, or perhaps you’ve added a bunch of flowers to the mix, you’ll always want to take care of them to preserve its natural beauty. The use of garden sprinklers can help you achieve such an objective.

sprinkler control system

A garden sprinkler control system strategically placed around your beautiful front yard, backyard, or perhaps in a landscaping masterpiece will help keep the immediate environment pristine and healthy at all times. You can even use these sprinkler systems for the kids to have fun during the summer. If you’re already considering on purchasing garden sprinklers, then we’re here to steer you to the right path. We’re going to introduce to you the different types of garden sprinklers available on the modern market.

The Circular Garden Sprinkler 

If you haven’t figured it out yet, the circular garden sprinkler throws water in a radius. Some people think that it’s called as such because many models have a circular base. Well, that can also be the case, but it’s mostly because of the way it throws water to your garden. This type of sprinkler system will rotate at a 360-degree angle. The power of which the device throws water depends on a number of factors like the current status of your home’s water pressure. You can also adjust the distance of the thrown water through the system itself. The circular sprinkler system is great for small gardens and landscaped areas. However, you can place multiple models of this sprinkler throughout your garden to maximize the distance of the water that’s thrown.

The Oscillating Garden Sprinkler 

Most oscillating garden sprinkler systems will come with a rectangular-shaped base. Also, many units will have about 10 water holes. These holes will be the starting point where the water flows out. Small gardens or lawns that have very few plants can take advantage of this type of sprinkler system. It’s because it offers flowing water in a straightforward direction. The speed and distance of the water flowing from the base depend on the user and the current water pressure in the area. You can attach the base of an oscillating garden sprinkler to a nearby plumbing system.

The Impulse Garden Sprinkler 

Many large gardens and even golf courses use the impulse garden sprinkler system. It’s because when this type of garden sprinkler is attached to a nearby irrigation system, it can throw water over long distances. Users install the sprinkler heads straight to the ground, and you’ll connect it to a plumbing or irrigation system. The water thrown will freely flow in either a fast or slow pace. Furthermore, the sprinkler will throw water at a 360-degree radius. Think of this model as a more powerful version of the circular garden sprinkler system.

The In-Ground Garden Sprinkler 

If you want the best garden sprinkler because of its utility as it brings a great number of benefits to gardens and lawns, then perhaps you ought to consider installing an in-ground garden sprinkler system. Users or owners of this sprinkler system will connect the sprinkler head to a nearby water supply. Therefore, you can even use a traditional garden hose if you so desire while still making sure that your in-ground garden sprinklers won’t stop functioning. Keep in mind that in-ground sprinkler systems do come into the market with different types and costs. Why is it considered the best? It’s because these sprinklers have built-in sensors. Whenever it detects that your lawn or garden is in need of moisture, it’ll automatically kick into gear.

You can also install a timer function on your garden sprinkler system (if you haven’t already) to minimize instances of manual control. It’ll also do you good to have the accessory because it means you don’t have worry about forgetting to water your precious plants.

  • The bottom should also be flat. You should let it dry for three to four days before taking out the concrete top. All the drywall screws should be removed first.
  • Be careful not to touch the concrete with the screw driver or the chisel. Soften the edges of the piece with the help of sand paper. Some bug holes may be found in the concrete. These bug holes can be filled with a paste of Portland cement.
  • Fill any other areas that also needs fixing. Application of some sealer and wax will bring a layer of sheen on the concrete. On a coffee table use of caulk is recommended.

5 Reasons to Choose Eco-friendly Rooflights http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/5-reasons-to-choose-eco-friendly-rooflights/ Wed, 13 Dec 2017 11:31:06 +0000 http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/?p=163 Rooflights are a mega-awesome way to add a trendy and contemporary feel to your home. Alongside a cant-miss aesthetic, energy efficient is also supreme. And there are umpteen of reasons why making the decision to choose eco-friendly rooflights is a wise one. Installation of ecological rooflights in your dwelling place offers a plethora of benefits. Lets dive in and take a glance at five of them.

  1. Consume Less Energy

Some recent researches show that the total energy usage in UK homes has been increased by 25% since 1970. Its important that property owners harness energy-saving ways to lessen consumption and minimize this shocking figure. Therere various ways that homeowners can employ to lower the amount of energy being consumed in their properties. And installing eco-friendly home rooflights is one such solution. Their triple glazing cuts down on energy expenditure, making these rooflights an extremely efficient and energy-saving lighting option.

  1. Save Money

In tandem with consuming less energy, the money-saving properties of ecological rooflights also make them a tempting option. In case you choose to incorporate these light solutions into your home, they maximize your energy savings as well as eliminate the need for artificial lighting, making sure that your hard-earned bucks remain in your pocket rather than being spent on heavy energy bills.

  1. Reduce Carbon Emissions

The standard building rules are specifically aimed at saving energy and trimming down power consumption in buildings. And Carbon emission reductions are a crucial aspect to achieve this standard. The rules further state that this standard can be achieved if major savings come from building services including lighting. Installation of environmental rooflights in your home assists in the diminution of Carbon emissions.

  1. Maximize Natural Light

Who likes to spend too much time in an artificially lit environment? Natural sunlight is a far cleaner, brighter, and more ecological source of power. Eco-friendly rooflights not only save money and lower energy consumption, but they also flood your home with a profusion of natural light. Unlike windows or vertical glazing, rooflights confine light irrespective of the suns position and boast the ability to fill large areas with natural light. Maximizing pure, natural sunlight makes a more amusing environment than ever before. Apart from this, it is closely allied with health and other advantages: a sense of well-being has been proven to be related to revelation to innate daylight.

  1. Low U Values

The next point to consider before investing in eco-friendly rooflights is the U value. For those whore unfamiliar with the term, U values are indicators that give you an idea of how much heat is lost from a building via doors, windows, and floors. The higher the U value, the more heat is being lost and less eco-friendly that specific building is. On the other hand, a low U value is a sign of more insulating factors and greater energy efficiency. So, before paying for rooflights, you must ask for their U values from the custom rooflight supplier.

Decadent Visit Of A House With Scandinavian Airs At The Water’s Edge http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/decadent-visit-of-a-house-with-scandinavian-airs-at-the-waters-edge/ Mon, 30 Oct 2017 04:33:37 +0000 http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/?p=56 Since April, I present video capsules on interiors filled with good decor ideas cheap. They are shot by M2Go.ca , although there is not necessarily furniture from this great online furniture store in the interiors we visit. M2Go has just embarked on my trip to take you on a journey of decoration in the world of people who know how to make beautiful with creativity and a small budget. Today, I am particularly proud of the episode we have concocted because I take it as a gift. It was Amelie, a reader of the blog who contacted me saying that she had just finished renovating her little house in Saint-Ours, on the banks of the Richelieu River. She ended her message by saying to me: “I think you would like it because, say that you inspired me a lot during this long process. It will be our pleasure to make you discover our little corner of paradise if you wish it “. Obviously! And even better: I take you with me! I can tell you that Amélie and her husband Alex inspire me. I’m amazed, it’s beautiful what they did! Watch the video and tell me what you think?

I hesitated a bit to put the pictures below, because I REALLY want you to watch the video rather than scrolling quickly photos. It’s a lot of work to make a video like this. Vincent from M2Go and I put a lot of energy into it, not to mention the time that Amelie and Alex have so kindly given us. I must confess to you in all sincerity that if the number of views is not large enough, well we will not be able to shoot others. And I want to continue so watch the video!

If I put the photos to you, it is to summarize you the good ideas and allow you to pin them on Pinterest.

A white Scandinavian interior with walls and floors painted white

A swing hanging in the living room

A dining room furnished with recovered objects or found on classified ads

Open and practical IKEA kitchen with well organized storage

The bedroom under the attic

You did not see it because we ran out of time to show you everything in the video!

A bucolic exterior by the river

A wooden path with rope ramp manufactured by the owners

And now I have a quiz question for you! Find out in the cutest video I’ve ever seen, hanging on the front door of their house. It scrolls quickly in pictures but it did not escape me …

You have to know that Alex, the owner is an amateur fisherman. He fishes every day at the end of his platform when he comes home from work and brings in some nice catch. Is not it the dream like life? The #slowlife in all its splendor.

A huge thank you to Amélie and Alex for having us so warmly received in their little corner of paradise. And thanks again to M2Go for making these capsules.

Did you like this little house at the water’s edge as much as I did? What did you prefer?

Where To Buy An Eames Chair At The Best Price? http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/where-to-buy-an-eames-chair-at-the-best-price/ Sun, 03 Sep 2017 06:32:42 +0000 http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/?p=63 If like me you are fans of the famous chairs of the Eames couple, you have certainly already asked the question: where to buy an Eames chair at the best price?

Beyond the question of choosing the shop, the real question is: what kind of Eames chair would you like to buy? If you answer this second question, the answer to the first one will come very easily. There are four main types of Eames chairs:

  • 100% original chairs (with shell, base, shock mounts and vintage screws)
  • Semi-original chairs (with antique shell and new base)
  • Chairs reissued by Vitra in Europe and Herman Miller or Modernica in the USA
  • Copies that are unofficial reproductions

Before going into the heart of the matter, if for you DAX, DAW, DAR, RAR, DSX, DSW, DSR … it’s gibberish, I propose a small revision with the image below which takes the models the most common (there are many more, you can find them on the excellent Eames Designs website )

The chairs Eames 100% original

A collector’s item very rare and expensive! On such a chair everything is vintage: the shell (fiberglass), the base, shock mounts, screws. The cheapest of all are the DSS and DSX that you will find from 150 €. For a DSW, the price varies from € 600 to € 900 depending on its condition (shell, base, shock mounts, label), its year and the rarity of its color. For a DAW it is necessary to count between 600 € and 1200 € for a very rare PAW (feet which pivot) Post Zenith edition between 1800 € and 3000 €. For a RAR the most iconic model the price will depend on the edition between 3500 € and 9000 € for a Zenith, between 3500 € and 6000 € for a Post Zenith between 900 € and 2000 € for a Herman Miller, and 800 €

To know the year of a chair it is necessary to refer to the label present under the shell. 
All hulls are easy to date between 1954 and 1972, the ones that are found are generally from 60 to 70. In France they were distributed by Mobilier International who affixed its logo. The hulls of the 50s are easily differentiated, the design is slightly different and the fiber thickness is much greater.

1. Logo Zenith, the holy grail for all collectors. Produced from 1950 to 1952. Only these editions are particularly popular because they include the famous tower in Europe edge (hemp rope at the edges of the hull). No hull is the same because the manufacture is artisanal.

2. Post Zenith or Zenith 2nd generation. Produced only a few months from the year 1953, they have all the characteristics of the Zentih without the Europe edge. It is very rare to find them again with their label. The artisanal manufacturing process was soon abandoned for mass production no longer including large shock mounts, and the fiberglass is less and less present over the reissues Herman Miller.
3 & 4. Herman Miller classic with the logo molded in fiber produced from 1954 with often the label taking the patents. The logo molded in the fiber is a characteristic of the American hulls.
5. There are Herman Miller hulls that were also produced in Canada. The main feature: the Herman Miller typo which is different.
6. Herman Miller hulls produce in Europe. In addition to the label the chairs have the Herman Miller logo on the shock mounts.

7. From 1972 to 1989 Vitra published fiberglass chairs. Below is the label of a very rare 1972 version where Herman Miller produced the chairs and Vitra broadcast them. Then there were other logos (I do not have photos).
8. Then the latest productions of fiber chairs by Vitra (picture of a 1989 hull).

Because of its very high price (except for DSX and DSS), a 100% original chair is intended for collectors or design lovers … who do not count!

Advantages: collector’s item 100% original with a story
Disadvantage: very high prices, hard to find in good condition, very fragile for a Zenith edition

The semi-original Eames chairs

This type of chair certainly represents 95% of the market of the Eames “period” chair, it is the chair that is generally found in antique shops. This is an original shell (fiberglass) mounted on a new base (either directly with a base Vitra or Herman Miller, or a copy more or less happy). The shell usually comes from old DSX chairs, models prevalent at the time but whose legs are less popular than the famous Dowel (wooden legs) or Eiffel.

It can also be a DSS shell (very common since used in large numbers in classrooms, party halls …) but beware, the DSS of American origin have more muted shock mounts at the front and in the back, this assembly is called “wide” in opposition to the “narrow” assembly. The fact that the shock mounts are further apart makes that the general design of the chair will not be the same as for a “narrow” assembly. This difference may not be important for you but for a collector it is. At the time the “wide” hulls were only mounted on “scholastic” bases, a “wide” montage on a Dowel or Eiffel basis is therefore a heresy for a collector since it has never been marketed.

Also note that a shell without side armrest on a rocking chair base is a model that has never existed, but that is regularly found in antique shops …

The only models that have existed with a side chair on a rocker base is the RKR model (more often called Bikini) pictured below. A very rare 1951 model will cost almost as much as a Zenith.

Junddo, Made To Measure Furniture http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/junddo-made-to-measure-furniture/ Thu, 24 Aug 2017 06:37:44 +0000 http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/?p=66 Arthur and Xavier created the furniture brand Junddo in early 2016, with the aim of reinventing custom-made products. For this, Junddo designs and manufactures furniture to the centimeter, in France, from quality materials. The young publishing house also wants to be transparent about its manufacturing costs and its margin, this information is available in the manifesto of the brand.

Hello Arthur, can you introduce yourself? 
Hello Freg, my name is Arthur, approaching slowly, but surely in my thirties. I grew up surrounded by artisans in an area where the forest and nature have their place. Completely melted in Parisian life for ten years, I enjoy this inspiring environment as much as possible.

How was Junddo born? 
Junddo is above all the fruit of a common desire, that of Xavier and myself, to invest our time in a project that fits us perfectly. We are training engineers both, passionate about technology and design. Two years ago, Xavier returning from abroad wanted furniture that fit his apartment, but the offer was unaffordable! In the manufacturers themselves, we realized that we were able to solve an impossible equation: to make custom furniture in beautiful materials, in an affordable way. From one thing to another, we have developed the concept, surrounded by designers and manufacturers who share our values: quality, design and local manufacturing. Junddo was born!

How is your range composed? 
At present, we have a unique product. This is a piece of furniture for storing vinyl records and platinum. Designed around the use, it is a well thought out creation, with a neat but sober design, which allows the material to express itself, with great freedom for the customer to choose the perfect version for his needs. It is possible to choose the width to the centimeter, and several types of wood.

Where can we find it? 
Our products are available on junddo.com . In addition, it is possible to see and touch our vinyl furniture in Paris in several places where it is exposed, in record stores and Hi-Fi stores: Soundtracks , Retrofutur , Audio Presence Board , Betino’s record shop . In each place, an atypical atmosphere with always golden people!

Where are your furniture made? 
This is one of Junddo’s key points. For us, it did not make sense to have made-to-measure furniture unique for thousands of kilometers. The manufacturing starts only after the order. We work with a fantastic carpentry located in the Vosges, which has existed for more than 40 years.

What are your plans for Junddo?
They are numerous ! We are in an intense phase of creation and design. Our collaboration with Philippe Riehling the Designer Range, continues with two coffee tables visible in preview on our website. The first is called Samiel, it was published a few years ago by the Edito in birch plywood. We worked to propose a model this time only in solid wood. The second coffee table is called Dyname. It is completely tailor-made with storage spaces. It will be possible to vary all its dimensions. In parallel, we are in the process of making prototypes of two models of solid wood shelves. They wonderfully put the subject forward and we look forward to sharing the first visuals soon.

COD Furnitures, Customizable Scandinavian Spirit furniture http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/cod-furnitures-customizable-scandinavian-spirit-furniture/ Thu, 10 Aug 2017 06:44:34 +0000 http://www.selectcoatingsokc.com/?p=69 Created in Tourcoing at the end of 2015 by Mathieu Fort, the COD Furnitures brand designs and manufactures furniture with lines inspired by Scandinavian furniture from the 1950s.

Hello Mathieu, can you introduce yourself? 
Hello Freg, my name is Mathieu Fort, I’m 34 years old, and I’ve been a design lover for years. I always had this desire to draw furniture. I started by making some sketches, then 3D and it is finally by confronting my creations to my entourage and to the experienced designers, by collecting very positive opinions, that the envy came to me to produce them and to propose them to the greatest number.

How was COD Furnitures born? 
I imagined my first collection starting from the observation that the Scandinavian aesthetic is based on the simplicity of the forms, the authenticity of the materials and a very particular balance in the proportions. The challenge was therefore to design furniture that had both their own style but clearly marked them in the Scandinavian current of the 50s. The difficulty: find the ideal proportions. It is with the help of today’s technologies and especially 3D printing, and the creation of many miniature prototypes that we have determined which would be the perfect lines. I also wanted to allow our customers to appropriate my designs to include them in their decorations. The idea of ​​customization came naturally!

How is your range composed? 
I released this first collection at the end of 2015. It consists of two rows (180 cm and 130 cm), a sideboard, a desk, a coffee table and a bedside table. I presented my first Scandinavian collection at Maison & Objet in Paris in September 2016. We received very positive feedback. This year, I collaborated with a Lille designer on a new model. It is a modular shelving system, inspired by the famous design of the 50’s. I present it at the International Furniture Fair (IFFS) of Singapore this month.

Where can I find COD Furnitures furniture? 
On our website , and recently, you can discover us at the shop Bô-M , in the old Lille. We are working on developing our network of reseller partners.
