There is a wonderful gardening show on public radio called “You Bet Your Garden”, recorded right here in the Philly area.  The host has some excellent suggestions and recommendations for gardening the natural way, without pesticides or chemical fertilizers.  One of the recent shows extolled the use of garden beds for planting.  They are ideal ways to garden, and simple to use and enjoy.

Breeze Dryer currently offers a number of Hills Garden Beds, each specifically designed to make your gardening experience an enjoyable one.  Check out our different sizes and styles here Garden Beds at Breeze Dryer.  The Hills Adda Garden Garden Beds are so simple to set up and use; visit our website, purchase the style you prefer, and it will arrive to you with minimal assembly required.  If you own a screwdriver, you can do this.  The galvanized steel walls provide for long term enjoyment and no contamination of your soil (as may occur using pressure-treated lumber or railroad ties…which we do not recommend).  You’ll be quickly on the path of warmer days and happy gardening.

Mike McGrath, who provides endless knowledge of all things garden-related, and hosts the “You Bet Your Garden” show on WHYY and other stations throughout the country, can be found sharing some of his best garden bed info here:  YBYG .

Also, if bringing the garden to you is something you would enjoy, indoors or out on a deck or patio or wherever your imagination takes you, consider the garden bed with a base and ability to self-water (even while you’re away!) the Self-Watering Garden Bed is perfect!  With colors to match any decor and a top-notch reputation for reliability, the Hills SWGB is at home in apartments, homes, balconies…great colors too!

This past weekend, we attended the WNEP Home & Backyard Expo 2012 at the Wyoming Valley Mall in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  It was an extremely well run event and we had a fantastic time meeting people interested in line drying.  As a web-based retailer, one of the things that we really appreciate about shows is our ability to have people see and feel the difference in Hills Clotheslines and Drying Racks.  Sure, I’ve said this before, but there is honestly no comparison with the “comparable” products out there.  And by that I mean if you go into a big box retailer and try to look for a clothesline, you will find 3 facts to be true:

1. The selection is minimal, most often a cloth line that you would string from tree to tree and need to prop to keep your clothes from brushing the ground.

2. If there are options, they are unattractive options.  Nothing special.  You work hard to make your home attractive and your yard and garden lovely…you should have the option of choosing from products that are not only functional but modern and styled to fit in with your surroundings, not stick out like a sore thumb.

3.  Products that are very cheaply made, because anyone looking for a clothesline cannot be expecting very much.  These are not meant to last long (designed to last 2-3 years at most), then you will be back to spend your money on another very soon.

I am not trying to knock an individual’s method of line-drying; however you do it, whenever and wherever, it is a wonderful thing that you are doing for so many reasons.  But Hills products are built to last; you have tried the rest, now try the best.  (yes, I had to say it.)  Being at a show or expo lets us bring the products to those interested and show them that there are choices out there, and so many of them.  Colors, sizes, styles…Hills has thought of it all and their products are constantly and consistently refined, and they listen to their customers.  Where do you find that anymore?  That is why we are happy to bring such quality to Americans who want to take a bit better care of their clothes and their wallets.  The Return On Investment (ROI) of Hills clotheslines and drying racks used regularly is less than a year.

We will let you in ASAP on the next show that we will be attending.  And if you want to give line drying a try, or if you have been line-drying for years and want to upgrade to products that will last decades beyond their warranty and will save money and energy, come see us!  We love to discuss the virtues of line drying.

 

Balancing Act

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to mention nonetheless.  I’m sure most of our readers are aware of the fact that balance plays an important role in wash hanging.  If you string a single line across your yard, you wouldn’t necessarily hang the heaviest items in the middle, where the sag would overwhelm the line, although  the good old clothes “prop” poles do the trick.  The same “balancing act” goes for any clothesline that you may use.

There are unique features to the Hills Clotheslines that others just don’t offer.  We at Breeze Dryer are proud to claim them.  One good example is the spinning of the rotary in the breeze; it is not only lovely and calming to watch (can you tell how much I enjoy this?), but helps the clothes dry quicker.  Read the rest of this entry »

We are excited to offer a line drying solution to another area of your home – the pool!

Goodbye wet towels hanging on the chairs, fences, piled on the ground or draped over the picnic table . . . your pool area will look great and your towels will dry more effectively. Our Hills® Supa Fold 120 Folding Frame Clothesline (#FD45408) offers the perfect solution. When not in use the Supa Fold 120 folds down flat to the wall so it won’t get in the way when not in use. The width can be customized to accommodate whatever space limitation you have. Also works great for vacation homes at the lake or beach. Attach one in the garage or basement so wet towels won’t be left  hanging all over your house.

Don’t have a wall to attach a Supa Fold 120 folding frame ? No problem, our optional Supa Fold Adjustable Post Kit (#FD45420) mounts in the ground so you can install the Supa Fold120 in the location that best suits your needs. It is also adjustable to the height that is convenient to you. The optional Supa Fold Ground Mount Socket Pack (#FD45430)  allows the Supafold 120 to be removed from the ground and stored when not in use. That is what we love about our Hills® Clotheslines . . . they do not have to be permanently installed in your yard leaving you the flexibility to regain your yard space

Click here to See the Supa Fold 120 in action!

Contain the chaos of your time at your pool and save money as your towels dry perfectly in the sun with the Hills® Supa Fold 120!
