Steph's backyard is small and is totally shaded by large oak trees thus no grass grows back there. The ground is covered with pea gravel in lieu of grass which creates a problem when you try to rake leaves.
Steph researched a solution and decided this Ryobi battery powered leaf vacuum/mulcher would be a good choice to deal with the leaf cleanup problem in the backyard.
As all pet parents know, it is not unusual for their furry friend to have an accident or two in the house.
Steph had it easy with greyhound #1, Mac, who only ever had one accident in the house, but greyhound #2 is an entirely different story!
Lots of accidents, lots of messes to clean up!
Steph already had a ONEPWR Spotless GO Portable Carpet Cleaner to pick up spills, but has needed to add a few more tools and supplies to deal with Tosh's frequent mishaps!
Since making improvements to my garage a few years ago, we've noticed a crack in the ceiling that has grown to stretch from the garage door to the back wall!
Steph decided it was time to investigate why it was happening. She contacted Gary, a good friend of hers that has professional drywall experience to help her troubleshoot the problem.
With Gary's assistance, she was able to determine why the crack was getting worse, stabilized the problem, and then repaired the cracked drywall.
Steph is continually on the lookout for new products that easily solve a simple problem. This screen patch is one of those products.
The very first Mother Daughter Projects DIY video and post was re-screening Steph's porch screen. That was almost six years ago and in all that time, the screening never required a repair, well, that is until after Tosh joined the household back in November!
Tosh is a retired racing greyhound. There is a bit of a learning curve as the retired racers learn about doors and windows and all things house related. In Tosh's case, she didn't "see" the screen door and ended up putting a small hole in it.
Actually, Steph was a bit excited as she could finally try out this new screen patch kit!
We had some very thoughtful and helpful comments posted our video about the resin shed assembly. We though a couple of the comments had merit so we decided to implement them.
Here's what we did to improve the shed based on viewer comments.
