How to Choose Hydroponics Plants to Grow in the Suburban Hydroponic Garden

The attractive part of hydroponics gardening, and the reason why so many home and commercial gardeners and farmers are drawn to it is the speed that plants grow and the amount of produce crops grown with hydroponics technology produce. Although it looks like it is a big step from growing plants in soil, the step is actually only quite small. The nutrients that would normally be contained within soil are provided in the water. Once this has been done, other than physical support for the plant roots, the soil provides no further advantage. Because they receive all of the elements they receive in soil, a huge range of plants can be grown hydroponically.

The main types of hydroponics plants that we see are those that we eat. You may have noticed that many varieties of lettuce and herbs are now sold in supermarkets in plastic seeds with their roots still attached. These plants have been grown hydroponically. They are just as healthy and tasty as plants grown in soil.


Hydroponic strawberries are a seasonal fruit, bearing fruit only during the warmer months of the year. Hydroponics technology, with the provision of light, nutrients, and water, is able to grow strawberries all year round, producing rich, red, luscious, sweet fruit. The cost of hydroponic gardening is no more expensive than farming with soil, which means that hydroponics strawberries can be provided to local markets and supermarkets all year round from a local grower, rather than having them shipped in during the out-of-season months. This significantly reduces the cost of these hydroponic plants.


Although many varieties of lettuce can be grown all year round, this is limited by the rate at which lettuce grows during the winter months. If a particular area is prone to frost or snow, lettuce or other plants can not be grown during this time. Hydroponics plants can be grown indoors, meaning that they can be protected from the harsh winters and be grown all year round. Hydroponic lettuce also grows much faster than traditionally grown lettuce. This allows farmers to produce multiple crops during the year, enhancing their production rates, reducing the area they need to dedicate to an individual hydroponic plant, and thereby increasing their profitability.


The traditional hydroponic plant – the tomato – is perhaps the most well known plant to be grown using hydroponic systems. It can be found in almost all supermarkets, where it is now almost uncommon to find tomatoes that are not grown hydroponically. Tomatoes are particularly suited to hydroponic growing because they have small root systems, require quite a lot of water, and are particularly prone to soil-borne diseases, frost, and other radical changes in the weather. Hydroponics provides the stability that tomatoes need to grow and thrive.

In summary, a wide range of plants can be grown using hydroponic technology. The most common hydroponic plants that we as consumers come across are lettuce, herbs, strawberries, and of course, tomatoes. Hydroponics provides these plants with the stability in growth conditions that they require to grow rapidly and bear the most produce, making the entire system economically viable.

Pest Control and Termite Inspection in Suburban Areas

Pests are widespread all over rural as well as urban areas, but the pests that inhabit crowded cities are different from those in rural areas. You may be also interested in the kind of insects and pests that survive in the suburbs. These are a combination of the two types mentioned above. Therefore, pest control companies operating in the suburbs need to be properly prepared for eliminating or entrapping this large variety of pests. The type of these untamed animals found in any particular area depends on the geographical location and hence climatic conditions. Some of them can be hazardous for humans. It is imperative to keep a check on their population lest they should prove hazardous for people and animals of other genus.

Depending on its location, a pest control company should be organized to handle a wide range of animals. For instance, those in the suburban areas will need to be prepared for handling the usual rural rodents, big city rats, stray dogs and cats. Because of their large size, such animals are unable to survive in cities and thus migrate to comparatively more spacious suburban areas for making their home. In their own ways, all these animals can harm the properties and the population, while some of them are more hazardous than others. On being provoked, stray cats and big rodents can attack humans.

The smaller variety of rodents is notorious for moving diseases that could be transmitted to any persons via physical contact or pollution. When noticing the presence of pests in your home, it becomes essential for you to seek the services of a professional pest control agency, in order to make certain that your family and home remain safe, free from diseases caused by these animals. Though the presence of rabies is very rarely reported, you must take adequate precautions. Maintain your distance from any animals showing any odd behavior and don’t delay to ask for the services of a pest control company.

You need to take precautions that will eliminate pests or that will keep their threat at the minimum possible level. You may take suggestions from a pest control company to prevent unwanted animals from entering your premises and harming your family and property. For example, you should never keep pet food outside. Furthermore, garbage bags need to be tightly sealed in a suitable container. It helps to store waste food in dual bags. As and when garbage containers get filled to the brim, ensure that the bags containing waste foodstuff are not kept in the open, as they can easily be accessed by animals to feed themselves upon.

Termites are significantly important for keeping the environments balanced, but if they happen to invade your home, they can cause havoc, damage your property extensively and leave you worrying. Thankfully, this problem can be tackled on taking remedial measures in time without losing your sleep. When noticing termites at home, you should not lose anytime in contacting a competent pest control company for getting your place inspected and treated for termites. Take care to ascertain the credentials of the company before asking for their services, as there are bogus companies too.

The employees of the pest control company should be competent to locate the termite nests and eliminate them effectively. Generally, termite nests are found close to trees and their stubs, though at times they may be found underground.

A pest control company will first identify the species, locate their nest and then decide on the most effective way of getting rid of them. It is recommended to have your house inspected periodically for the presence of termites and utilize a chemically treated or naturally resistant variety of timber in your house. You can also get chemicals which, when being installed outside the building, work as soil barriers and prevent termites from entering your properties.

Normally, homeowners are not aware if their property is under attack from pests. Therefore, it is always better to get your property inspected at periodic intervals from a professional pest control company and keep your place free of all harmful pests. This measure not only keeps your property safe, but also your family.

Small Chicken Coops – The Perfect Compliment to the Suburban Backyard

With the busy lives that most of have these days, it’s hard to commit a lot of time to anything that isn’t work or other serious business. That doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy nature and improve your self-sufficiency by taking up a hobby like poultry farming. All you have to do is keep things small, and you can raise a small flock of chickens without the endeavor taking up all of your time.

The first thing to think about is how many birds you need to fulfill your goals. A lot of people pick up poultry farming to provide a steady source of eggs. Some raise the birds for their meat. Others simply want an unconventional pet. If it’s just eggs or a companion pet that you’re after, then all you really need are a couple hens. Even without the presence of a male rooster, a hen will continue to lay eggs – usually around 5 each week. So with just two hens, you’ll have almost a dozen eggs weekly. For small operations like this, it’s only natural that you’ll need a small chicken house. If you want to use the birds for their meat, then you’ll have to get more chickens, which means small chicken coops won’t cut it.

A small chicken house for just a couple of birds only needs to be a few square feet. In many cases, it’s possible to purchase or buy portable chicken coops, otherwise known as chicken tractors. These poultry houses have the unique advantage of combining the benefits of a coop (namely protection), with the advantages of free ranging. For instance, the chickens have access to new sources of food so long as their tractor is moved frequently, reducing the amount of feed they eat.

Top 5 Dog Breeds to Consider for Suburban Homes

Dog is truly man’s best friend. If you are considering a dog, think of it’s size and it’s needs. The suburban lifestyle is very versatile, allowing you to choose almost any breed. Listed below are the top 5 most popular dog breeds that suburban residents might consider.

1. The Labrador Retriever are friendly active dogs. They are perfect for the active neighborhood. Labrador Retrievers are outgoing, docile and eager to please. A Labrador needs a large amount of human contact so they make excellent companion walkers when you are out strolling in your neighborhood.

2. The Golden Retriever is very docile. This makes for an excellent companion for children of all ages. They are a large dog breed and would not do well in an apartment. The Golden Retriever needs a place to run and play. If you have a pool, you will find the Golden Retriever in it playing quite often as they are fond of water.

3. The German Shepherd is known for its strong loyalty to its family and suspicion towards strangers, making it an ideal guard dog. This dog breed is in the top 10 smartest dog breeds, making it easily trainable, making it ideal for people who do not have large amount of time to invest in initial training.

4. The Beagle is an active dog with even more active nose! The beagle needs his time outside to satisfy his curiosity of the unknown in nature. It can be left alone a lot of times but you might not like the fact that it might chase smaller animals. Beagles are good with children and would do best if they had a yard to run in.

5. The Boxer is a playful, loyal, and easy-going family pet. Most homes in suburban neighborhoods come with family friendly yards and the space required for a boxer. These things make the boxer the perfect suburban family pet. They love to take walks and are very child friendly. They can sometimes be rambunctious if left alone for extended periods of time so having an active lifestyle would be beneficial to let out its excess energy.

Remember a simple rule for suburban home dogs: the larger the dog breed, the larger the space dog will need.

Where Have All The Dirt-Bomb Wars Gone?

The suburban sprawl of the baby-boom years turned many farmlands into neighborhoods for young families in the 50’s and 60’s. City dwellers who escaped the concrete surroundings of apartment buildings, row houses, front stoops and playgrounds reveled in the spacious surroundings of their newly erected free-standing colonial or ranch homes. But there was one small price to pay. For the first two or three years of any new development construction, those homes sat amidst endless clouds of dusty farmland dirt. It was a nightmare for moms and their washing machines, but a living dream for kids.

Heavenly Dirt

When my parents moved my brothers and me into our own new homestead on a former Long Island potato farm, we had truly found our field of dreams. The endless acres of dirt provided the perfect theater for playing out unlimited fantasies, which for the boys, always seemed to involve the thematic backdrop of either sports or war.

Our dirt lots had no boundaries except the ones we created. We morphed baseball diamonds into football fields with the simple altered placement of a few rocks, where World Series and Super Bowl games were replayed a hundred times over. We stormed the beaches of Normandy and Iwo Jima, reliving Allied victories while looking for excuses to roll down the biggest dirt mountain in the field. The choice of either feigning your escape from enemy fire or being mortally wounded sufficed equally for this purpose.

To the neighborhood kids of these early “Levittown” construction years, the dirt was heaven. To the adults, the dirt was a curse and a nemesis against which they were constantly waging battle. Moms resorted to the chemical weaponry of detergents and bleach, while Dads attacked the ever-encroaching dirt through the trench warfare of planting shrubbery and rolling out their most effective big guns – the dreaded grass seed.

For us kids it was always a sad day in the neighborhood when another quarter-acre of gorgeous brown dirt would fall victim to a carpet-bombing barrage of fresh grass seed. In an instant, that free-roaming plot of land was transformed into a virtual mine field, demarcated by wooden stakes, white string and dangling tiny pieces of torn cloth which acted as implicit “Keep Out” warning signs. Heaven forbid the stickball player who was unlucky enough to pull his Spaldine rubber ball sharply into the foul territory of someone’s newly planted grass seed. To a Baby Boomer dad, there was no greater personal violation than that of his freshly burgeoning grass seedlings being trampled upon by some aspiring Hank Aaron. To retrieve such a ball was to navigate a mine field indeed, risking the wrath of an angry man holding a rake.

Despite the break-through creation of Pong in 1972 we were still decades away from XBox’s Call of Duty or Play Station’s Modern Warfare. In the absence of such technology – and still years away from Paint Ball – we needed some other way to fulfill our biological need to “play war” (a boy-hood desire which, for some inexplicable reason, seems to remain universal for every generation). And so, as with everything else, we took to the dirt.

War is…. Dirt

There may have been no better arena in which play out war games than the former potato fields of Long Island. That’s because the land offered an endless supply of the most important ammunition and vital resource known to boy kind: The Dirt-Bomb. They were small clusters of oddly shaped dirt cubes in various sizes, with a perfectly balanced consistency. These little weapons of mass destruction were solid enough to pick up and hurl without crumbling, but soft enough to explode in a dramatic burst of dust upon impact, and without serious injury… well, mostly. Occasionally, you would find defective Dirt-Bombs; ones too soft to withstand the stress of manually launching them (i.e., you couldn’t chuck those suckers), or worse, ones so hard that the Dirt-Bomb wouldn’t explode upon impact. Often, those Dirt-Bombs were not dirt at all. They were actually the fearsome Rock Bombs; solid dirt clusters that had the outward appearance of a Dirt-Bomb but with a hidden inner core of stone or rock. Nasty little buggers. As the Trojan Horse of Dirt-Bomb munitions, the Rock Bomb was considered unconventional weaponry and was offensive and intolerable by any standards of civilized Dirt-Bomb warfare rules of engagement. We were pretty sure the Geneva Convention had said so. We did know for sure that they hurt like hell and had sent more than one brave little foot soldier running home crying to mommy long before dinner, which was the predetermined official end to any battle.

Whether you were fighting in local skirmishes between two families, or in a fierce battle between your end of the block and the “other” end of the block, or on rare occasion engaged in a huge World War epic between your block and another entire block (the Mother of all Dirt-Bomb wars!), those Dirt-Bomb wars helped define our boyhood. And, in some strange sort of way, they also afforded kids the chance to establish rules of right versus wrong, and play out their conflicts. No Rock Bombs! No sneak attacks from behind! No aiming for the eyes! No ganging up on the little kids! These were perfectly sensible rules established within a perfectly stupid game. And like the countless (and much safer) stickball, basketball and touch football games to take place in the neighborhood, adult supervision for creating and enforcing the rules and consequences of these contests was not required.

Whether gleaned from our own household rules or derived from some innate sense of fairness and equity, the kids of our neighborhood in Smithtown, Long Island seemed capable of adequate self governance without the constant intervention from adults. We had our share of disagreements and certainly a few fist fights, but even those were part of the culture of deciphering right versus wrong. Perhaps we always knew that the court of parental appeals was only a doorbell away, and that helped to keep things in check. But in those early years such intervention was rarely needed, allowing childhood ethics to feel more like a Norman Rockwell painting rather than a scene from Lord of the Flies.

Eventually – as with any newly constructed neighborhood – the brown dirt lost the war to the green grass and shrubs, as wide-open dusty properties were slowly transformed into lush private yards. Admittedly, the grass felt good on our bare feet, though poor Mom had to wage war against a new enemy – grass stains.

Of course, for kids today (gotta’ love that expression) the way they compete – and conflict – has changed. Much of it plays out on cell phones and Facebook. Because everything plays out on cell phones and Facebook. Teenage and adolescent communication is now so instantaneous and constant that there’s no shortage of opportunity for unlimited wars of words and techno-competitions. Perhaps kids have bought into the old adage that “the keyboard is mightier than the sword.”

Face-to-face contact is slowly transforming into Facebook-to-Facebook contact. And the only remaining face-to-face competition for kids seems to be the super-structured and professionally-styled sports leagues where parents hold all the reigns and the kids are often pawns in an activity devoid of free spirit. Our new virtual world has changed the way we do everything, including play and fight, and it leaves me once again longing for the good old days when our adolescent conflicts and competitive instincts were all carried out in the same elementary forum – the dirt lot.

Try the Maldives

Taking a Maldives holidays has to be about privacy, peace and relaxation, it’s the perfect environment to kick off your shoes, sip a cocktail and leave your cares far behind you. And when the sun has set, sublimely, over the Indian Ocean, there is time to savor exquisite cuisine and unwind in your romantic room or luxury villa.

The Maldives one hotel per island policy has ensured the unique and still unspoilt charm of the destination. Even the airport has its own island with the obligatory “airport hotel” . so noise from the airport is never a problem. Upon arrival sea planes and speedboats connect with every arriving flight to transfer you to your chosen hotel. These transfers can range from a 20 minutes speed boat ride to a 45 minutes sea plane – just remember that its would take 45 minutes to fly from Heathrow to Edinburgh so these islands can be a distance away from one another. Some of the islands have retained the typical “no news, no shoes” flavor of the Maldives with thatched roofs, ceiling fans and open air bathrooms whilst others have developed into sophisticated, luxury five star resorts.

The pace in the Maldives is slow, the beaches are magnificent and the diving in these waters is excellent and is considered by many to be the best in the world. The Maldives islands are surrounded by underwater reefs housing myriads of colorful fish. There are many dive sites catering for all levels of diver providing the opportunity to explore nature beneath the sea and if diving’s not for you there is some superb reef’s idea for snorkeling where visibility sometimes exceeds 50 meters. Swimming and snorkeling are at their best when the water is at its calmest usually in December through to April when the rainfall is at it lowest. The rainfall is at its highest during the south-west monsoon, normally May through to November. The temperature though remains around 30 degrees centigrade all year round.

If you are a confirmed sun and sea lover then the unspoilt natural beauty of the Maldives is an idyllic place to spend your perfect holidays. The ingenious introduction of building small bungalows on stilts out in the sea an yet attached by decking to the mainland has proved to be a winner and a far cry from the suburban home, stepping out onto the sundeck of your private bungalow down 5 or 6 wooden steps into waist high warm water was something to behold, just don’t be fooled into thinking that rooms/ bungalows are available for the advertised “prices from.”

The travel industry is fiercely competitive, every one claims to be an expert and offer personal service but in truth its not true. Even as a travel agent I can phone a tour operator’s “Maldives Specialist” phone line and that person hasn’t actually been to the Maldives it just means that they have completed the training program. Is it any wonder that the public don’t know who to trust?

I am constantly staggered at how many people want lots of activities and to think they’d just go for a walk around the local town or would eat in a variety of local restaurants. This just isn’t that type of place, to enjoy this un spoilt natural environment as it is means there is no nipping off to the local off license for a bottle of rum or saving your pennies and going to a local cafĂ© for lunch.

The Maldives in is the middle of the Indian Ocean with almost no main land – tourism is the main source of income and everything has to be imported to these tiny islands and many extras can be expensive. Some of the island offer an All Inclusive package allowing you to pre pay for everything but don’t be mislead, the pre paying option isn’t to help you, its to ensure the island and hotel secure a certain level of income. Be aware that all the pre payable meal deals restrict you to eating in certain restaurants which can mean you end up spending more than you’d planned in the A La carte restaurants. If I’m honest unless you are likely to eat a large breakfast, hearty lunch and 3 course evening meal and plenty of alcohol every day you’re probably better off financially, to book a bed and breakfast basis and settle your bill upon departure.

Choosing the right island for you and your family is an exactly the same as deciding which hotel to stay in any other destination, if your a family with children then certainly there are some superb islands that you visit but they aren’t the same island as those you should visit if your on your honeymoon or the same islands if you are a diving enthusiast ! The beauty of the Maldives islands is that there are so many different islands that there is something for every one, golf courses, tennis courts, karaoke machines, discos and numerous restaurants and those islands that have no entertainment and no choice of accommodation, just discrete bungalows and calm relaxation.

What ever you do, save your pennies and even if its for just a week try the Maldives.

RV Hot Water Heater – Discover the Best Tank and Tankless Models

Atwood Mobile Products and Suburban Manufacturing have been making products for RVs for decades, and their RV hot water heater models dominate the recreational vehicle market.

Over the years these two companies have refined the designs of their units, so that their models can be easily installed and take up the least amount of valuable floor space. They have also improved their operational efficiency, and have included durable components that can withstand extreme weather and rough road conditions.

Both companies make propane-fired tank water heaters. Atwood only makes 6 and 10 a gallon models, but Suburban models come in 4, 6, 10, 12 and 16 gallon tank sizes.

When purchasing either an Atwood or Suburban model you will need to choose between three different ignition options. Firstly you will need to decide whether you want a pilot light model or a model with an electronic direct spark ignition system. If you decide on a pilot light model, you can choose one that needs to be lit manually each time, or a model that you initially light manually and then subsequently automatically relights.

You will also need to decide whether or not you want a model with a supplementary water heating system. If you do, then you can select a model with electrical elements in the heating tank, or a model with a heat exchanger that utilizes the RV engine’s heat to heat the water. You also have the option of a model that has both supplementary heating systems.

The Suburban units have a more powerful combustion system, and their models have a faster recovery rate than the standard Atwood units. However, Atwood has recently created water heaters that use an innovative exothermal technology that results in a 50% higher hot water output without increasing the tank size.

A few years ago PrecisionTemp created the RV-500, which was the first propane tankless RV hot water heater. This tankless unit is designed to be easily retrofitted in the place of a 6 or 10 gallon Atwood or Suburban unit.

If you purchase the RV-500 you will never need to be concerned about running out of hot water, and your water temperature will always be consistent. Unlike the tank units, the RV-500 does not suffer from standby heat losses. Its microprocessor controlled combustion system is also more efficient than that of tank models. As a result of this higher efficiency, this tankless unit uses up to 50% less propane than the tank-type models.

You can use an electric water heating unit in your RV if you have a generator, or if you can rely on electrical hook-ups. Some RV owners purchase compact under sink electric min-tank units to supplement their hot water supply, or as a back-up for their main RV hot water heater. The most popular models are the Ariston water heaters distributed by Bosch, or units made by Stiebel Eltron, Eemax and Rheem.

Commercial Office Space Perfect For Suburban Tenants

When business owners start the search for new commercial office space, they may not want to choose a location within a big city. In other words, suburban markets are more ideal for one or more reasons. This is true with business owners in the Chicagoland area. Although the city is a great place to live and enjoy the attractions, working within the city is not the right answer for all business owners. Fortunately, there are plenty of suburban markets which hold so many wonderful opportunities for suburban business owners.

O’Hare Office Market

It is close to many area interstates, which makes commuting easier for yourself and your employees. Also, there are plenty of other companies and industries in the area which will often allow new clients to find their way to your office if they are in the area for other reasons as well.

Towns such as Skokie, Evanston, Morton Grove, Wilmette and more are filled with commercial real estate leasing options. Situated close to Lake Michigan, these towns are not only perfect for commercial offices but they are quite scenic locations as well. This makes it easy to both live and work in the towns in the North suburban market area.

East-West Corridor Office Market (Oak Brook/Naperville)

The East-West Corridor also holds a lot for business owners in the way of ideal commercial real estate. Two towns in particular which are fantastic spots to lease space include Oak Brook and Naperville. Oak Brook is located about 20 miles west of the city and is a perfect suburban location for business owners seeking office space for rent outside the city. Those who lease an office in Oak Brook will find they have plenty of well-known neighbors including Ace Hardware, Papermate and the McDonald’s Corporation, to name a few.

As for Naperville, this town is located a bit further west of Oak Brook, being located 30 miles outside of the city. Naperville has plenty of commercial leasing options, both large and small, for business owners to take advantage of. Lucent Technologies, Kraft Foods and ConAgra Foods are some of the big names in business which you could have as your neighbor if you lease a Naperville office. Naperville is also a nice place to lease office space as you will find plenty of amenities close by, which can be beneficial for both you and your employees.

Northwest Office Market (Schaumburg)

The Northwest region outside of the city has plenty of commercial leasing options, including within the town of Schaumburg. Schaumburg is home to two large corporations, IKEA and Motorola. It is also an area filled with many different shops and restaurants as well as plentiful professional offices. Those who lease an office in Schaumburg will love the convenience of having the city not too far away but appreciate not having to deal with the traffic and congestion which the big city holds. Schaumburg offers small professional business settings as well as office space for large corporations to lease.

If you are eager to lease space in the suburban market, then looking further into the options above is an excellent place to start your commercial office space search.

Benefits Of A Suburban Extended Stay Hotel

A suburban extended stay hotel is not a type of accommodation that would be booked for a vacation, such a service is primarily aimed at business people. If your occupation involves being away from your home for a considerable time, i. E. More than a month, or if you need a temporary place to stay due to a work based relocation, this is an option that may be the solution you require.

If you were to base yourself in a regular hotel for a considerable period of time, the total outlay can be extremely costly, and besides, the rooms in regular hotels are not designed for permanent living. By opting for an extended stay hotel you should find that you are a lot more comfortable.

For a start, this type of accommodation most often comes with a full kitchen, albeit on the small side. Being able to cook dinner after a hard days work is an activity many of us enjoy, eating out every single night can become tiring, and a real drain on fiances. The kitchen would typically feature all the utensils and appliances that you require.

Entertaining is also easy as you would usually have access to a number of rooms as opposed to a single space. This is important as socializing can help a business traveler feel more at home and relaxed.

Another great aspect about a suburban extended stay hotel is that there would not be a lengthy contact that you would have to sign up for. Instead, you would be required to inform the staff of how long you plan on staying for, there may be a minimum duration of perhaps a couple of weeks or a month that is stipulated by the management.

In most facilities, there would be no lengthy approval process, credit checks, or the requirement for a large bond or deposit. It is the simplest way to relax in comfort when you are away from your usual residence.

There is also the added advantaged of a maid service. Most of the suburban extended stay hotels provide various facilities such as room cleaning and laundry, so you do not have to worry about the housework chores. With the rooms coming fully furnished, and usually replete with TV and wi-fi, you will not have any regrets about choosing this desirable form of accommodation. As the costs are not excessive, you may find that it is the perfect solution for your needs.
