Granite is a popular choice for kitchen countertops. It's so common, in fact, that you're tired of seeing it in your friends' houses, decorating magazines, and model homes. For your kitchen remodeling you want something different that's stylish and yet durable. Try one of these alternatives.

If a bathroom renovation is in the works for your home this year, then you'll want to be prepared. Bathroom renovations are, after all, one of the most popular, and perhaps one of the most important remodeling a homeowner can perform. 

Perhaps this year, you're looking for something different for your home. Maybe something that makes it stand out from (or blend in with) the other homes in your neighborhood, as the case may be. Adding residential fencing to your home is an excellent way to improve many aspects of your home. 

Commercial fencing can come in a variety of different styles, though picking the right one can sometimes go along with the image you want to convey. This doesn't necessarily mean you can't experiment with fencing that's a little different if you want to set a different type of mood. Regardless, most business and industries pick specific types of fencing to suit a certain purpose along with the stylistic aspects.

With spring right around the corner, preparing your backyard for days on the lawn means investing in new outdoor furniture. While there are many different factors to consider when choosing outdoor furniture, the first major thing to decide on is what material you want.

Leaf blowers are an essential piece of lawn equipment for any homeowner, as they help to speed up various yard tasks such as the dispersing of fallen leaves and stray grass clippings. Without a leaf blower, one would spend a great deal of time cleaning up around the yard with a rake or broom.

Chain saws are one tool that tends to get used most during the winter. When you’re done using your chain saw for the season, performing some simple maintenance on it first will ensure you are ready to begin using it right away again come fall.

Out of all power equipment for winter, a snowblower is obviously going to be used more than any other. Here at Lawn & Leisure, we sell some of the top names in snowblowers, and they've gone fast with winter weather gripping much of the nation. 

Have you ever thought about using your leaf blower in the wintertime? It may be something that sounds crazy when there's little around in the thick of winter to blow away. Others might find it crazier when they see yard workers using leaf blowers in the wintertime to blow away thin air just to look busy. 

An outdoor patio can turn any yard into an exciting entertainment venue. Patio pavers, whether brick stone or concrete, will add class, character and personality to any outdoor area. The key to the successful installation of patio pavers is a well compacted and level base. The most common type of pavers is concrete, brick and stone. Each type of paver has its own unique features and will add a finished look to any patio.
