Selecting Cushions for Outdoors

Plenty of us have furniture outside our homes. It’s a great way to enjoy nature or take in some sun while still remaining comfortable. But comfort often comes with foam cushions to enjoy. Whether you’re selecting furniture or looking to replace your current choices, keep reading for some tips on selection cushions for outside your home.

Unless you plan on bringing in your cushions when you’re not outside using them, you need to pick dryfast foam for your cushions. The truth is that there are other options. For example, your cushions may be waterproof and designed to keep water out from their interiors. But this often just isn’t the case. Between the constant attention from the sun and the type of wear and tear mother nature can deliver on a regular basis, most cushions give in and let water soak their insides.

Dryfast foam is designed for this eventuality, though. It won’t retain water like other materials do and, in fact, it’s great for fighting fungus from growing.

Best of all its very affordable and you won’t be sacrificing quality. This foam is extremely comfortable to sit on and will maintain its shape for years.

Whether you’re in the market for yacht cushions or cushions for your patio, you can’t go wrong with dryfast foam.  It’s a great option that doesn’t cost much yet still delivers all the right benefits.

Artificial Grass Saves You Time and Money

There are a lot of costs that you have to pay for when you have to maintain a naturally growing lawn of grass. There’s water, fertilizer and the labor of trimming it down when it gets a little too long.  When you accumulate all these costs in a year, you’ll be surprised that it costs about an arm and a leg just to maintain something as inconsequential as your front lawn. So why waste money by just maintaining your lawn? You could have spent that money on something more productive or something you can enjoy more.

One product that you can invest in is artificial residential turf. It’s basically synthetic polyethylene fibers that resemble the shape, texture, and feel of real grass. Being synthetic, it doesn’t need any more labor than the first time you install it on your lawn. You don’t need any more water or fertilizer and it even stays the same length so you don’t have to trim it down periodically. The cost of maintenance and labour of having a natural growing lawn would surely be more than the one time artificial grass cost and the fact that this maintenance doesn’t stop after a year would only make those costs much worse for you and your family.

Think about it, plastic is probably the way to go, it saves you time and money, and it’s even more resilient than natural grass which means it’ll probably last longer than normal grass under daily abuse.

The Benefits of Artificial Grass

When most people think of synthetic lawn turf, they usually imagine an athletic field or putting green used for practice. Few people immediately think of their neighbor’s yard. But if the trend continues, soon that’s exactly what you’ll think of when someone brings up artificial grass. Continue reading to find out why.

One of the main reasons people are switching to fake lawns has to do with the price. For the most part, after you’ve paid for the turf and its installation, you’re done spending money on your lawn. There will still be some maintenance costs to come, but for the most part, your investment is over.

Now compared artificial grass prices to what a real lawn costs. Paying for the grass and having it installed is nothing compared to what you’ll be spending every year for as long as you own it.

Real grass constantly needs water, unless it’s covered by snow. If you live in a warmer part of the country, your water bill can become astronomical. This is bad for the environment and your budget.

But your lawn also needs to be mowed constantly, weeded and aerated. There goes a huge chunk of your free time. You’ll also want to buy a cocktail of chemicals to keep it growing strong and free of vermin and other threats to its health.

When you put the costs next together, there’s no competition. Artificial grass makes the most sense.

Custom Cut Just For You

Written by The Foam Factory

We often hear about how people refuse to replace their worn out mattresses because they believe that they are saving money. They think they are making the most out of their mattresses because you can still sleep on it. There is another side of the story, however, that is often overlooked, and that is how some people have difficulty in replacing their mattresses. Walking up to any foam store, the normal thing you see are mattresses in sizes of “king, queen, twin, or single”. For beds, finding a new mattress is indeed very simple. But what about foams for all other applications that are less common?
Couches come in different shapes and sizes, and like beds, the support of the cushions decrease over time. Replacement cushions for these, however, are not commonly stocked on shelves because of the very diverse specifications. Fortunately, there are some stores who offer custom foam cushions to suit whatever your application is to have that perfect fit. You no longer have to “make do” or settle for the closest size. Now you can have the perfect size and the perfect firmness depending on where you plan to use it on. Getting one custom cut to your specifications does not take that long either, given a sample specimen, custom orders may be done within a day or two.

Replacing worn out foam cushions have never been this simple. For whatever application, size, or specification, there is a corresponding custom cut foam cushion just for you.
