Modern Garden Design With Wall Fountains

Choosing the right water features for your modern garden designs involves a lot more than simply the aesthetic flavor. Wall fountains are becoming increasingly popular as a staple feature of entryways, patios, decks and lobbies not to mention extraordinarily popular in gardens and yards. Take your time to choose the right one that fits what you are looking for. A good way to do this is to simply look at wall fountain pictures from a printed catalog or high quality online retailer, close your eyes, and visualize how the fountain would look in your garden. Choosing Wall Fountains Before you start off on your quest for the right wall fountains for your modern garden, you need to consider where in your garden your water wall fountain is going to be placed. Do you plan to put it along a stone or brick wall in the back of your garden, or closer to the front where it will have more visibility? Where you decide to place your water feature will help you determine what type of wall fountain to purchase. Some people buy their fountain of preference first, but often bring it home to find out that it does not coordinate with their modern garden design, or that it does not fit where they thought it might. This is why you should examine the space that you have long before you consider what type of water wall fountains to purchase.

Modern garden designs can take on a number of different themes. Modern wall fountains with Zen themes, for example, may not blend in well with classic marble and statuary filled gardens that have more of an ancient Roman theme. It is important that you choose water wall fountains that coordinate well with the décor and theme that you have already established in your modern garden. Otherwise, your wall fountains may simply not fit in, which can disrupt the look or feel of your sacred space. Find out more about Zen garden design with the use of wall fountains at http://www.witch-crafted.com/garden8.htm The next thing that you need to decide on is what type of wall, and where you will put your brand new wall fountain. Are you considering a large sized wall fountain that is more vertical than horizontal? Or are you looking into horizontal wall fountains that take up a lot of horizontal space instead? The type of fountain that you plan on purchasing will play a determinant role in where you can place it, but you should also look at your options long before you choose a specific fountain to purchase. Different fountains can really enhance certain walls, because they draw the eyes in different directions. Vertical water wall fountains, for example, tend to draw the eyes upward and then beyond. Lower walls on the other hand are best suited for smaller, horizontal water features, because tall, narrow features would look cramped on walls that do not accommodate them fully. You must consider both your wall options and your fountain options before you do any serious planning, otherwise you may end up with a situation that you simply do not like.

So here is what you need to know when purchasing water wall fountains for your modern garden design: Decide where you want to place your wall fountains before you purchase them. The reason being is – when you go shopping, you have the measurements, location and other pertinent information in mind. Also, consider what kind of fountain you have in mind before you go shopping, so you can eyeball your garden or other preferred installation location, before hand. If you don’t think it will work, don’t risk it; otherwise you may end up with an expensive garden fountain with no place to put it. Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=218158&ca=Gardening

How To Use Wall Finishes In A Bedroom Design Project?

Dear friends, any interior space is composed of some primary architectural elements such as walls, floor and ceiling. Depending upon the type of structural framework, the construction method would change. We always see experience and perceive any interior space in elevation. This means that walls are the first things of any structure that create an impact on our mind. The quality and volume formed because of the walls define an architectural structure. When we enter a building, what we primarily and dominantly perceive are walls. Let’s see how walls can be used as an excellent element in a bedroom design project. 1) Exposed Brick walls. In order to use these kind of walls it is necessary to preplan the interior design schedule. Normally if a brick wall is to be kept exposed (without plaster), it is built with high quality bricks which are machine cut for high quality and accuracy. Since bricks have their own color and texture, this option can be used to create a color contrast by keeping only one wall exposed and other with a contrasting color. This can add some interest in the bedroom. 2) Exposed plaster walls. An exposed plaster wall is a wall which has not been painted. These kind of walls are very rarely used in interiors. Since the plaster is a composite material using appropriate qualities of cement, sand and aggregate, the final material has a dull color. A dull color on a space like bedroom would express a kind of depression, hence is not recommended. But portions of a wall with preplanned design and sketching can be used in association with exposed brick wall. Design pattern with partly colored and partly exposed plaster can be a good idea. Or a completely exposed plaster wall with a design patter in grooves can be used effectively. 3) Wall with tile cladding. Tile cladding is what we see in kitchen above the cooking platform. Tile cladding is also used in bathrooms and toilets. These are normally ceramic tiles. In a bedroom interesting patterns can be created to fake the exposed brick wall mentioned above. Many excellent patters can be used just like a jigsaw puzzle. 4) Paint on walls. The word painting has two meanings here. a) A wall with plane colors applied to it. This is done above the plastered surface of the wall. Two or three coats of the desired shade of the color and base material are applied. b) Secondly, instead of using plane colors, the entire wall can be used as a “canvas” to paint a story or mural. This is a very good method to paint children bedrooms. Walls can be used as a storyboard to create interest. 5) Wallpapers. Applying a wallpaper is an excellent way to quickly change the look and feel of the bedroom. Depending upon the “theme” of the room many wallpaper patterns are available. Wallpapers are very good in large bedrooms. In large bedroom “emptiness” is a big problem. If there are not enough decorating elements available, a room might look empty. Here wallpapers can serve as fillers and quickly add some interest in the room. 6)Textured plaster walls. These kind of walls need special techniques to create a textured pattern on walls. Once a texture is applied any shade of paint can be used. One of the great thing about these walls is, when sunlight falls on them, a very interesting play of light and shadows gets created. Because of the undulations in the surface of the plaster, small shadows form on the surface of the wall, giving it a visual quality. A wall in the bedroom which receives direct sunlight should be chosen for this purpose. This article shows you how various options to the existing wall finishes are possible, that can enhance the quality of the bedroom interior space. I hope this article was informative to everyone.

Three Critical Design Techniques To Design A Money-Making Blog

When people go to visit your site, they will already have some ideas about its content based on information provided by the referring source. For example, search engine results may provide a clip of text from your site that includes relevant keywords. In many cases, if the promised information is not delivered within the first page, you can rest assured that potential buyers will simply look for another website. Therefore, the way you structure your blog is extremely important. 1) Headers and Banners Today, many webmasters create niche specific different domains in order to keep the content as relevant as possible. This includes rotating banners, or special content headers at the top and bottom of the blog. Surprisingly enough, this does not advance search engine ranking, let alone assure that customers are going to buy from your site. When it comes to banners, you need to stop and ask yourself three very important questions: 1. When searching for specific information, do you even bother to look at banners, or do you quickly scroll down to find the content? 2. Have you ever clicked away from a page because it took too long for the banners or headers to load? 3. Do you often associate banners at the top of a page with “free” webhosting sites, and therefore, form a mental impression that the site may not be very creditable? If you answered “yes” to any one of these questions, chances are the majority of site visitors are also thinking the same way. No matter how you look at it, the advice related to creating massive advertising campaigns based on headers is useless, and downright harmful. As a general rule of thumb, you will always be better served by using these areas of your website for sensible sales pitches that can set the tone and the mood of the potential buyer. 2) Page Loading Speed There is no question that DSL, satellite, and cable modems are a vast improvement over dial up. On the other hand, many of these services also limit consumer bandwidth usage. As a general rule of thumb, if you page takes too long to load, it may also take up too much bandwidth. Under these circumstances, you can rest assured that potential customers will be annoyed and not want to come back to your site, let alone buy anything from it. While you may want to have a fancy website with lots of frills, you will always be better served by a clean, neat, fast loading website. 3) The Ideal Number of Columns When you open a newspaper, you will notice that the text is divided into a number of columns. Many webmasters try to duplicate this effect with their blogs. It is very important to realize that newspapers must make use of every available spot on a printed page. Therefore, when they break up text onto different pages, it makes sense. On the other hand, when you have more than three or four columns on your site, it can create a great deal of confusion. In fact, if your site has five or even six columns, some of them may be inaccessible to visitors with small screens. This problem becomes even pronounced if the browser does not support the vertical scrolling instructions found in the code for your blog. As a general rule of thumb, you should try to your site focused mainly on post and page content. Today, it is not always easy to draw a balance between a well designed website and one that looks contemporary. For example, if every other webmaster has a site with five or six columns, you may be tempted to clutter up your own site up. On the other hand, if you give it some though, you will soon realize that components such as extra columns and flash banners won’t gain any added value in search engine ranking. At the same time, potential buyers may become frustrated with slow loading pages, as well as ones that do not deliver the desired information. If you have to change design elements, you will be well served by changing logos, menu styles, and other features that will give your blog a contemporary look without sacrificing the functionality of the site.

RSS Feeds – Why Should You Use Them on Your Blog or Facebook Wall?

At the Start… When building your first blog, twitter account or website, sometimes it can be hard to write all the content yourself, especially if you have no writing skills. And more so when you have limited time and are working a full time job and have a family to attend to and support. This guide will show you what RSS feeds are all about, as well as how to install them on Twitter and Facebook. So what is an RSS Feed? RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. It’s a piece of code that updates content on a website, blog, Twitter and Facebook pages. It’s a great way to get up to date information for your site users. You can have it updated ‘as it happens’, ‘once a day’ or once a week’. And all for free too. Your content options are News, Blog Posts, Videos and Discussion groups. Setting up an RSS Feed for Twitter, Facebook Having to update information on your Twitter page or Facebook wall can be a time consuming task. First you have to read through dozens of news articles, YouTube videos and monitor lots of discussion groups. Alas, there is an easier, automated system you can use. And at no cost, just about an hour or two of your time. Using Google Alerts and another couple of free online tools, you’ll be all set up in no-time. It’s a pretty basic setup. STEP #1: Basic Keyword Research First find out the top keyword phrases in your niche market. Using the free keyword research tool at adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal enter your top three to five broad keywords, one at a time, and for each one. After you do the search, the top 100 keyword phrases are displayed. Choosing the top two for each of your base keyword groups, open up your notepad and copy/paste your keywords and save to desktop. STEP #2: Setting up Google Alerts RSS Feed Next go over to google.com/alerts and in the ‘search terms’ textbox, enter your first keyword from the list you just created, preceded by allintitle: for example: allintitle: KEYWORD PHRASE1 Now select the type of alert you wish to feed. I recommend varying this for other keywords – it’s up to you. Now choose once a day for each of your keywords, and only the best keywords, and select the deliver to feed option, then hit the button. STEP #3: Obtaining Your RSS feed Code You’ll be presented with the list of your alert feeds next, so follow the link to create another alert for each of your keywords. Now open up the notepad file with your keywords you saved earlier. Click on the orange icon next to the link for using the Google Reader. You’ll see a new browser open up, displaying the XML code. Now we don’t need to understand all of it. Simply highlight and copy the http link for this RSS feed, and copy it to your notepad file. Do this for each alert. Here’s the link code you’ll need shown highlighted below: Google Readertag:google.com,2005:reader/user/05298211196547701748/state/com.google/alerts/16143275445321857510Google Alerts – world news2011-06-09T20:16:46Z-tag:google.com,2005:reader/item/061157d80f5d9e37Feeds for Google Alerts2011-06-09T20:16:46Z2011-06-09T20:16:46Z STEP #4: Sign up for Bit.ly and get an API Key An API key is a long password code that allows the Bit.ly online service update your Twitter and Facebook Accounts on autopilot, at times allocated by you. So go to bit.ly, sign up for a free account. Once your account is set up, read over the start-up help files and obtain your API key. Copy/paste your API key to your notepad text file, as well as your bit.ly username. STEP #5: Get Set Up with TwitterFeed.com TwitterFeed.com is a free web based tool that delivers all your tweet messages on a schedule basis. So get registered there then click on the Create New Feed button. Name your feed, then paste in the RSS link for your first feed. Choose the advanced Settings link, and set your feed to update every 3 to 6 hours. Remember Twitter only allows 50 tweets a day at time of writing, so don’t abuse it or they’ll suspend your account for a couple of weeks or more For the Post Content option, choose select title only, because you don’t want page descriptions showing up in your Twitter tweets, which are limited to 140 characters, including all links. Then back on TwitterFeed, check the box on the right labelled post link. The API login and key from your notepad should be copied and pasted here, so that the links can be shortened by bit.ly and posted to your Twitter page and/or Facebook wall page. Now click the button for step two. This section allows you to configure access to your Twitter or Facebook for the feed updates. Just click the links and enter in your details. STEP #6: Repeat Step #5 for Each of Your Google Alerts RSS links And that’s it. Check your Twitter profile page the next day, to see if the automated tweets are there. If not, go back and check all your settings and retry. If still you have problems, contact the websites you’ve been using to automate Twitter posts. The Downside of Using an RSS feed The only problem with using RSS is that you’ll be leaking out links to other vendors affiliate programs, rather than monetizing the links yourself. So it’s best not to link to other people’s blog pages, but set up Google alerts for news items and videos only. It’s better to send out tweets or wall posts that link to your word press blog page or articles on a web site you own. Monetize your web pages with Google Adsense, affiliate program adverts or link to an email squeeze page. Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=876622&ca=Internet

Is a Precast Concrete Wall The Best Option For Noise Reduction?

There is an increasing demand for reducing noise within internal areas such as restaurants, homes and office buildings. Believe it or not, the kinds of material you use can have a relatively high impact on whether or not noise is deterred. One of the building type of materials that is subject to many differing opinions is that of precast concrete.

There are many reports that we will be covering in our new concrete fence wall blog that have shown that any kind of concrete simply echoes the noise and can potentially increase it. However, there has been recent research that has shown that precast concrete whether as an indoor fence or outdoor wall provides the highest sound transmission loss value when compared to other noise wall products. This research has shown that the noise reduction from these barriers requires a considerably smaller footprint compared with earth beams.

One feature of precast concrete is that it can be manufactured and inspected prior to installation, which can reduce yours or a contractor’s construction timeline. You will find an extensive selection of textures and finishes with precast concrete and because it is produced in a controlled environment, it is constructed with a high quality and uniformity.

There is virtually an endless amount of aesthetic options that come with precast concrete, which can be beneficial for a noise reduction. This allows you to design and style up the walls that you plan on placing noise barriers in. You will find that many buildings and offices take advantage of this opportunity to capture a theme across the rooms.

The reason it is capable of adjusting so easily to different construction situations is because precast concrete barriers have a low water-to-cement ratio. By utilizing this low ratio, higher strengths and lower permeability can be achieved. With air voids within the concrete, there is more opportunity for freezing water to expand. In essence, this minimizes the potential for scaling and deterioration of the concrete.

When researching offline, you will find contradicting discussions over whether or not precast concrete is the optimal material to use for noise reduction. There have been considerable arguments for both cases, but it is hard to go against the research stated above. It is up to you to draw your own conclusion whether or not precast concrete is the superior choice for noise reduction, and doing further research can better support your decision.
