Go Green With Kitchen Caddies And Home Recycling

October 13, 2015

If you are someone who already recycles and is passionate about reducing the amount of waste in our landfills, then this number will be significant to you.

However, it can be frustrating at times trying to recycle. Making sure you bring the rubbish out on the right days, reminding family members which trash goes where, and being vigilant about separating out your plastics and papers can all be time-consuming. You may have also struggled with deciding what type of container to keep in your home for recycling. It can be a hassle keeping the rubbish from the recyclables, but you are keen on doing so; therefore, a solution must be found. There are various solutions available that can make your life a little easier while you do your part to “be green”. A kitchen caddy that also doubles as a kerbside caddy is an ideal choice for households that have a significant amount of recyclables. Although they range in size, a 23 litre caddy can hold a week’s worth of recycling; if you choose the kind that has a lockable lid, you will not have to worry about related odours seeping out.

If you are an avid composter than a food waste caddy will help you put table scraps to good use after dinner. In two sizes that are small enough to be discrete but large enough to hold enough scraps for a few days, the 5 litre and 7 litre containers can easily fit in your kitchen or pantry. An ideal food caddy also has a lockable lid to seal in odours that can develop while also preventing insects from being tempted to look for their dinner in your kitchen. Even the smallest members of your family can help clean up after meals by putting their scraps into a sturdy yet sleek food waste caddy. Take a moment to think about these statistics from the green watchdog agency Recycle Now: 8 billion steel food cans, 6.6 billion newspapers, 3.3 billion aluminium cans, and 2.1 billion wine glass bottles were recycled last year alone. That is a lot of rubbish! However, it is rubbish that has been reused and re-purposed all thanks to people like you who take the time each day to set aside your recyclables. In homes across the country thousands of families are doing their part to fill their kitchen caddies with item that can be recycled, helping to keep England just a little more green.

What is Landscaping Gardening

June 17, 2015

By definition, landscape gardening, or garden landscaping is the design of public and outdoor environments to meet specific requirements or objectives. These objectives may involve, in the instance of a public park for example, the landscaping of an area to include seating for park users, lighting, and a playground for children. Landscape gardening is also known as landscape architecture, which is perhaps a more descriptive term, since landscape gardeners will typically design, plan, construct, and oversee the development of an area of landscape that they have been contracted to work on. Many additional services are often offered by landscapers due to the nature of the work, which can include construction, carpentry, tree surgery, fencing, and ground working.
The history of landscape gardening unsurprisingly derives from the design, planning and management of large estates, manors, royal palaces and residencies. During the 18th and 19th centuries, demand grew for the design of increasingly lavish and decadent gardens among the royal palaces and noble residencies. It is thanks to these commissions that we can now enjoy such delights as the gardens of the Palace of Versailles in France, designed by the famous Andr Le Ntre, and the beautiful gardens of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England.
Throughout the 19th century, the need for urban planning grew with the rapid development and growth of many cities. The term -landscape architect’ first began to be used by professionals in 1863 when Frederick Law Olmsted adopted the term. Olmsted was in fact responsible for defining many early practises of American landscape architecture in some of his great commissions, which include the famous Central Park in New York City.
Today in the UK, the Landscape Institute (LI) is responsible for promoting and regulating the profession of landscape gardening and landscape architecture. It currently has approximately 6,000 members.
RVDM Landscaping offers a comprehensive range of expert landscape gardening services including ground working and construction services.
