Avoid Back Injury

Whether you’re working on a do-it-yourself project or moving the couch for spring cleaning, there’s a chance of injuring your back. Here are a few options to ease the heavy lifting chores.

If you have small kids, then you probably have a wagon—great for hauling trash, tools, and gardening stuff. For moving sheetrock, plywood, or paneling a skateboard makes a great dolly. Tie on a towel or a piece of carpet to keep the sheets from sliding off, and hold them on edge as you roll them into place.

No kids? Well, you can make a simple dolly with 3/4″ plywood and some swivel casters. For moving furniture over hard surface floors, try resting the piece on a blanket so it slides over the floor as you pull it from one spot to another.

    Hi Bob,
    I added some photos at the bottom of the page showing what the landscape lighting looked at night. Scroll all the way down to see them. Thanks for your feedback!

    I watched your “How to Install Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting in Your Yard” video. You should really show the final results. A short clip of what the lighting looked like at night would have been nice.
