Fencing: Rethinking Privacy in an Urban Environment

Posted on 5 April 2011 | 1 response

By Danni Duggan for Landscape Network
Good fences make good neighbors. We have all heard the expression. And if you live in an urban setting such as Denver, Colorado, you know that the closer-in to an urban center you live, the more densely packed folks become. Fences seem the logical solution to define spaces. The question we found ourselves asking last year when we decided to re-build our fence, however, is, “Does a fence have to be a privacy barrier that blocks out the happenings of our neighborhood?”

We knew that it was finally time to rip down the twenty-foot section of arbor vitae that had served for over a decade as a repository for discarded items left by the daily stream of passers-by heading to the bus stop just down the street from us. We also knew that rather than constructing a fence that matched the existing privacy fence surrounding our backyard, we wanted to do something different. While we do require a fence to encourage the dogs to stay on our property and encourage strangers to stay off, we wanted a fence that would open up our view of the neighborhood and encourage interaction with the neighbors. We wanted something that would support a climbing rose as well as our spring time plantings of sugar snap peas. The fence needed to be landscape functional and friendly.

At this point, unsure of what we would use for fencing material, we could have consulted the experts. After all, who better to know the latest and greatest materials being used in fence construction today? We decided to go a slightly different route, however. Instead, we leashed up the dog and took nightly walks around the neighborhood to see what others were doing in their yards. We could not be the first people in the neighborhood to decide that they wanted to trade privacy for a full-on view of everything happening around them, good and bad.

We discovered a number of neighborhood fences that had built-in windows at both human and terrier heights. We learned from one homeowner that his fence windows were original to his house and that he had replaced them a few years ago with energy efficient windows. Another neighbor had constructed a Dutch door out of a section of his fence. The upper portion opened so that he could see what was going on, but the lower section remained in place, keeping Fido safely contained in the yard. There were a fair number of “art” fences in our neighborhood as well, metal fencing with bike parts and other found objects welded in place. We liked the idea of metal, but we had a hard time moving away from the idea of wood. Plus, in our effort to stay “green,” we wanted to re-use the existing fence posts from our privacy fence.


In the end, after all our research, we opted for a fence constructed of both metal and wood. We left the sunken wooden posts that belonged to our old privacy fence in the ground, but we removed all the privacy panels. In their place, we hand-constructed individual panels of concrete mesh held by a wood frame. Concrete mesh is a material typically used to reinforce a concrete patio, and since it is not traditionally used decoratively, it was inexpensive. We re-purposed the mesh as the star of our new fence project. And the results are better than we could imagine.

For one, we see everyone that walks down the street to the bus stop. We now recognize the regulars. We know more of our neighbors by name, many of whom stopped by to inquire about the fencing material as we were building the fence. We have found that the construction of good fences does make good neighbors. More importantly, those fences do not have to be barriers, walling us in, and everyone else out.

Woodpeckers: Messengers of Tree Health

The Denver metro area is home to numerous species of woodpeckers, and frankly, they often get a bad rap. Sure, a woodpecker can be noisy in the spring time when he is drumming on your metal chimney cap, or downspout, or gutter, but what better way to announce to the entire neighborhood, slightly before sunrise, that he has arrived, and he is looking for a long-term relationship? Incidentally, if you would prefer that the woodpecker drum elsewhere (say, your neighbor’s downspout), you will want to identify what is being drummed, and cover it with noise-deadening material. Canvas material or burlap works great. You will want to cover an area over several feet. If the bird need only move a couple of inches to continue to produce his noise, he will. And he does not care if you have not yet had your morning coffee.

Because of their readily identifiable drumming and bright colors, they are often easy birds to spot. And once spotted, woodpeckers are often blamed for tree damage. It seems a reasonable conclusion to draw: last year the tree was lovely, a woodpecker or two came along and drilled their tell-tale holes in aligned succession, and suddenly the tree is not looking so great. Must be that woodpecker! Actually, it probably is not.

Woodpeckers will drill for their favorite food source, insects. And they are both relentless and hard-headed. If you notice an unusual concentration of woodpecker markings on a tree, or even on your house siding, you will want to hire an expert to investigate your trees, or your house siding. The woodpecker, he is just the messenger. And he wants you to know that he has found an abundant food source, which is likely the infestation that is damaging that tree, or your home. In fact, you should consider thanking him for pointing out the problem, which if found early enough, may be reversible.

So how, exactly, does one thank a woodpecker? Well, you can start with hanging suet feeders in your garden. Suet is both high-protein and high-fat, and it can serve as a valuable addition to a bird’s diet in colder months when food is scarce. In addition to woodpeckers, suet is enjoyed by jays, chickadees, grosbeaks, and nuthatches. Because suet is made of animal fat, it is best to avoid feeding suet during hot months because it can become rancid if not consumed quickly. Also, because of the abundance of insects available during hot months, it is not necessary to feed suet year-round.

While often looked at as a “nuisance” bird because of its predilection for drumming on homes in the far-too-early hours of the day, remember that sometimes that drumming may be telling you something, and it is worth your while to listen. After your first cup of coffee, of course.

Battling Garden Slugs

Posted on 4 April 2011 | No responses

Vegetable gardening often yields huge rewards for the weekend gardener. It provides a green space in the yard that you can fuss over, weed, tend, and generally nurture. And all that hard work pays off when the very plants that you have babied for a number of months suddenly start producing some of the most delicious edibles ever to grace your dinner table. Vegetable gardening can be a stress-reducing, win-win situation.

So you can imagine the righteous indignation that many feel when their little slice of gardening heaven is suddenly overrun with garden slugs. Who are these midnight marauders that come to wreak havoc in our gardens while we sleep, and how can we stop them in their twinkling, mucous-laced tracks?

Garden slugs are a universal problem in gardens across the U.S. Whether you are at sea level in a coastal state, or mile-high in Denver, Colorado, chances are, if you are gardening, then you are battling these gastropod mollusks. Slugs require a moist environment to survive, so shade gardens are particularly prone to their visits. They may hide under leaves during the hot, dry portions of the day, but once the soil is watered and moist and the sun is down, they begin chewing their way through seedlings, leaves, and eventually, your ripening vegetables. Adjusting your watering schedule so that the plants are not watered prior to sunset may go a long way to controlling slugs in your garden.

There are a number of commercial products available to help battle slugs, and they enjoy varying levels of success. With the increase of organic gardening practices, however, many home gardeners are looking for home remedy methods for pest control.  Whether you employ these methods yourself, or seek the assistance of a landscape maintenance expert, you will be surprised by how easy it is to stay on top of a slug problem.

Trapping is a common method used to control slug numbers. Place any of the following items throughout your garden:

• damp wood shingles
• damp newspaper
• empty grapefruit or orange halves set up so the slugs can easily crawl in
• overturned flowerpots or jars, propped up slightly with a stone under part of the lip.

Be sure to check under these damp hiding places several times a week to handpick out and dispose of any congregating slugs. Slug disposal methods vary.   If you have chickens or ducks, they are often too eager to help you dispose of these delicacies.  Other methods including drowning in soapy water, crushing, or spraying with a solution of water and ammonia (only a 5 to 10% ammonia solution is required).

Another increasingly popular method of slug control is a “beer bath.” Using empty tuna cans or cat food cans, sink them into the garden soil so that the tops of the cans are flush with the ground. Fill each can with beer. Slugs are attracted to the beer, and they will fall into the beer bath and drown. The cans should be emptied and refilled every three days, possibly more often, depending on their success. Avoid getting the cans wet when watering to ensure the beer solution remains.

Generally speaking, slugs are a cheap date. They do not require your finest microbrew. Still, if the thought of sharing your favorite beer with these garden pests is more than you can “beer,” you can try making your own slug-attracting solution for each can by mixing:

• ½ teaspoon baking yeast
• 1 tablespoon white sugar
• enough warm water to fill a can the size of a tuna can.

Other methods of slug control involve creating barriers so that slugs cannot access your plants. Lava rock is a great barrier because the texture of the rock creates tiny cuts and abrasions in the slugs, which will dehydrate them should they be brave enough to attempt to cross. Crushed egg shell acts in the same manner.

Whatever method you choose to employ, reducing the number of slugs that have access to your garden will give your plants a fighting chance to reach maturity and finally bear vegetables for you and your family to enjoy.

Rocky Mountain Siding

Posted on 1 April 2011 | No responses

Although there are zillions of siding options for the home, an incredibly popular, aesthetically pleasing and rich choice is rock or stone. To improve your landscape and adopt a Colorado rock theme, rock and stone can be added to the front of your home or exclusively around the entryway.

True stone siding can be installed with the use of mortar directly onto the exterior of the home. For those with more renovation experience, this can be a “do it yourself” project; however, there are many companies available to help with design, materials and labor. Stone finishes can be added to the entirety of the exterior to provide a rustic and beautiful permanency. For a ranch home, the stone finish would classically only be applied to the entrance. Many options are available and can be discuss with your landscape designer

Taste and trends change in time and architectural styles are revisited and reinvented. Stone veneer draws inspiration from leading architects and designers in the industry to bring their visions to life in stone siding.  Statistically, a homes value can be increased exponentially with the addition of rock or stone accents. The accent of rock or stone often adds amazing value to your overall landscape and complete home plan.

Insulation and protection from the elements are two more solid factors to consider when adding rock or stone accents to your home.  This additional insulation can help save energy in your home by naturally decreasing heating and cooling costs. Low maintenance and upkeep are also added bonuses when making rock or stone your choice for siding.

Simulated stone and faux rock panel siding are other options to discuss. It is not only cost effective, but lighter and offers the same protection to the home. Rock panels are designed with an interlocking tongue and groove with ship lap edges that hide all mechanical fasteners so that no caulk or paint is necessary.   Some panels are manufactured with specially formulated polyurethane and are combined with fire retardants and UV inhibitors for added protection not available with traditional sidings. In addition, siding panels are waterproof, fade-proof and impervious to warping, cracks, or settling often associated with other types of siding.

Faux rock or stone siding is environmentally friendly and does not tax natural resources.

In fact, the procedure of harvesting rock, clay and stone materials is very harmful to the environment. This damage is increased once you realize quarrying, transporting and processing these raw stone materials demands a significant amount of energy and resources.  Faux products replicate the look of natural or cultured rock and stone so well and can add visual appeal to any structure without causing the environmental stress that comes from the process of harvesting natural stone.

Whether your siding choice is traditional or more trendy, real or faux, stone and rock siding certainly adds a low maintenance option, beautiful appeal, increased resale value as well as added protection for your home and its precious contents.  Stone siding has increased over 30% in recent years as the siding of choice amonst our fellow Coloradoans.  See for yourself as you take your next drive or walk through the neighborhood.

Choosing an Outdoor Smoker

Posted on 31 March 2011 | No responses

By Danni Duggan for Landscape Network

One way that homeowners are increasing the usable square footage of their existing homes is by building outdoor kitchens. While these kitchens may only be used during part of the year in Denver, those months that they are in use are extra special. Building an outdoor kitchen allows you to both double up on amenities that already exist inside the home (think refrigerators, gas burners, and sinks), as well as expand your appliance collection and cooking method options. Whether you decide to tackle the creation of your outdoor kitchen yourself, or consult the experts, one item to consider adding is an outdoor smoker.

Smokers use indirect heat to cook food. A gas or charcoal barbecue, cooking at low heat, still cooks at too-high a temperature to allow food to develop a smoke ring and that signature deep smoke flavor. With a barbecue, you need to monitor the cooking temperature constantly, and each time you open the lid, all that valuable smoke escapes. While grills certainly have their place, smokers they are not. More and more outdoor kitchens are incorporating both a barbecue and a smoker.

Pellet Smokers

Pellet smokers have emerged in recent years as one of the easiest options on the market. You can purchase different types of wood pellets that store in a “hopper” attached to the smoker. These pellets are then automatically fed via an auger to the smoker chamber. Many models of smokers have digital thermometers attached to them, so the smoker regulates the speed at which the pellets are fed in order to maintain your selected temperature. The better a smoker maintains its selected temperature, the less you need to fiddle with it or worse, open the lid and allow the smoke to escape. Pellet smokers come in a variety of sizes, but most will take up a sizable horizontal foot print. Planning for their space and their access to an electrical outlet is essential when designing your perfect outdoor kitchen.

Water Smokers

Water smokers can often be inexpensive options for someone who wants to try smoking food but has not fully committed to “the lifestyle.” These smokers are typically vertical, which helps them fit nicely into an already-appointed outdoor kitchen that did not previously plan for a smoker. The fire element (logs, charcoal, etc.) sits at the bottom, and there is a tray of water between the fire element and the food. This water tray provides moisture and protects the food from direct heat of the fire. Although these types of smokers can be purchased for very little money, it is important to note that the lower-cost options are often made of thinner material. Maintaining a proper smoking temperature (about 225 to 250 degrees) during the colder Denver months will be difficult with a smoker made of thin, inexpensive material. Electrical and propane versions of these smokers can help with temperature maintenance problems.

Whether you opt for a large smoker or a small one, adding a smoker to your outdoor kitchen provides ample opportunity to explore a cooking technique that cannot be done indoors. Be warned, however, that once your neighbors get a whiff of what you are cooking up, your outdoor kitchen may soon require an added outdoor dining room to accommodate the unexpected drop-in guests.

Attracting Hummingbirds to Your Garden

Posted on 31 March 2011 | 2 responses

By Danni Duggan for Landscape Network

One of the benefits of cultivating a garden in your yard is the ability to attract wildlife to your property. Sure, you can judge a garden’s relative success by whether or not your vegetable plants produce vegetables, or your fruit trees bear fruit, but another satisfying indicator of success is watching nature stop by and appreciate all your hard work.

Denver is host to numerous species of hummingbirds each year. In the spring, most are passing through on their way to nesting grounds. In the fall, they are making their way to Mexico and Central America. As soon as the winter weather breaks, though, they faithfully return to their Colorado homes to choose territory and attract mates. Your garden can provide them with just the right excitement and nutrition to help them with their long annual journeys.

Hummingbird-Friendly Plants

To provide hummers with a natural sanctuary, consider plantings that will both attract and entice them. Their long, slender beaks and darting tongues are perfectly engineered for finding nectar deep within tubular-shaped flowers such as scarlet gilia, salvia, and honeysuckle. While they are attracted to the color red, they are adept at finding nectar in flowers of any color and shape, so do not feel you need to limit your selection to red, tubular flowers. Other popular options include butterfly bush, columbine, and snapdragon. Keep in mind that having some red options mixed into your garden may catch their eye as they fly overhead, ensuring that they discover your sanctuary. Consider working with a landscape contractor who is intimately familiar with the plants that work best in your soil and gardening zone.

Homemade Hummingbird Nectar

In addition to plantings that attract hummingbirds, some people choose also to offer them homemade nectar in hummingbird feeders typically trimmed in red. Choosing to offer feeders requires that you are dedicated to cleaning the feeder and changing the nectar every three to four days. The feeder should be cleaned with mild soap and water to ensure that any bacteria build-up caused by the sugar water is destroyed. To make your own nectar, you will need:

• 4 cups of boiling water
• 1 cup of granulated (white) sugar

To ensure a proper 4-to-1 ratio, start out boiling more than four cups of water. You will lose some of this water to steam. Once the water has come to a full rolling boil, measure out 4 cups. Add one cup of white granulated sugar to the 4 cups of water, and stir until all of the sugar is dissolved.

Never use any other type of sugar or syrup, and never use sugar substitute. Also avoid food coloring, flavored gelatin, or flavored beverage mixes in your nectar. These additives can cause harm to the hummingbirds. Allow the mixture to cool overnight in the refrigerator. You may choose to freeze a portion of your nectar for future use. Anything that you make without freezing is good for three to four days only.

The food provided in feeders is a wonderful supplement to the hummingbird’s natural diet of flower nectar and insects, including aphids, gnats, and even mosquitoes. Attracting hummingbirds to your garden, whether with homemade nectar or flowering plants, can provide you with an up-close view of these little marvels of nature that easily consume half their body weight in nectar daily.

How to Choose a Landscape Contractor

Posted on 23 March 2011 | No responses

Choosing a landscape architect to redesign your home’s front and backyard is a big decision, and in order to yield the results that you desire, it’s advisable that one takes their time when selecting the company or landscape contractor that they plan on hiring for the job. Since there are many different kinds of landscape designs that you can choose to implement to spice up the exterior appeal of your home, there are some prerequisite steps that should be taken when considering different landscape contractors to meet your needs and overall design goals. To better help you along the way, here are some candid tips that you can implement which should enable you to more easily choose the right landscape contractor or company for the job.

  1. Make sure that you shop around and take a look at several different landscape contractors so that you can get a good idea of what choices that you have. Most of these types of contractors specialize in different kinds of landscape design, and many offer pictures of projects – past and present – on their websites. Take your time and look around to find one that can design the landscape of your dreams.
  2. Read what other clients had to say about the contractor before you hire them for the job. Sometimes you can even find addresses of homes from happy customers, and it’s not a bad idea to drive past them to see for your own eyes what the finished product looks like.
  3. You can always find ample lists of landscape architects in the American Society of Landscape Architects Chapter, which may help you to better select one that is ideally suited for your project.
  4. Interview them for the job. A landscape design is a big project, and only the right company or contractor will do. Setup phone or in-person interviews with several that you think fit the bill, and then take your time to ask them important questions about your project. Also, make sure to check out their portfolios so you can see examples of past completed projects.
  5. Once you have decided upon a few different landscape contractors, setup times for them to come out and preview your home so they can write you estimates on your landscape design.
  6. When you have made a decision on the landscape contractor that you wish to use, make sure to get their quote and contract in writing, and ensure that it’s dated and signed. This way you can rest easy knowing that all of the areas of design have been covered and communicated between both parties.

Some contractors will need access for a tractor with pallet forks to get the supplies to the area where they are working.

How to Choose Patio Deck Colors for Your Home

Posted on 22 March 2011 | No responses

If you are in the process of deciding whether or not to add a patio deck to your home in Denver, there are many options that you have to consider. By making the decision to add a patio deck to your home, you are enabling yourself to more beautify your home and its exterior appeal, not to mention that in most cases adding a deck to any home will work to increase the overall value of the home, or the sitting equity that you have in your home.

One good rule of thumb – if you plan on hiring Denver deck builders – when it comes to choosing the colors that you desire for your deck, is to trust the advice of seasoned professionals, who specialize in building decks. However, in the end, the choice of deck color is up to you. Hopefully, these helpful tips should enable you to choose the most appropriate and visually appealing deck color for your new deck.

Decide What You’ll be Using Your Deck For

By knowing what materials you want to use for your deck, you can have a better idea of what deck colors you have to choose from. Before you can choose your color, you need to decide on materials. Foot traffic is something to consider. Do you want to use your deck for entertaining guests, like for cookouts and barbeques, or is just as a sunbathing deck to read a book on? Do you plan on having a hot tub on your deck? If so, you may want to veer away from tiles, which can be very slippery when wet. Does your deck connect to openings in your home, and if so, what are the color schemes of the flooring in your home?

Familiarize Yourself with Common Deck Materials

The deck builders you choose can offer you a list of popular material choices for your new deck. There are some materials to keep in mind when selecting color, however. A concrete deck can be painted, textured and stained in nearly endless varieties. A wood deck provides you with many different textures and grains and woods, as well as finishes that you can choose from. Then there are stones and tiles, which present another fine array of colors and textures, from marble to granite. Decide what materials you want for your deck so you can choose the color and texture or grain.

Determine the Surroundings of your Deck

Lastly, make sure that you select materials that will mesh well with the scheme of the rest of your home. Generally, deck builders can greatly assist you in deciding what materials work best with your existing home layout. Most people desire their decks to look like they are an extension of the home. Others like them to be a standout add-on that has some flare and panache. Yet some others prefer that the deck matches the themes of the interior of their home. No matter which way you decide to go with your decking, you’ll be certain to have an added and visually pleasing amenity that you can enjoy for many years to come.

Xeriscaping

Posted on 22 March 2011 | No responses

Colorado State education’s extension programs says, “Xeriscaping” (zer-i-skaping) is a word originally coined by a special task force of the Denver Water Department, Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado and Colorado State University to describe “landscaping with water conservation as a major objective.” The derivation of the word is from the Greek “xeros,” meaning dry; thus landscaping utilizing the driest options without depriving the soil or plants.

The need for landscaping that conserves water received new attention following the drought of 1977 throughout the western states and the recognition that nearly 50 percent of the water used today by the average household is for maintaining landscaping grass, trees, scrubs and plants.

Soil preparation is key to water preservation.  If the soil is very sandy, water and valuable nutrients will be lost due to leaching below the root zone. If your soil is heavy clay, common in this area, you will lose water by runoff. A good soil is one that supports healthy plant life and conserves moisture and has a balance of rather coarse soil clusters.  The “ideal” soil has as much as 50 percent by volume pore space, with the soil itself consisting of a good balance of sand, silt and clay.

A major problem with heavy soils is that clay tends to dominate the soil complex. Clay is composed of microscopic crystals arranged in flat plates. When a soil has a high number of these crystals, they act much like a glue, cementing the particles of sand and silt together and resulting in a compact, almost airless soil. Such soils usually repel surface water, resulting in runoff. The small amount of water that does get into these soils is held so tightly by the clay itself that plants cannot use it. Sandy soils have very large pore spaces. Because the particles are large, there is little surface area to hold the water, so sandy soils tend to lose water rapidly.

Properly selected and applied mulches in flower and shrub beds reduce water use by decreasing soil temperatures and the amount of soil exposed to wind. Mulches allow for better use of water, discourage weeds, and can improve soil conditions. 

Proper irrigation practices can lead to a 30 to 80 percent water savingsaround the home grounds. If a sprinkler system is already installed, check it for overall even coverage. You don’t want watering to cause pools or puddling in some areas and not reach others. It is suggested that “irrigating turf areas differently than shrub borders and flower beds,” will get better results. North and east exposures need less frequent watering than south and west exposures. Apply water to slopes more slowly than to flat surfaces. Examine these closely and correct inefficiencies in irrigation system design. If you do not have a sprinkler system and are just beginning to install a landscape, you can avoid the pitfalls of poorly designed and installed systems. Have a professional irrigation company do the job correctly.

Whether you want to redesign an old landscape or start fresh with a new one, a plan is a must. The plan does not have to be elaborate but should take into consideration the exposures on the site. As a rule, south and west exposures result in the greatest water losses, especially areas near buildings or paved surfaces. You can save water in these locations simply by changing to plants adapted to reduced water use. However, do not be too quick to rip out the sod and substitute plastic and gravel. Extensive use of rock on south and west exposures can raise temperatures near the house and result in wasteful water runoff.

Slope or grade is another consideration. Steep slopes, especially those on south and west exposures, waste water through runoff and rapid water evaporation. A drought-resistant ground cover can slow water loss and shade the soil. Landscape designers will employ all the best principles of Xeriscaping when designing your landscaping project – elements like limiting sod area that require lots of watering, drought resistant sod and plant materials, moisture sensing watering systems, rock and mulch areas that blend into more lush planting areas for not only better water conservation but a tremendously beautiful landscape year after year.

Is it Time to Redo Your Driveway?

Posted on 21 March 2011 | No responses

Redo Your Driveway, Driveway, concrete, concrete contractors, concrete driveway, Denver concrete contractorsOur driveways can certainly take the weather and the elements and handle them for us rather nicely, but over time, like any other part of your home, a driveway can begin to show signs of wear and tear. Ultimately, you will have to redo your driveway usually once every 10 years or so. When you do decide to have your driveway redone, you have a few options that you can consider choosing from when using the services of concrete contractors to improve your home. After having your driveway redone, you will also want to make sure that you seal it properly so that it lasts longer and won’t be prone to cracking or premature deterioration; something that the concrete contractors you hire will be able to do for you upon completing the installation of a new driveway.

How to Know if you Need a New Driveway

Fortunately, identifying whether or not you need a new driveway is actually rather easily done. Take a look at your driveway on a clear and sunny day so that you can easily see it. Look around the edges, are they smooth or are they crumbling? If you have an asphalt driveway, are there bare marks? Are there holes in it? If you have a concrete driveway, look for cracks, see how far they run and identify if there are any chips or pieces of concrete that are present, and if so how present are they? Is water collecting on the surface of and around your driveway? Is the driveway lifting and dropping? These are all signs that you should repair or redo your driveway Usually, a cracked or chipped concrete driveway needs to be repaired or redone; which can range in different costs. However, most of the time you will just need to get your driveway repaired to fill in any cracks or chips and have it resealed.

Options for a New Driveway

The costs to redo your driveway can vary based upon the type of driveway that you choose. Two common choices include asphalt and concrete. You can opt to go with asphalt, however you should keep in mind that while less expensive than concrete it won’t be as durable. A new concrete driveway can last you longer and easily be installed by certified Denver concrete contractors. Even better, the process doesn’t take all that long. Most contractors can finish your driveway installation including sealing it in about 5-7 days.
