Depending on the forecast, I consider the week before and after Memorial Day planting time for all the tender annual flowers and vegetables. If you go by the book, it isn’t until now that we can consider ourselves to be beyond the threat of frost. This is, of course, is based on an average of last frost dates and the way things have been going this season, Mother Natures is holding us to the rule unlike the last couple of years when we were able to get away with planting a little early. Even still, I want you to know that I’ll be proceeding with my planting of flowering annuals even before you’re reading this. While we’re all anxious to plant, it’s important to remember that the most popular vegetables grown are descendents of varieties that were discovered (or plundered, depending on your view of 16th century Spanish colonialism) in Central America. Tomatoes, squash, peppers, beans, corn and many others were staple crops in the empire of the Aztecs. While Cortez and his conquistadors had no appreciation of Aztec culture, they, along with their Jesuit partners, were “religious” about sending anything of value back to the king and queen at home. While the wealth of gold has long been spent, the horticultural treasure continues to feed and delight us. The diet of Europe before the “discovery” of the New World must have been very bland indeed. The hallmark of Italian cooking is tomato sauce yet; they didn’t cultivate tomatoes in Italy until after 1600! We associate potatoes with the Irish but there were no potatoes in Ireland until they were brought back from the New World. There WAS wheat in Europe so, as far as I can figure, they were real “meat & bread” folks until the ships returned from this side of the Atlantic. The point of all this is that many of our vegetable crops, with their Central American roots need lots of heat to perform well in our northern climate. There are many tricks gardeners use and I’ll share a couple of them. To get our tomatoes to mature and start producing sooner, we need to increase the air and soil temperatures around our transplants. You can use hotcaps that you’ll buy at the garden center or make your own from plastic water or milk jugs. To make a hotcap from a plastic jug just take a sharp knife and slice an X through the bottom of the jug. The center of the X should be in the center of the bottom of the jug. This will give you four flaps that you’ll bend outward so you can anchor the jug to the ground with rocks or long nails to keep it from blowing away. Be sure to remove the cap of the jug to allow excess heat to escape. We want to warm our transplants, not cook them. You can also cover the soil at the base of your tomatoes with a sheet of black plastic. The black plastic will warm up in the sun and trap that heat, warming the soil below. Tomatoes love warm soil. If you use tomato cages for support, you can install them as soon as you’ve planted your tomato seedlings and wrap the cage with clear plastic. The clear plastic wrapped around the tomato cage creates a little greenhouse that’ll bring the temperature up to levels that tomatoes prefer. Leave the top of the plastic-covered tomato cage open to let excess heat escape. On nights that you expect temperatures to fall below 50 degrees, cover the tops of your “mini-greenhouses” to keep the temperature up overnight. Don’t forget to uncover them in the morning or they’ll cook. When I’m running late with my planting, there’s another trick I’ll use to get seeds (like beans) to sprout in the shortest possible time. I’ll sow them in a shallow trench with soil built up on either side of the trench. Then I’ll cover the trench with my “germinating fabric” (also known as “floating row cover” or “frost fabric”). I can anchor the fabric with stones or tuck it into the soil to keep it from blowing off. The fabric will allow light and water to pass through but will trap enough heat to warm the soil, getting my seeds sprouted without cool weather delay. As soon as the seeds sprout, I’ll remove the fabric at let them enjoy the sunshine. I hope the weather cooperates and we’ll all be able to finally dig in and get the crops in. I hope I don’t hear that dreaded “F” word until October. Thanks for the read.

* Transplant at the right time. It’s best to transplant trees when the ground is not frozen. When transplanting in the spring, do so right after the ground has thawed and before the tree or shrub’s buds begin to swell. When transplanting in the fall, do so soon after leaf drop to allow time for root development

Homeowners move trees around their property for a number of reasons. Some might be adding on to their property and need to make room for their new addition, while others might simply want to move a tree for aesthetic reasons. Whatever the reason, transplanting trees can be risky. Trees that are not fully healthy, for instance, might find a transplant too stressful. If the stress proves overwhelming, the tree could die or lose some its physical appeal. Though there are no guarantees when transplanting trees, there are a few guidelines homeowners can follow to increase the likelihood of a successful transplant.

2ways 2Save

before the soil freezes. * Re-locate to the correct spot. Before transplanting a tree or shrub, test the new location in mind. Make sure the place to where the tree or shrub will be moved can provide sufficient light for the given species to thrive. In addition, check the new location’s soil pH, moisture and wind exposure. Not all areas of a property are ideal for trees and shrubs, so inspect the area before moving. Such an inspection should include examining a layout of the property’s utility lines. * Avoid drying out. Trees and shrubs should not dry out during the transplanting process. Water the plants for 2 to 3 days prior to transplanting the tree if the surrounding soil is dry. When it comes time to transplant, cover the root ball with a damp material, such as burlap or canvas, that will help retain moisture the tree or shrub needs. * Let the professionals move

larger trees. Moving larger trees is an undertaking best left to professionals. Transplanting larger trees could prove a difficult undertaking for many homeowners, and the tree could suffer greatly if that’s the case.

* Plant as soon as possible. It’s possible to store a tree and not immediately plant it, but it’s ideal to plant a tree or shrub that is being transplanted as soon as possible. If storing, avoid covering the root ball with plastic. That can suffocate the plant’s roots, putting its life in significant jeopardy. Protect stored plants from extreme temperatures, wind and direct sunlight.

* Plant properly. Planting holes should be two to three times as wide as the root ball. If planting in dry soil, prewater the holes before planting begins, and be sure to plant the tree or shrub at the same depth it was originally growing in. Also, plant the tree so it is in the same direction, relative to the sun, that it was previously in.

Did You Know? Highlighting, or up lighting, is a landscaping technique in which light from below is used to accent certain focal points in a landscape. In many instances, the light is used to illuminate a particularly impressive or unique plant. When highlighting, two or more spot light fixtures are placed at the base of a landscape component and pointed upward. While highlighting is most commonly used to illuminate plants, it can be used to draw attention to other focal points of a landscape as well, including sculptures or other garden structures. Light fixtures are aimed away from observers as a means to preventing glare, and oftentimes the fixtures themselves are camouflaged to maintain the natural beauty of the landscape.

Did You Know?

Potatoes are enjoyed world-over and make a versatile addition to any meal. Though many consumers purchase their potatoes at the local grocery store, potatoes can be easily grown in the home garden, too. Potatoes prefer a slightly acidic soil and full sun and will produce best in a loose, moisture-retentive soil. It is possible to get good potato yields in less-than-perfect soil, however. Home gardeners can begin planting potatoes in early spring, when the soil is able to be worked. Plants will not begin to grow until the soil temperature is at least 45 F. Plant only certified seed potatoes, which are available at most quality nurseries and garden centers. They are less likely to have disease than a potato you picked up at the supermarket and tried to establish. Small seed potatoes can be planted as-is. Larger seed potatoes should be cut into pieces that contain at least one or two “eyes.” Placing the seed potatoes in a warm location can entice them to bud and speed up the sprouting process once planted.

Identify All Those Pesky Springtime Pests When the warm weather arrives, people venture outdoors and animals wake up from hibernation. Many insects hatch or revive from winter slumber and can be commonly seen in and around the home.

is seen inside of the home, chances are it is a queen looking for a good nesting area in which to lay her eggs and set up her new colony. Treat bee and wasp problems early on

Once temperatures rise to about 60 F, many insects start their life cycles anew with eggs or larva hatching and winged and webbed creatures rearing their attenaed heads. It can be frustrating for homeowners facing an insect infestation, especially when bugs are found in quantities inside or around the perimeter of the home.

* Flies and gnats: Springtime may be a season when certain varieties of flies and gnats emerge from their infant stages and take flight. Certain flies and gnats bite, while others simply are buzzing nusiances.

There are many insects one might see in spring. * Ants: Small black ants, called pavement ants, come out of dormancy and begin to forage for food and nests. Although pavement ants build their colonies outdoors, they will venture inside for easy food sources. They can be nuisance pests if not quickly tackled. Carpenter ants are large, black ants that are found in and around the home. They build nests and channels in wood, so they can be particularly troublesome to homeowners for the potential structural damage they may cause. If they are seen in number inside of the home, there already may be an established colony inside of the walls. * Bees: Bees and wasps may overwinter in home attics or eaves and then come out of dormancy. If a large bee

before established nests can be created. * Termites: Subterranean termites swarm when it is warm or in the morning. Swarming termites are those taking flight to create new nests and colonies. Swarms can be scary for homeowners as they likely indicate a termite problem inside of the house. Consult with a professional exterminator if termite infestation is suspected. * Spiders: Where there are other insects, there will be spiders to prey on them. When building a nest, spiders prefer out-of-the-way places that are dark and comfortable. There are some spiders, like the wolf spider, that will actively attack insects instead

* House centipedes: It’s likely that homeowners will encounter house centipedes mostly in spring and fall because the insects are either coming out due to the warmer weather or retreating indoors to find a warm place to stay. These centipedes prefer a cool, damp place to live, like a basement or bathroom, and generally lay 60 or more eggs at one time. They feed on many different insects, including spiders. But their alarming appearance, which includes 15 pairs of feathery legs, makes few homeowners content to share a residence with them.

As humans and other animals become active and enjoy the warmer weather, so, too, do many insects and arachnids. Springtime is a common season to encounter many of the “bugs” that dissapeared when winter weather reared its ugly head.

Safety First When Building Backyard Playground for Kids Few things are as enjoyable for parents and grandparents as watching their children and grandchildren play. As cherished as such playtime can be, it can quickly turn into a memory adults and children alike would prefer to forget if an injury occurs. Playground accidents vary in severity. Some produce just a scrape or a scratch, while more drastic accidents can lead to broken bones or even death. And where those accidents occur might come as a surprise to parents. Ten years ago, a study conducted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission discovered more deaths occurred on backyard playground equipment than on public playgrounds. A 2009 study from the CPSC found that 40 deaths were associated with playground equipment between 2001 to 2008, the majority of which were the result of hangings or asphyxiations. Naturally, parents aware of such statistics are concerned, particularly those who want to erect a playground for their children on their own property. When building a home playground for children, parents should consider the following factors. Location, location, location!

A home playground’s location is very important. When deciding where to put a playground, consider its acces-

sibility. Is the playground easily reached should an accident occur? Can children be seen playing from a nearby window? Should an accident occur, is the playground within earshot of the home? Kids often play on a home playground while their parents are inside, so be sure to locate the playground close enough to the home where you can see and hear your kids from the house, and in a spot that’s easy to get to should an accident occur. Equipment Though most parents would love to build their children a home playground that rivals the nearby amusement park, some equipment has historically proven to be more dangerous than others. A 2009 report from the CPSC indicated that climbers were associated with 23 percent of all playground injuries while swings were associated with 22 percent. When installing equipment, be sure everything is installed in strict adherence to the manufacturer’s instructions. Surfaces According to the CPSC, 67 percent of playground accidents between 2001 and 2008 involved falls or equipment failure. Most kids are going to fall once or twice when playing on the playground. Parents can plan for such falls and minimize their child’s in-

jury risk by installing impactabsorbing surfaces beneath the playground. Such surfaces are the standard at many public playgrounds and can make the difference between a simple fall or one that results in broken bones or a trip to the emergency room.

FIREPITS ~ WALKWAYS ~ PILLARS ~ STAIRCASES

Inspection Kids often like to play rough, and as a result playgrounds commonly take quite a beating. Even if equipment was sturdy at installation and was installed to the letter of the manufacturer’s instructions, parents should routinely inspect equipment to ensure it’s holding up to the wear and tear of children. Ask kids to let you know immediately if anything feels loose or isn’t working properly.

Garden Tools No Green Thumber Should Go Without Gardening is a rewarding hobby and one that gardeners know is forever evolving. Organic gardening is one relatively new trend that is growing in popularity. But even trendsetters need their gardening tools, and the following tools are among the many no gardener should ever be without.

Jeffrey Luke

* Shovels: Gardening might be relaxing, but it’s no walk in the park, either. Gardeners can expect to do lots of digging, and a good shovel is essential. A round-nosed shovel is ideal for digging holes for plants, while gardeners can use the flat blade of a square-nosed shovel to edge neatly.

* Spading fork: A spading fork helps gardeners break up soil thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too rocky for a shovel to handle. Spading forks can loosen the soil, turn it over and even be used as a spreader. * Wheelbarrow: A wheelbarrow helps ease some of the physical demand associated with gardening. Rather than carrying tools one-by-one or manually lifting heavy bags of fertilizer or soil, simply toss these items in the wheelbarrow to make it easier to garden throughout the yard. Plastic wheelbarrows are durable and often much ligther than their metal counterparts. * Garden hoe: Remove weeds and work on the soil with a standard garden hoe. A Dutch hoe is ideal for larger garden areas as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better for breaking up the soil before planting, while a draw hoe is better for working between plants, such as when weeds need to be removed. * Rakes: A rake is not just effective in late fall when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to clear the yard of all those fallen leaves. Leaf rakes can be used to remove debris, such as grass clippings, from a garden, while a garden rake can be used to spread mulch and smooth out the soil within the garden.

Butterflies Are a Spring Spectacle Few harbingers of spring are more spectacular to look at than the variety of butterflies that take to the skies after they emerge from chrysalis.

Although it is widely known that butterflies and moths go through a metamorphosis to turn into their finished forms, many are unaware just how many steps it takes for a butterfly to be ready to fly.

1. A butterfly begins its life as an egg, which a female butterfly lays on a particular plant that the species of butterfly prefers to eat. This is called a host plant. Butterflies are very particular about the type of plant that they eat. Certain species will o only eat one type of plant or c closely related varieties.

2 When a butterfly hatches 2. fr from the egg, it is called a la larva, or a first instar cate erpillar. The insect is very s small and does nothing but e from the host plant. eat

3 Caterpillars are vora3. c cious eaters, and they grow v very quickly. The trouble is th their skin cannot grow. that A new, larger skin must be fo formed. To do this the cate erpillar must molt its old s skin so that the new, larger s skin can emerge. As it eats, a caterpillar will go through a few stages depending on th species. It may become the a second, third, fourth, and

fifth instar caterpillar. 4. A caterpillar that has molted several times may look very different from its initial larval form. It will be much larger and may have different colors and features. 5. During the final molt, the discarded skin will become part of the chrysalis that will house the caterpillar as it pupates. The caterpillar spins a silk girdle that attaches it to a particular location, either on a tree branch or a plant stem. 6. Contrary to popular belief, butterflies are not formed in cocoons. Their pupa is called a chrysalis. Only some varieties of moths transform inside of a cocoon. In the chrysalis, the caterpillar is undergoing a rapid transformation. The chewing mouthparts are turning into the sucking mouthparts of a butterfly. Wings and antennae are also forming. The pupa stage is not merely a hibernation for the caterpillar. It is a time of very active growth. 7. About 10 to 14 days later the butterfly will emerge from the chrysalis. Upon doing so the wings will be wet and small. The butterfly then pumps fluids through the wings to expand them. It also needs to get used to flying. A recently hatched

capitaldistrictcontractors.com butterfly is very vulnerable until its wings are ready and dry. 8. An adult butterfly eats nectar and reproduces to begin the life cycle anew. Relatively speaking, a butterfly has a short life span. Some

species live only a few days. Others may live up to a year. This can make viewing a spectacularly hued butterfly in a spring garden even more poignant for the observer. More than 700 species of butterflies are found in

North America. In order to attract them to the backyard, homeowners can plant wildlife that nurtures all stages of the metamorphosis. Adult butterflies looking for nectar will seek out plants in the sunlight; rarely do they

feed in the shade. Plants should have red, yellow, orange, pink, or purple blossoms. Flat-topped or clustered flowers are preferred, as are short flower tubes that enable the butterfly’s proboscis to fit in easily.

to find and grows quickly from seed. Commonly mixed with Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrasses are shiny with a medium to dark green turn and a fine or medium texture. It’s best to plant perennial ryegrass in the fall.

Climate is often the ultimate determining factor if a grass will thrive or wilt in a given region. Because climate plays such a big role, grasses are often categorized as “coolclimate” or “warm-climate.”

* Creeping bentgrass: Very low and very fine in texture, creeping bentgrass, like all bent grasses, is susceptible to a variety of fungal diseases, making it one of the more high-maintenance grasses. Homeowners who plant creeping bentgrass should expect to mow it frequently.

Cool-climate grasses

* Kentucky bluegrass: The most popular cool-climate grass, Kentucky bluegrass is ideal for lawns that get lots of sun. Because it has shallow roots, Kentucky blue grass is not very drought-tolerant. If planting Kentucky bluegrass, it’s best to do so in fall or spring. Kentucky bluegrass is medium-textured with green to dark green turf. * Perennial ryegrass: Perennial ryegrass is generally easy

* Shade tolerant fescues: As their name suggests, shade tolerant fescues handle shade very well. These fescues, which include fine fescues and red fescues, typically have very fine blades and can survive extreme cold as well as withstand hot summers. Shade tolerant fescues are typically medium to dark green and perform best when planted in the fall or during

spring. Warm-climate grasses * Bermuda grass: Bermuda grass is a very popular warmclimate grass as it’s capable of withstanding the heat but does not do nearly as well in the shade. Common Bermuda grass can be somewhat coarse and establishes itself rapidly. Golfers would likely recognize Bermuda grass, as it’s commonly used on golfing greens. When planting Bermuda grass, it’s best to do so in spring. * St. Augustine grass: St. Augustine grass requires at least six hours of direct sun per day. Best planted in early summer, St. Augustine grass is fast-growing. * Zoysia grass: Zoysia grass grows slower than most warm-climate grasses, but some Zoysia species also have a much greater cold tolerance. Zoysia grass has a medium green color and the texture is medium. The deep root system of Zoysia grass enables it to withstand most difficult droughts. Best planted in early summer, Zoysia grass is resistant to insect problems and disease. * Centipede grass: Light to medium green in color, centipede grass is generally lowmaintenance and performs better in shade than most of its warm-weather counterparts. Shallow roots make centipede grass susceptible to drought, but those shallow roots also make it perform better in poor soil. Centipede grass is best planted during the spring. GT114669

Climate a Key Factor When Choosing the Right Grass

Choosing a new grass for a lawn depends on more than just aesthetic appeal. Where a person lives and the type of lawn he or she has should carry more weight than how a lawn looks upon its initial installation.

Crumbling or pitting of surfaces on bricks and concrete is called spalling, and chances are it means a repair or replacement project is in your future. When concrete or brick become too soft and porous, it can absorb water and begin to crack, chip and cause pieces to break off. In most cases spalling occurs in small sections at a time, so it can be an easy repair project. But if spalling is widespread, it likely means replacement or resurfacing -and that could involve hiring a professional mason.

to scrap off the excess mortar and create a mortar joint that looks similar to the existing. Allow the mortar to cure and then examine the handiwork.

Next, carefully scrape at the existing mortar around the spalled brick. Use a chisel and a hammer to knock out the damaged brick. If this doesn’t work, use a masonry bit to drill several holes in the face of the brick and then chisel out the pieces, cleaning out the smaller debris. Mix the mortar chosen and wet the area that will be patched. Add the mortar to the area and the brick and slide into place. Tap until the replacement brick is level with the others. Use a trowel

Make the Most of Watering Summer weather can be harsh on a lawn. Even the most lawn-conscious homeowner can be helpless against a summer heat wave.

One of the most effective ways to help a lawn combat summer heat is to water the lawn as effectively as possible. This is especially true for homeowners who live in areas that frequently fall victim to drought. Such areas often have drought restrictions that limit how much a homeowner can water his or her property. These restrictions highlight the importance of watering effectively.

* Water deeply and infrequently. Light but frequent watering will not promote strong roots. In fact, homeowners who water too frequently can expect the growth of weeds. When wa-

tering, water deeply and infrequently. Deep water promotes strong, healthy roots and can significantly reduce the chances of a weed infestation. * Don’t waste water on the pavement. Be sure sprinklers are placed in spots where no water will be overshooting the lawn and landing on the pavement. Adjust the sprinkler heads so all the available water ends up on the grass where it belongs.

• Make the Deck or Patio a Shady Space • No Effect on Property Taxes

* Water early. Evaporation loss is lowest in the early morning, typically between the hours of 5 to 10 a.m. This is a better time to water than at night, when watering could lead to fungal disease.

• GO Green ... Reduce Air Conditioning Costs By 25% • Service You Deserve, Quality You Demand

* Water newly seeded or sodded lawns more frequently. Newly seeded or sodded lawns require more watering

than established lawns. This is to build strong, healthy roots. However, it’s often not a good idea to sod or seed in the height of summer, so homeowners planning to do so should consult a profes-

sional before going forward with any project. * Choose a drought-resistant grass. For those who live in areas that frequently experience drought, a grass that’s

drought-resistant could be the best option. Grasses that are drought-resistant include Bermuda grass, tall fescue and Zoysia grass. Homeowners who want to replace

their existing grass with a more drought-resistant species should consult a local lawn care professional for advice as to which grass is most likely to thrive in that particular climate or region.

Protect Interior Plants from Dehydration Gardening enthusiasts often enjoy extending their gardens to their interior of their homes. Much like exterior plants, interior plants can succumb to dehydration and overwatering. Many times, men and women with interior plants wait too long to address a plant that could be suffering from dehydration or overwatering. For a plant that’s dehydrated, don’t wait for the stems and leaves to begin wilting. If a plant has been overwatered, don’t wait to address the

issue until mold or fungi is growing on the surface of the soil. These are obvious signs of plants that are dehydrated or have been overwatered, but they’re also late signs of those problems. There are earlier indications of each of these problems that, when noticed quickly, can help save interior plants from suffering. Signs of Dehydration Dehydration can manifest itself in a number of ways. Plant enthusiasts should be on the lookout for the fol-

lowing signs of dehydration if they suspect their plants are suffering. * Slower leaf growth. If the plant is taking longer than normal to grow to its full capacity, that could be due to dehydration. * Leaves or flowers are dropping prematurely. If the plant or flower’s leaves are dropping earlier than usual, this could indicate dehydration. * Leaves become translucent. If light can pass through the leaves the

Leaf edges become brown and dry out while lower leaves curl and yellow when a plant is dehydrated. Signs of Overwatering Watering a plant can be tricky. Some plant owners water too much, hurting the plant as a result. If a plant is

being overwatered, it might begin to show the following signs.

to smell bad if a plant is overwatered.

* Leaves are falling off at the same time. When a plant has been overwatered, its old leaves and its young leaves will fall off at the same time.

* Mold forms on flowers. Moldy flowers have likely been overwatered.

* Root rot. The roots will soften and turn brown and possibly begin

* Standing water in the container’s underliner. A properly watered plant will make use of all its water. Standing water indicates it’s getting too much.

WWW.BROOKSIDENURSERY.COM Bonus Appliances to Add Kitchen Appeal

Not every kitchen is equipped with a trash compactor or wine cooler, but many homeowners are seeing the benefits of rethinking what appliances are included in their kitchen layouts and looking beyond the range or dishwasher.

Trash Compactor A trash compactor is a device that can be built into cabinetry or used as a stand-alone appliance wherever there is an available electrical outlet. Compactors have advantages over traditional garbage pails and bags in the kitchen. They can hold a week or two of garbage in compressed form, reducing the need to take out the trash. Plus, they will not become as odifer-

ous as a regular pail. Compactors also take up less space than a garbage pail and can look more aesthetically pleasing in the kitchen. Many compactors have filters and deodorizing holders inside the compactor. This will eliminate the smell that often results from decomposing foods and other debris. Trash compactors can be especially handy for individuals who live in an apartment or where space is at a premium in the kitchen. The compactor will flatten the garbage when a button or lever is pressed, reducing the volume of the trash. It may also be used with plastic and aluminum recylables. Wine Cooler Chances are a wine cellar will not fit in the average house. But a wine refrigerator can keep wine at the right temperature and humidity for optimal enjoyment. Wine coolers are growing in popularity as more wine afficionados understand how the flavor of wine can benefit from proper storage. A refrigerator will hold wine bottles and insulate them from outside temperature fluctuations. They will also be handy and ready for use when the time comes.

soiled in the dishwasher.

Most households are already equipped with a dishwasher, but the majority are a single wash area models. It is well known that for a dishwasher to operate efficiently, the entire washer should be filled before running the cycle. For many people this can take days of dishes sitting

Drawer dishwashers split the cleaning area into two unique zones. This enables a smaller load to be washed. However, this isn’t the only advantage. Drawer dishwashers can be more ergonomic, reducing the need for bending over to load the washer. Furthermore, because the two

drawers work independently of one another, one drawer can be used on a light cycle for minimally soiled dishes, while the other runs for heavily dirtied dishes -- all simultaneously.

Their unique look also makes drawer dishwashers coveted simply from a design perspective.

A Fresh Cabin Air Filter Creates ‘Breathing Room’ Inside Your Vehicle (MS) -- Let’s say you are about to take a long road trip. It’s one thing to have to clean out your car ahead of time to create enough space for you and your family to be comfortable inside. But did you know that you could also help them breathe more comfortably -- especially if some of them suffer from seasonal allergies or asthma? Breathing in dirty roadside air that enters through the vents affects everyone, particularly the most vulnerable -- those that are susceptible to respiratory illnesses. “If breathing clean air is

a concern for any reason, checking and replacing the cabin air filter should be on every vehicle owner’s list before taking a long trip,” said Chuck Kerrigan, Director of Marketing for Purolator. Purolator is a major supplier of BreatheEasy(R) cabin air filters (www.BreatheEasycabinfilters.com) to the North American aftermarket. A new cabin air filter is designed to protect the vehicle’s occupants from breathing in air that is contaminated with roadside dust, pollen, dirt, soot and mold spores and even noxious gases and

odors. Most motorists are not aware that more than 80 percent of new domestic and import vehicles sold in the United States today come equipped with cabin air filters, says the Car Care Council (www.carcare.org/node/354), an automotive consumer group. “And, it is even less likely that they know about the important function these cabin air filters perform, and yet, they are inexpensive and usually quite easy to replace,” said Kerrigan. “Just ask your automotive technician to show you an old, dirty one,” said Purolator’s Kerrigan. “One look at a clogged cabin air filter will convince you that there’s a great deal of dust, dirt, and other contaminants floating around in your car’s cockpit. Breathing in that debris can be damaging to the health of anyone, especially those that suffer from allergies or breathing problems.” Purolator BreatheEasy cabin

air filters come in two designs depending on the vehicle. One is a particulate filter, the other is an activated charcoal filter which also has the ability to filter out unpleasant odors. You can replace a used cabin air filter with either type, regardless of which was installed by the vehicle’s manufacturer. The folks at Purolator advise that a cabin air filter be changed once every year or every 12,000 to 18,000 miles for maximum benefit.

If you are planning a long road trip and are particularly concerned about roadside dust aggravating asthma or seasonal allergies in you or your passengers, check your vehicle’s cabin air filter to see if it is clogged. Clean cabin air filters protect everyone -- especially those with breathing problems -- by keeping environmental pollutants from entering a vehicle’s interior through the vents. Automotive filter supplier, Purolator, recommends replacing a vehicle’s cabin air filter every 12,000 to 18,000 miles for maximum benefit.

Replacement is usually simple for do-it-yourselfers or professional technicians and many Purolator BreatheEasy cabin air filters come with detailed vehicle-specific installation instructions. Most can be installed in about 15 minutes. The cabin air filter

may be located behind the glove box, under the hood near the windshield, or under the dash. Refer to your owner’s manual to see if your vehicle has one. And if you find it clogged, Purolator recommends you change it. Information: www.BreatheEasycabinfilters.com. EL116985
