Product innovation The team at Queensland Kitchen & Bathroom Distributors have been busy over the last few months perfecting a new and revolutionary product. They are manufacturing a lightweight composite 45mm stone benchtop in their Beerwah workshop. The benchtop consists of 6mm re-constituted stone over a light weight substrate. Using this method opens up huge options for future use. The possibilities for this product are endless, including a growing interest from the caravan industry, as well as double story or high-rise buildings with access issues and the additional benefit of reduced overall weight when installed. These benches can also be supplied to the cabinetmaking industry and installed by the cabinetmaker with the kitchen. This reduces the inconvenience to the client by not having to wait up to a fortnight for the stonemason to install solid stone benchtops after the kitchen cabinets are installed. The stone sheets come in 36 colours with a high gloss finish. The team are very excited to be able to offer this product at both retail and wholesale. Please call 5494 0522 to find out more, or visit their display rooms at Unit 1/5 Beerwah Parade.

Prepare your home for storm season RACQ is telling Queenslanders now is the time to Get Ready for storm season, urging them to be prepared for wild weather before it hits. RACQ’s Paul Turner said people needed to be safety conscious with both their homes and behaviour as RACQ Get Ready Week kicked off. “Queensland summer storms generally come and go quickly, but their affects can last for years – so people need to be across safety advice and take it seriously,” Mr Turner said. “There are some simple steps which will help safeguard lives and property when a weather event hits. “At home, make sure you’ve cleared the yard of debris, packed an emergency kit, have an evacuation plan and ensure your insurance is up-to-date and covers what you need most. Mr Turner said Queenslanders should tick off these safety checklist items: • Check home building and contents insurance • Clear gutters and downpipes, trim overgrown branches. Do not attempt to trim trees near powerlines • Check the roof for damaged or loose tiles and sheeting • Remove or secure loose items from the yard that could become projectiles • Join an Early Warning Alert service Have an emergency kit including a battery-operated radio, a reliable torch and spare batteries, canned food, can opener, water, a first-aid kit and blankets. For information on the RACQ Get Ready campaign: https:// getready.qld.gov.au.

Beat the mad rush of summer and service your garden equipment now! Now is a good time of year to consider servicing your garden machinery before the mad rush of summer. Make sure your mowers, brush cutters, blowers, and chainsaws are clean and fully serviced before you need them for the summer growing season. Did you know that it is not advisable to keep mixed 2 stroke fuel in your outdoor power machines for longer than two months? After limited use during the slower winter months, all machinery needs a look over, both for safety and to ensure they work when you need them. The fully qualified staff of Beerwah Small Engines are always more than happy to assist customers in regard to maintenance advice. Operating since 1977, the business has been owned and operated by the same local family for almost 40 years, providing customers with the security of dealing with an established local

business that is always happy to help with any general questions, as well as sourcing specialty items as needed. Quality personalised customer service is key with the store staffed by eight local employees. For convenience, a pickup and delivery service exists for ride on mowers and their sales team includes a qualified mechanic, to answer any technical queries. Beerwah Small Engines sell quality products including Stihl, Hustler, Greenfield and Masport that are built to last and can be serviced and maintained year after year. The business carries a large range of spare parts for the products they sell and their fully equipped workshop is always in demand for service and repairs. So beat the rush and head over to Beerwah Small engines to ensure your summer garden maintenance is stress free.

Don’t cry over Bindi-eye

Over the winter months, Bindi-eye will have been germinating and slowly growing in your lawns, and pretty soon, it will form the nasty little prickles that make you do the Bindi-eye dance in summer. Now’s the time to do something about them. If you have a small problem, you can easily hand pull them. If it’s a major infestation, you will have to fall back to using a herbicide. Don’t use a glyphosate (or a ‘roundup’) type product otherwise you’ll kill the grass and end up with a much bigger problem than you started with. Choose a ‘selective’ herbicide – i.e. one that kills broadleaf weeds but not your lawn. But choose one that’s right for your type of grass. If you’re not sure, take some of your grass down to the local hardware, produce or rural store and ask them there. Use a proper garden sprayer – not a watering can or a small household water sprayer. Note the mixing rate recommended on the label … using more doesn’t make it work better and can damage the lawn or be a risk to you, your pets or native wildlife. Spray a day after rains or after watering the grass. This way the Bindi-eye will be fresh and will readily absorb the herbicide. Don’t spray if it’s going to rain within four to six hours. Once they are dead, fertilise the lawn to strengthen the grass, which will in turn help keep the weeds at bay. And enjoy walking on the grass this summer.
