The Handler System™ Project Guide: Selecting Quality Yard Tools

The Handler System™ inventor, Brad Blanchard, shares tips and advice on home and garden tools and projects.  This week he shares best practices for selecting high-quality yard tools for summer projects. It is not uncommon to begin a new yard project and realize that you need to purchase a new tool to complete the job.  Whether your wooden shovel handle has rotted out from water damage over the winter or your rake has become bent, it can be frustrating to realize you need to make an extra trip to the hardware store before you can even begin your work.  That is part of the reason I created The Handler System™.  I was tired of tools that wore out or broke after just a little while.  I wanted to develop a system of yard tools that would be able to withstand years of use, even under the most strenuous condition.  People need and deserve tools they can rely on, something that will last a lifetime. Advanced Engineered Design If you do find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having to replace your old shovel, rake, or push broom, now is the time to finally invest in a high-quality yard tool set that you know will [...]

Yard Tools for a Lifetime with The Handler System™

The Handler System™ inventor, Brad Blanchard, shares tips and advice on home and garden tools and projects.  This week he shares the reasons he designed The Handler System™ and what makes it such a unique yard tool set. The Handler System™ was invented because I was tired of having yard tools break on me during a project.  As an aerospace engineer, I value high-quality materials and precision design.  I developed The Handler System™ as a state-of-the-art yard tool set that was strong, reliable, and convenient to use. Powerful Design The Handler System™ is made out of complex, durable aerospace materials that will withstand abuse even under the most strenuous conditions.  Other yard tools are generally made from standard metal fastened to a wooden handle of some kind.  This type of design does not always hold up to strenuous conditions and will wear out over time.  Metal fasteners may rust, the wood can be damaged by sun, water, or time, and may splinter or break. In contrast, The Handler System comes pre-packaged with four powerful interchangeable heads including a dirt shovel, a metal yard rake, a leaf rake, and a shop broom.  These heads are made of high-quality materials for added strength and reliability. Ease of [...]

The Handler System™ Project Guide: Preparing Garden Beds

The Handler System™ inventor, Brad Blanchard, shares tips and advice on home and garden tools and projects.  This week he shares ways to prepare garden beds for planting. For most parts of the country, it is still a little early to begin planting, but can be just the right time to prepare your garden beds.  There are many ways to prepare soil, depending on your method of gardening.  For many people, traditional in-ground beds are an easy approach.  Others prefer to work in raised garden beds in order to protect the soil and facilitate efficient draining.  For those with space restraints, a garden may even consist of a collection of planters and pots or flower boxes on a patio or porch.  No matter what your style, with a little care and effort and help from The Handler System™, you can easily prepare your beds for seeds or seedlings in the coming weeks.

The Handler System™ Project Guide: Outdoor Living Spaces

The Handler System™ inventor, Brad Blanchard, shares tips and advice on home and garden tools and projects.  This week he shares ideas for creating or updating inviting outdoor living spaces. Yard work is not always about plants and soil.  For some, a beautiful outdoor living space is as important and relaxing as a sprawling lawn or garden.  Spring time is the perfect opportunity to create a welcoming outdoor living space or clean up an existing one.  Here are a few tips to help you get started: 1)      Consider your options and needs:  When creating an outdoor living space, it is important to consider your tastes and needs.  Do you like to roast hot dogs over a fire or are you a barbecue master?  For the first group, there are many beautiful options for permanent or portable fire pits.  For the second, consider installing a built-in barbecue or outdoor kitchen area.  Also, do you see yourself sitting under an umbrella by a pool or resting in the shade or an enclosed patio or do you prefer an open-air seating area to watch the clouds roll by or star gaze.  Decide what activities you want to do and then design an outdoor [...]

The Handler System™ inventor, Brad Blanchard, shares tips and advice on home and garden tools and projects.  This week he shares the best ways to manage ice and snow in the winter. What is a good way to keep sidewalks and driveways clear in the winter? Winter storms continue to blow through much of the United States this season, leaving many homes, businesses, and communities blanketed in snow.  While the landscape may look like a winter wonderland, it is important to manage and remove the snow and ice from walkways, driveways, and garden paths to protect the safety and well-being of the people around.  Falls are a dangerous consequence of slippery sidewalks and can lead to serious injuries.  Fortunately, owners of The Handler System™ can easily keep their walkways clear using a few tried and true methods. Selecting a Deicer There are many ways to remove snow and ice from walkways and driveways, but some are safer and more effective than others.  Most people immediately think of salt as a natural deicer, but are not aware of the environmental impact rock salt can have.   Salt does help melt ice, but it can corrode walkways and often runs off into the [...]
