You can hang two or three hanging outdoor planters from the roof of your deck to add a splash of color to your entire deck. One great way to use hanging planters is to match the color of flowers in the planters to the colors in your outdoor furniture cushions. This will make your entire deck seem brighter and alive with color. For those of you who want their deck to be a little more private then hanging several planters with long trailing plants along your deck roof with give you the sense of privacy that you long for while creating a wonderful and beautiful ambiance for you to enjoy. By choosing large colorful flowers to put into your hanging planters you can create the feeling of being in a tree house in the middle of a rain forest.
Outdoor planters are ideal for turning that city patio into a country garden especially if you are renting. Using planters means that you can create your own little garden without digging up the landlord's property. By using outdoor containers of different shapes, sizes, and materials you can easily turn that dull city patio into a beautiful country garden. Choose a variety of interesting plants both shrubs and flowers. Perhaps a rose bush, and a few daisies and black eyed Susan and use them to create your own private and intimate patio garden. Remember even a small city patio probably has room for a small planter holding a miniature rose bush. So simply use your imagination and draw up a plan so you know just how you want your patio to look.

Above Ground Pool Decks For All Kinds of Pool People
When someone decides they want to install an above ground pool seldom do their thoughts include above ground pool decks. Why? Probably because they are thinking about all the time they are going to spend in the water and lounging on a deck doesn't even cross their mind. But if you are one of those people reading this article then let me put your mind to ease now that you are probably asking yourself how much more an above ground pool deck is going to cost. Not that much more unless you want something extensive. And by extensive I mean something that reaches from the house to the deck, which would probably need to be tiered.

We chose the theme because we believe this embodies what Brixton really is. We don’t believe in melting pots, we believe in salad bowls, mosaics and kaleidoscopes – things that allow individual elements to be part of a whole.
Binki Taylor was the first of our 17 speakers to take to the stage and left the crowd in standing ovation with a moving story on her childhood as a black girl fostered by an all-white family. “I know exactly what it’s like to have a voice that isn’t understood. You feel like you don’t belong. Under the skin is where I found my voice. I had to tackle how to belong from the bottom.”Rebecca Trevalyan, Sam Hall and Steadman Scott also delivered their pieces on what Brixton means to them and thoughts on improving local communities. “What does Afewee mean? It’s for the community, it’s for us. Our mission is to put belief, passion, hard-work and discipline together,” Steadman explained.

2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I spend pretty much every day in Brixton and still love just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere, mainly walking through Market Row, Granville Arcade and Electric Avenue.3. What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? My interpretation is very much a visual one. Kaleidoscopes are beautiful ever-changing patterns that develop and grow without knowing what you are going to see next. I think that hugely describes Brixton. It is such a diverse place that is constantly changing. Every day I see new developments and the way things change but still fit together and work alongside each other.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? I’m reading a few! One is “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg which is a hugely motivational read that I would recommend to anyone. I’m also working my way through the new Gizzi Erskine “Healthy Eating” cookbook which is brilliant. I’ve just finished Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” which had me in stitches throughout and gave a whole new perspective on being a woman in her twenties!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? That opinion changes daily, I have the app so constantly have a look as to what kind of talk I’d like to listen to. One that really sticks out is from this year’s TED in Vancouver by David Eagleman which we screened at the Impact Hub in Brixton. It really opens your eyes to what science can do6. What’s your biggest highlight from last year’s TEDxBrixton event? I put forward Simon Parkes as someone to approach as a speaker for 2014 and seeing him on stage after weeks of developing his talk and being such a huge fan of his story and book was a very special moment, one I will remember for a very long time.

1. Tell us a bit about your background? My role within the team is Project Coordinator. I help all the teams where necessary on a variety of tasks and have been working on sourcing the merchandise for the event.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love going to Brixton Market at the weekend: having a browse and trying all the different food there, picking up fresh bread from the Sunday Farmer’s market and have particularly enjoyed Pop Brixton this summer, especially the savoury crepes from L’Amuse Bouche!3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me, kaleidoscope means something that is rapidly changing, something vibrant and colourful which is full of energy and continuously creating something beautiful that comes together perfectly.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? I am currently reading I Am Pilgrim, a fantastic thriller entwining the lives of a former intelligence officer and an international terrorist – I can’t put it down and would highly recommend!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? There are so many amazing TED talks that I have enjoyed, but one that stands out to me is Susan Cain’s The Power of Introverts because it really examined the social emphasis on being bold, assertive and outgoing and discusses how we should change our perspective and understand the value of introverts. In our society, I think there is bias thinking that the ideal students and employees are extroverts as opposed to introverts, and I think it is important to shed light on the positive differences between the two and strive for more of a cultural balance between the two.
