Building or renovating a home is a lot of hard work. From the blueprints to the wallpaper there’s decisions to be made at every turn. While many first home builders or renovators depend on the experts they employ or quick decisions using the knowledge they have, one commonly overlooked yet vitally important part of building any structure is considering security. Whether it’s a home or business, you’ll need to ensure you have safely equipped your home with security measures to deter any form of theft. It’s also important to consider other factors such as whether you have kids, whether you rent your home out while you’re away on holiday (such as Airbnb), whether you have several people that require access and how you’d like to manage that and so many other variables. Door locks aren’t as simple as you might there – there is an array of choices out there and each are suited to certain situations and conditions.
We came across this fantastic infographic created by Precision Locksmiths which identifies the various types of popular locks in modern constructions, as well as the applications, level of security and ease of use all in a handy chart so you can make a good decision about the type of security both the internal, external and gated entrances to your home.

When a loved is in pain, you always want to help. Unfortunately when that pain is mental or emotional it can feel like there is nothing you can do. Perhaps they are going through a divorce, a death or some other kind of loss. A good way to provide support to your loved one is to suggest and help them to find (if they ask) a counsellor. This gives them the opportunity to talk with someone separate from the event. In the case of a devastating event such as a death or loss, often all the support network are affected and therefore less able to help. A counsellor is experienced in providing a safe place to talk as well as strategies for coping.
How can you bring up counselling? (more…)

If not, then they may have experienced trouble in their relationships or parenting issues. Whatever the problem, it’s not unusual to know someone who had sought out professional help.

Googling for a therapist in Adelaide will come up with an array of personal websites that market that individual person as the best at what they do, but how can you tell the smoke screens from the real deal?

Spring is the ideal time to give your garden its annual feed. But with so many different products and formulas around, how do you know which one to use? Jennifer Stackhouse shares her tips on fertilisers and when to use them in your garden.
This is the first part of the “Gardening Tips” series, brace for more tips in the future.
Soil and sunshine work together to make plants grow. In nature, leaf litter, animal manure, and other goodies that fall on the soil continually break down to replenish soil nutrients and keep plants growing. In a garden, it’s a whole different ball game, where plants are often competing for nutrients and replenishments, gardeners needs to add fertiliser to the garden soil or potting mix to keep their plants growing.
Whether its organic or fertiliser to your soil, you provide them with three basic building blocks, which are nitrogen (N), phisphorus (P), and potassium (K). Packaged fertilisers list the amount of these building blocks, often showing it in a ratio format.
It’s quite complex and varied on the way plants use the nutrients provided. Some neeeds more of one nutrient, but little of another, while others needs a three way split. Understanding which nutrient does what gives you a rough guide to selecting the right fertiliser for your plants.
Determining the growth patterns
As a general rule of thumb, nitrogen encourages leafy growth, phosphorus stimulates overall growth and plant development, while potassium assists with flowering. Lawn food, which are designed to stimulate leafy growth, have much higher levels of nitrogen compared to the levels of phosphorus and potassium they contain.
A plant food for general garden plants may have the equal ratio of N,P, and K, to encourage growth and flowering.
Citrus food on the other hand, has smaller amounts of nitrogen and higher amounts of phosphorus and potassium. Most native plants can’t tolerage high levels of phosphorus, so the NPK ratio for a native plant food will show little or no phosphorus.
Fertiliser products that are derived directly from seaweed have little or no nitrogen but are rich in phosphorus and potassium.
As well as the top three nutrients, plants require smaller amounts of other elements including sulfure, calcium, and magnesium, which all play an essential part in plant growth.
Some additional elements are also needed in very small quantities and are referred to as trace element. They work to correct the occasional deficiencies in particular plants or soils. Trace elements, which include, zinc iron, boron, copper, manganese, and molybdenum are usually packaged and sold together.
But not all nutrients stimulate plant growth alone. Products such as humic acid, compost and organic matter encourage the growth of microbes in the soil, which in turn aid root growth. These products can alter soil pH, improve drainage and create a better texture.
