    "My thanks to Chris and Damon for their nice work on my house. They worked hard, got things done in the time they had predicted, and were polite and professional. Their work was very good- the living room ceiling looks fabulous, as there was quite a bit of water damage before. I am very pleased with the results, exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much."

  • How To Build A Compost Bin

    [caption id="attachment_7400" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Compost Bin"][/caption]

    Looking to put a compost bin in your backyard? If you want a place to throw those coffee grounds, banana peels or egg shells besides the trash, tossing them in a compost is a much better option. Here is how to build a compost, and if you need help making one, contact your Cleveland Contractors Reilly Painting.

    Difficulty: Easy All cuts are straight, and the bin is simple to assemble

    If you love to garden, nothing feeds your plants better than compost from your very own backyard, and its price (free!) is impossible to beat. But the pile itself isn’t exactly an eye-catching feature. Though you can buy a compost bin made from budget-friendly plastic or even chicken wire, a wood bin, typically made of rot-resistant cedar, will conceal those yard clippings and kitchen leftovers without sticking out like a sore thumb on your landscape. The gaps between the wood slats let air circulate around the pile to keep odors at bay and ensure that wastes are breaking down; removable slats, front panels, or doors make it easy to turn the pile and remove compost when it’s ready to spread. Follow these directions to make a rustic little structure that will help you keep your yard thriving year-round.
