Fall Festival!

Are you thinking about having a party this fall?  Why not have a Fall Festival?
Cool Decorations for Cooler Weather
Not every party in the fall has to be ghosts and witches. A Fall Festival can be just as much fun and just as decorative as a Halloween Party. It’s also more kid-friendly and when done right, can be a really beautiful celebration.
Impress Guests from the Start
Make a bold first impression on your Fall Festival guests. Consider a personalized fall harvest arch near your venue’s entrance. We have several arch options that can help! Arches are a great way to welcome guests into the party and set the tone!
To add more pizzaz, why not surround your arch with some traditional fall decorations like bales of hay and autumn leaves? These decorations will help you set the tone of your Fall Festival before people even walk through the door.
Picture Perfect Pumpkins
One of the cheapest and best ways to decorate for a Fall Festival is with pumpkins. Real pumpkins are great because they are each unique and there are so many different kinds and colors. Pumpkins can be painted, carved, paired with other “fall” foods like gourds and squash, or they can simply sit in their natural state and serve as a beautiful centerpiece. There are dozens of ways to use pumpkins to decorate.
Mixing & Mingling
Don’t forget to have ample space for your guests to mix and mingle and enjoy the crisp fall weather!  We have tables, chairs and linens to help you not only provide great conversation areas, but to also help you continue your fall theme.  Choose from our wide selection of harvest colors and beautiful fall colors for your linens and accessories to further set the tone.
A good way to make sure that guests of all ages are having a fun time is with games!  Check out our selection of games available for rental and see which games your guests would enjoy! 
If you have any questions about how to throw a Fall Festival that your guests will talk about for years to come, give us a call and let us help you make your party great!  Call us at 423-246-5181, visit us online at www.actionpartyrentalkpt.com or stop by our showroom at 1861 North Eastman Road, Kingsport.

Dig a Better Hole: Plants, Posts and More

Are you planning a project that
involves digging a hole?  New plants,
posts and many projects will require you dig a hole (or holes)! The hole you
dig may be critical to your job’s success. Make sure you dig it properly.

Planting /

For trees and shrubs, the depth they
are planted can mean life or death!  If
you plant too deep, you could create a basin that can collect too much water,
which can cause root rot and you lose the plant. On the other hand, if you
plant too shallow, the roots may dry out. If you live in a colder region, the
soil can push the plant right out of the ground when it freezes and thaws in
the winter. Additionally, the planting hole must also be wide enough to allow
space for root growth.

If you are planting roses, please
note that they are especially sensitive to planting depth. If you live in a
warmer region, make sure to plant so that where the canes connect with the
roots, is just at or a little above soil level. 
If you live in a colder region, plant so that the union is below soil
level (4” – 6” depending on the severity and length of your winters. 

For holes associated with planting
and landscaping we have many tools that will not only make your job easier, but
will make it faster!  Give us a call
today to see how Action Rentals can help you!

Fences and More

If you are digging a hole (holes)
for posts, it is critical that the posts are plumb. For projects such as
decks or fences, make sure the hole is vertical rather than at an angle and the
bottom of the hole is level. The hole needs to be deep enough to support the
structural needs of the project as well as meet any code requirements. Use the
proper concrete mix, gravel or other fill material for the hole. Allow the concrete
sufficient time to cure before proceeding to the next step.

If you planning on digging out the footing area for a patio, concrete pad or
retaining wall, remember that it will require tamping and leveling for a solid
foundation. Excavations for ponds, especially those lined with flexible sheet
liners, must be smooth and free of jagged projections.

Other underground obstructions that you need to locate or consider include
septic fields and tree roots. Look up above also. Before you plant trees under
overhead utilities, make sure the plant you have chosen will not interfere with
the poles or cable. Before you dig for fences or privacy hedges, check property
lines and easements.

To be sure, digging a hole is usually not a lot of fun, especially if you’ve got
a lot of them to do. However, having the right tools will help not only speed
up the process, but make it easier for you. Shovels, spades and forks are some
common implements. For larger jobs, a digging bar, post hole digger, mattock or
pick may be necessary. Power tools su
ch as tillers and augers can actually make
digging fun. If you use the right tool for the job, the tool itself can do most
of the work. Let the experts at Action Rentals in Kingsport help you make the
most of out of your project.  Give us a
call at 423-246-5181, visit us online at www.actionrentalkpt.com or come by
our showroom at 1861 North Eastman Road in Kingsport, TN for more information.
