These clear plastic roof panels let in sunlight so you can easily see inside. They’re lightweight, faster to install than asphalt shingles and don’t need sheathing underneath. You can cut them with a carbide blade in a circular saw. And best of all, they won’t peel or tear like shingles, and they last for decades. The downside is they’re not in stock at most home centers. You may have to special-order them.
Start by digging parallel trenches 10 in. wide by 6 in. deep and centered 3 ft. 6 in. apart. If the ground is slightly sloped (like ours was), dig out any high areas between the trenches so you can (later) place a level across the sleepers.
Scrub the floor using a back and forth motion. When the mop head is soiled enough to re-deposit dirt on the floor, rinse it out in the bucket of cleaning solution. Squeeze out the excess fluid again and continue to mop.
Scoparin, the other principal constituent, is a glucoside, occurring in pale-yellow crystals, colourless and tasteless, soluble in alcohol and hot water. It represents most of the direct diuretic activity of Broom.
Rinse the sponge mop head well under warm water when you are finished mopping. Mop the clean sponge over the floor to rinse the cleaner residue from the floor, if necessary (some products don’t need to be rinsed off).
POSTSENESCENCE CHARACTERISTICS: Plants tolerate frost, but typically die-back after severe cold winter conditions. Some branch death can occur during seasonal drought. Natural decline and senescence occurs over a period of years. Symptoms of decline in Scotch broom include an increase in the ratio of woody to green plant material, a thinning of stems, and a decrease in pod production. Eventually old plants die and topple over, opening the canopy for seedling establishment.
Push Broom Heads are available with metal, plastic, and wood blocks, as well as metal, natural, or synthetic bristles. Choose the material suitable for your specific application. Handles available separately.
Its long, slender, erect and tough branches grow in large, close fascicles, thus rendering it available for broom-making, hence its English name. The local names of Basam, Bisom, Bizzom, Breeam, Browme, Brum and Green Broom have all been given it in reference to the habit of making brooms of it, and the name of the genus, Sarothamnus, to which it was formerly assigned, also points out this use of the plant, being formed from the Greek words signifying ‘to sweep’ and ‘a shrub.’ The specific name, Scoparius, also, is derived from the Latin scopa, a besom. The generic name Cytisus is said to be a corruption of the name of a Greek island, Cythnus, where Broom abounded, though it is probable that the Broom known to the ancients, and mentioned by Pliny and by Virgil under the name of Genista, was another species, the Spanish Broom, Spartium junceum, as the Common Broom is in Greece and not found in Southern and Eastern Europe, being chiefly a native of Western, Northern and Central Europe.
Genista tinctoria (dyer’s broom, also known as dyer’s greenweed or dyer’s greenwood), provides a useful yellow dye and was grown commercially for this purpose in parts of into the early 19th century. Woollen cloth, mordanted with alum, was dyed yellow with dyer’s greenweed, then dipped into a vat of blue dye (woad or, later, indigo) to produce the once-famous Kendal Green (largely superseded by the brighter Saxon Green in the 1770s). Kendal green is a local common name for the plant.

It was the Shakers, a Christian religious sect centered in the Northeast and revered for their facility with handicrafts, who made the broom flat. The Shaker intervention—the only major update to the broom since the introduction of the broom machine—was simple but ingenious: Instead of lashing the broomcorn in a round bundle to the handle, they found that securing the corn with wire, flattening it with a vice and sewing it tight resulted in superior cleaning tool. Flat brooms offered increased control over the broom’s motion and a broadened surface area. (The Shakers also pioneered the smaller whisk broom, perfect for one-handed dusting and sweeping of higher surfaces). It’s likely that the broom in your closet today (assuming it’s not synthetic) bears almost exactly this same design.
Build the doors using treated lumber and following Figure B. Use scrap siding panels for the door panels since the middle 1×4 hides the gap. Assemble the doors with 6d nails driven at a slight angle so they don’t poke through the opposite side. Make sure the seams in the top and bottom scrap pieces are aligned before nailing them into place.
As far as the stud finder goes, textured ceilings create a challenge as to read what’s behind them. Also, ceiling joists will cross a load bearing wall. If the nearest wall to the bikes is non load bearing, the joists may run parallel to the wall.

The professionalization of broom-making appears to have begun in Anglo-Saxon England, where artisans known as “besom squires” in the southeastern region would take twigs from the many birch trees in the area, trim and then lash them to poles of chestnut and other woods. A bawdy 18th-century folk song called “The Besom Maker” makes fun of a female besom maker’s need to search the local woods for materials, and, along the way, other pleasures. The British broom trade of this region would continue for centuries alongside the various homemade techniques, and some practitioners still make brooms today, working as heritage craftspeople.
A broom is a cleaning tool consisting of usually stiff fibers (often made of materials such as plastic, hair, or corn husks) attached to, and roughly parallel to, a cylindrical handle, the broomstick. It is thus a variety of brush with a long handle. It is commonly used in combination with a dustpan.
