If you don’t already have a Heavy Duty Waterproof 8 x 10 tarpaulin for use with your backyard and DIY tasks, you should consider one.
It has so many practical uses.
The 8 by 10 is large enough for many jobs, and small enough to fold away without taking up much storage place. I even keep one in my car.
I first bought when I was spring-cleaning the backyard shed.
I laid some of the shed contents out on the tarp whilst cleaning the inside, and when it inevitably started to rain, I just folded the tarp over and covered everything until the shower passed. It’s also useful for when I’m working up a ladder, for collecting dropped debris or for keeping tree clippings in one place to be easily tidied away later.
Some tarp measurements relate to their cut size, and are therefore a bit smaller than the quoted size.
See which of these tarps suits you best.
