Q: We are redoing an old farmhouse in the country using a shoestring budget, so we need ideas that look great but don't cost much. For example, we can't replace the wood floors - they were lost to a fire before we bought the house (the reason we could afford it in the first place). What do you recommend? My husband knows how to install ceramic tiles, but aren't they out of character for an ... [full story]

Q: If I want to have daisies in full bloom for an August wedding, when should I start them by seed? A: I assume you mean Shasta Daisies, but the word daisy can mean other kinds of plants too.

Q: Our condo has a picture window and a glass door leading to the patio. We have close neighbors, so we need privacy. Yet, the room is fairly small. Do the window and door have to match? I don't know what kind of curtains to put on them. A: A lot depends on the size of your room. If it's small, a matching treatment on window and door will make the room appear larger. Repetition ...

Q: My friend says he has switched to a nonchemical approach to his lawn care. He says he went fully organic because it is safer. He wants me to switch, but I am not sure that I should. A: First, we need to remember that the word "organic" is not synonymous with the word "safe." Organic gardening and lawn care practices try to be safe of course, but they can use certain products that might ... [full story]

Q: We are building a log house in the country, but not with exposed log walls all through the house. I don't like all that yellow wood, so we're having regular plasterboard walls we can paint. There will be wood in the bedroom and bathroom, in deference to my husband who really does love the woodsy look. In fact, I'm even willing to have log-look cabinets in the bath. But before I say anything to ... [full story]

Spring is coming and many of us want it to be here already. For many areas of the country, the last half of winter was not warm and mild.
