Q: I have some very boring builder-grade honey oak kitchen cabinets that I would like to dress up. I have seen cabinets with glass doors instead of solid ones and I want to replace a few of mine.

If young trees are given a lot of nitrogen fertilizer then new growth will be pushed at the expense of flowering.
All it really takes for a sparkling, clean pool is a bit of knowledge, weekly water testing and minimal muscle work, like weekly vacuuming and brushing the pool surface.
Desert climates are notoriously low in humidity, particularly as the day gets warmer, so we enjoy fewer plant diseases and worry about them less than in places with humidity.
Homeowners increasingly seek to create outdoor spaces for gathering with others.

Months of quarantining gave people a chance to really look at their lives and homes. Homeowners are staying in their homes longer and that is fueling a boom in remodeling and redesign.
Plants like mesquite, palo verde and acacia are xeric in their water use. They use less water than alternative trees and shrubs and are controlled with applications of water.
Peel-and-stick vinyl tile backsplashes look great in kitchens and bathrooms. Installation is a relatively inexpensive ordeal. And it’s easy.
Q: Several of the drains in my house are backed up. I have tried plunging the toilet and clearing the drain trap in the sink, but I can’t get it to drain. My neighbor has a cable drain machine with several attachments included, but I’ve never used a device like that. Can you give me the details?
Weed control is the No. 1 pest problem for farmers. Pests include insects, diseases and weeds, not just insects.
The three worst weeds to control in home landscapes are common Bermuda grass, nutgrass and palm seedlings. Controlling common Bermuda grass and nutgrass organically requires persistence — knocking them back as soon as they appear until they finally start surrendering around late summer.
