(StatePoint) Cooking from the garden
is not like cooking from the store. There’s
nothing more tasty, nutritious and satisfying
than fresh, homemade meals made from the
fruits, vegetables and herbs you grew your-
self.
Experts say that even with modest
amounts of time and space, you can grow an
organic garden plot that feeds your family
all year long.
“The simplest methods of gardening
work best,” says Barbara Damrosch, organic
gardening expert and co–author of the new
book, “The Four Season Farm Gardener’s
Cookbook,” which serves as both a garden
guide and a healthful cookbook. “There is
very little you can’t accomplish in the gar-
den if you trust the systems that are already
in place.”
Damrosch and co-author Eliot Coleman
contend that organic vegetable gardening is
not only healthful for you and your family,
but is also good for the planet and can make
a serious dent in your food expenses.
They are offering these great tips to any-
one looking to grow and cook their own
food:
• When choosing which plants to grow,
consider how much space you have. Salad
crops, for example, give you the most va-
riety in a garden of limited size. Consider
prioritizing crops whose flavor is most no-
tably lacking in supermarket varieties, such
as tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers and
melons.
• It helps to get to know different plants
on a family basis. Family groupings are
very important in planning how to rotate the
crops in your garden from year to year, and
much of the techniques that work for one
vegetable, apply equally well to its cousins.
• Don’t let weeds get ahead of you. Once
they’ve gained the upper hand, getting rid
of them can seem almost impossible. The
ideal time to control weeds is when they are
tiny, right after they first appear. Take the
extra time to plant in straight lines, which
can help with weed control.
• Veteran gardeners tend to be support-
ive resources to newcomers. Let friends
with green thumbs share their enthusiasm
and expertise with you. Or get involved in
an organic community garden, where there
is no shortage of experienced gardeners to
consult.
• Pass up the modern habit of eating any
crop, any time of year by letting your garden
feed you. Fruits and vegetables that come
from halfway around the world were often
harvested far too early and can have a dis-
appointing, bland taste. By planning meals
from your garden, you’ll become a more
creative, improvisational cook.
Eating is one of the most important
things we do, so don’t just settle for what
the supermarket has to offer. Gardening can
revolutionize the way you eat, and help you
take greater control of your family’s nutri-
tion.

(StatePoint) If it feels as though
your entire weekends are spent
mowing, trimming and watering
your lawn, there are steps you can
take to speed up your lawn care rou-
tine.
Automate
How many times have you for-
gotten to water your lawn -- or worse
yet, over-watered it? You can elimi-
nate the guesswork (and the grunt
work of dragging hoses around your
yard) by installing an automatic
sprinkler and drip irrigation system
that is based on your specific land-
scape, characteristics and geographi-
cal region.
A well-designed system ensures
peak efficiency, which means you’re
only watering your lawn when nec-
essary. This is great for your grass
and plants -- and for your pocket-
book.
New technologies are making
it even easier to optimize a water-
ing plan for your lawn, as they can
be controlled from the comfort of
your computer or from a handheld
remote you can take into your back-
yard. For example, the Irritrol PCW
Control system is a software system
that allows you to set up an irrigation
calendar for different areas of your
property. This smart technology can
even connect to the Internet and re-
trieve the day’s weather for your zip
code, and change watering time and
frequency accordingly. Homeown-
ers can visit www.irritrol.com to
learn more
Maintain your equipment
Keeping your mower properly
maintained will save you time all
season long. For walking mowers,
a good maintenance routine is as
follows:•Carefully check blades for
sharpness.
• Make sure the cutting deck is
clear of clippings. Cooking spray on
the underside of the deck will make
a new mower easier to clean.
•Check pull cords to ensure they
aren’t frayed.
• Check that attachments are con-
nected and working properly.
• If you use your mower infre-
quently, fill the tank with a fuel sta-
bilizer.
• Periodically change the oil and
perform air filter maintenance.
Less is more
It’s tempting to cut the grass as
frequently as do your neighbors. But
where mowing is concerned, less is
more. You can prevent weeds from
taking over your lawn by letting
your grass grow out a bit, as longer
grass supports a deeper root system.
If you cut more than one-third of the
grass length, you will have clumps of
clippings that lie on top of the lawn,
slower decomposition, and a less at-
tractive, bristly appearing lawn
Keeping grass longer also al-
lows it greater surface area to carry
out photosynthesis, which results in
healthier plants. In addition, taller

Creating a beautiful and bountiful garden is a popular
pastime for people all across the country. It is important to
keep in mind that aesthetically appealing plants may be ap-
petizing to area wildlife, including deer. Those who do not
want their gardens to turn into all-you-can-eat buffets for
deer, rabbits and other wild animals can take a more proac-
tive approach to gardening.
Deer are opportunists who will no doubt see your gar-
den as a salad bar ripe with all of their favorite foods. As
housing developments continue to encroach on the natural
habitats of deer and other animals, these animals are be-
coming more visible. Deer may not be able to forage for
food effectively in their smaller, natural surroundings, or
they may become accustomed to the “easy pickings” they
find in neighborhood yards. Either way, you may encounter
a deer in or around your area.
Keeping deer at bay involves some work and mainte-
nance on the part of a homeowner. There are safe and hu-
mane methods to repelling deer, or at least blocking access
to the plants worth protecting.
Fence It
--------
Deer proofing
a garden
Fence it
Fences are one way to
deter deer from entering
a yard and dining on your
garden. Keep in mind that
deer can jump fences that
are quite tall, but they have
to be especially motivated
to jump an eight-foot-tall
fence. Still, they tend to
be weary about scaling a
fence when they cannot
see what is on the other
side. Therefore, if you are
fencing out deer, choose
a fence that camouflages
the garden well and com-
pletely encloses the area to
be protected. If you do not
want the fence to be solid,
consider putting stakes or
thorny plants within the
garden so that the deer
will hesitate to jump into
the garden.
Scare them
Deer are naturally
skittish around people,
but over time they can
become quite complacent
around human beings.
Once a deer decides that
something will not pres-
ent a threat, the deer can
adapt to its presence.
Motion-activated
devices may not work,
nor the presence of pets.
Predator urine is typically
an effective way at keep-
ing deer at bay. Bottled
coyote urine can be quite
effective, although human
urine may work as well.
Reapplying the product
weekly around the plants
is a good idea.
Repel the deer
There are many or-
ganic or chemically-based
products on the market
that deer may find offen-
sive to the taste or smell.
Hot pepper, sulfur and
eggs or even the use of
soapy water have been
successful in certain in-
stances. The use of blood
meal or even human hair
around the garden may
repel the deer and keep
them on a different for-
aging path. However, re-
member that any deer that
is very hungry may ignore
unpleasant tastes or smells
for a quick bite.
Change Plants
If other food sources
are available, there are
some species of plants and
trees that deer will avoid.
Filling your garden with
these plants can help you
maintain a beautiful, al-
beit untasty, environment
for deer.
When planting annu-
als, select among: Alys-
sum, Begonias, Calen-
dula, Celosia, Dianthus,
Foxglove, Geraniums,
Parsley, Poppy, Snapdrag-
ons
In terms of perennials,
plant these items once,
and deer could stay away:
Ageratum, Anemone,
Astibe, Bearded iris, Cat-
mint, Honeysuckle, Lan-
tana, Monkshood, Rock
rose, Rosemary, Soap-
wort, Wisteria
Plant these herbs
alongside flowers for even
more protection: Chive,
Eucalyptus, Garlic, Mint,
Thyme, Wintergreen
Gardeners who use a
combination of methods
to keep deer out of their
yards and gardens may
have a higher success rate
at deterring these animals.

Termites are houseguests few homeowners want
to experience. With their reputation for voracity and
the damage they can inflict on a home, termites are
something most people want to avoid at all costs. If
termites are already a problem or something hom-
eowners simply want to prevent, there are effective
ways to banish these unwelcome guests or keep them
from ever entering a home.
Treating termites
Many people do not even know they have a ter-
mite problem until that problem has escalated. Be-
cause they remain hidden most of the time, termites
can be difficult to detect. Incidences of soft wood or
visual recognition of swarming termites that occur in
the spring can indicate that termites could be residing
in a structure or nearby. There are different types of
termites, and proper identification is necessary to find
the correct treatment option.
Unlike other pests, termites are pests whose detec-
tion and removal is best left to a professional who
can recognize the subtle signs. He or she will identify
certain signs of an infestation, such as mud-looking
material on wooden surfaces, discarded wings from
How to a treat a
termite problem
What is a termite
Termites are small social insects that have the capability to
destroy wood. Sometimes they are mistaken for ants, but the
two insects are quite different. Termites are actually close rela-
tives to the cockroach. Many termites appear as white or light-
colored and may seem translucent. Winged termites are darker
in color. Termites have a grub-shaped body but, unlike ants, no
discernable hourglass-shaped waist. Also, their antennae are
straight and look beaded, like a string of pearls, while ants have
elbowed antennae. Another way to differentiate ants from ter-
mites is that termite eyes are very small or nonexistent, while
ants’ eyes are clearly visible.
Termites live in a nest or colony in large numbers. Their pri-
mary food source is
plant fiber, known
as cellulose. Most
termites are rarely
seen unless they are
swarming or if their
nest or a portion
of wood has been
opened revealing the
insects inside.

grass grows slower than shorter grass. You
can use this fact to eliminate up to 20 per-
cent of the mowing you do annually, an av-
erage savings of about eight hours a year,
not to mention the savings of gasoline and
wear on equipment.
When you do cut the grass, be sure
you’re using great time saving equipment.
A model with great maneuverability will
give you greater control around landscap-
ing and obstacles.
With all that time saved working on
your lawn, you’ll have more time to kick
back, relax and simply enjoy your lawn in-
stead.
a swarm, piles of sawdust, termite tubes
running outdoors from the soil to a home,
buckling paint, and other indications.
There are different ways to prevent or
treat a termite infestation. To prevent ter-
mites, there are applications of termiti-
cides that are put into the soil surround-
ing a home or structure. Also, removal of
moisture in and around the house is key
because termites need moist conditions
for survival. Poisoning of nests is also a
treatment option.
If termites already have infiltrated a
home, fumigation may be necessary to
remedy that problem. However, fumiga-
tion is not always effective at killing eggs
and all of the termites. Most exterminators
will use a combination of treatments to rid
a home of termites.
If extreme wood damage has occurred,
portions of the structure may have to be
removed and rebuilt. This also may help
alleviate some of the scent trails termites
use to travel to and from nests and food
sources.
Other termite prevention tips
There are other tactics to prevent a ter-
mite problem.
* Don’t store firewood in contact with
the ground.
* Use chemically treated wood for
building structures.
* Disguise wood by painting it or using
a shellac or varnish. Termites may not like
the taste of treated wood.
* Prevent hidden entry points where
termites can go unseen.
* Remove cardboard, newspaper, cot-
ton materials and any other cellulose from
the floor.
* Vent kitchens and baths so that they
will not trap moisture.
* Fix any and all water leaks.
* Don’t plant gardens or put soil direct-
ly against a home’s exterior walls.
Some simple precautions and a routine
inspection can prevent termites from be-
coming a problem.

Where outdoor living is made easier.
Few things are better than having a functional and beautiful outdoor space
to entertain guests. Having a great outdoor space enables a person to host par-
ties or intimate gatherings all year long. Establishing an entertaining space and
maintaining that space are essential when planning another year of fun in the
sun.
There are many things homeowners can do to ensure their entertaining
space is safe and functional. As the season approaches, include some landscap-
ing and decorating components to your preparatory plans to make the space as
comfortable and aesthetically appealing as possible.
Here are a few key tips for readying your yard for entertaining possibilities.
Expand on these basics to customize an area for your unique needs.
* Check the area for any needed repairs. Prior to your first entertaining
session, look over the deck or patio to take note of any flaws that may pres-
ent safety hazards. Are there any loose railings? Are all screws and nails flush
so they do not cause tripping? Are there any cracks in concrete or loose patio
blocks? Be sure to remedy all of the repairs needed to ensure guests will be
safe. If you are unsure of any structural deficits, consult with a contractor.
* Hire a reputable contractor. If you are just laying the groundwork for
a new patio or deck, it is important to get the necessary permits and then hire
a person who has been properly vetted. Check qualifications and licensing be-
fore hiring a contractor and ask to view a portfolio of his or her previous work.
Word-of-mouth recommendations from trusted friends and family members
are good, and you can also double-check qualifications by contacting the Bet-

Many homeowners aim for a picture perfect lawn
complete with rolling acres of soft, green grass. But
Mother Nature may have other things in mind, pro-
viding homeowners with less-than-stellar growing
conditions for their lawns, plants and other foliage.
Frustration can mount when a yard is muddy, is es-
pecially shady or has soil that doesn’t seem to grow
a thing. In such instances, homeowners may have to
go the extra mile to get the yard they desire.
Irrigation Issues
Improper drainage or low-lying areas in a yard
may contribute to a muddy mess. Soil that is inhos-
pitable for grass also may end up causing muddy
patches because the grass simply does not grow. In
some cases, remedying a muddy yard is easy and
inexpensive. Some homeowners find that tilling
the soil and amending it with a fiber mulch helps to
absorb extra water and make the conditions better
for lawn seeds to sprout. This also helps to aerate
compacted soil that can hinder grass growth. Add-
ing soil fill also may help to level low-lying areas
that can be puddling.
Some homeowners find that they need to do a
little more work and spend some more money to
fix irrigation issues. Installing a draining system
or having the property sloped to draw water away
can sometimes be done by a homeowner but is of-
ten best left to a professional. You may need to dig
trenches, and the property may need to be regraded
to make a difference.
Sandy soil
Grass and other plants may not grow well with
sandy or clay soil. Again, amending the soil is one
way to remedy the problem. Although it will take
some work at the outset, amending the soil can
improve conditions and reduce how much mainte-
nance the lawn needs. Digging down several inches
and adding nutrient-rich filler soil will help create
conditions that are better for growing. Those who
are interested in planting vegetables could opt for
raised garden beds above the challenging soil.
Shade
Sometimes a yard is problematic because of the
amount of sunshine it receives. Too much sunshine
can scald certain grasses, while inadequate sun-
shine may result in bare patches where grass won’t
grow. If cost is no object, removing or planting trees
to establish better growing conditions could be an
option. However, today there are many grass blends
that are tailored toward specific sunlight scenarios.
Homeowners may find that low-light blends will
grow better in shady areas.
Shady situations may impede grass growth in a yard.

For those who are finding no luck with grass blends, it may just be necessary to think
creatively. Plant shade-loving plants, such as ferns or ground cover, where the grass won’t
take. Design the landscape so it looks intentional. Flagstone and slate placed in certain
areas also may mask temperamental growing areas.
There are different options for managing various situations in the yard that can make
growing lawn or other plants challenging. If projects are difficult, it could be smart to call
in a professional.
The benefits of
Pruning Trees
and Shrubs
Pruning trees and shrubs is necessary to ensure they maintain their
health and vigor. Trees and shrubs should be inspected annually to de-
termine if they need to be pruned. Mature trees typically do not need to
be pruned as frequently as young trees, which need pruning to establish
branch structure. Trees and shrubs that go years without pruning can be-
come overgrown and weak. In addition to promoting tree and shrub health,
pruning pays a host of other dividends.
* Pruning removes dead or diseased branches. Pruning helps a tree
or shrub maintain its shape and vigor by removing broken, dead or dis-
eased branches that can be unsightly and make it more difficult for the
tree or shrub to stay healthy. When broken, dead or diseased branches
are removed, trees or shrubs look healthier and add aesthetic appeal to a
property.
* Pruning trees and shrubs promotes growth of other plants. Trees and
shrubs that go years without being pruned become overgrown, making it
difficult for plants underneath or adjacent to them to grow in healthy. For
example, grass beneath an overgrown tree might not get adequate sun-
light, which it needs to establish strong roots so it can grow in lush and
healthy. Pruning allows plants beneath the tree and shrub and even those
next to the tree and shrub to grow in nicely.
* Pruning can sometimes bring plants back to life. Shrubs that have
gone years without being pruned can sometimes still be salvaged. In some
instances, pruning such shrubs can restore natural and healthy growth.
* Pruning reduces risk of accidents. Overgrown trees can interfere with
power lines, increasing the risk of accidents and power outages. In addi-
tion, overgrown trees tend to have larger, weaker limbs, which can prove
hazardous and cause property damage during storms. Pruning overgrown
trees reduces the risk of such accidents.
* Pruning can save money. Over time, overgrown trees might require
professional assistance in order to be removed or pruned from a property.
Homeowners who prune their trees as needed can save themselves the
cost of a potentially pricey tree service.
* Pruning adds curb appeal. A property littered with overgrown trees
and shrubs hurts a home’s curb appeal, giving prospective buyers the
impression that homeowners might have been careless with regard to
maintaining the whole house and not just the lawn. But trees and shrubs
that are pruned and well-maintained can add to a home’s curb appeal,
something that goes a long way toward impressing prospective buyers.

Remodeling a basement is a popular home improvement project. A finished basement
makes the space more functional and, when done correctly, can add a considerable amount
of living space to a home.
Finishing a basement pays dividends in additional space in a home that doesn’t require
the same level of investment as putting an addition on the house. Also, the groundwork for a
finished room is already there, as most basements are already set up with a poured concrete
floor and some walls, usually cinder blocks. Some electrical components, plumbing and the
creature comforts of drywall and a more inviting floor might be all that’s necessary to fin-
ish a basement. The process can be labor-intensive, and many people prefer to leave it to a
professional contractor. Whatever finishing method is chosen, homeowners should follow
the proper procedures when doing the work.
DO start with a detailed plan. Measure out the basement and mark any items that cannot
be moved, such as a furnace, water heater or pipes. Create a design board that showcases the
materials you plan to use on the project. Think about ways you plan to arrange furniture and
consider all of the possible uses for the room. Will it be a home theater? Will someone be
sleeping down there? Each scenario will require certain amenities and safety requirements.
DON’T plan to finish the entire basement. Doing so will leave you without a storage or
utility area where you house holiday decorations, tools, luggage and similar items.
DO get the scoop on building codes. Knowing what the municipality allows in basement
remodeling will help you to customize a plan that is functional, safe and legal. No one wants
to be slapped with fines for failing to follow the rules. Plus, failure to meet building codes
could mean the work that has been done must be torn out and redone. It pays to follow the
chain of command and secure permits while having all work inspected.
DON’T overlook adequate lighting in your refinishing plan. A basement is likely one
area of the house that has limited natural light pouring in. With traditionally small windows,
or no windows at all, a basement needs ample lighting in its design scheme. This may in-
clude a combination of overhead and task lighting. Ample lighting will help the room feel
like part of the house and not just a forgotten storage area.
DO take into consideration moisture issues in the basement. Many basements are plagued
by moisture issues ranging from water seepage to condensation forming on walls. These
situations may vary depending on the weather throughout the year. Certain materials may
need to be used to mitigate water issues before finishing can take place. The installation
of water-barrier systems, drainage, sump pumps, or encapsulation products could drive up

* Think about closing in a portion of a
deck or patio. The use of a canopy, netting
or even greenery to protect an entertaining
space can help minimize weather-related
damage to outdoor furniture. Netting will
keep a good number of biting insects at bay
when the weather is warm and humid. Hav-
ing a bit of concealment also means you
can create a private space that isn’t easily
viewed by neighbors or passersby.
* Plan well-defined areas. Just as rooms
serve different purposes inside of the home,
outdoor areas can be separated according to
usage. Establish a sitting nook where guests
can gather and talk. Have a bar or serv-
ing area where refreshments are made and
served. Make sure there is a shaded area for
when the sun is too uncomfortable to make
sitting outside enjoyable. Similarly, have a
sunny area where people can soak up a few
rays or dry off after a dip in the spa or pool.
Don’t forget to establish a spot for the kids
to converge with scaled-down amenities.
* Consider a fireplace or fire pit. For
centuries man (and woman) has gathered
around fire for socialization and a means to
warming up. Having a backyard fireplace,
pit or chiminea is a conversation-starter, a
decorative focal point, and a functional tool
to extend the number of seasons in which
outdoor entertaining can take place. Place
the fire wisely and with concern for safety.
It should be out of the way of foot traffic, but
central enough so that it can be a gathering
point.
* Invest in quality outdoor furniture.
Today’s yards are extensions of a home’s
interior. Guests no longer want to sit on un-
comfortable metal or plastic furniture. There
are many different outdoor sofas and chairs
that are as stylish as they are comfortable.
These pieces can be matched to the decor
inside your home for a cohesive look.
* Accessorize. Consider the creature
comforts of indoors and mimic that outdoors.
Don’t shy away from hanging artwork on an
exterior wall or using urns or pottery to dec-
orate the space. Weather-resistant materials
ensure everything from clocks to televisions
can be used outdoors. Think about having an
entire set of serving dishes and other enter-
taining items for the outdoors.

Summer can take its toll on just about
everyone. Even the most ardent fan of
summer eventually grows weary of a
heat wave, which can make something
as simple as walking down the street
seem exhausting.
While human beings have their ways
of surviving summer heat, such survival
can be more difficult for your lawn and
garden. Certain grasses and plants thrive
in hot weather. But when the dog days of
summer arrive, even those grasses and
plants built to withstand the summer sun
can suffer. That’s why watering takes
on such importance in the summertime,
when grasses and plants need water to
avoid drying out and possibly even dy-
ing. The following are a few basic wa-
tering techniques to help homeowners
keep their lawns going strong through
the next summer swoon.
* Water when it’s coolest. Watering
when the temperatures are their lowest
might seem counterintuitive. After all,
homeowners might think their grass and
gardens need water most when the tem-
perature is at its highest. But watering
when the temperature is cooler decreas-
es evaporation, meaning your lawn will
get the water it needs and won’t lose any
to steamy conditions that cause evapora-
tion. This is especially important when
the amount of water you can use is lim-
ited by a drought restriction. You’ll want
to make sure the water you can use is ac-
tually going to the lawn and not evapo-
rating as you’re watering.
Watering in the early morning or in
the evening, when the sun is not as strong
and the temperatures are generally at
their coolest, also reduces the likelihood
that your grass will burn. That’s because
water attracts the sun, and a lawn that’s
wet in the middle of a hot day might at-
tract too much sun and cause the lawn
to burn.
* Recognize that not all plants are the
same. How much water a plant needs
and how frequently it needs to be wa-
tered largely depends on how deep its
roots are. A plant with shallow roots
won’t need to be watered for long peri-
ods of time, but it will need to be wa-
tered frequently, whereas a deep-rooted
plant like a tree or a shrub will need to
be watered for long periods of time but
not as frequently. Research the plants
around your property to determine the
depths of their root systems and water
accordingly.
* Lean on mulch to retain moisture.
Mulch is often considered an aestheti-
cally appealing addition to a landscape,
but it serves a practical purpose as well.
Mulch retains moisture during the hot
summer months, reducing the need to
water -- a valuable benefit during a
drought restriction. Mulch also makes
it difficult for weeds to grow, which can
keep homeowners from spending hot
summer afternoons pulling weeds out of
their gardens and flower beds.
* Strategically locate sprinklers.
Sprinklers should be located so no wa-
ter is ending up on the driveway or side-
walks around your property. Watering
the concrete or asphalt is wasteful, and
that’s water that could be going toward
your plants. When watering by hand, be
sure all of the water is finding its way to
plants and not on any walkways.
Successfully watering a lawn and gar-
den during the dog days of summer can
greatly reduce the risk of ending summer
with a lawn full of bald spots and a gar-
den filled with wilted plants.

Answers to Garden Trivia from page 11
Fencing serves many purposes. Some homeowners erect a fence for privacy, while
others do so to contain pets and children. Because fencing can be expensive, some ho-
meowners look for ways to cut costs, which can be relatively easy, especially for those
homeowners willing to consider various materials when erecting their fence.
Traditional fences are available in materials ranging from wood to vinyl to metal.
Homeowners have other options at their disposal if they prefer a more natural fence.
Different shrubs, trees or grasses can be planted to create a barrier between properties or
within the property.
When choosing a fencing material, consider that even a less expensive material may
prove more expensive in the long run if it needs significant maintenance or has to be
replaced in just a few years. Therefore, the most cost-effective fencing material may not
necessarily be the least expensive one at the store. Here are some materials homeowners
can consider.
•Found material: Repurposed wood or metal can be crafted into a rustic, one-
of-a-kind fence. Materials can be found that are no cost, requiring only the cost of labor.
Should you build it yourself, this can be next to nothing. Sometimes existing fences on
another property can be disassembled and re-built on your own property for little to no
cost as well.
•Chainlink/chainwire: Chainlink fencing is one of the most economical types
of boundary fencing. The fencing comes in a variety of diamond sizes and is fixed to
galvanized pipes spaced across the perimeter of the property. Although it is some of the
least expensive fencing, it does not offer much privacy on its own. But if you are looking
at fencing simply as a barrier, chainlink could be the way to go.
•Picket fencing: A wooden picket fence is another inexpensive fencing material.
The pickets can be purchased in various heights, and this fence may be used as garden
border fencing or to mark a property line between homes. Spacing the pickets widely
apart may cut down on the number that need to be purchased, further keeping the cost
down.
•Bamboo: Bamboo is a rapidly growing grass that produces a hard wood-like ma-
terial that is used in many building applications. Bamboo wood can be used to build a
fence, but the natural plant also can be planted to form a living fence for privacy.
•Stockade fencing: A stockade fence is one of the more basic wood fencing
options. Wooden slats are placed alongside one another to form an effective and afford-
able privacy fence. Stockade fencing can be stained or painted to preserve it. Many home
improvement retailers sell panels of stockade fencing so that you can make fence instal-
lation a do-it-yourself project.
•Vinyl fencing: Vinyl fencing: Although vinyl fencing is one of the more expen-
sive fencing materials at the outset (it costs about twice the price of a wood fence), it does
pay for itself rather quickly thanks to minimal maintenance. Unlike some other materials,
vinyl will not rot or discolor. You also won’t have to purchase stain, paint and expensive
cleaners for a vinyl fence. That means once you make the investment, you will have years
upon years of maintenance-free enjoyment.

The warmer months provide ample opportunities for outdoor
entertaining or simply enjoying time spent in the yard as a family.
But moments in the fresh air and sunshine can be negatively af-
fected by the presence of flying, buzzing or biting bugs.
When the weather warms, insects that may have been dormant
during the winter begin to exit their dens and reproduce in earnest.
Many insects overwinter as eggs and larvae, and multitudes break
their dormancy at the same time as host plants. Beetles, flies,
gnats, bees, mosquitoes, termites, butterflies, moths, and many
other bugs can be seen in abundance in the spring. While there are
people who enjoy bugs’ presence as true harbingers of the new
season, others who are less enamored with flying insects, espe-
cially when they make time outdoors into an exercise in discom-
fort. Homeowners concerned about the presence of flying insects
in their yard can take various steps to manage sharing outdoor
spaces with insect life.
Prevention
Different varieties of insects begin their lives as eggs that
may hatch into nymphs or worm-like creatures known as larvae.
Oftentimes, these eggs are deposited in water or in damp areas.
Mosquito larvae, for example, thrive in stagnant water before they
turn into winged, biting insects. Keeping outdoor areas free of
standing water and ensuring proper drainage are two ways to re-
duce the population of certain bugs in the yard. Welcoming ani-
mals, such as birds and bats that feed on a trove of insects, to the
yard can naturally keep insect numbers down.
Flies lay about 50 to 100 eggs at one time. The eggs will hatch
into maggots in as little as 12 hours after being deposited. Keep-
ing yards free from decaying matter, especially around entertain-
ing areas, can limit the number of flies in the yard.
Traps
There are a variety of different traps on the market geared to-
ward different insect life. Most use some sort of attractant, wheth-
er a scent or light to lure the insects to the trap. Then the bugs fall
inside and cannot get out.
Although there are some chemical-based traps or bug “zap-
pers,” there are other more natural traps and more humane op-
tions, too. Setting traps away from patios and living spaces will
lure the insects to the traps and keep them away from you. Once
the trapped insects expire, you can bury them in the ground to
naturally decompose.
Setting traps out very early in the season will help to trap as
many emerging insects as possible. You also may be able to trap
the queens of certain insects, like bees or wasps, further reducing
the number of bugs you will see throughout the year.
Repellents
Repellents are natural or chemically derived formulas that are
worn or placed in proximity to people. These repellents want in-
sects to find them. Once found, the repellents’ smell or taste is
deemed questionable by the insects, who will then seek out other
areas to reside.
Repellents will vary in efficacy and some may need to be reap-
plied frequently to remain effective. However, they are a useful
tool when you will not be staying in one spot in the yard.
Screens
If you spend ample time outdoors, especially at dusk, then in-
vesting in a screened-in room may be the way to go. This way you
can enjoy the weather while the insects stay on the other side of
the screen. In climates where three-season swimming is possible,
some homeowners actually create screened-in rooms that encom-
pass their entire pool.
Beneficial bugs
Insects like butterflies and bees are the unsung heroes of the
landscape, as they are responsible for pollinating many flowers
and plants. Honeybees and bumblebees will generally keep to
themselves if their nests are not disturbed and can actually be en-
joyable to watch as they buzz from flower to flower. Wasps, like
yellow-jackets, can be attracted to sweet smells, so keeping sug-
ary drinks and foods covered can keep them at bay. Or you may
want to lure them to another area of the yard with a bit of raw
meat or a can of fruit punch.
Sharing outdoor living spaces with flying insects can be ag-
gravating. But there are many options at a homeowner’s disposal
to control such unwanted guests.

the cost of a basement renovation. It is essential to have a professional assess the basement
water issues prior to starting any finishing work.
DON’T simply cover up potential hazards, such as mold or mildew. Have them treated
instead. Otherwise, you could have a breeding ground behind drywall that could lead to
unsafe conditions in the home.
DO have a radon test. Radon is a hidden killer that can cause lung cancer. Because it oc-
curs naturally in the soil and water surrounding a home and is impossible to detect without
a specialized test, many people are unaware of the presence of radon until it is too late. Ra-
don may be more concentrated in the basement, where the foundation is touching the soil.
Therefore, rule out radon before considering renovation of a basement area.
DON’T limit furniture choices to one type. You may need to be flexible in your furniture
choices, even selecting modular pieces, like sectionals, because entryways to basements
may have small doorways or obstructions that make adding furniture more challenging.
DO keep the possibility of flooding in the back of your head. Homes that are near water-
ways or at low elevation may be at risk of flooding. Basements are especially susceptible
to flood damage. Therefore, think about the practicality of finishing a basement if you
are prone to flooding. If you decide to move ahead, take certain precautionary measures,
such as keeping electrical wiring up higher and using a more water-resistant flooring mate-
rial, like tile or vinyl. House important electronics and items on shelves so they are not at
ground-level.
Finishing a basement is a job that can add a lot of usable space to a home. Go about the
project in the right way to keep within budget and have a room that is safe and functional.
