  2. Re: New trees with dead trunks and new sprouts at the bottom.

    If the trunks are dead, my advice would be to cut them down and uproot the stump. The trunk is the main source of growth and if it is being cut off, there is a very little chance your trees will grow...

    Re: making a 3/4 bathroom

    My dad is working on a 3/4 bathroom in their master. I would definitely install an above shower light. If it was a closet, there probably is no window or means to have one, so the light will be...

    Re: pee stains on lawn from dog (fix)

    Sounds like you've got a good plan going. I trained my dog to go behind the shed where you can't see the stains. But to take care of the spots on the lawn before he was trained, my lawn care guy got...

    Re: Repairing My lawns

    Re: I think it is time for a new mower

    Yes, I think you are ready for the switch!
    My dad made the switch last year and he couldn't be happier. He invested in a Cub Cadet which is pretty top of the line. We have a large front and...

    Re: Tub and Shower Repair

    I would call up a professional before making any big purchases. It's always hard for me to go by whatever the local vendors have to say. They are usually not specialized in any field and rarely have...

    Re: Hardwood in Kitchen?

    I've got hardwood in my kitchen, it's white oak. It's still fairly new, we had it installed about 5 years ago. We haven't buffed it or used a poly formula on it, but it still looks great. I use an...

    Re: Diapers

    I agree with Marjorie. The thought of using them for anything other than the intended purposes is hard to imagine. Sure use them to dust, wipe, or even add a little cushion somewhere, but do not use...

    Boy oh boy do I have some experience with this! I don't have a cat but I do have a VERY stubborn dachshund puppy who pretty much uses any carpet as his own personal bathroom. I tried steam cleaners,...

    Re: Swimming Pool Safety

    I remember hearing about this on the news. It was just awful to hear. I can't say I'd let my 4 year old swim alone, but a 6 year old would be able to swim on her own and when you bring your kids to a...

    Re: Stain or paint new front door?

    Re: 12 old fridge: repair or replace

    I would replace it. Even if it is repaired by a professional, the chances are it won't be less than $100 and it is only a matter of time before it will need something else fixed. Replacing it means...

    Indeed, red flag has risen. The best way to get a reference check is to make use of review sites. But beware of these too because there are a lot of non credible sites out there that are only used...
