With the ongoing drought, many gardeners are complaining of unwanted critters visiting their landscapes - namely, deer.
Question: I want to plant a tree small enough to fit under a power line. Can you recommend one that has good fall color?Answer: You are wise to consider the height a mature tree will achieve before you plant one under a power line.

Question of the week: My 5-year-old son plays with two other 5-year-olds in the neighborhood on a regular basis.

Is your dry cleaner still using metal hangers? If so, encourage them to switch to EcoHangers. These new hangers are made of biodegradable paper. Each year, more than 3.5 billion metal hangers end up in landfills - and they sit there for more than 100 years.

I have two white stars on my right forearm - not tattoos, scars.
Human beings are creatures of habit, and most for me are unhealthy.
Back in the 1950s, most hospitals were eerie places: Tiled walls, dimly lit hallways, gruff personnel. It would be tough to find such an old-style, stark facility in this country today.
In the fall, many trees like the maple and oak put on a showy, colorful palette for North Georgians to enjoy, but we cannot forget the beautiful evergreens that retain their leaves and needles throughout the year.
