I have a water leak that has come from our kid's toilet upstairs into our living room downstairs. Will a plumber fix the leak and the ceiling, or just the leak? Also, what am I looking at paying for this? I need to set it aside.

But wouldn't the handyman (it looks like this may be the best way to go) have to get in to the
I would love to figure out a way to record the home fixit show and play it at other times of the day (like when a certain conservative talk show host comes on later in the afternoons). Has anyone ever done this? If so....how'd you do it?

Thanks...I forgot about thrift stores and Radio Shack. :)
This is my first time attempting to grow tomatoes and peppers. I have a couple of issues
I'm having that I could use some advice on. These are planted in full sun near my front door. It has great drainage and compost underneath the mulch.
I recently found some brown/yellow spots on the sides of my peppers. I believe it is sunspot, but wanted your opinions and advice. I was hoping for red peppers (i don't like green peppers)...is there a way to ripen them off the vine?
My tomato plant is producing nicely, but the plant is now showing signs of wilting and browning. I water almost every evening.

Cool...I'll try. hey, I was thinking of putting an "umbrella" over my peppers to shade them
Area in front of my house we let the weeds grow wild, all for leaving things for tomorrow (procrastinate)..i'm going to do it myself because my budget don't rich to paid a professional.
I all ready pull all the weeds ( the easy ones) but since it has rocks and many years no taking care of the weeds, roots are all over underneath the plastic ( the one that they place to set rocks ) what I should do?? to clean everything and get my garden going.. thanks for everything ...

sheet composting aka Lasagna Gardening! It worked well for me! Lay down cardboard on top of
the weeds and wet thoroughly. Layer on compost materials (greens, food scraps, newspaper, etc) and top with mulch. Let it decompose over time. If you want to plant, cut holes in the cardboard and place your plantings in the opening. organicgardening.about.com/od/.../a/lasagnagarden.htm
I posted a bit ago about clearing the whole garden and sodding over. Now, after seeing that that would be WAY too expensive, I think I may just try and work with what I have. I think I
may just cut everything down to the stumps and clean the weeds. Then, see what comes back and prune it. There are a couple of unintended trees that some squirrels planted. I think I can remove them relatively easily. The rest I can trim.
Has anyone done this and does it sound reasonable?

It turns out that hubby wants to clear cut and remove everything (except the tree) and mulch
I have a landscape project that I want to have done in my yard. First, I wanted to know if anyone knew a ballpark figure of what it might cost, and if anyone could recommend a good
landscaper in the Alpharetta, GA area.
I have an overgrown garden in my front yard. I want to clear the whole thing and sod it over. Maybe I'll keep the tree in the center (the boys want something to climb), but I want the rest gone. If I had my way, I would transplant the bushes to other places in my yard, but if it is easier, I'd just as soon get rid of the whole thing. The tree must also go. It is really ugly and has horrible prickly seed pods that fall everywhere in my yard.
I'm thinking it may cost somewhere around $1,000, but that may not be anywhere near what it would be. Any suggestions and recommendations? BTW, I'd do it myself, but I'm a total black thumb and don't have the time to devote to it.

we may just suck it up and leave the tree. Or invest one day to get rid of it.
