I have almost 1/3 of an acre backyard that I will be re-establishing soon, and one of the projects will be a 2-3 ft tall retaining wall that will be approx. 25 feet in length - it will be very visible! What are some attractive and less costly ideas? (I'm putting tiers into a sloped yard hoping to correct the drainage problems.) the concrete is gone and the sand will be mixed in with new top soil and mulch. The wall will follow the far curve and extend out 10-15 ft.
work, so today got smart and sprayed repellent all over before going out. BUT, since I often open the door to let my dogs in and out, it seems that the little monsters (the mosquitoes, not my dogs) feel free to fly into the house. Big ones I can see and swat, but there are often TINY ones hovering around that are sly enough to evade discovery. What's the best way to keep them out or to eliminate them once they get inside? The tiny ones bite just like the big ones do. :-(
I bought this 2 yrs. ago at a garden center in a small pot on clearance w/ no I.D. tag. None of my gardening neighbor's can identify it, it is now 10x 's larger than when I got it. It doesn't seem to flower but does have some kind of spike come up the center in mid-summer and it has varigated leaves of yellow, green, and white.
