OK all you master gardeners, I need your expertise. First, let me say that I live in Texas and I am trying to build a bed in an area that has hard rocky soil. A friend of mine dug out
the area to about 5 inches deep. I do not want to use the black landscaping paper. However, someone told me to use cardboard. They said to lay it on the existing rocky soil. Then to fill in with garden soil followed by a layer of several sheets of newspaper and then mulch on top. Does this sound good to you or do you have any other suggestions?
I saw somewhere a water feature using a chain link gate. The water ran down the links slowly into a small pond. It was amazing! My son wants to make one for his first home. Has anyone seen or made one before?
I need advice on how to make homemade outdoor bright solar lights to insert into a hanging light holder. This hanging lantern/container will hang off of a planter hook from a deck post. I
need 10 of them that are extremely budget friendly, quick and easy. I have some instructions on how to take apart existing solar light stakes but they are not bright enough. Any ideas on different kinds of hanging container ideas and/or how to supercharge the brightness of the solar light? All suggestions are welcome!
