I'm removing wall paper from my kitchen wall. I plan to paint the walls, and then add a rail of sorts so the chairs around the kitchen table won't bump into the wall. I'm not sure what
kind of paint was on the wall before my parents added the paper, but I think it might be a semi oil based paint, anyway, is there anything special I need to do to the wall, other than the usual, filling in the holes, smoothing it, making sure all the glue and paper is removed, before add a flat paint ????
I appreciate anyone's suggestions :)....thank you ;)
Ok, it's not really crap grass, just the name I come up to call it. It's a really fine grass in my front yard, I've covered most of it with the rubber tiles in my patio, but I have quite
a bit left over. The grass is really fine, not even worth mowing over, and I can't do that since I've made the mistake of planting canna lillies in it (STUPID< I KNOW), but I still want to kill it to make it easier to dig up so I can plant more lillies or some other kind of plants ....
so my question is what can I put on the grass that won't kill the lillies and dogwood tree in the same area. I've tried the spray stuff that you put on grass surrounding ornamental plants, and it's suppose to kill the grass....it doesn't work on the grass I'm talking about....
I bought a new "welcome" post with a hanging "bench seat" that I can put a plant in the seat or just put bird seed, since at the top of the post is a bird house, haven't decided which I will do,
Anyway; I have a question, I want to treat it with a waterproof stain or shalac (sp) so it will take the weather of South Georgia, too much sun, heat or too much humidity, and also, the bugs that I'm sure will attack the wood as soon as I put it in the ground.....ANY
SUGGESTIONS for the BEST WATERPROOFING/WEATHER PROOFING and BUG PROOFING :)))).....??????? the picture that is posted looks like the wood on my birdhouse/post.....
I'm making a sort of "patio" in my front yard with a garden, it's still in the works, need to pull up the grass beside the driveway...it's a bugga boo to do that kind of work. I've
planted some day lillies, canna lillies, etc in front of the patio. I'm still working on the patio, need 6 more tiles (bought out all the existing ones yesterday on Saturday from Lowes)...the tiles are made of recycled tire rubber, so I'm hoping they'll last atleast 5 years before they need to be replaced.
I don't know what is the cheapest kind of mulch to lay down around the plants though...any suggestions? I live in the south, so the biggest problem I can see is maybe increased mold and mildew in the mulch, or would that even happen?
