• We need the ground to be dry to build a pool. Will tarps keep it dry?

    We are getting ready to have a pool built in our backyard tomorrow and the ground has to be dry. We want to put tarps down on the spot it will be built to keep rain from making the ground wet, but the ground is still very slightly wet from previous rain. Would that be a problem? Would using tarps work?

  • Am I allowed to mow my lawn after 9 am?

    I started to mow my lawn, and the neighbor which has 2 pit bulls in the backyard at all hours and bark at me the whole time I mow my lawn, or whenever they see anybody or anything move they bark at it. The neighbor came out and started yelling at me, so I turned off the lawn mower so I could hear what he was saying. He started saying that I couldn't mow the lawn until 11, and that it agitates his dogs early in the morning. I told him, that It's the coolest part of the day and the best time to mow it as it's suppose to get in the high 90's today, I want to get it over with. He continued to go on about how the noise ordinance is 11 am on weekends. I didn't want to deal with it and kind of said whatever and went inside. But I was always sure it was 8 am on weekdays 9 am on weekends is when people are allowed to start making noise such as power tools, lawn mowers, generators, etc. You should see this guy's lawn, think he has mowed it once this season so far, its been well over a month since his last one and it's getting long

  • My wife is growing something.. and forgot to label it.. does anyone know what fruit or veg this is.?

    My wife is growing something.. and forgot to label it.. does anyone know what fruit or veg this is.?

    Best answer: It's some kind of gourd. Whether it's zucchini, marrow, pumpkin, squash, melon or cucumber, you'll have to wait and see. Unless of course your wife only planted one type of gourd.

  • Is it stupid to grow lettuce and tomatoes on my balcony?

    Best answer: Tomatoes are perfect for a balcony, especially cherry/grape tomatoes. I wouldn't grow lettuce, simply because it's so cheap and readily available. If you do want to grow lettuce, consider growing a lettuce you might not be able to get at the grocery store, like leaf lettuce.

  • How do I reclaim potting soil that a cat has peed in? I had a potted lemon tree that died unexpectedly last winter—now I know why.?

    Today I put some of the old soil in a planter, wet it down—and detected the 𝘳𝘦𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘺 familiar odor of cat pee. The specialty soil was, like the tree, rather expensive, and I would like to re-use it (in outdoor planters, so any remaining odor doesn't matter) as long as it won't kill my plants.

  • If I leave my shoes outside overnight, will they get chiggers in them?

    Best answer: Not chiggers. That's near weeds, tall grass, trees, and shallow warm water.

  • Is it bad to keep cut flowers in a closed bedroom overnight?

    My dad gave me cut flowers and I wanted to keep them in my room, but my mom said that it was bad because the flowers would release something and since I always have my bedroom door closed it would be bad for me. Which I don't really believe...

  • The label on Roundup Weed Killer says that it is "Rain proof" in 30 minutes? what does that mean really?

    Best answer: Once Roundup is dry, it starts to breakdown so it harms nothing. It is absorbed into the plant and goes to the roots to kill the plant/weed.
