  5. I need to get rid of tough weeds so I can plant vegetables. Any ideas?

    I am trying to plant a small vegetable garden, but the plot has been overrun for a few years with dandelions and crab grass. It's basically carpeted in weeds! What's the best way to get rid of them? I thought about chemical weed killers, but I don't know how long I'll have to wait to be able to plant veggies and have them survive. Any help appreciated.

  1. Where can I find inexpensive, natural looking artificial stone for my cichlid tank?

    I have searched and searched online, and found some very intersting ideas on how to make them, and found some small rocks, but I am having trouble putting it all together. There isn't really any stores around so I can place the rocks together before buy them. I don't want anything too heavy, so I am kind of ruling out real stone. I need more hiding places for my fish!!! I am hoping someone knows of a website that I haven't come across.

  2. How would I build a mini waterfall, rock garden, and plants for my desk?

    I have seen desk waterfalls for sale, and of course plans. But I'm thinking almost a mini-tank with a few water plants, with a waterfall that falls into it, with rocks around it. Wouldn't that be fantastic to have on your desk?! Any ideas on where to buy such a thing? Or to buy something that I could easily modify? Or how to build one? Thanks!

  3. Plant seems over watered and underwatered at the same time?

    The leaves look dry and brown at the edges but some of the roots have root rot. These are my work plants and I'm starting to get blamed for killing them. I have no idea what I am doing and half of them are sitting in a pot that has a ton of small rocks sitting on top so it's hard to feel the soil. I only water them once a week and they still seem to be wet. What the heck is going on and what do I do? Thanks in advance!

It has large and small rocks and cactus growing everywhere, I would like to redesign the position of the rocks (maybe in clusters) and maybe plant ground covers in between the craves of the rocks, need ideas.
