Advice required with how to keep a gravel garden tidy?

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

I have a gravel garden instead of grass and it gets untidy with fallen moss and debris from trees and birds which is difficult and painstaking to keep neat.

What advice do you have regarding the best method/tools for the job to maintain it tidily?

              Parents are selling their house but refuse to make it look attractive?

              Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

              My parents have just put the house on the market. I’ve been spending at least 5 hours a day slaving in the garden de-weeding, cutting back the forest of trees and foliage and cleaning and de-cluttering the house.

              Now, they are really angry at me because I mentioned that the paint on the windows outside is terrible and the wallpaper inside is falling down in some places. I don’t know whether I’m just being paranoid, but I think especcially in the hallway where people first enter it is really important that the decor is good. It wouldnt be that expensive to strip and paint the hall and paint the windows frames outside but my parents get really angry at me even suggesting it. My mum also refuses to move any furniture round to make the rooms look spacious because she doesn’t want to be uncomfortable.

              It’s really annoying me, because I know with only a tiny bit of effort the house could look great and fresh. But my parents just can’t seem to be bothered. My mum sees it as some huge stressful mission, when to me it’s not. I am perfectly happy to do all of it myself.

              Maybe if it doesn’t sell quickly they will think about it. I hope it does!!! Do you think it matters if the house looks a bit shabby? The house is generally tidy and clutter free but looking really tired.
              The problem is they do REALLY want to sell quickly…man I wish they could go away and I secretly do it. It’s not possible though lol

                how to build a realistic fake tree?

                Friday, February 4th, 2011

                I want to remodel my daughters room to make it look like an outdoor woodsy/garden with flowers and butterflies etc. and want to put one of those fake realistic looking trees on her wall like i have seen in magazines i just don’t exactly know what they are made off or how to even get started…i do know that they don’t look like they are made of paper(which makes sense since it is actual decor that will stay up) so if anyone could steer me in the right direction i would really appreciate it!…
