  1. How do I remove an old metal garden shed that seems to be built on concrete?

    Hi, We just bought a house with a small garden - unfortunately a great deal of space is taken up by an old and not very pretty metal garden shed which seems to be built on a concrete foundation.

  2. How could I grow plants in a small amount of room, such as a balcony?

    I'm moving out of my house soonish, and I'm trying to plan for when I do. Since I won't be making a lot of money, and I'm into eco friendly living and all that, I plan on using a bit of space as a garden. Most of the Apartments I'm looking at have balconies, so using one of those as a small garden would work great. What I need to know, is what to grow, and how to maximize the amount of eatables for the space.

  9. What's the best way to design a perennial garden?

    I have a large space - 26' - along the front of my house. I think I'm going to make the bed about 3 or 4' in width. What's the best way to lay out my garden? Should it be symmetrical or just bunched and more free (like a cottage garden)? I'm thinking of using Delphinium, Echinacea, Daylilies, Oriental Lilies, small shrub roses (2'x3') and then some small ornamental grasses and 2-4" border flowers in the front. I think I'm also going to put a weeping redbud on the left side. Do you have any ideas for how I should do this... I'm at a loss!!!

  10. How many acres is just enough for a small farm for a family of four?

    Estimating for a family of four. Ideally, we'd like to grow and can our own vegetables, have a couple of fruit trees, and have free range chickens, a few head cattle, a few milking cows, some pigs, some rabbits. But we only need enough land to support our own food supply (I know we'll have to still buy some things from the store) If you have an animal plan, and or cost figures you'd like to share, I'd love to see it.
