Lazebnikov can set a rhythmic pattern of alternating water temperature. “Think of it as temperature therapy,” he said.

requently, I receive calls from homeowners who would like a tree that will not outgrow a residential lot. The native live oak, a tree that performs well in many settings and soils, simply becomes too large for many of these properties. There are some good alternatives, so I asked the Marion County Forester if he would prepare a list of smaller native trees that perform well in Central Florida. The following recommendations are some of the trees that appear on his list. Spring is a good time to plant trees because they will have the summer rains and warm temperatures to get established. This time of year presents the longest period a tree can have to push new roots before entering the dormant season next fall. If you plant a new tree, follow the recommended practices. Select a site that has at least six hours of sunlight a day, and one which allows for future growth of the tree. Most trees prefer welldrained soils, so if you have a site that is moisture prone, your selection should be limited to trees that are tolerant of wet sites. When making your selection at the nursery, choose carefully. Select trees that have good form and structure for that variety, with branches that are well attached. Check for trunk taper and firm rooting. Select trees that have a good root system, but are not pot-bound. Prepare your hole properly, digging slightly shallower than the depth of the pot and twice as wide. Break up the root ball

A After 15 years in his Rockvil ville, Md., home, Lazebnikov said the bathrooms bath were outdated and needed something, some well, a little splashy. Now showering in the upstairs bathroom is a digital spa experience. “It’s really like in a car wash,” he said. Technology has become commonplace in many American homes — particularly in the rooms where families consume their media, with devices that allow them to program their music and TV from their smartphones, and in the kitchen, with refrigerators that tell them when they’re low on milk. But now it’s starting to catch on in the bathroom. A fall 2013 survey of 7,600 homeowners by Houzz — an online community focused on remodeling and design — found that 60 percent of people are renovating bathrooms and many are upgrading to include the latest technology.

Lazebnikov and his wife, Margarita, live in a modest townhouse, and he says he “likes all sorts of gadgets that can be adjusted for the heck of it.” Lazebnikov, a software systems manager, purchased and installed the latest high-tech products himself. “It’s my hobby. I do it over the weekends,” he said. A digital valve with five control panels is connected to both their smartphones and enables them to personalize every aspect of the shower. The devices can be pricey: The Kohler DTV system with rainhead, four body sprays, fixed head and hand shower typically retails for $4,500; add another $12,000 for the media package. “Water comes at you from all sides and above,” said Lazebnikov, pointing to various ceiling and wall water tiles from which the water flow and pressure can be

HOLMES: ‘Weaver’s White’ is a dogwood variety that grows well in the South Continued from 4H before inserting the tree into the hole to ensure roots do not continue to circle. Check to be sure the tree is standing straight and that it is sitting 1 or 2 inches higher than the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole with the material that comes of out the site, rather than incorporating peat moss, compost or other soil. While planting, periodically inject water into the backfill to eliminate air pockets. Finally, form a berm of soil around the tree, about 4 feet in diameter and 8 inches high. Fill the berm with water to the top of the berm, then cut off the water and

allow it to seep through. Do this every day for the first two weeks, unless we have heavy rainfall, then every other day for the following three weeks. Eventually, the goal is to water twice a week until the June rains begin. The following are some smaller trees to consider: HOLLY: There are many varieties of holly. A tough plant that will take cold and drought conditions, these are evergreen and many species can produce colorful berries. Remember that only female holly plants will produce fruit. RED MAPLE: The red maple is capable of growing to a large

size, but often will fit into more restricted growing areas. Red flowers appear early in the spring. Some years, the fall foliage, which may not color until Christmas or New Year’s, can be brilliant. For those with wet sites, red maple is a tree that will tolerate moist conditions. HAWTHORNE: Another selection that tolerates both moist and dry soils is the Hawthorne. These have small, lobed leaves and many produce white or pink flowers. There are several varieties of Hawthorne, so do some homework prior to making a final selection. WAX MYRTLE: This low-growing evergreen shrub can be pruned

up as a small tree. A droughttolerant selection, the leaves give off a very fragrant odor when crushed. DOGWOOD: This tree exhibits white “flowers” during the spring. These “flowers” consist of four bracts which subtend the small head of yellow flowers inside. Reaching a height of 20 to 35 feet, the dogwood prefers moist (but not wet), partly shaded conditions, but will tolerate full sun. It will not tolerate drought, so supplemental irrigation may be needed during excessively dry periods. “Weaver’s White” is a cultivar that seems particularly adapted to the South. There are additional choices

on the County Forester’s list, and the Extension Office will be glad to email a copy. Remember, there also are some non-native small tree selections that will perform admirably in North Central Florida conditions. The longer, cool days of spring are a great time to explore local gardens for small tree cultivars, make a list of favorites, then find them and install them in your yard. The result will be small trees that will add beauty and value to your home. David Holmes is Marion County extension director. Contact him at david.holmes@ marioncountyfl.org.

Five terrific ways to use trays I

Home inspector cannot enforce codes

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

f you went on a scavenger hunt for a tray in my home, you’d find one in every room. Here are my favorite ways to use trays in my home to keep my life organized and beautiful: STAGE BEAUTIFUL DISPLAYS: There is nothing more fun for me than dressing up bare tabletops with beautiful displays. Nine times out of 10, those displays are built on top of a tray. Trays make the perfect stage. Magically, when an MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE odd assortment of accents Trays are a great and stylish way to keep your home is placed together on a organized and beautiful. tray, the individual items suddenly come together dinner. with one voice and have a KEEP THE KITCHEN ORGANIZED: Try using a tray as a Since I’m not a cook, I am powerful impact. backsplash in your clueless about the differTrays also ground a kitchen.

and a silver candy dish displaying napkins. ACT AS ARTWORK: My definition of “artwork” is very broad, and stretches to include just about anything I find delightful and can somehow manage to hang on my wall. Trays definitely fit in this category. All you need is a large plate gripper and your tray is ready to hang. Another way to treat a tray as a piece of art is to use it as a backdrop for a tabletop display. My friend Anne placed a very simple tray against the wall next to her stove to frame a white jar. The lines of the tray mimic those of some plates hung above the stove. Poetry! ELEGANT ENTERTAINING: When you are entertaining guests or just want to make your daily life more beautiful, trays can be your best friend. Food is so much lovelier when presented on a tray — and so are drinks. Trays also are great at anchoring place settings on your dining table, keeping individual elements like silverware and linens tucked up tight. A common mistake people make when setting up buffets is to place all the food on plates and platters that are the same height. It’s functional, but not very fun. For a table service exploding with drama, use serving tools like glass compotes that allow you to display food at a variety of different heights.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

do you know Q:What about codes? When

my house was inspected, the report said I needed to fix several items that were not up to code. My house was built in 1969, and over the years, all the work I had done was by reputable contractors. I had a new water heater installed in 1987, and a new furnace and air conditioner installed in 1993. There was never anything replaced for the plumbing or electrical, yet I’ve been told I have to put new outlets in the kitchen and bathrooms, and have to replace the glass over my tub. I’m just wondering why this was not told to me before by my contractors. The job of a home inspector is to provide a potential buyer with information concerning the structure and mechanical items in the home that could, if left unrepaired, affect the buyer’s finances or health. The inspector is not a building code official and cannot enforce codes, which are under the authority of a state, county or city. Codes often are changed or amended over the years as new discoveries or new products are introduced to the building trades. I don’t know anyone so well educated that they know all the past and present codes. There also is the problem with giving advice on a code that was not in effect when the home was built. In your case, a home built in 1969 did not have GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets for the

A:

kitchen and bathrooms, because these lifesaving devices were not available to builders in the 1960s. I will assume the glass over the tub is not “tempered” safety glass, and the inspector wants it changed to meet code. Again, tempered glass was not commonly found in homes from the 1960s. It is impractical and unreasonable to ask a homeowner to bring everything in the home up to code every time the home is sold. Only the state or local building officials can mandate codes, and this usually only happens when a permit is filed for remodeling or repairs, not during a sale. The home inspectors I talked with will make recommendations for older homes, such as adding GFCI outlets for safety reasons, but they try to avoid using the term “code” unless they can identify the code by number and date and produce a copy of the code when asked. For information on “standards for home inspectors,” go to www. ashi.org/inspectors/ standards/standards.asp.
