Gardening’s benefits jibe with emphasis on wellness Dean Fosdick

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Modern gardening isn’t just about growing plants – it’s part of a movement toward personal and family wellness that includes everything from diet and exercise to a clean and livable environment. “A lot of things are going on with wellness as it applies to our food culture,” said Helen Lundell, a senior consultant with The Hartman Group Inc., a company in Bellevue, Washington, that studies consumer, food and beverage trends. “The essential theme is that consumers are moving toward natural foods. First and foremost is the absence of pesti-

cides and chemicals used in production.” But gardening fits the moment in ways beyond healthier food, she said. “People want to exercise,” she said. “They want to connect with nature. See GARDENING, Page 4D

They want to socialize. They want to have some private time and disconnect from social media. They want long-term weight management rather than crash diets.” All of those can be benefits from gardening. A trend toward outdoor living has blossomed in landscape design, and is also health-related, said Missy Henriksen, a spokeswoman for the National Association of Landscape Professionals. “People are recognizing that being outdoors benefits wellness,” Henriksen said. “They feel better when they interact with nature, even if it’s simply looking through a window.” If you’re remodeling a deck or patio, Henriksen said, consider adding creative lighting, wifi, TV connections, and shelter from harsh sun and wet weather. “Not only for nighttime use, but more people are working remotely from home and they’re doing it outdoors,” Henriksen said. When planning the garden, she recommended nature-scaping with pollinator-friendly plants (“Attracting wildlife is a great educational tool for kids”) 4D and including edibles.

“People are recognizing that being outdoors benefits wellness.” Missy Henriksen

National Association of Landscape Professionals spokeswoman

“People look at their landscapes and think they’re attractive, but they may be missing some personal benefits,” Henriksen said. “Herbs, fruits and vegetables add texture, color and variety to residential landscapes.” You also can hardscape to fit family lifestyles as they evolve. Include badminton or bocce ball courts, chessboards, pools and spas, fire pits and yoga spaces. Aside from their immediate satisfaction, these also may pay off when selling the property. Try your local university Extension office if you need help. “Family health and wellness has been the mission of Oregon (State University) Extension for over 100 years,” said Stephanie Polizzi, a registered dietitian-nutritionist with the university. “Our field faculty and campus specialists have expertise in nutrition, community food systems, physical activity and community engagement,” she said.

nating waste at every step of the way,” she says. “Unavoidable waste needs to be turned into resources, and IKEA needs to generate its own renewable energy. The goal of producing as much renewable energy as IKEA consumes has been set for 2020.” In London, designer Micaella Pedros is experimenting with melted plastic bottles as a replacement for bolts and screws for furniture repair. Weaver Green, in Devonshire, England, has created yarn from recycled bottles that has the look and feel of wool. It’s used to make durable rugs, cushions, footstools and blankets. Designer WooJai Lee is experimenting with a brick made out of pulped newspaper that can be used to craft benches and tables. And a Danish firm, NewspaperWood BV , has developed a product that can be cut like wood, with grain and texture. Peugeot worked with it on a concept car; the material was used for door panels and dashboards. Berlin-based material designer Sophie Rowley regards waste streams as “a future quarry, a starting point rather than an end point.” She re-engineers Styrofoam, glass, paper and textiles into items like side tables, with the waste materials transformed into beautiful flow patterns and textures.

The Earth is awash in garbage, and designers of home decor are looking at ways to reuse the waste. Among the many clever ideas emerging are tiles made out of blue jeans, and furniture made out of bottles. Detritus from timber and agriculture is being reborn as building and design materials. Sea algae is being used to create dyes and fabrics. These innovations signal a shift in our relationship with materials, says Caroline Till of the London-based design house Franklin Till . Her firm created “The Future is Urban” pavilion at Frankfurt’s Heimtextil fair last year, which showcased trends in global materials. “All over the world, an emerging generation (is) rethinking raw materials, repurposing waste, and presenting radical solutions to the challenges of designing and making,” Till says. “We’re potentially on the brink of a materials revolution that could help rebalance our relationship with our planet and reshape society for the better. Consumers are looking for brands and companies to operate in a more responsible and conscious way.” While traditional raw materials can be expensive and in limited supply, household waste and industry scrap are abundant and cheap. Plastic is one of modern life’s most pervasive and polluting materials, Till says. But its innate durability, malleability and indestructibility can be used to create sound, hard-wearing materials. “The petroleum age’s equivalent of fashioning silk purses from sows’ ears,” she says. Emeco, creator of an iconic 1944 aluminum Navy chair, has partnered with Coca-Cola to make the chair out of 111 plastic bottles. Its production keeps 3 million of them out of landfills annually. IKEA has partnered with Stockholm studio Form Us With Love for the Kungsbacka range of kitchen cabinetry, made of recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed industrial wood. The retailer is also repurposing its own waste stream. Colorful Tanum flat-weave rugs are made from scraps from bed-linen production. The Tomat spray bottle is made of plastic left over from packing material. A swirly vase designed by Iina Vuorivirta started life as glass waste from other production. IKEA spokesman Malin Nordin says that finding new and smarter ways to use materials is a company goal. The challenge is to develop materials that are safe, high-quality and easy to work with. “We need to stop thinking outside of the box and start thinking in circles. Being circular means elimi-

material – notably leather, denim and cottons. Danish startup Really worked with textile giant Kvadrat on reusing an enormous store of worn-out sheets, towels and uniforms from hospitality and hospitals. The results: a sturdy textile slab that can sub for wood or composite, as well as an acoustic felt with excellent soundabsorbing qualities. Spanish designer Jorge Penades transforms scrap leather into lamps clad in a colorful “structural skin.” The timber industry generates thou-

sands of tons of waste pine needles annually. In Latvia, Tamara Orjola crushes, soaks, steams, binds and presses the needles into a material she calls Forest Wool, which she forms into stools, benches and carpet. While working as a consultant to the Philippine leather goods industry, Spanish designer and entrepreneur Carmen Hijosa developed a method of processing pineapple leaves into supple, textural faux leather she calls Pinatex . Farmers now benefit from two revenue streams. “By using intelligent, sensitive, appealing design,” says Caroline Till, “these waste pioneers are developing exciting and innovative ways to turn what’s previously been unwanted into objects of desire.”

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A HOME INSPECTION From finding an inspector to dealing with surprises — this is your guide to getting a house checked out. The first thing you need to know about home inspection: You’ll feel all the feels. There’s the excitement — the inspection could be the longest time you’re in the house, after the showing. Right behind that comes … anxiety. What if the inspector finds something wrong? So wrong you can’t buy the house? Then there’s impatience. Seriously, is this whole home-buying process over yet? Not yet. But you’re close. So take a deep breath. Because the most important thing to know about home inspection: It’s just too good for you, as a buyer, to skip. Here’s why. A Home Inspector Is Your Protector An inspector helps you make sure a house isn’t hiding anything before you commit for the long haul. (Think about it this way: You wouldn’t even get coffee with a stranger without checking out their history.) A home inspector identifies any reasonably discoverable problems with the house (a leaky roof, faulty plumbing, etc.). Hiring an inspector is you doing your due diligence. To find a good one (more on how to do that soon), it helps to have an understanding of what the typical home inspection entails. An inspection is all about lists. Before an inspection, the home inspector will review the seller’s property disclosure statement. (Each state has its own requirements for what sellers must disclose on these forms; some have stronger requirements than others.) The statement lists any flaws the seller is aware of that could negatively affect the home’s value. The disclosure comes in the form of an outline, covering such things as: Mold, Pest infestation, Roof leaks, Foundation damage Other problems, depending on what your state mandates. During the inspection, an inspector has three tasks: To: Identify problems with the house, Suggest fixes, Estimate how much repairs might cost. He or she produces a written report, usually including photos, that details any issues with the property. This report is critical to you and your agent — it’s what you’ll use to request repairs from the seller. (We’ll get into how you’ll do that in a minute, too.) The Inspector Won’t Check Everything Generally, inspectors only examine houses for problems that can be seen with the naked eye. They won’t be tearing down walls or using magical X-ray vision, to find hidden faults. Inspectors also won’t put themselves in danger. If a roof is too high or steep, for example, they won’t climb up to check for missing or damaged shingles. They’ll use binoculars to examine it instead. They can’t predict the future, either. While an inspector can give you a rough idea of how many more years that roof will hold up, he or she can’t tell you exactly when it will need to be replaced. Finally, home inspectors are often generalists. A basic inspection doesn’t routinely include a thorough evaluation of: Swimming pools, Wells, Septic systems, Structural engineering work, The ground beneath a home, Fireplaces and chimneys. When it comes to wood-burning fireplaces, for instance, most inspectors will open and close dampers to make sure they’re working, check chimneys for obstructions like birds’ nests, and note if they believe there’s reason to pursue a more thorough safety inspection. If you’re concerned about the safety of a fireplace, you can hire a certified chimney inspector for about $125 to $325 per chimney; find one through the Chimney Safety Institute of America. It’s Your Job to Check the Inspector Now you’re ready to connect with someone who’s a pro at doing all of the above. Here’s where — once again — your real estate agent has your back. He or she can recommend reputable home inspectors to you. In addition to getting recommendations (friends and relatives are handy for those, too), you can rely on online resources such as the American Society of Home Inspectors’ (ASHI) Find a Home Inspector tool, which lets you search by address, metro area, or neighborhood. You’ll want to interview at least three inspectors before deciding whom to hire. During each chat, ask questions such as: • Are you licensed or certified? Inspector certifications vary, based on where you live. Not every state requires home inspectors to be licensed, and licenses can indicate different degrees of expertise. ASHI lists each state’s requirements here. • How long have you been in the business? Look for someone with at least five years of experience — it indicates more homes inspected. • How much do you charge? The average home inspection costs about $315. For condos and homes under 1,000 square feet, the average cost is $200. Homes over 2,000 square feet can run $400 or more. (Figures are according to HomeAdvisor.com.) • What do you check, exactly? Know what you’re getting for your money. • What don’t you check, specifically? Some home inspectors are more thorough than others. • How soon after the inspection will I receive my report? Home inspection contingencies require you to complete the inspection within a certain period of time after the offer is accepted — normally five to seven days — so you’re on a set timetable. A good home inspector will provide you with the report within 24 hours after the inspection. • May I see a sample report? This will help you gauge how detailed the inspector is and how he or she explains problems. Sometimes you can find online reviews of inspectors on sites like Angie’s List and Yelp, too, if past clients’ feedback is helpful in making your decision. Show Up for Inspection (and Bring Your Agent) It’s inspection day, and the honor of your — and your agent’s — presence is not required, but highly recommended. Even though you’ll receive a report summarizing the findings later on, being there gives you a chance to ask questions, and to learn the inner workings of the home. Block out two to three hours for the inspection. The inspector will survey the property from top to bottom. This includes checking water pressure; leaks in the attic, plumbing, etc.; if door and window frames are straight (if not, it could be a sign of a structural issue); if electrical wiring is up to code; if smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working; if appliances work properly. Outside, he or she will look at things like siding, fencing, and Water: A Home’s #1 Enemy. Besides drainage, ask the inspector about any signs of water damage. Water can destroy the integrity of the home’s structure. So a leaky gutter isn’t just annoying; it’s compromising your foundation. drainage. The inspector might also be able to check for termites, asbestos, lead paint, or radon. Because these tests involve more legwork and can require special certification, they come at an additional charge. Get Ready to Negotiate Once you receive the inspector’s report, review it with your agent. Legally, sellers are required to make certain repairs. These can vary depending on location. Most sales contracts require the seller to fix: Structural defects, Building code violations, Safety issues Most home repairs, however, are negotiable. Be prepared to pick your battles: Minor issues, like a cracked switchplate or loose kitchen faucet, are easy and cheap to fix on your own. You don’t want to start nickel-and-diming the seller. If there are major issues with the house, your agent can submit a formal request for repairs that includes a copy of the inspection report. Repair requests should be as specific as possible. For instance: Instead of saying “repair broken windows,” a request should say “replace broken window glass in master bathroom.” • If the seller agrees to make all of your repair requests: He or she must provide you with invoices from a licensed contractor stating that the repairs were made. Then it’s full steam ahead toward the sale. • If the seller responds to your repair requests with a counteroffer: He or she will state which repairs (or credits at closing) he or she is willing to make. The ball is in your court to either agree, counter the seller’s counteroffer, or void the transaction. At the end of the day, remember to check in with yourself to see how you’re feeling about all of this. You need to be realistic about how much repair work you’d be taking on. At this point in the sale, there’s a lot of pressure from all parties to move into the close. But if you don’t feel comfortable, speak up. The most important things to remember during the home inspection? Trust your inspector, trust your gut, and lean on your agent — they likely have a lot of experience to support your decision-making. That’s something to feel good about.
