Median: Challenge lies beyond the sidewalk By Dean Foskick The Associated Press Making a yard and a community more beautiful begins at the curb. But that narrow space between sidewalk and street — sometimes called a boulevard, median, hellstrip, parkway, verge or tree belt — is a gardening challenge. For starters, it’s probably owned by the municipality but falls to the homeowner to maintain. So the first step in caring for it is to sort out what local rules allow. “You need to go to the city’s website if there are any questions about who owns what,” said Evelyn Hadden, author of the new book “Hellstrip Gardening” (Timber Press). “The zoning laws should be posted online.” “Some cities have regulations where there can only be lawns there. Some say there can’t be vegetables, but allow some kind of lawn alternative,” she said. “Some communities change their rules when people start growing gardens and the community gets behind them.” Curb appeal can increase property values

for the whole neighborhood, Hadden said. “Curbside gardeners are pretty generous that way. They’re working for the benefit of everybody.” Even seedy-looking parcels can become natural welcome mats when integrated with front yards. Curbside spaces are often heavily trafficked, however, making them tough to cultivate. The ground is hard-packed, and plants can be crushed underfoot. Rocks might add character to the landscape but will dent car doors if placed too near the curb. Tall, dense foliage can be a traffic hazard, preventing passing motorists from seeing pets and children. Here are some tips for creating a welltended “hellstrip”: • Talk with neighbors before getting started. “The tension will come when somebody complains,” Hadden said. • Be aware of sight lines, especially at intersections. Drivers may have trouble turning safely if something tall is in the way. • Go with perennials rather than annuals, said Fred Rozumalski, a landscape architect with Barr Engineering Co. in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Then the soil is only worked

once and it’s more secure,” he said. “Dirt won’t run into the street, clogging gutters and storm sewers.” • Avoid growing vegetables at roadside sites because of pollution, Rozumalski said. “They collect elevated levels of road salt, lead from gasoline and copper from brake linings. I certainly wouldn’t want to eat any food that came off a boulevard.” • Tree planting is the city’s job, he said. “I’ve seen people make bad choices, planting trees like sugar maples that are difficult to maintain and push up sidewalks. Shrubs should be kept low, no more than 18 inches in height.” • Be cautious about displaying yard art, Rozumalski said. “You don’t want to distract drivers. It’s probably better if you put those kinds of things deeper into the yard.” • Boulevards typically are too narrow to be turned into full-blown rain gardens, but they’ll be more environmentally friendly if the soil level is kept at least 2 inches below the curb, he said. “Then the water will collect instead of running off.” For more about curbside gardening, see this Metro Blooms Urban Gardener’s Guide: .

Keep your entire home cool without disrupting home decor Brandpoint

Don’t sweat it if your home doesn’t have central air-conditioning. Whether you live in an older house that can’t accommodate ductwork, or you don’t want to sacrifice your interior aesthetics with an unattractive air conditioning unit, you can still keep your home feeling — and looking — cool this summer with advanced air conditioning technology. Homeowners without central AC often choose to cool their home with air-conditioners that are clunky, inefficient and downright ugly. Fortunately, you can find higher quality, more attractive ways to cool your home. “Homeowners today are seeking products that are not only high performing, but also visually appealing and fit in to the personality of their home,” says Patrick O’Toole, editorial director and publisher of Professional Re-

modeler magazine. “Installing an attractive air conditioner instead of an outdated unit is a simple change homeowners can make to keep themselves cool during the summer.” There are a number of ideal alternatives to traditional HVAC systems that can be a perfect addition to your home this summer season. Below are some tips to keep your home cool all summer long: • Duct-free systems have traditionally cooled just one room of the house, and most models aren’t made with your home’s aesthetics in mind. For example, the unique, multi-zone LG Art Cool Gallery, which has both an indoor and outdoor component, resolves both concerns by allowing users to customize the unit with their own artwork, while also heating and cooling up to four separate areas in the home. The indoor unit hangs on the wall like a picture, and homeowners can insert their own artwork or photography into a frame that conceals the front

of the unit, so they don’t have to stare at the bland, protruding box on the wall. • Ceiling fans not only help cool a room on their own, but also are a great way to supplement the effectiveness of an existing AC unit by creating further air flow. • Blocking the hot sunrays from shining through your window with blinds or shades is a great way to maintain coolness. Roomdarkening blinds, curtains or shades can deliver stylish looks and still shield rooms from the sun during the hottest parts of the day. Also, updating drapery with seasonal, lightcolored fabrics throughout the house can help reflect heat better than dark ones, which tend to absorb light and heat. • Adjusting the pilot light on your gas stove and water heater can be a cost-effective solution, as they often produce excess heat that raises the indoor temperature. If you have a gas fireplace, turn off the pilot light during summer to lower temperatures and contribute

to a reduction in your gas bill, which results in energy savings throughout the season. • Incandescent light bulbs turn the majority of the energy they consume into heat. Consider replacing traditional incandescent bulbs with cooler alternatives like CFLs or LEDs. These bulbs consume far less electricity, which could lower your utility bills, and turn most of that energy into light, rather than heat. • For a longer-term solution that is also environmentally friendly, plant shade trees around your house, such as Maple, Oak and Elm. They’ll help protect your home from the sun, create an aesthetically appealing landscape and contribute fresh oxygen to your outdoor environment. From reducing the amount of sunlight that warms your house to installing the latest in duct-free AC units, simple tips like these can help you and your family stay cool this summer and save on your energy bills.

Home cleaning tips turn chaos into harmony Brandpoint The stack of shoes that pile up by the front door, the linen closet that you’re afraid to open, the junk drawer that may well hide the mysteries of the universe — we all have one or two spots in our home that cry out for organization and tidying. Spring cleaning season is approaching, and with a plan of attack you can take this opportunity to clear away clutter, organize underutilized spaces and generally improve the overall usability of your home. Procter & Gamble and The Home Depot have teamed up with seven DIY bloggers to offer 14 room-by-room tips for getting organized this spring:

Cutting kitchen chaos

• Nearly everyone has one drawer in their kitchen that becomes the “catch-all spot.” Empty yours, wipe down the inside, and insert a silverware tray to help organize pens, batteries, buttons, random screws and other items that find their way into the drawer. You can find drawer inserts and many other organizational tools at The Home Depot near you. • Every family needs a central spot for

sharing information. But if a cork board, white board or chalkboard isn’t your idea of wall decor, try hiding them away on the inside of a kitchen cabinet. Mount a cork panel on the inside of a cabinet door, or use chalkboard paint to create a hidden and useful spot for notes, shopping lists, coupons and reminders. • You likely sweep the kitchen floor daily, but floors can also benefit from a good steam cleaning at least once a week. Steam cleaners like the Swiffer Bissell Steamboost deeply penetrate dirt and remove messes mops might leave behind. • Organize the cupboard and pantry by using boxes, jars and baskets with labels on them. When it’s time to put an item away, everyone will know where it belongs, rather than be tempted to toss it randomly into a cupboard.

Better bathrooms • Bathroom drawers can easily become cluttered. Place desk organizing trays in drawers so that items like makeup, combs, curling irons, etc. stay neat and orderly. A bit of Velcro keeps trays in place and makes it easy to remove them when it’s time to clean

them out. • The cabinet under the sink can be a scary place. Baskets bring both organization and style to under-sink storage spaces. • Not everything needs to be hidden away. A basket makes a great way to cleverly display toilet paper and still make it easily accessible when needed. Placing grooming supplies in a tiered serving tray brings organization, style and convenience to a bathroom. • Scent is a key concern in bathrooms. Scrubbing the shower, floors, toilet and sink until they sparkle is a good start, but sometimes baths need a scent boost. Try placing scented candles in the bathroom to help neutralize odors and add a fresh, welcoming aura to the room.

Lighten the load in laundry rooms • Even small laundry rooms often have unused space above the washer and dryer where you can install shelving for storage. Head over to your local home improvement store for a variety of shelving to store detergents, stain removers and fabric softeners. • Add a rolling cart or laundry butler to your laundry room. It’s a great way to add

organization and function to the space, helping keep clothes off the floor — plus they’re simple to transport. • Laundry rooms are often overlooked in the decor department, but a fresh coat of paint can really liven up a dingy, utilitarian room. Choose a bold and bright color - the laundry room is about making things clean, so the room should inspire the vividness you want to achieve in your clothes.

Cleaning up closets

• Empty your linen closet and refresh all those stale sheets with a good wash with Tide HE Laundry Detergent, which infuses fabrics with its fresh original scent. Keep sets together by bundling sheets and pillowcases together with a bit of ribbon. It also makes for a pretty display inside the closet. • Swapping mismatched hangers for one type is a quick, easy way to make a closet look more organized, clean and stylish. • Consider creating a cleaning closet or cabinet where all your cleaning supplies live. Having all supplies in one spot will make it easier to take stock and know what you need to buy on your next trip to The Home Depot.

Little projects give your home added flavor.

DIY tips for perfect home AttrActive home improvement projects in gorgeous setting Brandpoint

Dreaming of a home makeover? Sources of design inspiration, like Pinterest, are plentiful and can help make your home decor and renovation projects easy and fun. In fact, now is the ideal time to gather ideas and get started.

Warm up to color

A fresh coat of paint is an inexpensive way to transform a tired look into a vibrant vision. Choosing the perfect shade is often the most time consuming and nerve-wracking part of the process. Knowing this, paint manufacturers are coming to the rescue and providing many new tools to help give you the color confidence you need. For example, pick up small-size paint samples, like Platinum Color Samples from Dutch Boy, tinted in your favorite shades and apply directly to the walls you’re interested in painting. These color paint samples help you visualize how the entire space will look before investing time and money on a large painting project. Plus, the Dutch Boy color samples are available in Dutch Boy’s highest-quality interior paint so you can test its best paint and perfect color together.

Simple sampling

Once you have a sample size of your perfect shade of paint, it’s time to test your hunch. Apply the sample paint on several walls. This will help you envision the color’s look in various light sources, both natural and artificial. Be sure to check the painted wall at different times of the day — giving you a truer view of the end results. If you prefer, you can paint large white poster boards with your sample paint and move

them around the room to verify your vision. When testing multiple colors, avoid painting sample strips too close together as this might distort the appearance of the color. When you’re happy with a color selection, head to a local retailer to purchase the paint tinted in the quantities you need.

Size up your projects The fun doesn’t have to stop with the walls. Dutch Boy Platinum color samples can also work for smaller interior projects because the sample contains a premium paint. Try stenciling your favorite inspirational sayings or words of wisdom on your living room or office area walls. Another quick project is to use the samples to paint the trim on picture frames or mirrors to coordinate with your newly painted room. Add some final touches After you plan your painting projects, it’s important to prepare for the small details and finishing touches that help bring everything together. Break out the hot glue gun, some of your favorite silk flowers and bright ribbons to make a whimsical wreath for the entrance to your home. You will have the perfect entryway accessory to welcome in guests. Whether entertaining friends and family or simply relaxing alone with a good book, having an outdoor oasis is crucial to enjoying warmer days and nights. To give your patio some pizzazz, why not create some decorative, weather-proof pillows or cushions? Utilize durable, all-weather fabrics in complementary hues and patterns to achieve the lounge-worthy look you’re craving. This small sewing project will add a level of comfort and creativity to an otherwise boring patio set.

Simple design tips for bringing outdoor freshness into indoor spaces Brandpoint Between time spent commuting, working in the office and conquering an endless list of to-dos at home, a full day can go by without much, if any, time spent outdoors. In fact, Americans spend 90 percent or more of their time indoors according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Although it’s not always possible to increase the amount of time spent outside, it is possible to transform your interior environments allowing you to experience outdoor freshness even if you’re inside. Celebrity interior designer Thom Filicia knows the benefits of the outdoors and the importance of bringing it inside. Through his designs, he often finds ways to transform indoor spaces with touches of outdoor freshness, to create an inviting environment that stimulates all the senses. To achieve this, he offers five simple tips.

Tips to help get your home ready to sell Brandpoint Listing your home for sale? Or want to? First impressions can make the difference in attracting prospective buyers. Many buyers make decisions based on emotion. To appeal to emotions, and make a positive first impression with prospective buyers, present your home at its best.

Get out the toolbox: identify and make repairs

No need to completely remodel the bathroom, but make certain you fix the leaky faucet. Consider an inspection to identify potential problems to correct before they turn away prospects. Making small repairs to sticky doors, torn screens, cracked caulk or chipped paint can create a better appearance, without breaking your budget. Install new hardware on kitchen cupboards or worn door handles to update the look.

Create the “wow-factor” with curb appeal

First impressions begin once people set their eyes on your home’s exterior view. Preparing the house to sell doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Start by pulling out your gardening gloves and clean up the landscaping ing, add final touches to make your home .

Clean homes attract buyers. Clean, clutter-free rooms feel more spacious, so pack up extra shoes and holiday decor, then grab cleaning supplies to add the shine. Pay attention to details like bookshelves, bathrooms, closets and pantries, to make sure your home projects a sparkling clean, neat look. Depending on your climate and time of year, open the windows to breathe fresh air into the home.

The art of tackling your tile project Brandpoint

When you add a tile or natural stone surface to the kitchen or bathroom, it transforms each space with a fresh, clean and customized look. Many homeowners often dream about adding a backsplash or replacing a floor, but never complete the project because they can’t decide on the right look, become mentally exhausted by the thought of doing the project or don’t know how to accomplish it themselves. “There are simple tips designers use to plan the look and feel of a room using tile colors and patterns,” says Kirsty Froelich, design director for The Tile Shop. “Whether you want to do the tiling yourself or plan to hire someone to lay it for you, these hints will help you get the look you want with ease.” Do: Find inspiration to guide your vision — This is the fun part. Get motivated to do your project by looking for photos that catch your eye in magazines or Decorpad, get inspired with hundreds of inspirational spaces from The Tile Shop on Houzz, Instagram, Pinterest or, and start a file of your favorites. Visuals of what can be done or what has already worked for someone else are great reference for your project even if you tailor it to fit your own style. Also, try using graph paper to draw out your own geometric designs. As you gather visuals, you’ll most likely notice a similar pattern and/or shape of tile or stone materials that you’re drawn to, which can range from ceramic, porcelain and glass to marble or slate. This will help you narrow down a style of tile to use. One material that is very versatile is Travertine from The Tile Shop. It comes in a neutral color palette, perfect for using on the floor, walls, backsplash, around the fireplace or even outdoors in warmer climates. It is available in stores and for purchase online. Don’t: Go overboard — Too many patterns or colors in one space can overwhelm a room. Instead, keep things clean and simple. Do: Check your colors — Before purchasing all the materials for your project, bring samples home so you can see the colors in the space. “Store lights and the lights in your kitchen are very different, and all of the sudden, what you thought was a beige color in the store might look green in your home,” says Froelich. Also match your tile samples against other colors that will be in the room, from the paint on the walls to the granite countertop to the wooden cupboards and floor. By


The Bucak Collection from The Tile Shop is a natural stone tile made from Travertine. It is very versatile for bathroom and kitchen floors, walls, backsplashes, fireplaces or even outdoor surfaces in warm climates.

matching samples, you’ll know the finished project will result in the exact look you want. Do: Measure twice — This tip applies not only to the planning process, but also to the installation process, especially if you need to cut tile. Once you’ve measured and double-checked your measurements, don’t be afraid to have someone else repeat the process to ensure accuracy. Don’t: Ignore the details — A tile project will go from nice to stunning if you add simple finishing touches to the project. For example, Froelich recommends mitering corners for a professional look and finishing any raw edges of the space with bullnose, stone profiles or trim pieces. Do: Use resources — Take your plans, photos, sketches and any color swatches you’ve selected to The Tile Shop so your sales associate can work with you to

achieve your vision, and help you find the perfect tile for your project. Additionally, a tile setter can help you avoid common design or layout mistakes. For a final check before cutting and installation, lay out the tiles out in the place and pattern you’ve

designed so you can make any last-minute adjustments. If you’re doing the tiling yourself and need a refresher, “Once you have your design, your materials and you have tested your pattern, you’re ready to start the project,” Froelich says. “Roll up your sleeves and get started so you can enjoy your updated look for many years to come.”
