Enjoy the Warm Days Ahead with These Popular Ideas for Decks & Patios


o wipe away the chilly memories of winter, think of relaxing or entertaining in your outdoor living area in the summer days ahead. To get started with your “hardscaping” plans, here’s a look at the most popular materials available for decks, patios and other structures and some advice from the experts.

paTios and WalkWays When selecting a material for a patio or walkway, let the style of your house and the surrounding houses guide you. older, more traditional houses, especially those in established neighborhoods, usually look best with patios and walkways made from natural brick or natural stone because they complement the materials used on the house.

Trends in Hardscaping By Fran J. Donegan



May 2013

“pattern flagstones cut from bluestone and sandstone allow for a wide variety of customizable paving options for terraces and walkways,” says glenn albrecht, senior project architect of Wesketch architecture of Millington, who has noticed an increased return to natural products for landscaping and decking. “The colors of natural stone will remain steadfast for millennia, and each piece has its own unique color and pattern created by the forces of nature,” albrecht says. adds anthony cortese owner of cortese Masons, “With a good mason’s touch, natural stone materials can add an artistic quality to a space.”

The latest dirt on spring gardening


By Fran J. Donegan

ay is a good time to finish up spring maintenance chores in the garden. it’s time to add mulch and compost to beds. it’s time to deadhead spring bulbs; to begin hardening off transplants for final planting later in the month; and to plant colorful annuals.

Houses with a more modern design can benefit from the look of interlocking pavers in colors that work well with the siding materials on the house as well as with the surrounding plantings. according to cortese, these pavers are a good choice for homeowners looking for a simple, but warm, patio alternative. “pavers are made from a concrete-like substance and come in all shapes, colors and sizes,” he says, “and when installed properly can be very durable as well.”

all decked ouT

if a new deck is in your plans, there are a many materials from which to choose: chip schneider of West essex Building supply of Verona says that for customers who choose composite decking, he recommends TimberTech, with its 25-year no-fade, no-stain warranty on most colors. TimberTech comes in an assortment of colors, designs and rail patterns. “lately, i find customers choosing walnut and rosewood—a definite focus on the darker colors,” schneider says. Wesketch’s architect glenn albrecht sees an increased return to natural wood. “We are seeing more use of cedar, mahogany, and ipe, a tropical hardwood. The softness to the touch, unique grain patterns from piece to piece and subtle color variations are unmatchable.” “an added bonus”, he says, “is that when obtained from Fsc (Forest stewardship council) certified, sustainable forests, natural wood is a renewable resource whose use is environmentally responsible.” s

in the past, many homeowners relied on flats of colorful, easy-to-grow impatiens for summer-long blooms, but they may be difficult to find this year. impatiens have been struck by a blight called downy mildew, which forms a residue on the leaves, causing them to curl and drop. if you do decide to include impatiens in your garden this year, make sure they come from reputable growers who follow strict disease-control protocols. “Because some garden centers will not carry regular impatiens this year, i recommend substituting annual or perennial vinca,” says Ted cox, owner of the cedar grove garden center. “They look somewhat like impatiens,” he adds, “and deer will usually avoid them.” With the deer population on the rise, anne Fahey, a horticulturalist, garden designer and owner of anne Fahey garden design and consulting of essex Fells, recommends planting such deer-resistant flowers as peonies, catmint and coreopsis. “For annuals, i recommend cosmos, which also attract beneficial insects, as well as cleome, salvias, wax begonias and ageratum.” Hydrangeas, a popular addition to many gardens, blossom beautifully when pruned correctly. ron lang of garden Masters in glen ridge recommends pruning right after flowering to get the best results for the next blooming season. He also suggests considering the new hybrid hydrangea called Endless Summer™. “These plants bloom in late spring through early fall on old and new wood,” lang says. “you can prune them any way or any time, and they will still bloom.” s May 2013

In the Marketplace By Erika DeSimone, photos by Dan Epstein



espite the unseasonably cold temperatures, hundreds flocked to the Valley Mall in Gillette, where a March 22 ribbon-cutting celebration marked the official grand opening of Kings Food Market. Once inside, guests were impressed by the newly constructed store, which offers 22,000 sparkling square feet of unparalleled grocery shopping. Third in a host of store transformations planned as part of a Kings Food Market rebranding initiative, the Gillette Kings is the company’s first “ground up” location in twelve years. “Creating a brand-new store has not only allowed us to build upon the Kings tradition of excellence, but has also enabled us to anticipate the future needs of our loyal customers,” explains Store Manager Donna Lewis. The result? A world-class food store with meticulous aisles, dazzling displays, and a seemingly endless array of services and offerings designed to impress even the most discriminating shoppers. Unchanged are the upscale chain’s premium produce, world-class meats, market-fresh seafood, and superior customer service. But shoppers visiting Kings Gillette should expect to experience jaw-dropping amenities around every corner. “We are privileged to offer customers innovative in-store offerings that are entirely new to the brand,” Lewis says. “We’ve created an experience that simply cannot be duplicated,” she continues. The store’s new Hibachi station draws quite a crowd, offering fresh dumplings, teppanyaki pancakes and rice or noodle bowls prepared on a high-heat Japanese hibachi griddle, made to order while you wait. The Mezze bar brings the Mediterranean to you, offering specialties including baba ganoush, falafel, hummus and fresh baked pita bread. Kings huge selection of fresh, chef-prepared cuisine is designed to let even the busiest families squeeze in a nutritious meal before Little League games. You’ll find a wide variety of hot items, in addition to fresh-made sushi, gourmet soup, a fruit and salad bar, a grains bar, and a phenomenal service bread department. Not to be missed is the made-to-order Neapolitan-style pizza, baked fresh in a wood-burning oven in just minutes. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, guests can grab a bite and enjoy the convenience of TV and free wi-fi. The full-service coffee bar also offers the finest cappuccino, espresso, iced coffee beverages, fresh fruit smoothies as well as baked goods and yogurt parfaits. The signature food market has long maintained a reputation for its variety of unique hard-to-find offerings. The Gillette Kings’ artisanal cheese department is one-of-a-kind, offering over 400 locally sourced and European cheeses. The produce department boasts a rainbow of fruits and vegetables—many of which are shipped from field to store in less than 24 hours. Meticulously stocked shelves are lined with signature labels and gourmet imports, in addition to handpicked local selections, including pasta and sauces from Vitamia & Sons (Lodi), delectable sweets from Enjou Chocolat (Morristown) and other area favorites. The store also carries one of the area’s largest selections of gluten-free items, making this Kings location a convenient one-stop-shop for families with dietary restrictions. Kings employs an experienced and enthusiastic staff of in-house chefs, floral designers, catering professionals, and knowledgeable, hands-on experts in every department. The entire experience is so special that you’ll wish your shopping list were just a little bit longer. Grab a shopping cart or visit where inspiration strikes online at s

HealtH & Beauty By Julie Jacobs

Taking Care of THe Skin Soon you’ll be shedding your bulky winter wardrobe for t-shirts, tanks and shorts, exposing your body’s largest organ—your skin. While protecting it from the sun is especially critical during the warmer months, keeping it healthy all year long is just as important. Here we give you the low-down on cleansers, scrubs, facials and more—from the tried-and-true to what’s new.

Clean, Exfoliate, Moisturize and More


ost of us use bar soaps, many of which contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which tends to strip away moisture and dry out the skin. For supple skin, try cleansers that contain such ingredients as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and plant-based oils, which help to retain the skin’s natural oils, hold onto water or provide much-needed moisture. Removing dead skin cells through body polishing— or exfoliation—also promotes healthy skin by allowing the growth of new skin cells for a clearer, smoother look. exfoliate once or twice a week with hydrating, alcohol-free products that contain glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid (the last also can help prevent breakouts). you can use at-home, over-the-counter microdermabrasion kits as well. When it comes to moisturizing, many creams and lotions are multi-purposed, with elements like shea butter, dimethicone, alpha hydroxy acids and broad-spectrum sunscreens that lock in moisture and prevent dryness, while sloughing off dead skin cells and protecting against uVa and uBa rays. One new ingredient to the moisturizer recipe is hexamidine, which has been used to lock dampness in the lining of disposable diapers.

Petroleum jelly is oil-based and can serve as a daily moisturizer or as a lubricant to soothe dry skin. aloe vera also benefits dry skin, but goes further to help heal rashes, burns, insect bites and superficial wounds, and may even offer anti-aging properties that stimulate collagen and lighten dark spots.

ealthy skin can also be bolstered through professionally administered treatments like facials and chemical peels. Facials typically involve cleansing, exfoliation, extraction of blemishes, massage, mask application and moisturizing. Products used are based on your skin type and the effects you seek. Some of the most popular facials include collagen and alpha hydroxy acid—the first to hydrate the skin and help prevent dark circles and wrinkles, and the second to smooth the skin, tighten pores and lighten dark spots. aromatherapy facials employ essential oils that draw out toxins and rejuvenate the skin, while antioxidant facials use creams that fight damaging free radicals and protect the skin against environmental pollutants. you might want to try an oxygen facial, which delivers hyperbaric or pure oxygen through an airbrush to cleanse pores, increase circulation and plump the skin without any redness afterward. There are even facials that utilize products containing pure gold, found to improve the lymphatic system and cell regeneration and enhance skin softness and elasticity. Chemical peels also vary by skin type, but all essentially apply acid to remove the top-most skin cells to reveal newer, brighter ones, so you can expect some degree of shedding. Glycolic and lactic peels are mild with minimal side effects, but because they don’t go very deep, you may need more than one to achieve your desired effect. Peels that go deeper, such as trichloroacetic and phenol, can reduce wrinkles as well, but may cause increased sensitivity to sunlight and blotchy bleaching of the skin. If you have pigmentation problems, you might want to consider the relatively new Melanage™ peel, during which a medicated mask is applied by an aesthetician to be removed later by you, followed by a strict at-home regimen. Melanage™ not only lightens dark spots, but can also have a positive impact on texture, tone, fine lines and collagen production. s For more information:;; health.howstuffworks. com;;;

LOOk AND FEEL YOur BEST renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Scott A. Spiro brings his expertise to every procedure


n artist at heart, Dr. Scott A. Spiro, FACS, combines his creativity with cosmetic surgery skills that draw patients from all over the globe. This stand-out surgeon, Essex County’s best-kept secret, can be found at his West Orange practice, Spiro Plastic Surgery. With 17 years and 17,000 procedures under his belt, the board-certified physician is a pioneer in performing such simultaneous body-contouring procedures as tummy tucks, breast surgery and liposuction, providing fabulous results to make patients look AND feel their best. Dr. Spiro also pairs plastic surgery with facial rejuvenation procedures, making clients appear years—or even decades—younger.

Q: What drew you into plastic surgery? A: It was a combination of my background as an artist

and my desire to provide the highest technical surgeries. I was especially fortunate to be able to combine these two skills to please my patients with superb outcomes. To me, most exciting is the endpoint—I like to think of my work as “living art,” so seeing patients experience that and surpassing their expectations of what they can achieve is why I do what I do.

Q: Why do patients come to your practice? A: Seventeen years and thousands of patients. They also

get the opportunity to experience a website with over a thousand photos that is constantly being updated and added to. My patients also find my background in art beneficial as well as my sincere, honest, hardworking approach including a careful well thought out plan and our large, professional, experienced and helpful staff. Overall we present a comfortable, caring environment.

Q: For those who are interested in having work done, can you give an example of how a consultation might work A: For the initial consultation, I spend a minimum of

45 minutes face-to-face with the client, although this could be significantly longer, depending on the



May 2013

Dr. Scott A. Spiro, FACS

complexity of what we’re talking about. We talk about goals and expectations, and I perform a thorough, problem-focused exam. Additionally, I review available treatment options as they pertain to their particular issue, and discuss similar patient situations and outcomes and how they relate to that. The consultation serves as a decision-making tree and includes discussion about recovery and follow-up. I’ll have another brief consultation with the patient before the surgery to ensure they’re comfortable and confident that I’ve created a well-thought-out plan for them. This works well because many patients don’t see the doctor for a second consultation.

Q: Potential plastic surgery patients come to your practice not only from the tri-state area, but also from around the globe. Why are you their first choice? A: Technology has made our services global. I think

people see my results online, read my blogs, and see our positive online reviews. They get a sense of what we are about and are confident traveling to have me take care of them.

The Sunniest Advice


Tasty Trend: Eating Local

efore you slather on the sunscreen, soak up about 10 minutes of sun. Shocked? That’s the latest advice from many doctors, who say that lack of pure sunshine may be the prime reason that so many of us don’t get enough Vitamin D. The number of people lacking this vitamin has doubled in the past decade. And the “sunshine” vitamin helps us absorb calcium, along with its many other health benefits. Why are so many more people lacking in Vitamin D? Experts say it’s because we spend more time indoors, and then spritz on loads of sunscreen before stepping out, in a wise move to ward off skin cancer and wrinkles. Sunscreen is vital, especially in the summer. But 10-15 minutes of sun isn’t likely to give you anything but a jolt of unadulterated joy—and plenty of Vitamin D. Just avoid the tanning salon and the “mad dog and Englishman” hours of 10am-2pm, when the sun is strongest. Can’t take the sun? Enjoy foods high in Vitamin D, such as fatty fish and fortified milk, or pop an over-the-counter supplement.


Are You, Uh, Stopped Up?


t’s not the most pleasant of topics, but the fact is that nearly everyone will experience constipation at some point—and millions of Americans suffer from this miserable condition chronically. If you’re one of them, ask your doctor about a relatively new, over-the-counter drug called MiraLax (active ingredient: polyethylene glycol). It’s a Consumer Reports “Best Buy” because it’s safe, effective, well tolerated—and doesn’t contain the harsh stimulants of many laxatives. Meds containing senna or bisacodyl are powerful—and good as short-term solutions. But over time, they can cause your system to stop working on its own, relying instead on the drugs. To prevent the problem in the first place, drink plenty of water and eat a fiber-rich diet of veggies, fruits, whole grains, legumes, and beans. If you need more help, try fiber supplements (those with psyllium work best). Exercise also helps get you… going.


top by a farmers’ market or pick locally grown produce at the supermarket. You’ll be helping out local farmers, of course, but you’re also likely to get more nutrients in fresh, locally grown fruits and veggies. And because the produce is grown specifically for your area, it doesn’t need preservatives to keep it fresh during long road trips and weeks on the supermarket shelf. Oh, and to no one’s surprise, in an unofficial poll most people say that fresh, locally grown food simply tastes better. No farms in your town? No problem. “Local” is defined as anywhere within 150 miles of home. For more information, visit,,, or

Portraits Add Meaning to Mother’s Day

Photos by Dan Epstein



an Epstein, senior photographer for Suburban Essex and Vicinity Magazines, will be hosting his ninth annual Pose for a Cure fundraiser on Saturday, May 11, from 9:30am to 5pm at Shag 86 salon in Little Falls. The event gives mothers and their children an opportunity to pose for portraits with a professional photographer, while simultaneously benefitting cancer research. In lieu of a sitting fee, Epstein asks that participants bring a check for any amount they wish, made to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which focuses on breast cancer research.

Gerald Ferraro and Dan Epstein 42


May 2013

Once again this event will be in honor of Mother’s Day, in memory of Dan’s mother, whom he lost to breast cancer in 1990—as well as to all affected by this disease. Shag 86, located at 86 Main Street in Little Falls, has graciously offered their salon as a venue for the event. “People really get a charge out of the event,” Epstein states. “It surprises me because when I first started this event, I thought people would be signing up just to have a portrait taken with their kids, but so many of them—an overwhelming number—actually signed up because they had a first-or second-hand experience with the disease. The issue really spoke to them.” “My staff and I are happy to be able to help Dan out,” states Shag86 owner Gerald Ferraro, “I’ll do anything to support this cause and am glad to support Dan with this event.” In addition to the Shag86 support, North Jersey Woman magazine will be sponsoring a contest entitled, Pose for a Cure with North Jersey Woman. A gallery of portraits on the magazine’s website will allow visitors to vote on their favorite. The winner will be awarded with a prize package, and the chosen portrait will be featured in an upcoming issue of North Jersey Woman magazine. To be included in the Pose for a Cure event, reservations are required by contacting Shag86 at 973-837-0086 prior to May 11. Please make your donation by check to Susan G. Komen for the Cure ahead and bring it to your sitting. In addition to this Mother’s Day event, Epstein will be holding a Father’s Day Pose for a Cure event on June 15, also held at Shag 86. On that date, fathers will have an opportunity to pose with their children. To see samples of Dan Epstein’s work please visit 



An interview with New York Giants quarterback Scott Brunner (Continued from the April edition)

BARRY FARBER: When winners are in pressure situations they have an ability to come through. They have confidence that’s built over the long term that gives them the foundation to perform when the game is on the line. How do you develop that skill and ability? SCOTT BRUNNER: We tell our guys to be oblivious to the obvious. BF: Can you explain that? SB: There are a lot of obvious things happening in a game. Let’s say you fall behind by three touchdowns; you’re not going to come back from that all in one play. So you have to be oblivious to the fact that you’re down by three touchdowns and focus on the process that allows you to succeed. We continually reinforce the process, validate their execution and therefore validate their success. BF: Let’s talk about leadership from the QB’s perspective. SB: Football is probably the most interdependent sport of all. You’re not only dealing with

yourself and your own performance, you’re dealing with the performance of 10 other guys on the field. If one guy makes a mistake or misses a block, the whole team suffers. It requires a lot of coordination. The great players are the ones who put the team on their backs and carry them to places they didn’t think they could go as individuals. BF: How do they do that? SB: It takes some maturity to develop that leadership style and the leadership qualities that will inspire other people to follow you. That’s why young guys sometimes have a difficult time doing that. Leadership is also about respect and that involves being competent and knowledgeable; this also takes time to develop and earn your team’s respect. Good leadership also means being a good follower. A strong quarterback hands the ball off 30, 40, 50% of the time—so other people are going to be responsible for carrying the load of the team. You have to feel comfortable

Barry Farber

handing the ball off to somebody else who will end up taking control, and not feel like you have to control every situation. That’s where the great ones excel because that’s how they inspire other people. BF: So true. You’re building trust in your people when you encourage them and delegate versus the leader who has to do everything himself and conveys to his people that he doesn’t trust their abilities. You’ve shared a lot of great information that can be applied to all aspects of performance in sports, business, and life in general: • Aim small, miss small to really hone a skill and hit your targets more accurately. • The value of preparation cannot be understated. • Vision and Decision—the ability to see the field of play and implement nimbly—is something we can all improve on. Great leaders surround themselves with people they can hand the ball off to and trust their ability to get the job done. 

Barry Farber consults with corporations, professional athletes and entertainers helping them market their products and land more deals. He’s the best-selling author of 12 books translated into 25 foreign languages with over one million copies sold.
