Designing the perfect playroom on a shoestring budget (ARA) - Playrooms are ideal spaces for encouraging children's creativity, providing them with the stimulation they crave and helping them create a connection with others. The great news is that you don't have to build an addition onto the house or set aside your family vacation fund to create a great playroom. Many unused extra spaces in the home can function as playroom spaces. Whether it's a sewing room you no longer have time for or maybe an extra bedroom that isn't being used, make sure the space is safe and secure for the ages of children who will be playing in it. Spaces under staircases and large closets can make great play areas and give an almost fortlike feel for your child to play make-believe in. Your next step is to define a goal for the room and take into account who will be using the space. Need some direction? Review online resources for playrooms or visit stores that offer playroom ideas. Places like Ikea, Target and the like can be great resources for fun, functional and inexpensive ideas and designs. "Create universal spaces that will grow with your children," encourages Nancy Bohnett, academic director of Interior Design at The Art Institute of Las Vegas. "Your first child may be a 3-year-old girl who loves princesses, but she may outgrow her love for pink in a few years and gain a baby brother who will also use the space as he grows." Once you've got an idea of how you want the room to function, you'll be able to make a list of the items you'll need and want, whether it's an easel for your little artist, bins to store a large collection of blocks or a table for the perfect tea party. You may find that you have many of the items you need, whether they are crammed into your child's current space or stored in the garage.

For the items you need to purchase, take advantage of places like Ikea, peruse a garage sale, check the listings on Craigslist, find some treasures on eBay or visit a recycled furniture store to pick up pieces you need. With a little TLC and some paint, any piece can make a great addition to your playroom. Closet sweater stackers and over-the-door shoe organizers are great places for coloring books and art supplies. When it comes to the walls, playrooms should be bright and cheerful, but there's no need to go overboard with paint. "The reality is that children's tastes change as they grow. Creating an accent wall in a favorite color is a great way to bring color to the space and save money. It can be something your kids help with, putting their handprints on the wall or something fun and can be easily changed over time," says Bohnett. In fact, Bohnett encourages restraint in all the decor. "Be careful not to choose a theme that will be outdated in a short period of time. Allow the toys and creative pieces your children create in the room to dictate the space. You'll

save time, money and frustration in the long run," she says. When it comes to flooring, hard and washable surfaces are ideal for these spaces. "Having floors that can withstand the rigors of childhood play is important for a parent's sanity," says Bohnett. "Not only do children play with many things that roll along the floor, but they also play with messy things like paints, clay and Mommy's nail polish." Don't let a small space rain on your playroom parade. "There are simple ways to make a room feel larger," Bohnett adds. "Do simple things like add a mirror to the room. It can be used for dress-up time and helps the space feel larger." Children can also use washable markers and paints on the mirror, which can easily be cleaned once playtime is over. Lighting for the space can be a breeze as well. Overhead lights that are already built into the space, daylight and some indirect light are all you need. Grab an old lamp from the garage and paint it to match the new scheme. It's a great way to personalize the space SEE PLAY ROOM PAGE 5

Don't trash that banana peel - composting is an easy, eco-friendly alternative (ARA) - Recycling is certainly not a new concept. In fact, gardeners have been using one form of recycling - composting - for about as long as people have tilled the soil. Composting is a cost-effective, eco-friendly way to give your garden a boost. Start your compost pile now, before winter settles in, and come spring you'll have a jump on nutrient-rich compost to help your garden produce its best harvest. Composting happens by itself through natural decay and the breakdown of organic matter. Depending on your local climate, the composting process may not be fully completed with useable humus or compost until temperatures warm up. "Composting is easy and can be done for as little as $10 - or even free if you build your own bin," says Bruce Augustin, senior director in research and development with Scotts. "It's a great way to provide essential nutrients to your soil, while recycling kitchen and yard waste, which helps keep refuse out of landfills." It's easy to get started composting: find a bin, gather materials, build your pile and compost. Augustin offers the following easyto-follow steps for getting started:

FROM PAGE 5 and an inexpensive alternative to a custom child-themed lamp. Last but not least, don't forget that even in a kids' space, parents need a little room. Make sure there's a comfortable place for you to sit and supervise your children and to have the materials at hand you'll need for the space.

"A high-nitrogen fertilizer like Miracle-Gro Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food, spread over each layer of your compost pile, will help the composting process by creating a favorable nitrogen to carbon ratio," says Augustin. Remember to turn or aerate the pile periodically to help move material from the outside closer to the center of the pile, where it will heat up and decompose faster. During the winter - depending on the region where you live - the center of the pile is where decomposition will take place, and adding water to keep the pile moist will aid the process. Your compost will be ready to use once it has turned dark and crumbly, and gives off an earthy odor. Add the compost to your garden soil to help nourish your plants. "Composting is not only beneficial for your garden, but it's also an easy, satisfying way to do something good for the environment," Augustin says.

LANDSCAPING right or planting the wrong plants in the wrong spots. A professional landscape designer envisions creative solutions to the most difficult outdoor challenges - problems they've more than likely solved before. Plus, a high-quality landscape increases home sale prices up to 10.8 percent, compared to a home with a simply average landscape, according to the Journal of Environmental Horticulture. Here are some tips from professional landscape designers to create your dream garden. First, consider your space and any "issues" that it has. Hiding an unsightly air conditioning unit, adding privacy and changing boring views to beautiful ones are issues that landscape designers face with many clients. "As a certified landscape designer through the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, I see the big picture," says Bostonbased landscape designer Maria von Brincken, APLD. "A designer sees the problems that you see, and often the ones you don't, and can offer solutions to create beautiful, functional and earthy-friendly landscapes to add to your lives." Next, do your homework. Tear out favorite pictures from gardening magazines, and start making a file on what you would like for your dream garden. While not everything might be possible for your garden, it will give your landscape designer a visual starting point. Don't forget about hardscape such as patios, decks and fencing; designers can help with these also. Take your time. Brincken warns of the temptation to impulsively buy plants at a garden center and attempt a garden make-over. This can be a costly gamble for those without experience. Many homeowners find that it takes the help of a designer to create a well-planned landscape project that includes both plants and hardscape. While there is a cost to hiring a landscape designer, it is ultimately more economical to work with an expert to create a plan specific to your yard. The project is completed in a timely manner and within SEE LANDSCAPING PAGE 12

up front. Get ready to get dirty. "You can hire a landscape designer for a range of services. You might choose to hire a designer for a two hour consultation for ideas and suggestions that you might implement yourself," says Patricia St. John, APLD, of Berkeley, Calif., and APLD incoming president. "You could also hire a designer to give you a complete design for your garden. When it comes to implementing the design you have choices -- involve the designer while you hire a recommended landscape contractor or even do some of the work yourself." Also, you do not have to complete the whole plan at once. A landscape can be installed over a period of time as well. Homeowners can decide what areas are most important and start there. Take the first step to a dream garden. With the help of a professional landscape designer, you can create a plan that will work for your landscape and you. Finding a designer is easy: visit www.apld.org.

budget when you take your time and create a landscape plan. Expect to spend about 10 percent of the total cost of the project on the design. Consider what you want to achieve with your landscape. "People are busy, and they want to have an outdoor space that makes them feel comfortable, not frustrated and worn out from gardening chores," says Judy Nauseef, APLD, of Iowa City, Iowa, and president of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (www.apld.org). "They also want to maximize their investment in their home," she adds. 'Having a well-designed landscape gives the homeowner more living space and also helps with resale value." Research and reach out to a few landscape designers. Be sure to interview several designers to find one who meets your needs and personality. Review the portfolio or Web site of each designer, and visit some of their work if possible. Finally, if you have a budget in mind, share this with the designer
