Watering need recommendations are based on local forecasts and past weather data, such as rainfall, temperature, humidity, and wind. Your actual needs may vary based on plant types and other factors. (See this page for details: http://www.weather.com/activities/homeandgarden/garden/wateringinfo.html)
The Watering Needs Index may recommend watering in your area even if it is raining or forecasted to rain. If so, it is because the index has calculated that not enough rain will fall to meet your average watering needs.
2. Can garden decor be found on a terrace or patio?
Even though a homeowner might not have a yard, there is no reason he cannot still enjoy the luxury of plants on a terrace, patio or balcony. Hanging vines, potted plants and flower vases allow for appreciation of home and garden products. Ask a garden center which plants will grow best.
3. What type of rock is it best to select for building rock gardens?
Porous, softer rock is better for rock gardens than is harder rock. Harder rocks take longer to acquire the weathered look that you are striving for in the rock garden, because they are less receptive to the growth of mosses and lichens. Promoting the weathering of your rocks will give the rock garden a natural look -- as if the rocks had always been there.
Also, stick to rocks that look the same in texture, color and form. If you use rocks of similar appearance throughout your rock garden, it will have a more natural look.
4. I have really long legs. How do I maintain proportion with the way I dress?
- Wear cropped pants (not too long or you'll look like you bought pants that are too short)
- Wear longer tops or jackets to create a longer torso
- Wear longer skirts
- Avoid tops that cling
- Wear horizontal stripes
- Wear tops with gathering around bust
- Wear pockets or lapels
- Wear the "right" bra
