Landscaping makes most Americans think of cut grass, immaculate flowerbeds, and trimmed bushes arranged under trees whose leaves are meticulously raked up and disposed of once a week all autumn long. But as hardscaping becomes more popular countrywide (not only because it's new and different, but because it's easier to maintain as well) the idea of what it means to have your house 'scaped' is changing rapidly.
The first big question they need to answer is 'what comes first'?
These plants do not take very much care, requiring little water and overall they are extremely hardy and self sufficient. In other words these types of plants are perfect workhorses that will thrive in arid or desert conditions.The Top Five Plants to Use in Desert Landscaping
If you live in a dry, hot climate, or if you live in a very sunny, but moderate climate, finding the top five plants to use in desert landscaping might be one of your best options.

For others who don't have the natural ability but are open to follow simple DIY instructions, searching for stone fire pit ideas may allow you to turn your dream into reality. Try searching for video clips from YouTube before buying the products you need. There are lots of ready-made models that you can assemble yourselves. Just take note of the precautionary measures and fire safety features that you need to know in choosing the ideal location of your stone fire pit. Make sure the ideal location is away from your home, it's not near structures that could easily catch fire like branches of trees, chemicals, etc. You also need to take note of the materials that you need to buy that can withstand the fire. Fire bricks should be considered within the interior part of the fire pit.

Wrap Around/Farmhouse Porch
If you love romantic and ornamental arts and trim or you are mesmerized by the Renaissance Era, I think a Queen Anne/Victorian style porch will be great for you. These styles of porches are truly fit for a King or Queen and they add a touch of old time elegance to your home. Most of these designs will include the use or wrought iron furniture, fencing or porch rails. You will also notice designs, curves and carved formations on the porch posts or railings and ornamental décor is the standard for this porch. Accent pillows line with ruffles, lace and floral designs are common as well as plenty of the color red.

You can find a template in a magazine ~ just cut out a baby foot from an advertisement. If you have a toddler you could even trace their foot. Once you have the foot you want to use, simply draw around it on a piece of heavy duty poster board. This will serve as your template. Then choose the paper you want to use for your invitations and cut around your template footprint. You can embellish these invitations with stickers, or even just sparkly pens. Just remember, a little goes a long way.
Once you find an invitation you like you simply print them out on whatever paper you have selected. You can find tons of different invitations with baby footprints on them online. Many of these sites are made so you can simply print them out on your own paper. You can jazz these up by using fun and interesting paper you get at the craft store. After you print them all you need to do is fill in the information.

The other, cheaper option is to get a freestanding deck. This is a laddered platform that stands next to the pool and has enough room for one or two people to stand. It also has a ladder the leads into the pool. There is a gate around the platform to prevent anyone from falling and injuring themselves. It also has a lock for when you don't want anyone getting in the pool while you are not there. Freestanding decks are the most inexpensive and easiest to install above ground swimming pool decks available. Anything less would be a simple A-frame ladder that fits across the pool ledge.Above Ground Pool Decks For All Kinds of Pool People
When someone decides they want to install an above ground pool seldom do their thoughts include above ground pool decks. Why? Probably because they are thinking about all the time they are going to spend in the water and lounging on a deck doesn't even cross their mind. But if you are one of those people reading this article then let me put your mind to ease now that you are probably asking yourself how much more an above ground pool deck is going to cost. Not that much more unless you want something extensive. And by extensive I mean something that reaches from the house to the deck, which would probably need to be tiered.

some for the first time and some regular TEDxBrixton fans who shared positive feedback about the event and revealed their own thoughts on the theme Kaleidoscopes.
Binki Taylor was the first of our 17 speakers to take to the stage and left the crowd in standing ovation with a moving story on her childhood as a black girl fostered by an all-white family. “I know exactly what it’s like to have a voice that isn’t understood. You feel like you don’t belong. Under the skin is where I found my voice. I had to tackle how to belong from the bottom.”Rebecca Trevalyan, Sam Hall and Steadman Scott also delivered their pieces on what Brixton means to them and thoughts on improving local communities. “What does Afewee mean? It’s for the community, it’s for us. Our mission is to put belief, passion, hard-work and discipline together,” Steadman explained.

1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m the partnerships manager, which means I look after our relationships with local businesses and sponsors.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I’ve lived her for a while now and this answer changes weekly, but at the moment I love hot yoga classes at Fierce Grace, after which I stagger down the road to Lucy’ Juices for a pick me up. As I expect most people who live here say, Brixton Market is a favourite spot – Fish Wings and Tings is an institution and Dave from Market Row wines will always find you a great bottle. Oh, and Three Eight Four on Coldharbour Lane does the best cocktails I can find.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? I’ve been working with a lot of local businesses this year and the theme has been very meaningful for a lot of people, as it represents the mash-up of old and new that Brixton is currently experiencing.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.
