Q: I am an excited parent-to-be and want to create the perfect nursery—one that won’t need to be redone every two years as my baby grows. Any suggestions?
A: You are in a sweet dilemma. Fortunately, there are sweeter solutions. Look for a baby bed that will convert to a child’s bed. The one featured here can be converted at four different stages of growth. Also, select wall colors or coverings that will work long term and change up decorative accessories and linens as the child gets older.

Today’s landscaping trends focus more and more on sustainability, which is a good thing. Most people think of using native plant materials when it comes to sustainability, which is not a bad way to go as the majority of native plant materials are drought tolerant and require low maintenance. But, there is much more to creating a sustainable garden.
Placement of material is key, as some plants require more water or care when planted in full sun. If the species of plant can survive and thrive in partial sun or shade, you can cut required water and care times considerably.
