Drought draining funds at Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre

Drought draining funds at Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre

Letter To the Editor: This severe drought has had an impact on our local wildlife and Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre is feeling the strain. Our native wildlife are struggling to find food and water which leads them to be hit by vehicles, and easier prey for cats and dogs. We have exceeded the number of […]

Wanna do something? Not anymore!

Wanna do something? Not anymore!

Council has stepped in bylaw doo-doo again. I don’t know why, since they seem to invest a lot of talk into weaseling out of their own restrictive bylaws to allow good things to happen. Like making exemptions for three-storey buildings, and trying to find a work-around so a long-time store owner can put up a […]

Transform your home's ugly patio

Transform your home’s ugly patio

Recently I took on the weekend project of transforming the small patio on the back of my in-law suite for my mother-in-law. We decided that while the patio might be okay in some ways, having a large deck with a pergola all made from a low maintenance material like MicroPro Sienna, was a significant improvement. […]

What I learned from three inkless pens and a beer bottle opener

What I learned from three inkless pens and a beer bottle opener

After father died, my mom gave me three of his pens and a beer bottle opener. The pens had no ink. And I don’t drink. My brother Kevin got his ski sweater; Vern received a set of his tools, the third brother still more tools, and someone got a leather jacket. But the family scribe […]

Installing an outdoor room at end of season can be a bargain

Installing an outdoor room at end of season can be a bargain

For the last 10 years, the term ‘Outdoor Room’ has been used by realtors and homeowners to refer to any type of seating outside. The truth is, you can’t assume that if you have a deck or a patio, you have an outdoor room. Even better, installing an outdoor room at the end of the […]

If you can see your neighbours, they can see you

If you can see your neighbours, they can see you

For many years, that five-foot fence with the piece of lattice on top combined with a few strategically placed trees was the default method for creating privacy from the neighbours. Then houses started to change. Bigger houses on smaller lots became the norm. More square footage on the inside meant that houses were being built […]

Sheds - more than a spot to store your shovel

Sheds – more than a spot to store your shovel

The garden shed has made an amazing transformation over the last few years. No longer are homeowners satisfied with a little wooden shed in the back corner of the yard. Sheds now have to look good, as they are becoming a focal point in our outdoor living spaces. There are two reasons why this is […]

Patio stones a smart investment for your home

Patio stones a smart investment for your home

The popularity of the patio makes a lot of sense. Canadians want low-maintenance and there are few things that require less effort than stone. A properly installed patio with a good base and jointing sand can easily last 25 years. That’s one important reason to make sure you pick a stone that you will love […]
