  • Year-round gardening: How vines grow, climb

    Vines are weaving wonders that can add dimension to gardens, create privacy, provide shade and mask eyesores. They grow and climb five different ways. How a vine supports and attaches itself go hand in hand. Unfortunately, many vines are chosen for their decorative qualities, with no consideration or thought given to how or if they will be...

  • Believe in seeds: They'll expand your gardening horizons

    "Plant seeds" might seem like an inane suggestion for a gardening column. But I'm serious. More and more people who garden these days put plants rather than seeds into the ground.

  • Rainy weather especially tough on gutters in Colorado Springs

    Rain has plenty of fans, especially songwriters with umbrellas. But a good thing in abundance can start to feel like something else. That something else? You're soaking in it. Colorado's monsoon season isn't due to arrive until summer, but if you're feeling a little soggy from the spate of rainy days here in the Pikes Peak region, you're...

  • Around the house: Some heaving in concrete basement floors is normal

    Dear Ken: The concrete floor is heaving in my basement. Should I pull back the carpet and grind off the high spots? Any other fixes? - Steve Answer: This is fairly normal. Concrete floors set directly on soil tend to shift over time. We install gloves (control joints) that are designed to keep separations minimized and in straight lines. So...
