Rather than use gasoline-guzzling, noisy mowers at its Mountain View, Calif., headquarters — the Googleplex — Google has been known to keep its lawn coiffed with rent-a-goats.

Google rents goats from a cool company called California Grazing, which swears it can maneuver a herd of goats through crowded city streets. It’s an eco-friendly approach to landscaping — and you can’t beat the cute factor.

  If you want healthy, vigorous plants in your garden, you need to get on intimate terms with your garden soil pH. Effort: Low 2-3 hrs.

Here’s how you can help your garden soil be the best it can be.

  If you want a yard that demands less time money and water consider low-maintenance grasses in lieu of the traditional lawn.
We love our lawns. Turf grass covers nearly 47 million acres in the U.S., according to the Lawn Institute. But that’s not very green. The average household dumps 60 gallons of water per day on conventional lawns. Toxic lawn herbicides and pesticides run off into lakes and streams. Gas-powered mowers spew pollution. And then there’s the watering, weeding, seeding, sodding, thatching, and mulching commitment.
If you’re looking for an alternative, consider replacing some or all of your high-maintenance turf … (0 comments)

  Attic bedrooms are very popular and I see them frequently.  When a family grows or needs additional space, it’s an area they look to if the basement is already being used as a workshop or for storage.  In terms of a remodeling project – this project has a high return on the investment:
Effort: High 3-6 wks Investment: High $50,148 (nat’l avg)* Adds Value: High $36,346* * Actual value varies per area.  Average value obtained from Cost VS Value report’s National average in Remodeling Magazine What I have seen that holds these spaces back from being attractive to the next … (1 comments)

  Warning: Scammers are on the prowl, claiming to have your share of the foreclosure settlement — for a fee, of course. The next phone call you get might be from a crook eager to “help” you get your share of the recent $25 billion foreclosure abuse settlement attorneys general in 49 states negotiated with the big banks.
Reality check: This is a national settlement run by state employees. So the chance that a settlement official is calling you the week after the deal was struck because they’re ready to send you your share of $25 billion is about as likely … (3 comments)

  A short sale might be worth more than avoiding a foreclosure on your credit report. For some, it means cold hard cash.
If your lender offered you as much as five figures to move out of your home because you couldn’t make your mortgage payment, would you do it or wait for the lender to foreclose?
The answer would seem to be a resounding “hell, yes.” But many people sit tight.
When Bank of America offered short-sale incentives of $5,000 to $20,000 to 20,000 Florida home owners late last year, only 3,000 home owners expressed an interest in participating.
