There is a small hallway/entryway in my basement (about 12' long x 6' wide) that had wood paneling so I decided to pull it off just so it will have drywall like the rest of the house. The drywall...

I've got it in a shed so there really isn't room along the wall because I have shelves but since I only use it a couple times a year, maybe I will just put some J hooks as mentioned up high near the...

No, but I have another old electric chainsaw that always has a little puddle of oil on the ground after. I just thought they leaked out but maybe that saw is just bad :)

How to store an electric pole saw without leaking oil

I have an electric pole chainsaw that I have just been laying on the floor of the shed and I want to finally hang it. I know it doesn't leak when stored horizontally but can it be stored vertically...

Hey thanks for that info. I looked it up and my county provides 5 free tests to residents, however it says they have suspended taking them right now due to covid-19. I guess I have lived with it...

Ok, I will get a soil test kit for starters. The moss seems to just grow in the areas that are completely shaded all of the time and in an area that is very swampy during the winter so that is not...

I didn't see anything stuck. I was able to get one today at a local appliance parts store and it's up and running fine again. Luckily I didn't have to wait a week for one to ship.

Well, I took it apart and didn't see anything stuck in the pump so I guess I will just replace it. Hopefully I can find one somewhere locally tomorrow so I don't have to wait all week for one to...

LG Front loader. The pump number is 4681ea2001t. It seems like a common one, but I am just wondering if the noise can also mean it is going bad (if I take it apart and find nothing in it). It seems...

Noise from washing machine pump when draining

Yesterday I noticed a loud noise (like if you were to stick something in a fan blade) coming from the bottom of my LG washer only while it was draining. It's obvious that something is going on with...

Ok, I appreciate it. So should I even bother with anything then? I will definitely keep doing the weed control because at least there are no weeds but any other fertilizers or anything? Should I...

I have not checked it for grubs. A few years back, I did treat it with some grub killer in hopes that would get rid of a mole. I hear you on those lawns being brown around here. It does seem that...

I think there is misunderstanding on this. Once July and August hit, even if I water it every other day in the summer, it pretty much stays mostly brown and does not grow except for a few small...

I realize it is not a one time thing, but I think because I neglect to cut it during the winter, and it is so long, and then it looks like crap from the start, I just am not motivated to do anything...

My dad has an electric dehatcher so I just ran it over and got up a bunch of the dry stuff and the moss. I filled up a 30 gallon can with the stuff. Maybe I don't understand the purpose of that, but...

Tips on reviving this lawn

Every year I want to make my lawn nice but the same thing happens: it is very green over the winter, I mow it for the first time in around March where it is way too long and so after I mow, many...

Great point, that is a high price for just the bait. Since the Contrac comes in an 18 pound bucket for $82 or four 4 pound buckets for $96, maybe I am better getting the 4 buckets for a little more...

Ok I'll check out smaller quantities. I guess what I asking though is if bait should always be out. It makes sense to do it and check it like you said to control an infestation, but as far as I know,...

That 6 pack of Aegis RP does look good and those are probably much nicer boxes than the ones I bought at the store. That would also be enough to put around the rest of the house. It looks like...

Wow, I did not realize the 20 oz bottle would go so far. At that rate, the big bottle would last way past 5 years so I better get the small one. That is amazing how it lasts 10 years for termites...
