I have to get rid of my back lawn (water meters). Is there
a visqueen or similar that I can cover the lawn with that
will allow (rain) water through but not weeds/grass to come
back up?(Hoa da pha lê)

Plan is to put Decomposed Granite (DG) down and eventually,
when finances allow, to install garden boxes.

Many thanks,

Make a list
 
Always start with a list of things that need to be done.  Go through each room and make note of every area that needs attention.  Prioritize the list so you know which places to start first.  About Home suggests that you start with the most important areas such as the entry way, kitchen, living room and bathrooms.  Pretty much every area the guests will see should qualify as the most important areas.  Your list should include cleaning that needs to be done, furniture that needs to be rearranged and décor that needs to be updated.  When hosting a party, your guests will take note of how clean your home is or how up to date your décor is, so if you are looking to impress, start preparing your home early.
 
Clean and organize
 
Of course there will be some cleaning that takes place the day of the party, but all the deep cleaning should be taken care of before the big day so there is not too much for you to worry about.  The easiest way to make a home look spotless is by ridding it of clutter.  Get rid of the things you do not need or use regularly, and find a place for the stuff you do keep.  Use bins and baskets to organize rooms and closets so everything has a place.  Again, start with the most important areas, and then work your way from room to room so you do not miss anywhere.  If deep cleaning the house all in one day is too much for you to worry about, than take it a little bit at a time, starting in the areas that your will spend the most time in.  On the day of the party, all you should have to clean up are the basics like dishes, minor dusting and vacuuming.
 
Prepare for the unexpected
 
With hosting a party comes a lot of mess, and most of the mess is unexpected such as food and drink spills.  Stock up on stain removers, carpet cleaners and towels so you are prepared for whatever mess occurs.  You are the host, and messes should not surprise you or irritate you while the party is in session.  Accidents happen, and the more prepared you are, the more enjoyable your party will be.  A perfect party hostess is always prepared and expects the unexpected.

<![CDATA[How big is your community garden]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/621/how-big-is-your-community-garden Duke Community Gardens, NJ

I visit lots of community gardens and for the most part they are about 4x10 spaces for each person/family. I visited one this week though where the lots were closer to 25x25 ft!!! Thats a lot of land to grow on. So I was curious as to how big your community garden is.
