Little ones curl up for the night in a custom-made platform bed on wheels (fun and flexible!) and a loft bed with ladder access. The room gets its light, bright feel from pine floors, white walls and sheer window panels.
A home office is easily converted into a guest room thanks to a stylish sofa bed. The coffee table is made from an item in the homeowner's vintage suitcase selection and was placed on wheels to make it easy to move out of the way.
No vessels laying around the house? No problem. Sometimes the best floral containers are those repurposed from everyday objects. For a fun and flirty springtime look, add wildflowers and fruit wheels to a clear glass vase. In order for the fruit wheels to sit up straight, you’ll need to add the floral bunch inside of the pitcher, then drop the fruit wheels in between the bunch and the glass.
Two maple four-poster beds are set against a bright red hue that's perfect for kids of all ages. A car motif is repeated throughout the room with a pedal police car "driven" by a plush teddy bear in the center of the room and chrome wheel covers perched over each bed. A chrome diamond-plate border (purchased at an auto supply store!) adds another unexpected touch.
Finish this type of trench lawn edging by covering the area with some type of mulch. A mulch layer helps keep weeds from sprouting in the uncovered soil and prevents soil erosion from the planting bed itself. If your trench area is shallow, you can run your lawn mower along the bed edge by dropping one wheel into the trench. This eliminates any need for string trimming the lawn edge.
Cultivating an eye-catching landscape doesn’t have to gobble every free moment. By streamlining landscape chores, your yard can explode with beauty—even as your chore list lightens. This front yard welcomes with mixed plantings: trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Give planting beds a wide, sloping trench edge to make mowing easy. Simply drop a set of mower wheels into the trench to cut grass along the bed edge, and you can skip string trimming.
This design of this kid's bedroom demonstrates the finesse of Jackson Paige Interiors, as they incorporate the overall contemporary, coastal theme of the home but with a fun and free-wheeling approach. The contemporary bunk bed with shelves anchors the decor and allows the more eclectic elements--wallpaper, striped wall, light fixture and built-in daybed--to show their charm.
Best used as ground cover, Wheeler’s Dwarf Japanese Mock Orange is known for producing small scented flowers with orange coloring. When grown in partial to full sun, the ground cover can reach 3 feet in height and 5 feet in width.
Bagworms are the larval form of a moth that attacks evergreens and other trees. The worm inside each bag feeds on the evergreen bush or tree, building a case around itself for protection from predators. The case is made from bits of the plant the insect is feeding on and slowly enlarges over time as the insect grows. Females lay eggs in the bags in late fall. The best control, if you only have a few bagworms, is to handpick the bags and drop them into soapy water or put them out with the trash. Predatory insects including wheel bugs or insect-eating birds will attack these insects, even inside their bags. You can also spray traditional or bioinsecticides. Follow directions carefully on timing. Once larvae are more mature and tucked into thicker bags, the chances of a spray reaching the worm itself are small.
