[quote]The "s" is silent or nah?[/quote] He’s from Houma. My money is on a silent ‘s’. Also willing to bet his grandma calls everyone cher and may even spell it like ‘sha’ when writing out Christmas cards. ...

re: english ivy or creeping fig or something else? - ashy larry
[quote]Creeping fig is invasive[/quote] Uncontrollable? Or just hard to remove? I don’t mind trimming. It wouldn’t be around any other plants on my property. Although I guess it could spread to the neighbor’s side of the fence. I’m not terribly concerned about the fence longevity. It’s cedar ...

english ivy or creeping fig or something else? - ashy larry
I have a small yard and need some privacy. I currently have a 6' cedar fence and don't want the look of an 8' (or taller) wood wall. Instead I want to install a couple feet of lattice or some kind of trellis on top of the fence to allow the ivy to cover from the ground to the top of the lattice/trel...

re: Costs of house pad prep? - ashy larry
I'm guessing they aren't working the dirt for that price. a few years ago I paid for 240 yards for my pad. It's in Baton Rouge so I had to pay more for the dirt than if it would have been near a dirt pit. $2 yard dirt $7 yard for delivery $2 yard for leveling it and compacting it. Total was $...

re: Best filter system for an inground pool? - ashy larry
I have chlorine. I didn’t get salt bc a salt water pool will corrode everything near the pool. My pool is right off the back porch and I have a lot of metal things in my outdoor kitchen. My chlorine takes little effort to keep balanced. I follow the guidelines from troublefreepool.com. It’s cost...

[quote]So called water closets. Why does the toilet need its own tiny room? Who wants to be confined after an episode of explosive diarrhea. [/quote] The confinement is for privacy and for the code-required vent to remove the gases. I don't need to watch my wife wipe nor does she want to watch m...
