SLIP-FREE STAIRS For outdoor paint projects (a patio or steps), stir a little sand into each can of paint to provide better traction on rainy days. The sand functions as a grip and helps prevent falls in slick weather.
WEEDING MATERIAL If weeds have overtaken your yard, smother them with newspaper printed with soy-based ink. It will degrade naturally and add carbon to the soil. Lay four to six sheets of newspaper over weeds (a layer of cardboard also does the job), and weight them down with some rocks or a heavy branch. Cover the weeds during autumn, and by spring, you should have lovely, weed-free soil, ready for planting.http://readymade.com/resources/gardening_guidelines/
