On today’s Your Valuable Home, Kristen talks about how Kevin and his crew are re-creating the first floor of her classic center hall colonial to an open floor plan. When Kevin is finished, Kristen’s kitchen will flow seamlessly into the family room. Why go to this expense on improvements? Because Kristen and her family love the house, the neighborhood and the neighbors? Besides, the upgrade costs less than moving. Rose then shares her story of how a tree take down became a horror story. The tree guy took off with tree limbs on the lawn and the stump still in the ground. For the College today, we have Len and Julio from Bloomers Home and Garden Center in Washington Township, New Jersey talking about getting ready from the coming spring planting season. Lots of great tips like…1) Whatever you plant, take into consideration how large it will grow, and don’t crowd your plantings, 2) Don’t mess with invasive plants like bamboo that, sooner or later, will cause problems for you and possibly your neighbors, 3) Before you plant in a new spot, call for a stakeout to locate buried electric and communications lines.
