Carefree Decorating

A fuss-free home is one step closer to being a happy home. Just ask anyone who's shed even a single house-maintenance chore. Without sweeping taste and personal expression under the rug, you can decorate for carefree ease with elements that are sturdy, scratch-resistant, and washable. These two rooms offer specific ways to accomplish both style and substance.

Looking to the Light

We spend good portions of our days-- or at least our evenings-- in the kitchen stirring up dinner, soaping and soaking the dishes, and just plain hanging out. So the kitchen should be an uplifting place to gather. It could look out onto a garden or perhaps include some display space for favorite works of art. And it should definitely drink up-- and dish out-- lots of light.

Dining Room Deck

Even the sneakiest weather outbursts can have their benefits, such as encouraging much-needed remodeling jobs. A freak Seattle snowstorm knocked down an overgrown privacy hedge and weakened an already rotten deck in Daniel Lowery's backyard. "Many times, you make do with what you have and make it last as long as possible," Daniel says. Now the time was perfect to start fresh on a new deck scheme.

Building for the future Why wire well?

Start talking about computer networks, those complex systems of wires that connect computing devices, and most office workers have at least one horror story to tell. Computers crash, work gets lost, and files get sent to a printer in some other building. With the headaches at work-- where there's on-site tech support to lend a hand-- do you need a network in your house?

Three Times the Rose

Although your garden visitors may not believe you, this horticultural kaleidoscope is only one rosebush-- even though it blooms in three colors and varying shades thereof all at once. More color: New foliage and bud sheaths are a coppery-bronze, and the established foliage is clean green and shiny to boot. And adaptability? The butterfly rose is disease-resistant, shrugs off humidity, and grows taller the more shelter it is given.

Small Budget, Big Makeover

Nearly every home landscape could benefit from some fine-tuning. In the case of Martha Miller's front yard, a predictable, angular foundation planting (below) seemed too severe. "The shrubs were lined up in a row," Martha says. "Everything was absolutely square. And it looked like every other house on the street." Martha and two other homeowners in Des Moines, Iowa, agreed to let us watch while they made some small-scale changes to their yards. Their projects, which follow, show that just a few well-placed shrubs or flowers can make a big difference.

Water Play

Every yard has a spot for a water garden. So does every budget. And don't tell us you lack the time to build one. We set out to prove that you can, and for well under $100. Our requirements: no pump, no digging, no waterproof liner. Also, our water gardens had to fit almost anywhere-- on a deck or patio, in a corner of a path, or tucked into the garden. Finally, how about a water garden you can finish on a Saturday? We did it. Here's how you can too.

On the straight and narrow

Here's the inside skinny on Julia and Chris Cutler's place. When they bought the 700-square-foot cracker box and its attendant elbow-hugging bowling alley of a yard, Chris's parents went pale. Their words-- "You have no idea what you're getting into"-- still ring in Chris and Julia's ears these many years after transforming their house into a Georgian showcase and their front yard "alley" into a virtual vacation spot.

Long-blooming perennials

The average perennial gives you three weeks of flowers a year-- and 49 weeks of idleness. Thankfully, some perennials have more stamina. This petite veronica is one of the overachievers, offering purple mini-spires from May to frost. If you're fond of flowers-- and who isn't?-- this collection of perennials is for you.

Personalizing a Production Home

One of the first steps in building a new house is the preconstruction meeting. That's where you sit down with the builder and decide on options, upgrades, and custom touches. But, if you're not careful, it can also be the meeting where your dream house becomes the dream you can't afford. Here's how editors at Better Homes and Gardens magazine worked with one builder to personalize a conventional production home without ending up with a custom home price.
