Michele Kvintus, a Rocky River resident, loves her 1940s inspired home, but she was low on space in her kitchen. Michele called Brent Moore at Moore Home Remodeling and together they got to work on a plan.The goal was simple: open up the kitchen and make the family more comfortable in their shared space. New kitchen cabinets were built and installed, along with brand new countertops and flooring. While Michele wanted to modernize the kitchen, she also wanted to preserve the original feel of the kitchen.  Brent and his team found new kitchen cabinets true to the home's historic style, but they used the latest drawer closures, modern cabinet and drawer pulls, and custom paint finishes.See ...

Guarding Your Garden Against Deer

By Meg GreenbiarWhen it comes to deer, resistance is futile. (But try these tips just the same.) I wonder if gardeners in Africa worry as much about lions and tigers as Ohio gardeners worry about the destruction caused by doe-eyed, cotton-tailed deer. If you could create a full proof, anti-deer solution, you could patent it and retire on the fortune.  In the meantime, I find that a combination of homemade and commercial repellents can go a long way toward keeping hungry deer at bay. 
What's for dinner, deer?
On the commercial side of the spectrum, you can purchase deer repellent. Products like Liquid Fence, Deer Out, and Deer Scram keep deer away with an odor offensive to four- ...

For many of us, it's the largest room in our house and our most used entrance, but, let's face it, it's rare to be in love with your garage. After all, the garage is just a place to park your car and store the fake Christmas tree, right? Michael Padden from Encore Garage wholeheartedly disagrees.Encore Garage teamed up with a family in Salem, Ohio to renovate not one, but two garages. Workbenches, epoxy floor coating, and closets were installed in both spaces to create what Michael Padden calls, "The dramatic wow factor." Every family member, even those with four legs, had design input.Watch the transformation yourself. *Cool cars not included

It's Northeast Ohio. We know about leaky basements. Mold, bacteria, and allergens can fester and thrive out of sight thanks to the persistent moisture. The surrounding wood and electrical systems can also become compromised once a leak goes untreated. Owner Frank Tomaro and his team at On-Call Waterproofing have helped hundreds of Northeast Ohioans protect their basement-level spaces and the integrity of their homes.  This is the story of two different On-Call clients, with two different houses, but one common problem: a leaky basement. Watch how Frank and his team solved their persistent basement problems.

Everyone wants to eat healthy, but balancing health factors against cost and ease of access makes it difficult for many local families. Feeding Medina County's community garden seeks to relieve some of this pressure. In the short term, the garden will provide fresh, healthy produce to local residents in need, but it's also an important first step in what Bryan Hollopeter, fourth generation Medina family businessman and general manager at Medina Tractor Sales, calls a "local food movement" with more ambitious long-term goals.
Bryan, who spearheaded the effort, found many other garden sponsors across Northeast Ohio, including Ventrac who also agreed to donate 1% of all sales from May-October ...

SEMINAR: Meg's Must-Do June Checklist

By Meg Greenbriar
1. Go after slugs and snails. Put out containers of stale beer or get the commercial stuff. Take action before they multiply and destroy your plants.
2. Frost is over until fall. It's officially vacation time for the houseplants so take them outside for the summer. But remember to avoid intense sunlight or you may crispy fry them. Fertilize them and don't forget to keep them watered.
3. Work on the compost pile. Keep it watered and remember to turn it regularly.
4. Prune the spring blooming trees and shrubs once the flowers are gone.
5. Weed. Weed. Weed.
