Impoverished soil should be fertilized, and many tree experts believe that every large tree should be given a thorough feeding just before the leaves break in the Spring. Care of trees and well-planned land spacing are encouraged by the Federal Housing Administration for properties on which it has insured mortgages. Many types of planting- and landscaping may be financed under the Modernization Credit Plan of the PHA. 1940 Shows Increase In Low Income Buyers Fifty-seven per cent ot the new single-family homes financed by mortgages insured under Section 203 of the National Housing Act during 1940 were purchased by families with incomes of less than $2500, as compared with 52 per cent in 1939 and 43 per cent in 1537.

Design has become a most important factor in horticulture and upon design depends the appearance of tne home surroundings, whether w^u ar:C| 3 rtis . tic and appealing or v/nctner-they are commonplace and lacking in distinction. The flower garden should be care- lully planned in its relation to the entire ground area of-the home It should be laid out to scale, the entire lot being drama and decision made as to the location of the flower planting and what shape it shall take—whether it shall be a border around the boundaries of the yard whether it shall be a formal garden! or w ; - ?r it shall consist of borders ; ; the walks or drives. The simplest and most effective plan for the average small home usually is a boundary planting with a background of shrubbery or vines. A border from 6 to 10 feet wide,' according to the dimensions of the lot, with colonies of plants selected as to color harmony and season of bloom. Small formal gardens to occupy the entire area of the small backyards have proved one of the most attractive plans. In this case the first decision is as to whether the lines-shall be straight or curved Straight-line beds and borders are the easiest to. handle and keep- in order. It is also a popular feature now to dig a small pool for the beauty of the reflections of surrounding foliage and also to grow a water lily to give its fine summer bloom. The simplest and most lavish display of color may be secured by the use of annuals in these borders especially*!! the dweller is a renter or if he is newly developing the property, the annuals furnishing color while a stock of perennials is being raised for permanent decoration. In any event plenty of annuals will be needed to furnish a mid-summer and fall display when the perennial season slacks. It is a wise plan to visit yards which have attracted admiration in. your neighborhood during the winter nnd inspect^ the lines and general design with a view to adapting the best features for your own yard. In addition there are a number of excellent books on design for the home grounds at reasonable prices. Your Old Furniture in on New, or Sell it to Us For Cash. Alvin Hardy Furn. Co. :i01 K.
