The joy can go out of a project that requires removing 17 plants from brackets or ceiling suspensions for water. The best bet is to hang the majority of plants on walls within reach, with one or two strategically placed from the overhang of a roof or a ceiling of a porch. Newspapers could then be placed under plants to catch the excess water. Ordinary flower pots Equipped with the rigid hangers that may be attached to brackets are very good for this purpose.

In addition to double-hung windows and bay windows, which are assembled from stock units, homeowners cart choose from several other types. These include: Awning and hopper. These two windows are similar, but awning units open up and out, while the hopper units open down and in. They are often stacked in groups of three or four, and are frequently found in contemporary i ft 6tanfree,-Carefree Patio Living ADD BEAUTY ON WITH 0 TRANSLUCENT NEWI THCIMOBLOK HMTCOlfflOLCOUM A •UdMlyMghar tii«wtlyl<if «"» BUILDING PANELS + Add, colorful beiuty. glarefree patio •badt pith guarantied Foot .fibaraluf pent*.
