Angels Camp, CA...The Calaveras Home & Garden Show is this weekend at Frogtown. It will be filled with a wide variety of local businesses just waiting to help you with your next project. We stopped by the Tuolumne County Home and Garden Show on April 13th to see how their show was progressing. The crowds were large and happy and Calaveras County's businesses were some of the largest exhibitors with Middleton's, Pinnells Airserve, Carpet One, Calaveras Lumber and more on hand and selling. So don't miss the Calaveras Show April 27 & 28th this weekend at Frogtown!!!!

Jackson, CA...Forty million acres here in the United States are devoted to turf grass, an area almost the size of the country of Greece. We irrigate these lawns with an estimated two trillion gallons of water each year, which is three times greater than the amount of water used on the nationʼs cornfields. Here on the West Coast alone, 60% of our water use goes toward watering lawns. Monetary costs for keeping these residential green carpets weed and pest free are staggering with an estimated $25 billion spent annually, much of it to spread 70 million tons of fertilizers and pesticides.

I will take on small projects like a simple deck cover or garage; difficult projects like a complicated residential remodel or commercial tenant improvement....

It's the time of year for family, fun, and outdoor barbeques. Many people, just like you, will be using their deck for the festivities. Some folks have learned that just because you think your deck feels safe, that doesn't mean it is.
