THE NEWSPAPER WILL PREVENT ANY GRASS AND WEED SEEDS FROM GERMINATING, BUT UNLIKE FABRIC, IT WILL DECOMPOSE AFTER ABOUT 18 MONTHS. BY THAT TIME, ANY GRASS AND WEED SEEDS THAT WERE PRESENT IN THE SOIL ON PLANTING WILL BE DEAD. ITS GREEN, ITS CHEAPER THAN FABRIC, AND WHEN YOU DECIDE TO REMOVE OR REDESIGN THE BED LATER ON, YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE HEADACHE YOU WOULD WITH FABRIC.
Solar Tiles v Solar Panels: "Tiles, technically speaking, are photovoltaic cells that mimic traditional roof shingles. They first became commercially available in 2005; at that time, they were more expensive than panels, but recent market forces have driven down the cost, so now the prices are equivalent." - that's in the US, of course. | Century Roof & Solar
Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces t ogether. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.
