Modern stone path
On a large property near San Francisco, Roderick Wyllie and James Lord of Surface Design constructed a walkway using staggered stone strips interspersed with low groundcovers and stones. It can handle large volumes of rain without sending the runoff into the nearby storm drain.

Gardening with epsom-salts. This gives you a good explanation of how to apply to many different plants.
Plants Can, Gardens Ideas, Epsom Salts, Cups, Green Veggies, Epson Salts, Sore Muscle, Health Benefits, Organic Gardens
Epson salt is a cost effective and well-reputed supplement for organic gardening.
I was just reading about the importance of consuming magnesium, but with soils so depleted, it is difficult to get enough through the usual sources (leafy green veggies) -- maybe this would help?
epsom-salts - GARDEN IDEAS
Gardening with Epsom Salt: For potted plants, simply dissolve 2 tablespoons per gallon of water, and substitute this solution for normal watering at least once a month. Prep your garden soil by sprinkling up to 1 cup of Ultra Epsom Salt per 100 square feet, and then work it into the soil before seeding or planting.
Gardening with Epsom Salt Epsom salt has become a popular and well-reputed supplement in organic gardening.
Health benefits of epsom salt baths. Add 2 cups to the bath water and soak at least 12 minutes, three times a week. Increases your magnesuim levels.
Epsom salts have benefits ranging from reducing sore muscles to flushing toxins from your cells.

It makes a perfect, fast-growing screen. Name: Phyllostachys aurea Size: To 20 feet or more Growing Conditions: Full sun and moist, but well-drained soil

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean.

Tips for growing hydrangeas. Roger Cook pruning hydrangeas.
Tips for Growing Gorgeous Hydrangeas By: SAL VAGLICA, This Old House magazine: Q: That raises the question: Should I be pruning at all? A: If your hydrangeas are sited correctly, with enough room to grow, the only pruning required is to remove dead wood—be sure to take it off at the base of the plant if the whole branch is dead—and spent flowers. In Dirr's experience, all hydrangeas benefit from regular dead-heading to encourage more blooms. Left unpruned, they will produce fewer flowers because of a growth-inhibiting chemical released by the terminal bud at the tip of the stem. Don't prune past August, though, because any new growth is susceptible to an early-fall freeze. "Whether to prune hydrangeas is often debated, but studies have shown that dead-heading spent flowers definitely encourages more and bigger blooms," say horticulturalist Michael Dirr. Shown: TOH landscape contractor Roger Cook clips large flowers from a mature peegee. These tree-like shrubs reach up to 25 feet tall, with white to pink conical-shaped, mid-to-late-summer blooms.
