comment Do fir trees cause foundation problems?
Contact a qualified arborist to examine the tree. If you do decide to fell the tree, consider if the tree is near a public path or road as felling it could be a hazard (which may also require arboricultural help).

comment Can an evergreen fern be adapted for indoor use?
I've already planted the fern in a larger pot and I'm worried that I might disturb the roots if I wish to add drainage. I like the idea of taking the plant outside for sunlight, I think I'll keep it outside whilst it matures.

@winwaed: I'd also like to use something other than a serving tray to hold all the water, but I don't have a bigger pot without holes.

comment What kinds of gloves are best for handling thorny rose bushes?
@Moe: These kind of gloves are good for soil and general dirt. They don't don't take thorns very well.

comment How is short grass like those at miniature parks maintained?
@wax eagle, I'd imagine it would be rather difficult to cut grass with a machete considering how difficult to get to some of the grass is.
