Mobile and Coding Improvements

November 7th, 2019
We've just rolled out a large amount of coding updates and are currently in the process of testing several large mobile usability improvements. Most of the new mobile page updates should improve reading pages and looking at content on smaller screens (under 800px). Several of the coding adjustments also allowed for larger image thumbnails for mobile users, which should make browsing content a lot easier. A large focus was to the Gallery, Slideshow, and Video systems, however anywhere that you

Introducing Tools

October 30th, 2018
Have you ever found yourself wondering the best way to figure out how to convert from one unit to another? Perhaps you're interested in figuring out how many cubic yards of material you'll need for a rock path or how much bark chips you'll need to cover your garden bed.

Today I'm happy to announce that we've just completed our first set of Site Tools which will allow you to:

Updates Galore

September 20th, 2018
We have been doing major updates to the system that drives the site for several months now, and at the end of all of the coding updates comes more data. I'm happy to say that we just finished adding over 80 new terms to our Terminology listing, as well as we've added over 20 items to our new set of pages in the Wiki system.

In the coming months you can expect to see more work on our Hardiness Zones and more terms and Wiki entries (with more more pictures coming).

For our users outside of

Gallery Overhaul

August 3rd, 2017
I'm happy to say that I've just put the finishing touches on the Gallery system; it'll now properly list items by their pages, and the newer design makes it a lot easier to navigate.

Due to some Facebook updates over the last couple of months, several portions of the original layout just didn't work anymore (such as only being able to view page 1 of each album).

Hardiness Index Overhaul

January 18th, 2017
This week we have overhauled the Hardiness Zones feature of our site to support International Zones, we also have a cleaner display for the various North American zones that we've listed in the past.

We have also added some data for Baltic States, Scandinavia, and some parts of Europe (more to come). As you'll note, each map covers several countries, so we provided information for those maps much like we've presented information for North America such as dialing codes, basic information abou

Forum Upgrade (September, 2016)

September 1st, 2016
We have been beta testing the initial builds of the new version of the UBB.threads forum software here for some time; one thing that's been holding us back from the latest updates (which also include updates for mobile users) has been that the new date coding hasn't been completed (and still isn't as of this writing), so I modified it to use the old date coding.

This upgrade gives us many changes to how the forum functions (you can click here to read changes, we went from April 4th to August

In the coming weeks we'll be applying updates to the main site (not the forum) which can break several sections; we're aware that certain areas may not even work until the update has been completed.

We will keep you informed as the near completion of these updates; for up to date changes please see the Facebook Notification of this update.

8/27 @ 10 PM: I have got most of the "Front End" (what you, the user sees) done, the only lingering portions are sections that we do
