Featured This Month:

Fall Gardening
Here are a few of Sunset Magazine's suggestions for plants that will keep your garden colorful and bright this fall.
Groundcover for shade: Grow Vinca minor 'Illumination' to brighten low-light garden spaces with its green-edged yellow leaves.
Year-round shrub color: California's valley, inland, and coastal zones are great areas to plant the glossy, gold-marbeled foliage of 'Tequila Sunrise' mirror plant (Comprosma). Its color intensifies to orange and red in fall. Use it to make a hedge or plant it in an equally colorful pot.

It instantly gives you a price range for the job at dealerships and independent auto shops in your area and lists specific places to try. Plus, the site's encyclopedia can help you decipher terms like catalytic converter.

Going Green Tip

Rough Walks
Consider wood chips, nutshells, gravel, or other materials for your patios, walkways, and paths. These porous materials allow water to seep back into the earth, preventing runoff, erosion, and water pollution.
