A quiet spot for mindful meditation. A place to pull pottery or fill scrapbooks. A cozy corner for binge-watching your favorite television shows. There isn’t much that can’t be done in what has been dubbed a “she shed.”

Dear Gail: This is more of just a general question versus a decorating problem. I’m just curious what trends you’re seeing in pet products for our homes. — Stephanie
Temperatures will be in the mid-60s for the big game Sunday. It’s the perfect kind of weather for an outdoor gathering to watch the New England Patriots battle the Atlanta Falcons.
Las Vegas might be the allergy capital of the world. It seems the signs of allergies — sneezing, runny eyes and nasal congestion — are always prevalent in Southern Nevada, whether it’s summer, fall, winter or spring.

Q: We have seven large olive trees on our property. In the past, we used two different local tree services to spray our trees to minimize the amount of olive production. One company told us we needed two applications in early spring, and the other said we only needed one. Both came at a very high cost, and the results left much to be desired. Every day we had to sweep up hundreds of olives. Do you have any suggestions as to what might work and the timing of when the trees should be sprayed?
Recent chilly weather did not deter spring-dreaming Las Vegans who came to the Cashman Center last week to browse hot tubs and landscapers at the Home Improvement and Landscape Expo.

Q: I have a small room with wallpaper that I want to remove. The wallpaper only goes up to a chair rail about waist high, but I’m nervous that the job may get out of hand. How should I approach this task?
Q: I have a lawn that did not do well this last summer. It browned and had a few patches that had some sort of infection and die-off. We added compost in early fall, and the lawn perked up quite a bit, but it browned again considerably even though it is a fescue blend that should remain green through our winter. I think it probably needs another application of compost at some point. When should I add compost again?
