Q: I am remodeling and expanding a room off the kitchen that will overlook a landscaped back yard. I want to include an outdoor patio that will be accessed by sliding glass doors from the new room. Brick is my choice for the patio. I have heard that brick can be laid at ground level without mortar or a cement foundation. Is this a project for a do-it-yourselfer who is a fairly adept handyman? I would appreciate any tips you can provide regarding such an installation and the advantages or disadvantages of this type of project.

Eagle projects are one of the last requirements needed for a Boy Scout to attain the highest rank in Scouting. Recently, Billy McGarity of Troop 8 in Hagerstown began a landscaping project at St. Maria Goretti High School. Members of Troop 8, family members and friends worked on refurbishing the welcome sign at the school. A footer was dug, pavers and weed-control sheets were laid, scrubs were planted and mulch was added to the area. This will benefit the school and all pedestrians who walk by the school.

How many art lovers does it take to install one brick? One dozen, it turns out — when the brick is the final, symbolic piece in an 11-month, $2.5 million project to enclose the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts courtyard. Several major donors to the project joined museum officials and project contractors Thursday morning for a ceremonial laying of the final brick paver in the floor of the renovated courtyard at the museum in Hagerstown's City Park. Now, only a few miscellaneous tasks remain to be completed before the atrium's official ribbon cutting in June, Project Manager Denis Rocco said.

In most cases, a homeowner's driveway runs straight from his garage to the street, and the contractor/homebuilder provides the driveway. But, in other cases, a homeowner is responsible for the driveway, and while he may have the perfect material in mind for his driveway in terms of aesthetics, he needs to plan and keep practical considerations in mind. A homeowner needs to make sure the materials meet his needs and his abilities to deal with them. The homeowner should first consider the activities he has in mind for the driveway.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- New traffic signal poles could be installed on Center Square in Waynesboro by the end of September, but they won't be powered on right away, according to Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs. Grubbs recently presented the Waynesboro Borough Council with an update on Center Square work. He spoke favorably of the speed of construction, although he cautioned a potential standstill is coming. Contractor J.D. Eckman of Atglen, Pa., will pause its work while brick pavers are installed to replace concrete sidewalks, Grubbs said.

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - Lori Bowders never realized how many lives her 19-year-old daughter, Amanda, touched until a tragic sledding accident that claimed Amanda's life in 2007 sparked the small mountaintop community of Blue Ridge Summit into action. Standing in the raw dirt of the new Amanda K. Bowders Memorial Garden this week, Bowders shook her head in awe at the sight unfolding on the square in Blue Ridge Summit. A crew of landscapers, led by family friend Brian Stum of B&D Landscaping, planted a handful of pink dogwood trees around the neatly tilled garden, where earlier in the week local Girl Scouts planted dozens of pink daffodils.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - As winter yields to spring, a homeowner's thoughts often turn to improving that home, and about 200 exhibitors will be on hand this weekend to help turn those ideas into realities at the 25th annual Franklin County Builders Show. "People may say the economy is tight, but we find people spending money on their backyards," said Scott Rosenbaum of Rosenbaum's Landscaping & Nursery, an exhibitor for 22 years at the show. He and Jessee McMath were bringing the outdoors to the indoors of the former County Market at the Southgate Mall with an elaborate display featuring a block patio, pergola, fireplace, plants and a waterfall.
