Creative, tech-savvy couple creates a hip home

PITTSBURGH — Chris Harrison and his wife, Amy Ogan, honed their creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills while earning doctorates in human computer interaction at Carnegie Mellon University. So when they went looking for a “cool house in a cool neighborhood” in Pittsburgh, they couldn’t help but be drawn to an area popular with artists and arts entrepreneurs, Garfield.

In the Garden: Branch out for Arbor Day this year

Trees are an essential part of the urban environment. Think of the Greater Wenatchee area with only sagebrush, rabbit brush and native grasses. It is not as appealing, is it? Because the trees we have planted moderate the summer heat with shade, break the cold winter winds, and clean the air of dust.

Easy ways to get rid of clutter

One of the drawbacks of getting older is that time brings an increasing accumulation of things. These things litter all kinds of spare space — drawers, shelves, closets and spare rooms. Nearly all of it is clutter. It’s not stuff you really want, but yet it’s hard to figure out what do to with it.

In the Garden: Garden mistakes

I want to share a mistake I made several years ago that I didn’t realize was a mistake until last summer. I like to call this “Wrong plant; wrong place.” (This was before I learned the Master Gardener mantra: Right plant; right place.)

In the Garden: Ornamental grasses can add zip to your garden

Dependable, easy care ornamental grasses are top-notch candidates for year-around interest. The majority are prized for their airy, graceful shapes that shimmer with just a hint of breeze. It’s an interesting group of mostly trouble-free plants with many that thrive in our climate.

In the Garden: Start planning now for a fire-wise fire season

North Central Washington is a complex natural environment to live in. Fire has been a part of this place for millennia — erasing and re-writing the landscape and enlivening the forest with new growth while eliminating the overstock of debris and turning it back into accessible nutrients.
