Recently moved to the region and currently working on my garden. I would like grow lawn in the garden (size of approx 20m2) but have been advised it's too expensive to maintain considering  irrigation costs. Is this true and what are my options? Not looking for a super duper looking grass in this particular area of the garden but more of a wild look. Would appreciate advice soon on this matter as I am trying decide on the way to go by next week. Thanks.

Just discovered segundamano.es which is a bit like Gumtree. So I've put lots of things in for sale. So for made over 500 euros. It's great fun and it really is time to shift some of the "trastos". You can see my bits and pieces under Palamos.

Hello - We are thinking of going away for a month later this year and I'm not keen on leaving the house empty for such a long time. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I don't want to run the risk of coming back to find everything has been stolen. Has anyone here used a house-sitter for situations like ours and how did you find the right person to do the job? Also, what would be typical in terms of remuneration? Looking forward to hearing from you all.

We want to redo our shower room, new w.c.,sink, shower area and new tiles on walls and floors.We also need a extractor fan put in. The room is small, approx 3m x 1.5m. We have had a quote for 6900 euros and thought it was rather high. Any opinions?

We would like to refurnish our house, slowly in the next year and find the cost of transporting sofa's and wardrobes from Barcelona, where we have seen loads of things we like to Pals prohibitive. Looking for nice furniture shops from Palamos to Figueres, any ideas or recommendations?

We've been thinking of setting up a (wildlife) pond and wondered if anyone reading the forums has experience of doing this. Information on size, depth, plants..anything welcome. Obviously, i've googled a lot, but theres nothing better than hearing from someone who has "done it themselves".

I had an old barrel as decoration in my house but have found that the metal ring on the base has left some rusty marks on the floor tiles underneath. I've tried scrubbing with hot water and bleach but it didn't have much of an effect. Can any of the forum readers offer an idea of what I can use to get the marks off?

I have seen a few bonfires going before before I light mine, I thought I'd check - it is officially allowed now?

Does anyone know if there is a product that we can paint outdoor furniture (just the basic white plastic stuff you see everywhere) that will make it look less shabby and hopefully last longer?

I'm renovating a fireplace and there are some rather charming old tiles around it that I thought it would be nice to rescue and use in the garden in a decorative feature. Any ideas on how to get as many off as possible without breaking them?
