    We have some hundred + year live oaks and they are pretty but the darn pollen is a killer every morning I go out there is yellow all over the burb when you wash it off it looks like yellow paint!

    The water oaks are not as bad and have a smoother bark and less pollen none of the long strings

    Yeah, but my wife loves Live Oaks and she loves things that are free. So she really loves free live oaks.

    Yeah, I agree. Less pollen is good, also these are going to be very slow growing as well and I think we'll only be here like 3-5 years at the most, so we'll see.

    Yeah, I saw some of the craftsman stuff at sears the other day. I think those might be in the running too. Either way I would like to get something that will give a built-in look and will all look the same.

    I got a "rug doctor" today and I think I managed to salvage my carpet !!! The water in the holding tank afterward would have literally made you cry. It was BLACK almost like the oil that I changed tonight....

    Anyway, well spent $40.

    Hmm, that might be an idea too...

    Hopefully today I will get the garage cleaned out enough. I have some pictures of what it looked like BEFORE, but we've been SOOO busy that I can't get to the project.

    Not to mention this: The city I live in is Arlington, TX. They only take trash when it comes to them in plastic bags on the curb. You can't put a trash can out there. You can't put trash out in anything that's oddly shaped like a pile of carpet or whatever. They will only lift 50 lb bags and it can't be construction debris!

    This makes cleaning my garage a LOT more difficult! Let me tell you!

    I'll post some pics of the garage momentarily.

    Thanks for the great idea! I'm renting a carpet cleaner to clean a rug for my daughter. I'm going to clean the Suburban's carpet too before I return the cleaner. Not that I would have sprung for new carpets, but it sure would be nice to have a cleaner looking interior.

    Let us know how it works out.

    I washed my Suburban's carpets with a rented Rug Doctor. (Well, my son washed the carpets but I did rent the cleaner.) It got a lot of dirt out--the cleaning fluid was BLACK. But it did very little for the overall appearance because of all the stains. They didn't come out. I'm now going to look for a spot cleaner. Does anyone have any suggestions? My main problem is the same as a previous poster--the splashed coffee stains. Oh, my son cleaned the cloth seats also and they do look pretty good now.
