Q: My neighbor blocked my window when they renovated their house. My wall looks bare because of the view of hollow blocks. What should I do to have a nice wall? Any pocket-friendly suggestions? – Jheck Pablo via Facebook 

A: Losing your view of the outdoors can be disappointing—another wall just makes you feel holed-up in your room. If your neighbor doesn't mind, why don't you hang some plants on their wall so you still get some semblance of the outdoors?  

There are many DIY vertical gardening styles that are inexpensive—you can even use old milk cans and drain pipes as planters!
