Home & Garden leads with a story that would never have been written a decade ago. It's all about how to deal artfully with the massive black slab of plasma hanging on your wall.

Happily this is a design challenge we don't plan to take on, but for those of you with the big flat screens, the article just might provide some ideas, options and relief.

Also from H&G this week:

A Trim or a cut?: For the gardener - techniques and rules for pruning. The best and worst times to prune and where to start.

Relaxed Rugs: The increase in sales and popularity of contemporary rug designs.

Things to do in the garden in April: Tasks to do this month in both edible and ornamental gardens. H&G To Do List: News to use for your home life. Know it, Read it, Buy it, Visit it, Watch it, and Surf it (guess what - the web tip is to check out Apartment Therapy.com!).
