Allen Klak's garden makes people wonder. How did he and his wife, Iwona, find such a green nirvana in the middle of Little Rock? -- the backyard sloping down a dozen planted and lighted terraces with curving stone walls, graveled paths, fire pits and waterfalls.

It was a much milder May than we are used to, but it is time to start monitoring your garden's water needs, as rainfall typically becomes spotty.

Q I have petu-nias planted in a container on the front porch, which gets afternoon sun. They have already become leggy, and the top where I pour water on them looks smashed down. There are still a few blooms. I deadhead them. Do I need to "cut them back" some way? Will they become "bushy" again with lots of flowers? Or do I just need to consider their time spent and get new ones to plant?

Q I have a Japanese tulip tree. It is several years old, and I have two bushes from the root and have cut all the other shoots off. Would it be better to cut the smaller shoot off and let the larger shoot grow stronger?
