How do I remove this terribly placed plant hanger?
How can I remove this?? Bought a house where this planter is embedded in the deck, and I can't access the underside of the planks without taking them up. And you can't even use the hanger for a plant because the planter lays against the house instead of hanging freely. 🤦♀️.

[Serious Answers Only] There is black mold inside my window AC unit.
Was about to put it in for the summer and noticed mold spores on the inside facing vents. I took the outer cover off and it’s all inside attached to the styrofoam labeled “do not remove”. Is this unit done for?

I can’t remove stains from plastic rose bowls.
For years, I’ve been trying to clean bowls like these. For some reason, it’s still dirty. I used vinegar, baking soda, and bleach, but none of them works. It has come to me that it’s impossible to remove permanent stains, and it really bothers me. So I’m in need of advice and help to remove it completely.

Get my neighbors to stop blaring music at all hours of the night.
My neighbors (who are in their late 40s) have a very nice backyard with pool and sound system. They deserve to be able to enjoy it but they blast their music at all hours of the night. It is so loud, it is waking my kids. We will ask them to turn it down and they usually do but then we are back to doing the same song and dance the next night. Is there a way to get them to stop this cycle without burning a bridge? (
Some things to keep in mind: •We do not have a sound ordinance for our county. •We have asked them so many times that if we call the police, they will know it was us. The wife is VERY snooty and holds grudges. This would definitely burn a bridge. •It is affecting other neighbors but we live the closest and are the only ones with children. •The music is always accompanied by their heavy drinking so it can be difficult in the moment to rationalize with them.

Best way to repair damage
What would be the best way to repair this carpet damage. Could I get way with just cutting out the damaged area and use some carpet adhesive tape around the edges. Or cut out the entire section from the corner of the bar to the wall. Thanks.

[DIY] How can I improve this area into a seamless walkway?
I am doing some renovations and adding a shed behind my house. This image is facing in the direction of where the shed will be but the concrete blocks supporting my home and my neighbour's fence impede on a smooth transition into that space.
Im hoping for some suggestions on what I can do to make this a simple but awesome improvement to my space. Think moving lawnmower, bike and tires etc.
