Do any plants compete successfully with poison ivy?

I've been looking around (books, Google), trying to find a plant which can compete successfully against poison ivy for land/space. So far no luck so giving AskMeFi a try. I live in New England and want to eliminate this pest from wooded areas of my lot in an environmentally friendly manner.

How do I fix my shed roof?

Our shed roof is falling apart - the underlying wood seems fine, but the waterproof layer (felt?) has in part blown off in a recent gale. I plan to buy a roll of something on the internet, strip off the remaining waterproofing, and then attach the new stuff. So my questions are: What do I need to buy to put on the roof, and how do I attach it?

How Can I Make Steps from Recycled Material?

I need some ideas to build 5 outdoor steps leading up to a door. Must be steps that can be built in the most quickest, cheapest and easiest of ways. I'm open to any unconventional plans - and of course would appreciate photos of the ideas. Right now I have at my disposal cement mix and tons of building rubble made from concrete. Wondering if the rubble can be recycled to build with. Any ideas - much appreciated!

What sort of garden shredder should we get?

We've got a garden. We don't have a car. Soon, the garden is going to change and produce a lot of waste vegetation (that hedge has to go, etc. etc.). So I'm looking at purchasing a garden shredder, and I realise I know nothing about this sort of thing. Is a petrol powered shredder that much better than a good electric one? Is there anything else I should know about these machines? [more inside]

Shade Tolerant Plants

Shade-tolerant plants! I have a small raised bed outside my door which is in deep shade, under a large white pine tree. I'm in coastal New Hampshire, Zone 5, somewhat moderated by the ocean effect. The soil is on the acidic side but is easily augmented. It's quite moist. I don't need veggies because I grow them in a community garden, but herbs would be nice, or just ornamental things. Any ideas as to what might grow?
