I just put in a large flagstone patio and want to know the best short grass to plant between the flagstones. I do not want to ever have to mow.

Use Japanese blood grass or fire maiden grasses. There beautiful in the fall
Can you suggest shrub plants for tropical weather requiring little maintenance and water (for outdoors). I live in the Philippines.
I am helping my parents landscape their new property. The previous owners didn't plant anything. They want to landscape the north and west side of the house. The north side is full shade, and the west side is what I would call dappled to full shade. They live in Zone 5. If you don't have any evergreen suggestions, do you have any suggestions for shrubs that would give winter interest? It's rather drab where they live.

I was trying to get a list of veggies and possible fruits to grow this spring. My family is not picky. We eat just about any fruit and veggie. I'm still learning, so any suggestions would be fine if you have any.
It’s usually better to grow vegetables that you and your family already enjoy in addition to those that are easier to grow. Beets, carrots, lettuce, radishes, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and beans are all good choices for beginners.

Melons are fairly easy to grow as well. This article should help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/melons/growing-melons.htm
What type of plant can I put in my conservatory, as it is cold in the winter and hot in the summer?
cacti will be good, various types with and without flowers
We live in an area which has an abundance of wildlife (deer, rabbits and wood pigeons). My last attempt at developing a vegetable garden (6 years ago) was a disaster and EVERYTHING that I planted got eaten. Can you please suggest to me a list of vegetables that would survive these conditions (e. g. I believe that potatoes will not be touched by the wildlife).
Unfortunately, there are no vegetables that are immune to these kinds of pests, especially deer. You may want to consider building an enclosed vegetable garden to keep them out.
I lived in Maryland for a while and people would build fences around their gardens to keep out the rabbits. The deer would need an extremely high fence, more that 4'.
I have a backyard about 20' X 60'. I also have two large dogs. The dogs have the run of the yard, which is great, but they have turned what was very feeble grass into mud. Is there anything I can put down or any kind of groundcover that will allow them to run around, yet withstand their pounding (and occasional digging) and still look a little bit decent? I'm not worried about anything too beautiful, but I'd prefer something as an alternative to the muddy yard I currently have.
There is not a groundcover that can withstand that kind of damage. You may want to consider some hardscaping options, such as sand or pebbles for the areas they play it.
