Super small yard now has an in-ground spa
When I bought my (very small) house, it had a very small yard, a lot of shade and the grass wouldn't grow very well. In 2002, I decided to give up on the grass by putting in a pond/water garden with gravel surrounding it, all of which I did myself. After enjoying my pond for so many years, I always wished I could "swim" in the pond on hot Texas afternoons, so during the past couple of months, I changed the pond out for an in-ground spa of the same shape and size. After the spa was finished, I had to re-landscape the yard yet again and re-laid 2200 lbs. of gravel, but it was well worth it. It can also be heated and 8 jets turned on for lots of relaxing bubbles. Glass of wine in the spa, anyone?
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
Landscapes are usually most stunning during those times of the year when you can actually see the ground. But there is an eerie beauty to a yard covered in freshly fallen snow as well.
