After building a home at the coast a decade ago and learning to garden in sand my husband and I decided to move closer to our kids and grandkids. We purchased a home on 1 acre along the river a year ago and will start all over again from scratch! (We gardeners love a challenge!) We started in the backyard with a poorly managed lawn and nothing else....so watch our progress! We have a 50' setback from the riverbank and have a view from our master balcony. We did hire a landscape designer to help us and had a contractor do the flagstone and the large trees. We plan to do the small plantings ourselves.
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.
