My yard is a nightmare and I need some serious help. (step by step) if its any indication i planted an evergreen at my last home and it died. Given the fact that this is a mobiel home park and I am broke i want to keep costs very low and do it my self if it will make it cheeper. I want lots of flowers in the front but have not a clue how to build flower beds that would look good. I do know that i want a lilac bush or several in one place becuae i love picking the flowers in summer and putting them in a vase. I need a deck out back and stairs to the water and then an additional small platform by the water. maybe i could put the stairs and additional platform later? anyway on the side of the house i would like to have a vegetable garden in a box i guess and then stepping stones or a walk way of some kind out to the front sidewalk but i need something i can use in winter too because i would like to use the side entrence as a primary entrance for our family insted of the front door. The other side of the home is reserved for a shed space and it will sit in the front next to my neighbors shed. please give any and all advice as to how to do this materials needed approx cost ect. I have never decorated a yard in my life and it would be nice if i could get some much needed help. thanks
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.
