A bit over a 1/2 acre in a country neighborhood. I started in June of 2010 when I bought a foreclosed home on a bit over 1/2 acre. The grass hadn't been watered (other than rain) in over 9 months. The backyard was completely barren- No plants, no bushes, no trees- well, there was ONE small, dying oak tree, approx. 2 1/2 ft tall... but I didn't count it, and dead grass- This yard was a CHALLENGE for me, and I gladly accepted!
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.
YardShare member Masman35 in Sioux City is looking for some ideas to boost the appeal of a very plain yard. This homeowner doesn’t like the rocks or the existing bushes...
