I have 1.5 acres to fill.I started gardening 2004 when we bought this fixer upper with no landscaping but the big trees.With a small front yard I made a cottage style garden. To oneside yard a memory garden,a Septic garden I named hodge-podge,the backyard where we have a drainage ditch across the land. I dug out part of it & made a ditch garden. A vegetable/herb garden.This year Frog Island & fence line border gardens. I love gardening in Knoxville,Tennesse.

"I Deronda and Lark. I've had to remove the ratings and Power Index for the time being due to some issues. I am in the middle of re-designing YardShare and am working on ways to feature the best yards prominently. My goal is to have the redesign done by early January. Thanks!"

"You are really a passionate gardener! Lots of work but oh so fun. Frog Alley for your grandkids is such a cute idea. In our woods and wet area we had ALOT of poison sumac. We didn't know about it when we bought the property and learned the hard way. RASH all over both of us. Some of the poisin sumac had a 5 inch trunk, he used a chainsaw (not knowing what it was) and all the shavings that hit us ended up a rash. Oh well now we use round up to keep it all controlled."
