265 (262) My husband and I have worked on our yard for 13 years. We are now retired and enjoying gardening and landscaping. We have done all the work ourselves. I do the gardens and he does the hardscape, grass, shrubs and the woods. We are located in Wisconsin zone 4-5.

"Thank you Lark & Dave for peeking at our backyard... I see you are in Dousman.. my cousin had a place on Pretty Lake(?) near there... we would go there for family get-togethers when I was young (40 years ago!) A very beautiful area, and your nice gardens and yard reflect it nicely. Wish we had that much room!"

"Lark to answer your question about this (n) I don't type that in I think it gets there somehow when it goes through YARDSHARE.

"Lark: Outstanding work!! Congratulations. I am thinking of adding Sweet Autumn Clematis to my garden after seeing Dave and your success! Consider a Patio Peach from Stein's next year. Great dark purple foliage and tasty fruit in a compact plant. I saw it on the Waukesha garden tour last summer and planted on this fall. As a side note, reflecting on a comment made above, Glucosimine and Chondroitin have allowed me to spend hours on my knees without pain. It is after Thanksgiving, so I think I can"

"Thanks again Lark, My mother n law just moved to a senior home and she gave me two nice trellises, a flower pot and a neat bird bath. Can't wait till next spring to incorporate them into my yard. The bird bath is very deep, so I'm thing about doing a bubble fountain in it. The bird bath and the pot are beige and the trellises are black. I may paint some of them, not sure. anyway Lark, thanks for sharing your lovely ideas."

"Lark, You have really got a wonderful yard front and back to work with. You have so many beautiful flowers and some really neat accents. You must spend all day working out there. My yard is so small in comparison to yours, and I'm hoping to make it look great but with low maintenance. "

On November 6,2008 Lark said:

"Karen, thank you for your compliments. The size of a yard doesn't mean beautiful. You have OUTSTANDING bones to your property. I am sure that you will find a perfect plan for a low maintenance landscape and YARDSHARE will be a big help."

"Hey Lark, how are your knees holding up? Your back? nI think I'll open a therapeutic massage business in your neck of the woods and get rich off you and Dave."
