Our back yard is split into two halves...the patio half and the grass/flower bed half. I did the patio half 3 years ago, but the other half has not got the attention it deserves until now. So this past week, we hired ArborTeck Tree Care & Landscaping of Hayward, CA. They removed a tree to open the yard up a bit, not to mention clean up all of the roots that had come to the surface. This allowed us to replace the sod and create a new raised planter on the side. They dressed up all of the flower beds with weed mat and mulch, plus replaced all our sprinklers and put in a drip system for the beds. We couldn't be happier with the finished product.
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.
