To have a sturdy building, you’ve got to have a good foundation. The same could be said of plants – having good soil can make or break your garden. Before you can improve the quality of your soil, you first need to know what good soil is.

Have you ever noticed that as we get older, soft lighting makes us look better? Well, the same often holds true for landscaping. Even the most luscious, green, and perfectly manicured yard is even more magical at night when it’s been strategically lit.
It’s rare to find a painting that’s sufficiently weather-proof to hang on an exterior wall. So, you’ve got to find other ways to deck these spaces with art. Metal work is nice, and so are tile murals. But there’s nothing like a fountain to add sound and motion to your outdoor décor.
There’s nothing quite like a pond in the landscape. Gorgeous focal feature, destination spot, miniature ecosystem of aquatic plants and animals. Lucky for DIYers, it’s also relatively easy to pull off. If you’re pondering a pond for your garden, take a quick peek at how some of your fellow YardSharers have done it.
Ornamental grasses are multi-task plants: they offer attractive foliage, flowers and seedpods; their beauty is heightened by sunlight and they dance with the wind; they require little maintenance; they provide almost year-round interest in the garden—and—they are problem solvers for less-than-ideal sites in the yard.
I know what you’re thinking! “Just another landscaping blog, right?” Wrong…sort of. Yard Ideas is not going to be a place where I sit here on my pedestal as the YardShare founder, passing along super important advice for how you should manage your yards. Nope…the theme of YardShare has always been Knocking Down Fences. We are a community, of which I am a member, just like you. So Yard Ideas will not only be my ideas, but your ideas!
