    @Richard Buse, we've been working on decreasing our overall lawn over the years as well, it's nice to see some of these pictures for ideas.

I love our yard and it just keeps getting better!

    Gardening is good for us. It gets outside and perhaps, see a few bees buzzing around. Plus Andrew Porter shares beautiful photos and helpful tips. Sharing in Lifestyle hive.
