I really don’t like the word “Yard”.
It doesn’t seem to do justice to what is present in the front, side and back of your home.
And so, I prefer to call them “front gardens”, “side gardens” and “back gardens”. I did rant about this a bit a while ago and if you like reading ‘rants’ like mine, feel free to read it: “Do You Have a Garden or a Yard”
One area that many homeowners struggle with, is what to plant in their side gardens. It can be an awkward place with little sun and not much room for plants to grow.
Last weekend, I visited a client’s home for a landscape consult. While I was talking with her, I was struck by how nice both of her side gardens were.
