Some of which include drainage issues, maintenance difficulties, access frustrations, and potential health hazards like unwanted mold growth and damage and decay to the vulnerable parts of our home. So, we have started coming up with someContinue reading “Working with the Yard You Have to Create a Beautiful Space”
So I had an additional day off of work was Easter week for the holiday weekend. I had gotten quite sick with a virus of some sort last week, so although I recovered I still did not have a tremendous amount of energy to do a lot of gardening.

I was looking through some old photos the other day and came across several photos I took at Falls Park of downtown Greenville, SC. I’ve always loved going to parks, botanical gardens, and really any beautiful outdoor space. I especially enjoyed the Biltmore Gardens.
