The key to creating a successful spring garden that lasts into the summer is to plan for it early. Visualize how your garden looked last year, and how you used it. Did some plants not thrive in that space? Were garden items difficult to get around? Perhaps some foliage was trampled because the area lacked a footpath, or the landscape was crying out for a water feature.
Homeowners definitely have advantages over renters. There are the well-known financial rewards of tax deductions and also the security of making a sound investment. Homeowners end up reaping the rewards of their home investment rather than giving thousands of dollars every year to a landlord as a tenant. One of the lesser-appreciated benefits of homeownership is being able to enjoy more privacy.
