We became gardeners after moving to a Frank Lloyd Wright style modern home, with windows that looked out into the yard. We began to redo things knowing pretty much nothing about gardening. The stories told here blog by blog show that anyone can make their yard better for themselves, their family, and for the environment, without spending a fortune, and having an immense amount of fun.
