Hi,

I live in northeastern lower Michigan with my wife and two children. My wife and I are both junior high teachers so I have the summers off to play in the yard. My wife doesn't play in the yard.

Even though I didn't know it at the time, I probably first became interested in landscaping/gardening as a teenager. I was hired by a friend to mow lawns. The two of us mowed 70 lawns with push mowers all summer. I can't say I enjoyed all that work, but I did take some satisfaction in the way the lawns looked when they were done. I used to try to make my mowing lines as straight as possible. Come to think of it, I still do.

When we bought our first house, it came with some flower beds that I had to fill with something. That's when I learned the difference between a perennial and an annual. I eagerly read up on gardening and have loved it ever since.

Four years ago we built a new house and I got to start my yard all over from nothing. It's not nearly done and I don't think it ever will be. If it does get done I'll have to move again!

I live in: United States

My zone is: z4-5 MI
