I'm a mother of two kids, 12 and 14 (yikes!). We live in a suburb with postage size yards, so you really have to plan to make the most of it. Most folks around here have their yards professionally landscaped, but I have neither the inclination (or the money!) to do that. I'm big into laziness though, and therefore I'm into perennials. When we moved here our yard was a plain rectangle of grass, period. My husband still says he wishes we could have just paved it. So, even if I don't have the greenest thumb, at least it isn't concrete! I secretly believe the neighborhood thinks of me as "the crazy vine lady" because Boston Ivy covers the ENTIRE back of my house (two-story, ground to roof) and crossvine and jasmine cover ALL of the fences (wood now mostly invisible). But like I said, there's not much space here so even vertical space is up for grabs as far as I'm concerned!

I live in: United States

My zone is: z8 DFW Tx
