Another Before & After

Imagine your landscape looks like the first photo. Let’s say you drive home every day to this patch of grass a tree and a couple of shrubs. Every weekend you haul out the lawnmower (or have your mow and blow guy come by). It’s not very inspiring, but you do it to keep things maintained. Now look at the second photo…color, texture, birds, butterflies! The landscape changes with the seasons. The maintenance entitles some pruning a few times a year and a periodic checking of the drip system. It’s beautiful and inspiring. When you drive up to your home and see something inspiring instead of something that’s unattractive, something wonderful happens…inspiration works on many levels. If perhaps your day was difficult and you drove home in a bad mood, when you pull up and see the beauty of nature, the beauty in your OWN yard, That is mood altering! By making the change from lawn to no-lawn, you’ll not only be conserving water, creating a new habitat, but it will make you FEEL GOOD!
