My yard is a disaster. It's gotten to the point where we're wondering if the neighbors will complain. I love gardens, flowers and lovely outdoor spaces, but at this time in my life I don't have the time, or resources to have an extensive garden, or well-manicured yard.
I've started a low maintenance yard/garden Pinterest board for inspiration, and would love to hear your ideas for how to create a low water, low maintenance, and low cost yard/garden. It would be nice if it was pretty too (:
A few things to keep in mind:
- The Bay Area always seem to be in a drought, or on the edge of one, so low-water plants are key.
- The front yard is partly sunny and partly shady. The soil is acidic from a cedar tree pouring its needles all over it.
- The backyard is totally shady.
- I'm a terrible plant water-er. You don't want to see my house plants . . .
Thanks for your help!
