Thinking of getting rid of a little more lawn? Besides some of the reasons I've discussed before, people like to improve their garden to make their house look nicer from the street. But often, a garden around the perimeter of your house can only be enjoyed by you from outside - what about inside?
This house on my street just finished adding the garden in the front by the sidewalk. While I'm not crazy about the rocks, and I question the fern in a west-facing unshaded garden, I like the general idea!! If you're going to add some new garden space, why not put it where you can also see it from inside the house.
The bench also adds a friendly and inviting touch.
