My wife and I did not have any interest or experience in gardening until we bought our first home six years ago. We both worked in aviation at the time, so we originally were looking at condos because we did not want to worry about yard work when we were away from home.
But we decided a house featuring a blue spruce and ivy in the small front flower bed and a row of privet in the back for privacy located in a neighborhood next to Lake Erie would be a better choice.
