Strange House Warming Gifts

Posted on August 19, 2008 @ 4:56 pm

When we bought our first house, we were truly excited.  Not only were we moving on from living in our small apartment, but we were finally going to have a place that belonged to us.  We wanted to make it our home, so we decided that we would come up with our own landscaping design ideas for our property.

We tried our hand at creating a perfect yard, but honestly, we failed badly.  We didn’t know anything about lawn or lantana care, and as such, we ended up with no plants left after just one short month.

Upon hearing our stories, my parents rushed out an bought us some books on landscaping designs to help us learn what to do.  It was a strange gift, but I know that they mean well.

We’ll have to wait until next year to try out the skills that we have learned from the book – maybe next year, our yard will be something to be proud of.
