After this year of not having enough rainfall, Jeff and I are beginning to think of how we are going to change the front yard so that plants won't need a lot of water. Once he removes those damn ivy, then we have to make sure that replace it so that ivy don't grow back. You may recall about our visit to the a garden when my friend was visiting. There was a particular section of just succulents and this gave us an idea of how we might be able to have something similar. Our only problem is that there's not enough sunshine in the front of the house. But if we can pull it off, this type of plants does not require lots of water and will be less maintenance.
