FIND YOUR DREAM HOME OR APARTMENT
must-see on msn
Very interesting and informative. The only thing additional that I would like to see is a vegetable garden component, so that food can be produced on these properties that can be shared with others who are less fortunate. All of us have a responsibility to use our resources to help others, and an agricultural component would do a lot toward fulfiling that goal.
I also agree ...way to pricey !!!! Who can afford the $200 to $600 yard make over's...let get more ideas for the every day working class...For that amount of money...I would buy a new house with the landscaping done !!!!
Only Hollywood Joe could afford to pay that much for bushes and brick and pools...
Not all who visit the site can afford this prices...Nice to look at ...but not what most of us can afford...!!! We could use more affordable ideas.!!! Thanks
The renovations are remarkable - but largely overdone. We sold what we thought was a beautifully landscaped yard - with mature trees, perenials, and wildflowers. The new owners took it all out - cut down the evergreen trees and lilac bushes - to make it their own. If you are planning to move, let the new owners do what they want. Don't spend lots of money that you won't enjoy. It's just not worth it.
Think green, and share perenials with your neighbors, instead of throwing out the "extras". Trees love to start on their own - especially maples. Put them in a spot of their own and in 20 years they will be mature trees. Buy a small evergreen for Christmas with a hole in your yard already dug. After Christmas, plant it in your yard and enjoy watching it grow. Check out freecycle.com for people that have "weeds" to them but can add dimension to your own yard - coreiopsis, violets, black-eyed Susan's and daisies that come back year after year.
With all the hungry children in the USA I for one find this wasteful spending deplorable. If all you rich folks have so much extra money, find a food bank in your area and donate.
