October is here, leaves are falling. Naturally, I have landscaping on my mind. Naturally.
I have never lived in an apartment with any kind of outdoor space which is a bummer because I do love plants + I like to think that I would take the time to make my outside look as nice as my inside. My siblings are both real adults now + have both purchased homes in the past year. Unlike their better halves, they both are quite fixated on how to improve their outdoor spaces. I am going to assume that this trait runs in the family.
