Each house offers a slightly different problem for the aspiring gardener. If the front yard is deep, there will be room for more plants than if the house is close to the street. The locations of the driveway and garage are other factors to consider, and the degree of slope of the front yard. Truly nothing is sacred about the scheme as it is, unless a very fine specimens can not be moved. And then there’s your lawn. Most lawns are good fertilization and reseeding of bare spots at least once a year. If you are discouraged about weeds and crab grass, fertilizer will help the good grasses. Tarred paper, or an old rug or a piece of cloth, will nip out crab grass. And the new herbicides are worth mentioning.
