Think of a landscaped garden as another house, just one without a roof. It can have different areas for relaxing, areas for playing, areas for wandering and areas for dining. In fact, a landscaped garden introduces a whole new lifestyle. And as a garden is ever evolving, you can add features that reflect your individuality at any time.

Gardening is good exercise

There will be some work to do to keep your landscaped garden gorgeous. If you enjoy gardening, this can only be a bonus.
