Men In, Lawns Out
Also on this year's ins and outs list: Large shade trees. It really saddens me to see them called "out". I see too many suburban neighborhoods with dull stretches of grass and a squarely-groomed bush or two. I wish builders would learn how to build without chopping everything down. With shade trees, there's less of a need for wasteful watering. And here's a thought: Kids might even enjoy having a tree or two to play in.
Lastly: Men in the garden. They are in! My husband loves the garden. It helps him unwind from work. He loves being outside and building something. He loves growing things to cook with.
Men in the garden...definitely in!
