Garden Mood Killers
I took the time to have my home professionally landscaped and the last think on my to-do list was to either install a screened-in porch or patio off the back of my home. I finally went with a blue fieldstone patio. I love it, I finally got the chance to sit out and enjoy my garden, the wildlife and the quiet.
Nothing lasts long, within a week or two of my patio installation, my next door neighbor, installed a 14' trampoline with cage, just on the other side of my 6' privacy fence. Of course the prime use times are early morning and late evening when I sit out.
I guess my interpretation on the use of out-door space is quite different from my neighbor's, but in the end, it is his interpretation that wins.
