Auralie, with a gardening husband comes a whole new set of problems.  I 
selfishly like to make the decisions in selecting the plants, design, etc.  I truly 
appreciate my husbands approach to gardening and that is as he says 'if you 
are happy, I am happy'.  He helps with preparing the ground for a new bed, 
manages the lawn (very well done), handles most of the watering, maintains the 
edges of the bed and spreads mulch. He does tend to overwater but I will gently 
suggest some plants do not require so much moisture and there are certain 
plants I decide I need to watch more carefully & will water.  Mulching is not as I 
would do but I quietly remove the mulch from the iris and move the mulch away 
from the crown of the hostas & other plants.  I do all the planting, weeding, 
deadheading and pruning.  It works for us!
