Re: morning/weather/gardening

The way the population is growing around here, I doubt if any amount of gardening or planting can seriously damage property values. Six months ago, one could buy a building site [single family house lot] for $40 thousand; same lot is now $80 thousand. One local house-building company currently has six developments underway--the largest is 231 houses, the smallest 56 houses--most are sold before the first one is built. And the demand for "used" houses is just as great; we regularly have real estate agents coming door to door looking for listings. [Opening gambit is often some variation of "I really like the way you've used plants here on your front patio..."]

And it's raining today. Looks like it's going to keep at it all day, too.

I get brave enough to go up on the roof peak to take the picture. The
hardscapes will make it impossible to sell this.

My last two homes had different landscaping in most folks eyes... and
they both got bulldozed into a nice lawn. .... how sad.

who's concerned with the market?
From many of your messages I've ascertained that you have quite a
to be proud of.  And there's more than the market to determine value.
Besides, we have to balance out all those expansive lawns, don't we?

Your answer, Ceres? >>

Sorry, Kitty, I haven't responded as I guess it will be someone
Recently discussed within a group was the value of landscaping.
landscaping is an asset but beyond will most likely be a negative.
guess I have
created a problem even to market.
