Scooby Doo or Scooby Don't?
Would I take every square inch of my backyard and put in an above-ground pool, with white marble chips as a surround, then stick in Scooby Doo and Warner Brother's cartoon characters? Never in a million years.
But when the owner was showing me around she told me that the whole backyard was put together for her grandkids and they LOVED coming to grandma's house. She even looked wistful, as if she'd rather be with them than showing garden snobs around her yard.
THIS should be a prize-winning garden design because it elicits the exact visual & emotional result the garden designer intended -- the grandkids look forward to visiting grandma.
