Welcome to our yarden!
Our yarden is the cultivated grounds surrounding our home. It includes what many people would think of as the "yard" and "garden", but we don't consider them to be separate spaces.
In this section of the site, you'll find information on organic gardening, creating useful outdoor living space around your home, maintaining recreational areas that work in harmony with your home and its surrounding environment, and incorporating food production with the creation of an aesthetically pleasing setting for your home. In order to live in harmony with our environment, our yarden is xeriscaped, using drought-tolerant native plants to help improve soil quality, provide food and habitat for native wildlife, reduce the need for additional watering, and avoid problems with salination.
