Little Courtyard, Big Style
You don't need a lot of space to surround yourself with a wonderful garden.
How do you own a garden that doesn't own you? If you ask Charlie and Patricia Peay, they'll tell you it's simple -- just downsize.
Two years ago, they grew tired of maintaining a big garden and house and decided to move into a smaller home with a more manageable landscape.
This change took a little getting used to, but the Peays love not having to devote hours to watering and pulling weeds. Now, they spend less time working and more time enjoying their new yard.
