Creating a landscape over time

A new home in a new subdivision is a blank canvas for homeowners who are Do-It-Yourselfers. Tammy Algood visits with one of the plant-lovers who worked together with her spouse over 30 years on this landscape. We tour their pleasing and pleasant backyard featuring trees, border beds, raised beds, and container plants. They also have functional and interesting hardscapes for gathering.
