Landscaping is not our thing, especially since we travel a lot and then spend the winter months in Arizona. The yard needs redoing anyway. If we did a checkerboard of alternating hard surface and ground cover, what ground covers and hard surfaces would look good with minimum care?
I want to put a new hot tub on my back deck, but don't know what plumbing and wiring are needed. Also the deck is several feet off the ground, so should I reinforce it to hold the extra weight?
