It is true that many practitioners of horticulture go through pain result of the different tasks related to the practice. However if you watch
carefully how things work in nature the time of pain will less and less. Get rid of the lawn. How many hours of quality time with your
family are wasted irrigating, fumigating, fertilizing, cutting and weeding the sterile lawn?

Plant, propagate those tolerant to disease, with beauty and tolerance to your climate, garden conditions. Avoid formal gardening
unless you do not mind endless hours pruning a silly looking topiary that may/may not be necessary. Rotate your tasks, plan the chores
avoiding more than thirty minutes doing anything. Get a comfortable sit to do planting/weeding. Work when temperature, shade will work for you...that is that for now.
