You cannot seriously say your house is your home till you decide to have a garden. You are not going to truly comprehend the importance of good garden care until you own your first home. It is quite possible that at the time you were young and living with your parents, you did not understand the amount of effort your parents put into having a garden. You could have possibly thought they were a little insane spending so much time on a garden. With your own house, you now are in command on how everything should look on the inside.
