In front of our new home at 920 NE Quimby Ave, Bend, Oregon there are flowers left over from the previous owners of our house. We were so busy the during short spring planting season we didn’t have time to do any gardening, and we decided to zeroscape (neologism) our front yard. That gardening strategy means, only those things which will grow with very little human input, such as watering, (xeriscaping = dry gardening) will be planted or maintained.
