Over the Rail


There are many reasons why we love our little mountain house on three acres. With no really close neighbors and trees all around the edges of our property we have a little more latitude in how we landscape our yard. We keep the area around the house trimmed but not manicured, by having someone weed whack it about three or four times a year. At least two-thirds of the property is wooded giving us plenty of green surrounding us in the summer. And the views that the we get when the leaves are off is one of the reasons we love being here in the winter. Another little benefit is that we can just toss the Christmas tree over the rail and it will roll down to the edge of the woods. Later on we can drag it deeper into the woods and it can become habitat for wildlife while it decomposes into the rich earth.
