Sorry - to me it's 'Back Yard by IKEA' and personality free.

So many backyards are environmental deserts and could be and should be child friendly havens. Bird and insect attracting shrubs and ground covers are far more attractive to human and other life than the sterile grass square and the inside of the house repeated outside. Impress your neighbours with an environmental approach to your back and front yard and feel good yourself.

I never use a bottle of any poison and found over many years that there is no need as nature balances things up if you give it half a chance with perhaps some mechanical help now and then. Olive.
