If I could learn any trade in the world, I would want to try my hand at landscaping. I think it would contrast nicely with my future endeavors in writing. After a day of staring at a computer screen, going outside and playing in the dirt would be a welcome relief to my tired eyes. Breathing in nature and molding it into something creative for me and my family to enjoy would be a way to ease my spirit and relieve some stress.
When I was in junior high and high school, I had the responsibility of mowing the yard along with much despised household chores. I grew to love the routine of making lines back and forth until the entire yard was trimmed. I figured out I’d rather do the yard than anything in the house.
I would get a kick out of learning to plant trees and differentiate between them. So, I can know which kind will thrive where I live. Designing the layout would be the fun part. Asking myself, where should I put these bushes or should this flower bed be in the middle of the yard or around the edges as if framing it? So many decisions. I wish I was in the position to start a home project of that nature.
In my future, I plan on learning enough to make a decent outdoor wonderland to get lost in. Landscaping is the most wonderful option to make my little piece of the world beautiful.
