When this happens, it either falls into neglect or you become so isolated in the yard that you can't keep up with what is happening inside the home when the phone rings, the doorbell dings or the dog tears up the cushions on the couch. Having a home with great garden access allows you to easily enjoy the sight and functionality of the outdoor space even on those rainy days when you are kept indoors.
