If you are walking distance from a school or park it alleviates the need
For as much land for the kids to run around.
I have to say I feel like I put more work into my property than I feel like hours enjoying it outside. If I’m outside I’m always aware of work that needs to be done... it’s a constant battle. Weeding, Watering, mowing, leaves, picking up sticks, gutters, trimming, edging, demossing, fertilizing, spreading mulch... I do way more hours of those things it seems than sitting out there enjoying it. Kind of sad when I think about it
