After stressing out about months of super slow sales, we have had a huge boom yesterday and today for our online sales due to a newsletter I sent out yesterday morning.
Now, I'm stressed about being short handed and full of work... which I vastly prefer.
I've spent 4 hours working on an $1800 order.... so far we have most of her items in stock... *crosses fingers* However, my energy is fading like dying light right now. Customers in store are so demanding today.
Plan tonight: treating self to giant chipotle burrito to sustain self, and then renting HOP. and then sleeping.
Imagine how depressing a street would look built only of concrete, tar, and wood.
Some people end up growing tree's to cover their homes
they're useful for owners who might want to expand on the size of their home.
Also useful for isolating pedestrians; keeping them away from looking into the home/being to close to it.
Like marm said, they're also used for accentuating the appearance of the home.
Most homes have drives; which are used for parking more cars/extending space for turning in/avoiding traffic problems, so the yard parallels the length of those drives.
In some countries, front yards are necessary for noise control, and collecting dust that might otherwise enter the home.
help produce more O2
I'm sure there are plenty more practical reasons, but I can't think of any at the moment. Most of these are assumptions.
In the UK you could add "socialism" to the list of reasons for front gardens or yards, a lot of socialists imagined that a street full of gardens meant they could create on a small scale a more pastoral way of life, spend times outside of the hous with their neighbours and they detested urbanism and over crowding.
Some of them, who were part of the allotments movement, which was patches of lands in the towns and cities where people could have gardens which were not attached to their properties/houses/homes, imagined that people could grow food for themselves and their families.
In the UK but also globally, the disappearence of earth, soil gardens, often with trees or plants has contributed to flooding in some urban centres, the water cant drain away and the there's no root networks or anything like that.
