My Yard: A Decorating Update

I’ve spent a lot of time working on my yard. I’m lucky that it’s a large and open space, so I really wanted to make sure that I took full advantage of that. Since landscaping really isn’t my thing, I decided to focus on what I’m good at – decorating and maximizing the functionality of the space […]

Glam Up Your Yard

Compound life doesn’t really lend itself to expressing your individuality. Most compounds try to keep their houses, facilities and anything else as standard and uniform as they can get. It’s not a bad thing, but it can be hard to find a way to distinguish yourself from others or express your own style. Yet… I’ve noticed […]

Pebbled yard for potted plants

Living in Saudi, you sometimes get in a rut and start thinking that you just can’t get the things that you want. I’ll admit, it’s not always available or in the color, size or shape that you want. But having been here for a while now, I’ve realized that you can find almost everything in Saudi […]
