because it’s more about creating a peaceful life and time for family and personal interests, and less about a place to accumulate stuff or a way to impress others.

because it’s more about the experience of light, warmth, fresh air, and natural textures than a show of fussy details and man-made materials meant to look real.

because it’s more about quality and economy, not endless maintenance or replacement and dated materials that end up in a dumpster after a few years.

because it’s more about a garden just steps away and a landscape that supports health and well-being, not a yard that requires constant inputs of harmful chemicals that pollute our water.

because it’s more about looking forward to a future powered by clean energy instead of backward to fossil fuels that endanger our planet and our children’s future.
