I live in California and the weather is not too severe. I don't have any lawn. I have about 8 trees in front, all producing fruit and nuts. Grapefruit, Almonds, Figs, Persimmons, Avacados, Apple, Pear, flowers, and herbs. My backyard has grape vines, cherry trees, 10 citrus varieties, Apple, Pear, Plum, Nectarine, Peach, Boysenberries (a blackberry type) some lettuce and other herbs.
I have an old swimming pool I turned into a fish pond, with water flowers, and large goldfish. I go out in back and can smell the fresh air from all the trees each day.
Yet I live in the city, residential area. So far the neighborhood has been good. Everyone knows everyone else on my street. It is peacful but the neighbors and I made it that way. Mixed neighborhood racially.
On a clear day I can see a mountain that rises over 10,000 feet high.
Many a day I go to my back yard look at the mountain and say to my self "Thanks boss."

Treasure that which you have now. Hug you wife. Caress your children. Call your parents and grandparents. We know not how long we have on this bucket. Don't let a day go by with out fixing your eyes on those you love.
Give back to your community that which has value.
