|Hi! I just bought a house and it has a nice terraced back yard with some open space. I'm looking to do 2 things this summer: 1. Do some landscaping around the house and along the terrace with flowers, greenery, etc. and 2. Start a small vegetable/herb garden. I live in Jackson, MS, and I wanted to know the best flowers/vegetables to use for my area - low maintenance. Also, I have a dog.|
