I will give 25 acorns to the first 10 new members that post to this thread.
New members only for the give away. Just want to encourage new members to participate and hopefully win one of these great prizes. Hurray!

New member here!! I will be looking for my first home within the next 2 months and trying to get as many ideas as I can for landscaping. There is so much info out there it is overwhelming. My husband says I'm crazy but I refuse to buy a home with a small yard because I want plants everywhere. I live in San Antonio and of course it gets hot. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
