He describes a place where he can sit and have his coffee in the morning and have friends over for a BBQ on weekends. He is on a pretty tight budget, about $5000. Although he likes colorful plants, he would like to utilize the garden on nice winter days and doesn’t want it to turn into a bunch of dead weeds when the weather turns.
