It’s not every day you see someone laying out a bunch of windows on their lawn – so anyone passing by Kirk Lewellen’s house must have wondered what on Earth he was doing. But if they’d walked past again a few days later, they’d have seen exactly what he was up to. And the results of his project are astonishing.
For many people, gardening is an excellent way to de-stress. After all, it gets you out in the fresh air, away from the screens and constant emails that may otherwise monopolize your thoughts and time. And not only does it give you something to do with your hands, it can also have practical benefits if you grow your own fruits and vegetables.
However, if you’re not completely happy with the current state of your garden, there are plenty of cheap ways to improve it. Something as simple as cutting your grass into a particular shape, such as a circle or rectangle, can instantly transform it. Meanwhile, year-round Christmas lights can add a touch of glamor for relatively little cost.
