The thought of your own swimming pool, the manicured lawns, or the beautiful English garden in full bloom. It’s lovely to look at, but do you want to spend the time required to keep everything in top working order? Do you have the funds required to hire a full-time landscape architect? In some cases, you may be better suited for townhouse living where yard maintenance is part of the contract, and the local recreation center offers swimming and exercise programs tailored to your lifestyle needs.
