Helium's Landscaping Web Site
The Helium network offers a community that "shares on everything from politics to parenting advice, to pop culture, to the environment and more." Lisa Beach is part of the mix, providing information on such topics as landscaping jobs and garden edging.
Yard Share is a Web site where both homeowners and professionals submit photos of well-landscaped yards, thereby sharing their ideas and expertise online. Interesting concept! The Webmaster selects his top picks for inclusion in a "This Week's Featured Yards" honor roll, and you can compare landscaping techniques in a discussion forum.
