Spring is almost here and everyone's thoughts are turning outdoors, specially mine since my children are bouncing off the walls and need to be let loose in some nature. Unfortunately, the yard around our 1950s ranch needs some creative landscaping. Sunset Magazine's, "Landscaping for Modern Living" published in 1956, lends era appropriate inspiration. I especially like the look of "garden work center" and the tiled concrete patio.
