Landscaping Designs Can Ease Stress From Sandwich Generation Issues

by Kaye Swain

Hooray! Spring is springing, leaves are greening, and buds are blooming. It's one of my two favorite seasons of the year! It's a great time to take the grandkids for a scooter ride around the block, do some spring cleaning in the house, and, perhaps, have a chat with our elderly parents about simplifying their landscaping designs to make it easier for them to care for.  🙂

Spring is great for talking with elderly parents about simplifying their landscaping designs

For that matter, it's a good time for us to look at what's going on in all of our Sandwich Generation families, assess our current and probable future situation, and decide if we need to make any changes to our own landscaping designs.

When my dad was in hospice and one of my daughters was going through a difficult pregnancy, the roses didn't get trimmed and the fruit trees didn't get picked. For one year, it wasn't too bad, but it did add a bit of extra stress. If it looks like things might be a little more busy than normal this year, simpler landscaping designs can help de-stress our lives just a bit.
