Maybe you love working in the yard, it can be like therapy. But if you are like me you prefer to have a yard that works for you, and not vice versa. Our illustrations for the Lagom House has always shown such a yard. Small enough to not consume your free time that you want to spend elsewhere but large enough to function in a way that brings you joy and utility. Room for a small veggie garden, and fenced yard for drying laundry away from the romping kids and dogs. A potting bench behind the garage, out of site. A front yard big enough to give you some buffer from the street, but small enough to trim in 10 minutes. Ahhh, that's sub-Urban living at its best.
