Mediterranean Landscape Design - Courtyard - Drainage
=========================================

This is the second video of the Mediterranean landscaping
project.

In this lesson we'll look at the courtyard and how we prepared
and designed for proper drainage. Considering and preparing for
drainage is important in all landscaping but even more important
in enclosed areas such as courtyards. Interesting.

Not about Landscaping - Fresh Bread Code
=========================================

While this has nothing to do with landscaping, lawn, or garden,
I found it interesting and wanted to share it with you. And if
you're the person who squeezes the bread at the store to check
for freshness, you'll probably find this interesting as well.

I've never paid close attention to it, but supposedly bread is
delivered to the grocery store five days a week. And unless the
store sells everything on the shelf, there could possibly be
week old bread on the shelf.

Squeezing the bread may give indication that it is still soft
but it may not be accurate for freshness. The sure way to tell
what day of the week it was delivered and how fresh it is, is
by the color of the twist tie.

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow

So if you buy bread on Thursday, you wouldn't want a white twist
tie. It would be almost a week old from last Friday.

The colors are grouped to the days of the week alphabetically
so they should be easy to remember. Monday = B, Tuesday = G,
etc.

Free Landscaping Software
=========================================

Somehow I thought there would be more free design programs than
there are. Not much to speak of. As far as quality and actual
usability, most are marginal. But still, you might find them
useful.
