Ah, belle 25, the cobbler's children are always the worst shod. As gardening is your husband's work, the last thing he wants to do is gardening when he gets home. But it would be nice for him to sit and have his dinner on a patio full of plants and wildlife that you have created. I would scrap grass altogether except for a mini meadow full of native flowers, have birdbaths and feeders as the birds must love your trees, fill all corners where you don't walk or sit with pots or troughs of flowers to attract bees and butterflies and have a mini pond for frogs. I would also grow a rose up one of those trees.
