My husband and I just built our new home 3 years ago on 40 acres and have about a 5-6 acre yard and where I come from was nothing but woods and peace and quite and now I live next to a major county hwy. and get really annoyed with the noise and the fact that I no longer have that kind of quitness of the northwoods anymore and I'm also getting extremely frustrated with this certain part in the center of my driveway . It's one of those circle around types and I've tried planting shrubs and flowers there but they keep on dying on me and people keep on running over my border around the edge which just makes me mad because of all the hard work I've put into it and keep failing. Anyone out there with some great advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
