Plant Hoarding

Rule #1: In general, keeping plants in their pots is strongly discouraged. If you simply can’t muster the energy to remove your plants from their pots (yes, trips to Home Depot can be exhausting), use the following formula to calculate the maximum number of potted plants you should have in your front yard:

x = (y/50) – (v2 + s)

A negative number indicates that under no circumstances should you place a potted plant in your front yard.

x = maximum number of potted plants recommended for front yard
y = number of square feet in front yard
v = the number of vehicles/boats/RVs regularly parked in your driveway or elsewhere in your front yard
s = the number of statues in your front yard
