The "right-wrong" diagram is a landscaping score card which we've adapted from a farmstead score card put out by the Agricultural Extension Service at Ohio State University. You may not agree with all of the things listed here — some points are largely a matter of personal taste and a great deal depends on your locality. But we think you'll find this score card very useful just the same, for checking over your own place and finding ways to improve it.
