    The article says: "Another great idea -- replace your lawn with a colorful, tasty landscape.

I am appalled that any established business in the market of advertising and media cannot hire a proofreader and that whoever wrote that little diddy knows nothing of grammar. First of all, it should have read "an orchid"; however, I am absolutely certain this SHOULD have read "Start AN ORCHARD for delicious apples."
