Divided into 5 Chapters:

Chapter 1 – Lifestyle – Enjoy these observations of a former “city slicker.” This introduction to the acreage experience provides observations that urbanites don’t have to contend with.

Chapter 2 – Visitors, Residents, Neighbors, and Critters – City residents have their share of pests and vermin. The author describes (with pictures) some of the common and not-so-common plants, animals, insects and reptiles often found on acreage.

Chapter 3 – Resources – You’re not living in the city anymore, and “what you need” can be a long car- or truck-drive away. Here’s some “words of wisdom” on how to live more independently than you did before.

Chapter 4 – Water, Water Everywhere – From lakes and drainage ditches to floods and hurricanes, the author relates how water resources are managed. Sometimes Mother Nature interferes with that work.

Chapter 5 – Land, Lots of Land (to Work) – From tools and machines to “hiding in plain sight,” acreage provides opportunities. You can keep objects out of the public eye, but also the opportunity to keep you plenty busy!

As a side note, acreage comes with the possibility of planting a garden full of delicious vegetables. See how to make a big compost pile that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, or require fancy machinery.

Another positive reason to move to acreage is this: you can get a ride-on mower. The zero turn models are fabulous once you get a hang of the two steering/propelling arms! I fondly recall my first try. What should have been a beautiful straight line of perfectly cut grass turned out to be a very large, unsightly z shape. I kept overcompensating with the steering arms. It was funny to watch (according to my wife).

Hey, if your purchase of land comes with an old tractor, read A Fortune In Scrap – Secrets of the Scrap Metal Industry, so you’ll know what to do with any scrap you find lying around!
