Jeep Compass: Whoever Said Jeeps Weren't Green?
July 23, 2007
Yesterday was a Sunday slotted for home improvements, you know those fix up things that have been sitting on my punch list for weeks if not months waiting to be taken care of. Number one on the list was organizing my back patio and actually making something of the unused space. We began the trek early at a local garden center figuring out what plants and flowers would be right for the beautification without requiring too much in the maintenance category (I've been known to be the cause of death for a number of purchased plants in the past!) The salesman sold me on three times the amount I was originally intending to buy and all was peachy until I had to load my potted purchases into the Compass. Though we had to work quite a bit to shift everything around in order to make it all fit, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of foliage we were able to squeeze into the compact crossover.
Driving home was a bit of a challenge since there was little room for me amid the mini- nursery, but I made in one piece along with my new garden. Extra kudos for the plastic-lined Ultrafloor in the Compass' cargo area, it made clean up of the spilled soil extremely easy and efficient.
