My house doesn't has any garden because i live in an apartment in the city. But my parent has some garden in my hometown. My parents are farmers. They plant coffees, durians to buy. Sometime when my mom has free time, she plants vegetables, corncobs... she also feed chickens and ducks. They worked hard to give their children a good life. I love them.

Hello admins,

I just wanted to ask you how to use the word 'adjacent'. In my previous post, I used the word as a verb, but perhaps it doesn't have a verb form. So would this sentence be acceptable?
"My garden is tiny but it is adjacent to other nearby gardens with each other. So I can enjoy viewing a bigger garden than it was supposed to be!"
Correct me, please.

Hello Rafaela1

In the sentence in this comment, 'adjacent' is used correctly, but it sounds a little strange since it is a formal word and the rest of the sentence is not. Most of the time, people would say 'next to' here. What I'd recommend is something even simpler: 'My garden is tiny, but since it is next to other gardens, I can enjoy viewing a bigger garden!' 

All the best

yes, my house has a big garden. There are many trees which is grown by my parents , especially fruit tree such as : mango tree, jackfruit tree, guava tree,... Moreover there are some vegetables to eat such as : potatoes, spinach,....there are also a lot of grass so sometimes my father use a lawn mover to cut it. The garden is covered by a hedge to avoid being buffalo destroy.

No, i do not have garden in my house. But i am fond of plants, hence i have planted some small plants on my roof. so that i can enjoy greenery. as plants has important role in life cycle. it cleans the air and maintain balance of CO2 and oxygen in atmosphere. Seeing these plants every morning gives me pleasure.

Is it correct this text?

Hello AdrianaPC

I'm afraid we don't correct our users' texts, though we're happy to help with single phrases or sentences. In any case, your text is all correct except for 'spend'. After the verb 'enjoy', we use an '-ing' form.

All the best
