Advice from the Owner

Over 12 years, we have slowly removed grass and created a large flower bed. The front half is established and I replace a few dead plants every now and then. Our tree died last year and it was our 2nd tree in 20 years so we decided to plant flowers instead as they seem to live better. I saw the Garden in a Box offer and took advantage of it. That is the new young plants on the back half of the flower bed. Give them a few years and they will be large, full and happy like the front half. The bees, spiders, bugs and the occasional snake are thrilled with the flower bed and call it home.
