Advice from the Owner

The bees have already found our new Butterfly Bounty Garden In A Box from Resource Central. We added 2.5 tons of Colorado Pink gravel from Pioneer Sand as a border (and to make the garden space a bit smaller) and built our own drip system using the Rainbird 1800 retrofit kit. Works like a charm! Can't wait to see what it looks like in years two and three!
