Advice from the Owner

This entire area was covered in river rocks. The previous owners used it for RV parking. We don't own an RV, so we added some color and dimension to our front yard with a Garden In A Box kit. I raked the rocks to the side, added mulch, and planted 20+ native, drought-resistant plants in 2021. Thanks to all the rain this year, the garden sprung to life. We have pollinators, purples and yellows, and a thriving garden. Thanks!
