Advice from the Owner

We love not having to mow and water a front lawn. We erected a slab of sandstone on which we painted a mammoth, a bear, and a chamois in the style of 35,000-year-old cave paintings in France. We wanted to make our garden unique! Advice: The tender young plants we got from the Garden In A Box kit were being eaten by rabbits. We sprayed a cayenne pepper spray to keep the bunnies away.
