Advice from the Owner

What I like most about the landscape is that it is waterwise and we used more fire-wise plant options. All the rock hardscape will help with our fire mitigation efforts. The Resource Central and Garden In A Box staff was helpful and informative during the process and I appreciated all the varieties of flowering plants for the landscaping. I'm hopeful that after several growing seasons, the rocks will take a backseat to the lovely flowers and plants.
