Advice from the Owner

We absolutely love our now xeriscaped small yard, that was difficult to mow under the tree! It’s so easy to change the spray irrigation nozzles to drip manifolds and close off the ones that are not needed. Can’t wait until spring to see how the plants fill out the space. Love the flagstone walkway to the bench, which allows us to sit and enjoy our yard.
