Advice from the Owner

We planted our first garden in a box May of 2022 and loved every minute put into it. It was pretty awesome to see how very little water is needed compared to our neighbors that water their grass lawns 2x a day. And the best part is we get a ton of compliments on how nice it looks. It brings me joy every time we see bees and giant bumble bees hanging in our little garden. Can’t wait to get more garden in a box next year and have our full front yard as a pollinator oasis!
