Advice from the Owner

Much more appealing that a bare lawn. Front lawn replaced fall 2020, side lawn replaced spring 2021, both using the Grass to Garden program, plus additional Garden In A Box purchases. Wooden sleepers and colored mulch contrast nicely with the planting. Last fall's plants have come away strongly this spring.
