Advice from the Owner

I love that my new landscape is diverse and colorful. Bees, butterflies and birds come to visit, collect nectar and pollinate. I have plants that flower at different times in the season offering a changing landscape. Converting my sprinkler system to a drip system was easy enough. I enjoy not having to mow or weed too much now. I really just like how organic and natural it all looks and am so glad I did the work to get rid of my turf.
