Advice from the Owner

I was surprised that so many plants bloomed this year - I thought it would take a few years to mature. I dug out 144 sq ft of good sod with shovels - NEVER again! Very consuming of time and energy, and no one wanted the sod. Next time I will rent a sod cutter from Home Depot.
