Advice from the Owner

We love the 2nd year leap our native plants! They provide so much beauty for everyone who walks by our house. We combined 2 different garden in the boxes and had a different shaped area than their design and it still turned out great! We tilled the areas, laid down craft paper and a lot of mulch and it’s kept the weeds back pretty well with a weekly plucking!
