Advice from the Owner

We always refused to water our lawn, and it was mostly a gross mess of weeds and spiky grass. We were able to completely change our yard, and now we have a great foundation to build a perfect Colorado native oasis filled with color and movement. Can't wait for our Garden in a a Box plants to grow!!
