Advice from the Owner

We received all the help that we needed from Resource Central. The turf removal went smoothly. We purchased two gardens . The wet summer helped the plants to thrive. All of the plants look great. We have had several blooms. We love the time saved from mowing. The greatest benefits are saving water and bringing more pollinators into our yard. We’d like to remove more turf next year. Thank you, Resource Central.
