Advice from the Owner
Every year our grass gets less and less plush due to drought conditions and not wanting to water more. Replacing about 200 sq. ft. of garden in the front requires less water and looks so much better. We lost a few of the plants up front due to rabbits and squirrels, but overall these plants should mature into something beautiful by next year. We are putting in bulbs this fall for a pop of color and want to see what comes up next year! The hardest work is the preparation time, chopping out the grass, tilling the soil, soil replacement , as well as mulching the entire area (we bought them by the bag!) I may hire some help if I take out more soil next year!Back to Inspiration Hub
