Advice from the Owner
We rented a sod cutter and removed the sod ourselves so we could use our Resource Central credit toward plants. The cardboard sheet mulching worked great - we used landscape staples to hold it in place. We recommend waiting to put the cardboard down until you have your landscaping substrate ready to put down - it curled and lifted with all the rain we got this year. Also, connect with your local native plant groups! In addition to our Garden In A Box plants, we were also able to pick up some great plants from a native plant swap in our area. Can't wait to see it grown in!Back to Inspiration Hub
