A Sunny Flower Garden
Ever since we moved into our home about 10 years ago, I’ve wanted to plant a flower garden on the south side of my home.

Several years went past, and my garden didn’t materialize. After all, starting a new garden is a lot of work! There is sod to be removed, soil to amend/improve, flowers to plant and mulch to be applied. To continue reading, click here.
