  • Ga Clipping.JPG ‘Low maintenance’ doesn’t mean ‘no maintenance’

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
