Thank you for the impressive articles. You have saved my sanity in many ways. My plants have never looked better, and I am finally enjoying my yard
...Scott McDonald, Texas

I just want to say thank you for all the great advice.  Before, I was clueless about growing plants.  My yard has been completely transformed in just a few short months into a healthy thriving habitat.  All my neighbors have noticed and I constantly get compliments on the yard.  Landscaping is a whole lot more fun when you know what you are doing.  Thanks again
...Jack Ford, FL
