Another way to reduce the holiday lighting bill is to use aRead more

Yard of the Month

Two live oaks are the main anchors and Japanese maples offer their brilliantly colored leaves. The bed outlined in fieldstone and large rocks accent the setting. There are colorful bedding plants throughout, withRead more
