Long Beach

Their Story

We entered the contest because we 1) wanted to save water, 2) needed a new sprinkler system to help achieve that, and 3) we're not really very good with plants.

We really like the lavender, white roses, tress, boulders, and absolutely LOVE the brick work-really makes the front look polished and sharp.

Our neighbors have called to say they like it very much; the neighbors across the street are happy to have the pretty new landscape to look at. Down the street neighbors, who had also entered the contest, came down to look around and congratulate us. We have had lots of great comments.
