Their Story

I noticed my water bill was high, so I went online and saw the contest.

I love the size of my front patio without the grass and all of the overgrown vegetation, and the seating areas around the fountain are wonderful for a quick break with a glass of wine.

I also was able to get rid of my gardener, and I am enjoying doing the upkeep myself now. So I was able to reduce my water bill and my monthly landscape maintenance bill.

I have a lot of neighbors walk by every day and they now stop and enjoy the yard and the kids like to just stop and watch the birds come by and take a bath. The color from the plants and the tile floor is amazing and I do enjoy driving up at night and see the final product. I am very happy and would love to have my backyard done as well so I could enjoy that as much as I do the front yard. I am very happy with the overall project. Thanks to the LB Water department and H&H and Emerald Crest for a job well done.
