    well I picked up a new customer Saturday, met his and he drove me around his yard,,,, he has numerous beds. path's, ponds and bridges, there are several bird houses LARGE... one has a Peacock in it.....

    thses ponds are full of lillies for the frogs..... he told me when in doubt the answer is NO..... there are several trppical plants, and plants that most people have never seen. it should be open to the public......
    there is NO line trimming, Jsut mowing.... well today I went and mowed it for the 1st time...and I got lost in all the jungle....and path and such.....

    There is a place here where a 80 something old guy has 15 acres of garden beds and turf. He takes care of it all by himself. It is amazing. He opens it during the tour of roses. I will take some pics next year when he opens to public again.
