Thank You Lawns Ltd. for Donating Our Landscaping Makeover

Friends for Life New Landscaping plans

Inez Russell with Lisa Torgersen and Josh Wible going over landscape designs

Local landscaping company, Lawns Ltd. chose us as their “Give Back to the Community” project this year. Not only did they donate a low maintenance design, they are donating all the bells and whistles. We will have a state of the art irrigation system, beautiful and colorful plants and FREE maintenance.  It is so much fun to watch the progress, and how amazing to think that all of this is FREE!
