Our front yard needed to have a makeover and so we decided to start from scratch. We purchased some bricks and made a border where we would plant different varieties of flowers, scrubs, etc. I then researched a lot on perennials and decided this is what we wanted to plant, so that they would grow every year rather than replacing them with new plants each year. We made a list of the plants that we wanted to get and went to Mabou Gardens. When we arrived we started looking for the perennials and shrubs that we wanted. Some were easy to find but for the others we had help from a store associate. They even gave us some advice where we should plant and how far apart they would need to be to ensure that they didn't get overcrowded and then they wouldn't grow or come back year after year. Mabou Gardens had everything we needed from the materials to the plants & shrubs and more importantly the expert advice. We started our garden early Saturday morning and by late Saturday night we had the majority of our planting completed and finished up on Sunday. We were very impressed with what we had accomplished and had never regretted the plants and shrubs that we got and they all took and for many years they have been blooming and growing. If you want to start a project that requires expertise do not hesitate to go to Mabou Gardens where they will be able to help you decide on what you would like to plant and then tell you what you will need to complete the job.
