Plant now for a beautiful garden next year

By Melinda Myers

Don’t let the summer heat keep you indoors. Now is a great time to dress up those garden beds in need of a facelift.

Always start by calling 811 and they’ll contact all the appropriate companies who will mark the location of their underground utilities in your work area.
