Podcast #154 – Sustainable Landscaping

We’ve belonged to Longleaf Breeze for five years and called it home for almost three.

With the completion of the lodge, however, we enter a new phase of welcoming guests, and we want them to like not only what they taste but what they see as well.  Amanda knows that whatever we do needs to be both low cost and low maintenance. So she’s signed up for a series of courses that we hope will equip her to become her own landscape designer.
