We’ve all heard that April showers brings May flowers, but for some of us, April’s heavy rainfall can wreak havoc on a landscape design.
If you live on a hilly terrain or have property that slopes you may see that a sudden deluge may leave your yard with a mudslide straight through your flower bed or garden. That’s because water will always take the path of least resistance, with zero regard for a carefully planned garden or landscape design. Over time, the water will erode the landscape and create an unsightly rut.

Grills with side burners, concrete and stone counter tops, and sinks and refrigerators, have allowed hosts to spend more time with their guests and have stopped the exhausting “BBQ food relay”.
