If you’ve ever walked by or driven by a yard that looks amazing, vibrant and full of thriving plants, you may have wondered what it takes to get it that way. Many homeowners have the gardening knowhow and valuable time to spend on their landscaping - and that’s one reason why there are so many beautiful yards and gardens in the Portland area!
