Thank You Richland County!

Just thought you would want to know that our home recently won the Water Wise award in this year's Appearance Counts contest from Richland County.

Each year Richland County issues awards to attractive yards in the area and this year they added some "Green" categories.

We won for our rainwater collection and irrigation system and rain garden. If you missed those posts, you can see them at:

Our award included a nice certificate, a garden party at the county administration building, a poinsettia plant, and a $25 gift card to Woodley's Garden Center.

So thank you Richland County for recognizing our efforts and for encouraging "green". And thanks to our builder Jay Rogers, our architect Bob Bourguignon, and WP Law irrigation supplies for all your work and assistance.

Happy Holidays!
