things here first is living a better
life with my family and second making
tomorrow better than today that’s in the
closing tag line for the show right and
there’s a reason for that so because of
my why I want to help you and your
family live a better life as well that’s
right this podcast while we talk mostly
about landscapes and plants and yard
work and stuff like that this really
this podcast is about life it’s
improving how you live that’s what we’re
really talking about here
the reason we’re looking to save time
and our landscapes is so we can do other
things and live with passion so
we can make tomorrow better than today I
want you to be able to spend more time
with your family and the people that you
love and doing the things that are more
important than mowing the lawn your life
is not for your yard your yard is for
your life and that’s why we’re
rebranding to easy living yards let’s
