Day one completed! Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping are doing a wonderful job! I have been saving for this project for a long time and they are bringing my vision into reality! My dream patio, part of phase 1: Zehr’s Flowers and Landscaping outdid themselves!

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
