They are professional and share the same values as I do when it comes to landscaping.

I’ve liked the irrigation and floriculture aspects the most so far.

What is the most valuable lesson you have learned so far this summer?

How to manage a property and decide how to play to each worker’s strength.

Teleportation so I don’t have to drive anymore.
