FINE GARDENERS Owner Paul Marini says; “My crew can rake in approximately the same amount of time it takes leaf blowers. We work with nature, not against it. It’s crazy to blow all that natural, nutritious mulch out of every flower bed.” Paul teaches his workers, “Your hands are your best tools.” Paul will rake if asked, and, uses electric and gas-powered blowers occasionally.
