Weed It & Reap: Gary Reddish

Gary Reddish has spent the past several years crafting a 2,000 sq. ft. oasis in the backyard of his East Toledo home. Reddish and his son, Max, installed pavers and constructed a sturdy trellis for a large trumpet vine to shade their yard, patio, small pond, and hot tub.
