Sharon Dewey of Turf-rific Lawn Consulting and Maintenance

I bring 30 years of experience in the landscaping business to homeowners and professional landscapers in the Phoenix area. My goal is to help educate homeowners and professionals, and to beautify our community one lawn at a time. I put great emphasis on customer service and education, and I want to help people understand the basics of good lawn and water management. The information I provide is based on xeriscape principles and research specific to the low desert.
