It’s Groundhog Day…almost!


With Punxsutawney Phil (and scores of other furry little rodents) about to make his annual appearance at the Groundhog Day celebrations in Punxsutawney, PA, the question on people’s minds is, how much longer is this winter going to last? If you are into the folklore of the groundhog predictive abilities, you will have to wait until tomorrow to find out. If you just want to know the best material to use for your back yard landscaping regardless of how long winter lasts keep reading.

 Most experts agree that travertine pavers are an ideal material for outdoor landscaping.

And finally, for any lovers of Bill Murray and classic cinema, you are most certainly aware of the 1993 gem, Groundhog Day. How this was snubbed on Oscar night, I will never understand.
