My Water Results need help

Received my water results from our local water test lab. University of Wisconsin
Wisconsin well water Has high hardness.

Can you guys help me consider the steps forward to use the well water. Are there a certain group of plants and fish I should use? Will I have to adjust the levels with RO water or do you have any other suggestions?
Any help is appreciated for a beginner...
Thanks in advance.
