The Honey Bees really could use your help. Since the ‘90’s, Honey Bee colonies have been disappearing at an alarming rate from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Thirty Five states (and many countries abroad) have reported losing from 30% to over half of their bee colonies. So what’s the big deal (you might ask)? Well, just try to imagine life without the Honey Bee – it would be pretty bleak!
After a wet New Jersey spring, it may be time to check on your yard drainage system for issues that need to be addressed. Ensuring a problem-free drainage system will help deter flooding and water intrusion that can damage your home. Heavy rains can cause damage to homes due to failing gutters and surface flooding from uncontrolled sheet flow. The best approach to keep water away from your home is having a well thought out and executed Water Management Strategy (WMS). Read more
When a Manasquan homeowner received notice from the town of stream corridor issues on the his property, he didn’t know where to turn or how to properly proceed. The homeowner wanted to resolve the situation effectively, agreeably and as affordably as possible. He knew that dealing with attorneys, engineers and municipal officials on sensitive environmental issues was not his expertise. He also knew that he needed to resolve the situation with the Borough of Manasquan or the issue would be handed over to the state Department of Environmental Protection.
Thankfully, he called GreenWorks.
We went to work immediately and coordinated with officials in Manasquan. The restoration work began and due to our highly-trained, productive team of professionals, the final price was 50% less than what was initially anticipated.
Additionally, the Borough of Manasquan was happy with the solution and the timeline met by GreenWorks, which was good news for the homeowner, for us and for local officials.
“GreenWorks was very cooperative and easy to work with,” said Patrick Callahan, heading of Zoning and Code Enforcement for the Borough of Manasquan. Callahan went on to say that working with GreenWorks was a “good experience” and the company did a good job presenting all the technical information and resolving the issue in a timely manner.
This example highlights an important issue that we encounter all the time: due diligence. A call to GreenWorks for an appropriate due diligence before the property purchase would’ve revealed the issues that were eventually required to be corrected.
When similar issues are revealed before purchasing a property, a due diligence investigation will identify them so the purchaser can make a fully informed decision.
Leaves are falling, days are getting shorter and nights are getting cooler.
Welcome to autumn, one of our favorite times of the year!
Now, about that “backyard.”
Perhaps your backyard wasn’t all you hoped it would be over the summer. Those dreams of entertaining family and friends around a fire pit? Never happened. Converting that lawn to a “natural lawn”? Great idea. The cool embrace of the perfect pool on a hot summer day? Maybe next year.
Aha! Next year!
The time to plan for next year is now. Let’s face it, time passes faster than most of us would like. Before we know it, the holidays will be a memory and we’ll be thinking about Memorial Day cookouts. Let’s get the backyard ready for those cookouts and summer 2011 now.
A backyard upgrade or complete transformation doesn’t happen overnight. It’s important to have the time to do the proper planning and work that’s needed for a high-quality job that will provide decades of enjoyment. In fact, planning now can actually save you money in the long run by taking advantage of stock over-runs, end of year specials and advanced planning.
It’s time now to think about how you want to spend those summer afternoons next year. If you finally want to get more out of your backyard – more enjoyment, more value, more relaxation – then it’s time now to contact GreenWorks. Give Victor a call now at 732-223-2073.
This time next year, you’ll be glad you did.
