Island Gardens

The salt air can be a challenge for home owners who want a colorful seaside garden.  Yet there are numerous blocks in town with beautiful lawns, colorful trees, and flowers. 

Green thumb owners create peer pressure within a neighborhood.  The plain stone yard with minimal landscaping previously represented the typical shore house.  On some blocks, that property now looks out of place.

Related observation:  Have you noticed how many landscape vehicles are on the island each week?  Obviously, most owners do NOT have a green thumb ;)

    Stone yards in Avalaon and Stone Harbor make me insane ! Come on people, you paid
    1 mil and up for your house. Spend some money on landscaping for gosh sakes ! It makes the community look great !

    Whew! Glad we have the preferred “lawn” (full disclosure- stones along the sides and back). I agree- the island is more attractive with grass and trees.
