It will come as no surprise to readers of this blog that I love spring. To me spring means new opportunities to enjoy the green of New England and at least in my mind the changing seasons in this region is one of the main reasons to live here, of course the culture and people rank pretty high as well. But it is the green bursting out into view after almost six month of absence that really gets me excited.
I recommend everyone come up with a To-Do list for spring cleanup and repair, generally a couple of weekends with the whole family putting in some time should take care of most projects and put you in a good place to welcome spring. Among the tasks many of us will need to do is to repair concrete and asphalt, including concrete pavers that got damaged during the winter.
The good people at NorthNewJersey.com recently published a good how-to article entitled What has winter done to your cement, asphalt and pavers? check it out for more information.
When it comes to holding fundraisers my hat goes off to parents and teachers who constantly amaze me with their ingenuity and new ideas to keep schools open and educating our children. Recently I have seen a spate of articles detailing how many districts are offering to have your name or business engraved into a paver and then the paver will be used to repair a surface in distress. Using this thinking whole walls and parking lots could be built upon small donations. May somewhere you can get your name engraved and placed at the bottom of a pool or fountain, now that is a cool thought.
If you have a paver idea to help raise funds for a worthy cause stop by our office and talk with Matt or Pete to find out the details of what is available in style and price.
