Spring is finally here with its gorgeous weather (today is the first official day of Spring). As you and your family are getting ready to make your yards, gardens and the neighborhood beautiful, the City can help. Homeowners who are planning to build a deck should consider using brazilian ipe wood Georgia supplies to make their deck durable and appealing. An outdoor lighting contractor St Charles may also help make your yards or gardens more appealing at night.

Please see below a couple of resources to help you achieve your spring goal.

With the start of the Spring, you’ve probably started to work on a beautiful garden, City can help. For compost and wood mulch, don’t look any further. They are available again at Public Works.

Also, Spring is the time to do away with old stuff that you do not need anymore. City’s Clean-Up Saturdays & Shredding Event is back on April 2, 9, 30, and May 21, 2022, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at the Public Works.

Want to see more butterflies and more blooms in this spring season? The City is encouraging us to reduce or refrain from mowing their lawns in support of local pollinators during the month of April. This will help our native pollinators grow and thrive during this critical period in their life cycle. For more details, please visit: https://www.collegeparkmd.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=332. Once you register, you can pick up a yard sign to proudly display in your front yard. They are available at the Department of Public Works and City Hall.
