Sand Fence after Sandy?


It has been a while since Sandy made a visit to the Outer Banks, but the beach is still showing signs of damage and debris. Sand fence, or lack of, seems to be one of the first things you notice as you come over the dunes. We receive a lot of North East wind during the winter months. A perfect time for sand fence to build up the dunes. When preparing to re-install your sand fence, keep in mind that areas adjacent to the ocean and sound, fall under the jurisdiction of the Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA).  Its not just sticking two by fours in the ground and leaning up some fencing. Placement,  spacing,  and angle are just a few details regulated by CAMA guidelines. Sand fence can be an excellent way to help protect your home on the Outer Banks if installed properly. Make sure to install your fencing correctly or consider hiring a professional. Green Incorporated has been installing sand fence as a part of our landscaping services on the Outer Banks for over 18 years. We would be happy to help with your next fencing project.

Fall Lawn Care Tip #2

Fertilizing our lawns in Fall before the ground gets too cool is important in maintaining a healthy lawn.  Fertilizing encourages strong root development allowing grass to survive winter and get a better start for spring.

Fall maintenance also provides a balance of nutrients that help grass prepare for winter weather.  It also helps increase resistance to disease and insects.

Fall Lawn Care Tip #1

Lawn Care Tips
Fall lawn care  includes ensuring that lawns receive the right amount of water to carry them through the winter.

Just because the temperatures outside are no longer consistently high, we can’t totally forget about watering in Fall. While we won’t need to water nearly as much as in summer, but during hot, dry spells in Fall, remembering to provide sufficient water will help every lawn in the dormant Winter months.
