Unscheduled Collapse Of Sanborn’s Oldest Building Heralds New Era

Good morning, Sanbornians! And what an eventful morning it’s been!

In the wee hours of the morning, the old Sanborn historical courthouse suddenly collapsed in on itself in a spectacular crash, leaving much of the neighborhoods surrounding it choking in a cloud of asbestos and leaded paint particles. We have not gotten a full count of the casualties of the event, but we’re happy to report that only a single tour group was scheduled to be allowed in during the time to experience one of Sanborn’s most exciting haunted house tours.

The old courthouse, a fixture of the Sanborn landscape for nearly 200 years, had seen a number of uses over the years. First built by the Spanish as a slave auctioneering house, the building has been home to a number of (in)famous local notables. This list includes the administrative center for Sanborn Chemical Manufacturers, who were the party deemed primarily responsible for the Sanborn Creek fire incident of 1913, where the creek was accidentally set on fire by sparks let off by stones some local boys were throwing, leading to the deaths of some 24 people.

In recent years, the old courthouse was used primarily as a museum to Old Sanborn, detailing the long and sordid history of our fair county. It had exhibits dedicated to describing many of the costly and destructive battles and massacres perpetrated here by the native Americans against each other, the Spanish against the natives, and finally the American government against the natives and the Spanish. It even had a whole wing dedicated to the disappearances of the hikers in the woods and hills around Sanborn in recent years, though those were being contested in court by the families.

Upon initial inspection, it was initially thought that there was some sort of arson or purposeful human destruction of the building suspected, as a group of unidentified bodies wearing strange robes was found in a circle in the basement of the building. However, in an interview conducted this morning, Caretaker Jenkins, the crotchety groundskeeper of the courthouse, alleges that he has been warning the local government of a massive termite infestation for years now.

Jenkins, swaying warily in his seat across from me and staring with sunken, unblinking eyes that seemed to glint with the light a faraway candle at all times, appeared convinced that the local government thought he was crazy and was unwilling to undergo even a cursory inspection of the grounds, which he asserts is coated with dead termites and every other kind of pest imaginable. Though he ended the interview with a minutes-long string of uninterrupted laughter and repeated warnings that we have no idea what we’ve unleashed by letting the building go to ruin, I was able to glean that he was recently in contact with a local business that had moved in to the area to get the building checked out: Natural Science Exterminating.

Natural Science Exterminators is a Garden Grove-based company that’s recently taken the opportunity to expand out into our neck of the woods, undoubtedly after hearing about our record-breaking pest populations recently reported in our humble gazette. Family owned and operated for more than 25 years, the pest control company combines modern science with age-old pest prevention techniques that can both destroy current infestations and stop new ones from setting up shop.

Customers of the company note the professionalism and thoroughness of their technicians in many of the glowing online testimonials:

If you believe your house might be on the precipice of collapse like the old Sanborn courthouse, or even if you’re just worried there might be a bug or two crawling around your walls, give Natural Science a call. It’ll give you peace of mind, and your neighbors will thank you for not coating their lungs with insulation material after the crash.

A Guide to Kitchen Remodeling

The kitchen is the core of the home, where people gather for meals, homework, games, and conversations. A contractor can help a homeowner guide throughout the process, whether it’s a complete overhaul or a simple facelift. 

A kitchen remodel is an investment that offers a great return. Almost every homeowner plans to perform house remodeling at least once in their life. However, it can be a time-consuming and frustrating process that disrupts the family’s life for weeks or months. Hiring the best contractor can ease the stress by keeping the project on time and to avoid expenses from spiraling out of control. 

Defining the Must-Haves

Deciding what the homeowner wants is the initial step when remodeling the kitchen. It will help narrow down the choices and set a budget. It can feel like the choices for their kitchen are limitless. However, homeowners must choose what’s essential to them. Focus on your priorities first, so that you know which compromises to make if things do not go according to plan.

Green Leafed Plants On Kitchen Island

Setting the Budget

According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost of remodeling a kitchen that is “200 feet or more and typically runs between $30,000 and $60,000. Upscale remodels can reach from $75,000 to $100,000 and beyond.”

How can homeowners determine a realistic budget for their kitchen remodeling project? A good rule is to spend at least five to fifteen percent of their home’s total value. For instance, if a homeowner’s house is valued at $300,000, a good kitchen remodeling budget would be ten percent of that overall value, hence at least $30,000. 

Hiring the Professionals

Dismissing the advantages of hiring a kitchen contractor is one of the most common mistakes homeowners make in their kitchen remodel projects. These professionals help them keep on track, on the job, and budget. 

A kitchen contractor is the point person for the kitchen renovation. They provide and source all the materials, organize the timeline, and employ the subcontractors who will be working on the project. In short, they are what make the remodeling project run flawlessly and complete on time. 

Hiring a contractor is indeed an investment. However, it is worth contacting a professional, rather than attempting to DIY.

Timeline 

Timelines depend on your specific needs. The information in this article should be taken as a guideline; for a complete assessment that is specifically tailored to your situation, consult with Inspired Remodels.

Read Darya W.‘s review of Inspired Remodels on Yelp

For a moderate-sized kitchen, renovations may take six to eight weeks. Renovation projects that involve structural changes, such as wall removals and reconfiguration of the floor plan, may take a bit longer. A reasonable timeline might be ten to twelve weeks. 

Overall, renovating one’s kitchen can be a lengthy process, but it is worth it in the end. A custom kitchen renovation can offer homeowners more fulfillment and contentment than anything else. Upgrading your home can be a great investment for any homeowner. In the long term, most kitchen renovations pay for themselves or come close to it through market appreciation, increasing the market value if you do choose to one day sell your home.

Effective and Eco-Friendly Termite Extermination Methods

Termites are among the pests that frighten homeowners the most, causing billions of dollars in damage every year in America. They often feed on wood, causing damage to insulation, paper, books, and even filtration systems and swimming pool liners. 

Homeowners can find many noticeable signs that indicate a termite infestation. Muddy patches on wooden surfaces, termite tubes, sawdust, and termite wings are common signs.

Homeowners suffering from this problem should ensure they act fast but with the service of the right experts. Understanding what to do to get rid of such pests and safeguard the home from them in the future is crucial. 

Chemical pesticides are typically the first thing to come to mind for most homeowners. However, they are also other options for termite extermination.

Tent Fumigation 

Termite fumigation is a common method when it comes to termite extermination. But what does this entail? 

Fumigation is an effective method for getting rid of termite infestations within the home. It enables pesticides to penetrate the wood and kill termites in hard-to-reach areas, rather than having to identify every termite infestation area. Tent fumigation is safe when proper procedures are followed.

Fumigation is one of the ways in which Garden Grove termites are exterminated. The exterminating cost differs based on the method employed, the access, and the structure area. The process involves sealing the home and sending gas into the closed space. It is kept there to permeate into the wood and other structures for at least two to three days. 

After the home is opened, the air is assessed to ensure it to be toxin-free before everyone is to be allowed to enter the termite-free area.

Natural Ways to Eliminate Termites

Here are some of the safest and most eco-friendly ways to exterminate termites completely. 

Natural oils are helpful in repelling termites as a pesticide. Not all are aware of this, but neem oil’s anti-microbial properties make an excellent tool for termite extermination. Further, orange oil has d-limonene, a compound that destroys termites. 

Who would’ve thought that aloe vera gel can also be used for preventing termites? One can remove the gel from the aloe vera plant and spread it across the area. The gel establishes a barrier in which the pests are not able to penetrate. 

Salt is also a natural remedy, which can be easily found in any American kitchen. Sprinkling salt over the damaged furniture is useful in driving away termites. Homeowners can fill a syringe with a mixture of water and salt and inject it into the termites’ nesting holes.

Nonetheless, these eco-friendly termite extermination methods only work if the property damage is not extensive. 

Read Brenda I.‘s review of Natural Science Exterminating on Yelp

Overall, understanding how to treat termites properly is the initial step in defeating and stopping them. Nonetheless, it is always best to call a pest control specialist to help resolve the termite infestations and damages, especially given the amount of damage a termite infestation can cause to a person’s home. Proper care and treatment are required to avoid further damage to one’s property and budget.

Local Entrepreneur And Socialite Divorce Amidst Corporate Bankruptcy

Jennifer Hall was thinking about Tyler Hall again. Tyler was a violent brute, unbeknownst to those who worshipped him as a successful entrepreneur.

Jennifer walked over to her window and reflected on her picturesque surroundings. She had always loved Sanborn County. It was a place that inspired her, yet it brought out her depression because she had moved so far away from her friends and family. Marrying Tyler a decade ago seemed like such a good idea, but little did she know that their marriage would leave her feeling alone and isolated.

Then, she saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the tall, looming figure of Tyler. He had just pulled into the driveway and began to walk inside.

Jennifer gulped. She could always tell by his stride if he was in a bad mood coming home from work. He was a controlling, mean alcoholic. His friends saw him as a narcissistic control freak. Once, he even made his lead engineer have a mental breakdown at the office because he had worked the team to the bone to meet an insane product launch deadline.

The rain came pouring down. Jennifer was stressed. As he stepped inside and slammed the front door behind him, Jennifer felt her back freeze.

“Look Jennifer,” growled Tyler, with an arrogant glare. “It’s not that I don’t love you, but I want you to leave town for the weekend. I’m sick and tired of never being alone.”

Jennifer looked at him, shocked. “You want me to leave because you can’t stand me? Fine! You know what? Let me leave you for good! I want a divorce.”

Tyler was startled. His mind started to race. His company had not been performing well. He and Jennifer hadn’t signed a prenuptial agreement. They had been to marriage counseling for his alcoholism and violent behavior, but nothing had improved.

He took a deep breath. “Jennifer, I-.” Before he could say another word, she screamed back at him: “Tyler, I want a divorce! I hate you! I want a divorce NOW. We are ending this marriage and I am taking half of your money!”

“I’m afraid I declared my company bankrupt today,” explained Tyler.

“No!” objected Jennifer. “You liar! Do you think I’m stupid?!”

“I do not!” retorted Tyler. “If you want a divorce—fine. But there’s no point in hiring a lawyer and taking me to court, Jennifer. My company is dying and you aren’t going to walk away with anything from the business. That’s why I thought we needed to take a break. I needed time and space to process…how…stressful it’s been. Everything has gotten worse in the last year.”

What will happen next to Tyler and Jennifer Hall? We will be following this story closely and reporting back. For now, here is a bit of divorce advice.

For those who are in a financially strained, high-conflict marriage, we recommend avoiding litigation altogether. Couples who already have severe unresolved issues during the marriage will only find themselves more at odds with one another in court. Furthermore, traditional divorce can cost tends of thousands of dollars in legal fees per person.

Instead, consider mediation, a process facilitated by a neutral third party who will objectively act in the best interests of both parties to reach mutual terms of separation.

It’s Time to Build Your Dream Business and WorkSpace

Some of the greatest businesses were founded during tough times. With the current state of the world, many of us have lost jobs but also gained new insight, turning our creative hobbies or ideas into startups.

Starting a new business and scaling it over time can be really tough. We’re sharing our take on building your dream business and office.

Business Growth

Identify Your Niche

Who are the people you are meant to serve? This isn’t just a question you should ask yourself when you do marketing; it should be one of the first questions you ask yourself when starting a business. Identify your ideal customer by using a combination of psychographic and demographic data, and create personas to inform your decisions on how you will market and sell your products or services to them.

Build A Sales Funnel

Making a sales funnel for your business is very important, as these funnels can automate your business over time. Sales funnels help your business grow faster by establishing processes that will streamline operations. The process of making a sales funnel might be tiring, but it is completely worth the time and effort.

Manage Your Transactions Effectively

Choosing a suitable customer management system is in the best interest of your business. Tracking individual transactions manually can be almost impossible and time-consuming as your business grows. You can use cloud-based software to handle accounting and repetitive tasks. You can then allocate the saved time to other productive tasks.

Study Your Competitors

You should always study your competitors when considering making big business decisions. Competitor research can provide you with valuable insights into how your competitor doing well and what you can do better. These strategies can be leveraged to grow your business. This will give you valuable insight so that you can formulate your differentiation, value proposition, and competitive advantage.

Office Design

For those who have completed the above, started their business, and been well underway towards growing and scaling their team and operations, it may be time for you to think about creating a space for those big crazy dreams to come to reality!

According to Business Wire, Technavio Research reports that the increase in startup companies being founded is the driving force behind the increased demand for office furniture in the United States.

Smart Office Desks

Investing in smart office desks can help you maximize the available space in your workspace. Ergonomic desks suited to the custom needs of your workers is one of the best investments that you can make for better productivity of your employees.

Ergonomic Office Chairs

Choose the best quality ergonomic office chairs to provide your employees with much-needed comfort when working. When investing in office chairs, keep in mind that most of your employees will be sitting in them for the most part of their day; ask for their input as to what would be most comfortable to them.

Use Vertical Space

You can install shelving to make the most out of the vertical space available in your office. Utilizing vertical space as storage space prevents clutter from gathering in the office. You can buy desks and add shelves to the upper portion. Wall-mounted shelves are also a great option.

If you are an Orange County entrepreneur or small business owner ready to take your business and office space to the next level, give Creative Office Design a call to check out their showroom today!

Dog And Cat People: Personality And Characteristics

When it comes to owning cats and dogs, pet owners have several differences and similarities which are peculiar to them and are mostly due to the temperament of each animal type. In this article, we will look at the personality traits and characteristics of the owners of the two species: what makes them different and what they share in common.

Differences Between Dog Owners And Cat Owners 

Dogs are very active and far more sociable than cats. This tends to be reflected in their owners. Dog owners tend to socialize more than cat owners. Dog owners tend to be more friendly and extroverted than cat owners, who are usually people who live and spend time alone. Also, people who keep dogs as pets tend to be more confident and assertive compared to owners of cats. A research study found that cat owners are a third more likely to live alone and twice as likely to live in an apartment compared to dog owners. 

Cat owners tend to be more neurotic than dog lovers. Cat lovers tend to be more prone to anxiety and neurotic disorders compared to dog owners. Unlike dogs that sit with their owners, providing affection for just being there, cats, on the other hand, are far less likely to reassure their owners through difficult and emotional times.

Cat owners tend to be reclused, preferring their own whims rather than following the rules, which can be attributed to their colder mannerisms and preference for independence. Cats generally like to do as they please. Dog owners are more likely to obey their owners, symbolizing their loyalty.

Cat people are more sensitive than dog people. And sensitivity is not always a bad thing! According to a research study conducted at Carroll University, dog owners show fewer signs of sensitivity compared to cat owners.

Dog owners tend to tolerate cats while cat owners strongly dislike dogs. Studies also reveal that people who own dogs tend not to have problems with adding a cat to their life, but cat owners are often not open to buying or accepting a dog as a pet. 

Similarities Between Dog Owners and Cat Owners

Research shows that those with pets have stronger heart health than those without. Pet owners are investing more and more into pet healthcare. Veterinary services such as the specialization of a cardiology consultant have become increasingly in high demand.

Dogs and cats are the two most common domesticated animals kept as pets in our world today. Both animals are affectionate in their unique ways: they show that to their owners and expect to receive that same kind of love and attention from their owners.

Dog and cat owners always like to keep their animal friends by their side to cuddle and sleep with them. They even feed their pets at the same time that they eat. These pets occupy a familial role in the lives of the owners; like children and family members, they affect the owner’s selection of apartment or home, furniture, car, and so on. In fact, a rover.com study found many pet owners preferred their fur companion to human company. 52% of cat owners preferred spending time with their cats than with people, and 42% of dog owners preferred to spend time with their dogs than people.

Are you a dog or cat person?

Protecting The Foundation Of Your Home

Termites may be less common than the average insect, but they can cause a great deal of damage compared to other pests. The kind of damage termites cause can severely threaten a home’s structural integrity. These insects are so subtle they may not even be noticed until they have gone far in chewing through wood, flooring, and walls. Often, homeowners will deal with three main types of termites, which are the subterranean, drywood, and dampwood termites. Let’s take a closer look at each of these types and the challenges they present.

Types of Termites

Subterranean Termites

These are the most common type of household termites which form large underground colonies and obtain moisture by building mud tubes while they move back and forth between a food source and the colony. They can spread in an underground tunnel, feeding on wood materials in the environment.

Drywood Termites

Unlike subterranean, Drywood termites are not that easy to detect. Their biological makeup enables them to infest homes without even touching the soil. These termites infest wood used in building homes as well as infesting wood furniture.

Dampwood Termites

Dampwood termites thrive in wood that contains high moisture. Most damp wood termites don’t need to come in contact with the soil. These termites are rarely found in the home or other man-made structure, since woods use in constructing these structures are often not high in moisture.

Termite Treatments

Termites can cause extensive home damage if left untreated. These pests bore into wood and can thrive deep in a home’s foundation slowing eating away at its core. The best bet against them is with extermination treatment, which we will look at next.

Monitoring and Bait Station

To get started, the extent of termite activity is determined by setting up monitoring stations at key points around a property. These bait stations will attract termites as the bait station contains chemicals that termites will ingest, then carry back to the colony and spread to other times. This addresses the termite problem from the source and is often the most ideal extermination treatment option when dealing with large populations.

Gas Fumigation

Another great treatment option is by gas fumigation which controls termite infestation as the treatment eliminates them in the home right back to their living area. Once inhaled, fumigants destroy a termite’s metabolism causing it to die. Grand Oaks Termite Control is a highly reputable extermination service that offers termite tenting in Arcadia, CA.

Termiticide Application

Termiticide usage may be necessary for termite infestation as it can help to eliminate the current population preventing future infestation. Termiticides are applied on the surface or injected into compromised wood or added directly into the soil around the home, which makes the environment uncomfortable for termites to thrive.

Moisture Removal

As we have learned already, termites love a high moisture environment. A simple option of exterminating termites is to ensure all plumbing leaks are fixed quickly and ensure proper drainage around the home. Wood touching the ground is at high risk, so ensure woods don’t touch the ground and use pre-treated wood which prevents termite infestation as this wood hardly decays or rot.

If you have termites and need an exterminator, give Grand Oaks Termite Control a call today.

LIVE UPDATE!!: The Fires Of Sanborn Perdition

Hello and welcome to another exciting edition of our small town rag! Today we’re going to be covering the protests happening here in our own humble county of Sanborn!

What’s that you ask? Are these protests related to the ones happening nationwide as we speak?

No, these are some home-grown good old fashioned riots! Our mayor has once again been caught with the crack pipe and ordering his police chief to beat down his dealer for raising the price of goods.

The good citizens of Sanborn immediately organized into two competing camps, one who felt this obvious abuse of power was wrong and should be punished, the other in full support of his stance on the price of crack. Both sides immediately began burning everything that could not be easily looted, including cop cars and food trucks that were not serving what the agitated crowds were in the mood for.

Sanborn’s history is filled to the brim with riots and the use of fire as a political statement, as our towns have been razed to the ground on three separate occasions. One might compare our passionate citizenry to the Alexandrians of antiquity, who were so rambunctious they were considered an essential part of the city’s military capability!

Coincidentally, all three major blazes shared a cause: rampant malfeasance in our local polity’s office. Yes, mayoral corruption is indeed as dear a tradition to our county as rampant mob violence. We love our traditions, here!

This all has come at a very opportune time for the business and real estate owners in our county, as our newest business partner is offering a little protection from the inevitability of entropic violence. No, not the mob – they long gave up on our little corner of paradise.

I am, of course, talking about insurance! Specifically, the Santa Monica State Farm agent that everyone loves, Byron Galindo. He can insure your property, business, and life in the event of sudden and total chaotic violence breaking out, which, let’s face it, is pretty inevitable at this point.

Emotions are still running pretty high despite 5 straight days of pillaging. The competing factions in the town have hunkered down in their respective zones of control, with the Justice crowd singing and dancing in the streets and the Price Gouger group milling about alternating frenetically between destruction and cleaning interspersed with 17 hour naps in their dilapidated abandoned building of choice.

Once night descends, so too do the mobs to the contested zone comprising Main Street, with its beautiful historic buildings frequently falling prey to the unchecked id of the mob. The unknowing job creators are certainly making the janitorial and real estate firms rub their palms with glee, as they’ve been eyeing the location for quite a while for redevelopment. Goodbye beautiful locally owned shops and businesses, hello luxury high rise condos!

Luckily, you may be able to save your livelihood from the liveliness of the mob. Get insurance with Byron – seriously, just get insurance. The cops here have raised up the blue-striped flag and are randomly beating people rather than save the buildings from the rampage, so you’re probably going to need it.

The Legacy Of A Great Mind

Life moves extremely fast, especially for those who achieve greatness. As a trailblazer, Steve Jobs left behind an enduring legacy in the world of business and entrepreneurship. In his lifetime, he accomplished a great deal, leading Apple on a course that made the company the first-ever trillion-dollar company. Apple still making incredible leaps to this very day, thanks to the innovations and contributions of Steve Jobs.

Semi-opened Laptop Computer Turned-on on Table

Sadly, he passed away due to pancreatic cancer in 2011. His death took place at the age of 56. Like all great planners and great minds, Jobs was prepared for what came after his time. When he passed away, he left his fortune to his wife Laurene Powell Jobs. Today, Forbes estimates his wife to be worth around $16.4 billion, making her the 56th richest person in the world. Jobs also left some of his fortunes to his daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs, who shared a different mother from his three other children.

While not everyone might be the founder of such a fascinating company while leading such a complicated personal life, it is always important to be prepared—to arrange for who will see and receive what after you leave this world. When it comes to long-term planning of estate, wills, and trusts, it is best to get your affairs in order before it is too late.

Start by making sure that you establish a will. It is very important to have this document arranged and finalized before you proceed with all else.

Focus on building a succession plan. When you are no longer here, it is important that you leave the right people in charge of your estate. This means establishing a power of attorney by appointing the person that you believe will be the wisest and most responsible when making key decisions with major control over what you have left behind. 

Also, be sure to invest in the right kind of insurance both for your estate and for yourself. Life insurance and insurance for your business would be a wise investment.

Consider investing in a charitable trust, too. This can be an excellent way to make sure that your money can be used fairly and wisely, without worrying about it falling into the wrong hands. 

Take the time to organize all records on property ownership, business dealings, and financial transactions. The easier these are to find, the easier it is to ensure that everything will go as planned. 

In summary, ensure that you start with a will and work forward from there. Organize all important documents to make sure that everything planned will be carried out as intended. Doing this will provide you with peace of mind; you will pass on with the knowledge that every dollar shall be allocated according to your wishes.

That said, this article should not be taken as legal advice. We highly recommend consulting with a firm like Burris Law; their team of award-winning lawyers specializes in wills, trusts, and estate planning.

Beautifying the Sanborn Landscape!

Good morning, Sanbornians! Your ever-faithful reporter is BACK for another addition of this top selling county rag!

Today, we’re going to be talking about how to make Sanborn a little more beautiful, as many in our county are tired of what’s quickly becoming known as our ‘opioid crisis chic’ county aesthetic. Yes, rampant globalization has had its effects on the citizenry here and effectively destroyed most of our productive capacity, turning a once prosperous part of the country into a de facto shantytown, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some pride in our appearance!

To these ends, a new company has decided to take our invitation (and substantial tax incentive) and set up shop in our humble little hamlet. That company is the Mission Hills-based Torrey Pines Landscaping Company, one of southern California’s premier landscape design and construction firms!

Just take a look at the Google review from Julie and Bob Engler, who utilized Torrey Pines for their landscaping projects in their La Jolla home:

Torrey Pines is the 4th company , starting over 10 years ago, we have had for landscapers.  We had two mow & blow companies, and one other professional company but weren’t happy.  TP fantastic.  Our site supervisor is a true horticulture expert, the employees have an educational 1/2 day every other week, we NEVER have to worry about anything and our 1 acre+ of landscaping is a joy and pleasure.  They just did a major needed driveway and retaining wall replacement; they are excellent hardscape contractors as well.  They asked to copy and paste the note I sent them, but it wasn’t sufficient to communicate the quality of their work. 

Hi Torrey Pines guys,

                Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our wall, driveway, and landscape.  The replacement landscape is growing in beautifully.  We want to tell you how much we are enjoying how wonderful and professional it all looks.  Special thanks to Mark who suggested we get a bid and consider the project.  Please pass on our thanks to the crew who did such a wonderful job, especially the incredible brick work; a work of art.

Thank you,

Julie and Bob

If that doesn’t get you excited for a new exterior for your home, I don’t know what will! And to the 35% of Sanbornians who have been made homeless due to successive economic crises caused by repressive governmental policies and destructive trade agreements over the last 30 years, think of all of the gorgeous yards you get to squat in for the foreseeable future!

Many have been both surprised and frightened at the pace of rewilding of Sanborn since these mass evictions as well – the woods seem to overtake entire neighborhoods almost overnight. The more brave Sanbornians who still emerge from their homes at night have also noted that they can almost hear the plants growing, the sound of crackling wood and rustling vegetation growing so loud that they are overcome with a sense of overwhelming dread. To help fight back against the revenge of the forest, new landscapers are the perfect warriors!

If you’re interested in making your neighborhood just a little bit brighter and more beautiful and fighting back against the encroachment of the wood, give Torrey Pines a call. They may be your last chance!
