Turf Installation

Good afternoon, Sanbornians! I’m quite happy to report that the dust is finally settling from the crises over the previous few months, and an eerie calm has settled over our fair county.

With the termite menace receding, the citizens of our great county are returning to their houses to survey the damage done and decide how to move forward. The summer months are fast approaching, and many of us are wondering what we can do to prepare our properties to get the most out of this short window of peace and prosperity!

Unfortunately, with the recent chaos, many of us have been forced to neglect our landscaping, and with the unusual rate of growth for much of the plant life in our little piece of California, many are looking at their overgrown lawns with despair. Previously perfectly kept yards are looking like the properties have been abandoned for years and nature has reclaimed them as part of her domain.

After years of nearly daily upkeep for their lawns, many Sanbornians I have talked to on the matter feel that this is the last straw. The struggle between man and grass is just too much for them to continue any longer, and it is time to start looking at alternatives.

One must be careful about which alternative to choose for their natural turf lawns in Sanborn, however. Merely tearing out the grass to replace it with clovers or stones is not enough; somehow, no matter how much soil you remove, native Sanborn flora always finds a way to return, often destroying the new landscaping work you have installed in the process.

No, Sanbornians require a more permanent solution, and that means removing the nature and replacing it with the synthetic. Luckily, Sanborn is home to a field office of NoMow Turf, a city partner known for their high quality fake grass installations in Orange County.

Synthetic turf installation involves destroying the top layers of soil to install a base of stone and sand, meaning any natural plant life is going to have an extremely tough time reclaiming the yard space. With proper drainage control, any remaining soil is deprived almost completely of water, so any plants that manage to get a foothold are incapable of surviving for long.

Utilizing artificial turf gives you all the benefits of a well maintained lawn without the constant battle to either keep it alive or getting a little too lively and takin over the space. Fake grass is a one-and-done deal, meaning you only need to worry about a proper installation.

While it is possible to perform the installation yourself, if you truly want to be certain your yard will remain free of the destructive native flora, it’s always recommended you get the work done by a professional in the field. NoMow Turf have been in the game for decades, and the hundreds of properties they have worked on can attest to their skill and professionalism.

If you’re interested in a permanent solution to the struggles you face with natural turf, give NoMow Turf a call. They will ensure your yard remains perfect without a single bead of sweat required for years to come.

The Benefits and Responsibilities of Being a Dog Owner

Many of us know of dogs as the best friends of human beings. This may be the main reason why most Americans prefer owning a pet. Studies reveal that almost 52% of pet owners in the United States enjoy keeping them for companionship in life and 40% believe that the presence of a dog at home helps them to improve their mental health. 

Studies from medical health experts in the United States reveal that almost half of Americans experience stress and loneliness in their routine life. However, pets help to fulfill their needs in life. These loyal and loving companions can make people feel more at ease with enhanced emotional stability in life. But the dog owners also need to understand their responsibilities towards their pet. These creatures must be vaccinated, nourished, and groomed from time to time. The dog owners may also need to take them for vet diagnostics or a routine health check-up. Cardiac veterinarians are specialists who receive referrals from veterinarians for services like echocardiograms.

Furthermore, those who wish to own a pet in the future might be a little curious to know the benefits of having a dog at home. There are several interesting benefits of being a dog owner.

Improved heart health

Dogs can fill your heart with loads of love and happiness. They can also help to make your heart stronger. These canine companions can help the human body lower blood pressure, decrease triglyceride levels, reduce cholesterol levels, and improve heart health. Moreover, dog owners who have experienced heart attacks in the past are more likely to have a higher survival rate afterwards. 

Enhanced fitness and activities

Health experts advise people to make time for moderate exercise every week. However, dog owners are likely to hit this goal without making any additional effort. People love to go on a walk with their pets. Their routine playful activities will encourage anyone to keep moving. As a result, dog owners are likely to have fewer visits to doctors and more likely to have better fitness.

Faster weight loss

Those who are interested in dropping a few pounds of weight are advised to care for a dog at home. These hyperactive animals can help you burn all the stored fat content very fast while balancing your overall body shape. A recent study found that residents who walked with their dog were able to lose 14.4 pounds in a year. And the best part is that they consider walking a dog care responsibility.

Improved social life

An amazing benefit of becoming a dog owner is that these extroverted and outgoing animals can help you set up connections with the people around you. Usually, it is difficult to find time to meet new people in our busy lives. But when you have a pet, you find yourself out in the parks and streets for walks, making it easier to meet other dog owners. 

Now that you know of the amazing benefits of having a dog, it is time to ensure that yours lives a happy and healthy life by giving a Cardiac Veterinarian a call today.

A Growing Problem

Good afternoon and welcome back to the Sanborn County Rag! Well, what’s left of it, anyway!

Since our last update on the termite issue, things have taken a bit of a turn for the worse. We seem to have a bit of a plague on our hands, and the situation is looking a little grim!

Since the old courthouse collapsed, the termite infestations have spread in a concentric circle pattern radiating outward from the ruins. Terrified citizens have been forced to flee as their homes and businesses get gobbled up before their very eyes.

Our very own temporary office in the local YMCA was also unfortunately destroyed. Your humble narrator was barely able to come out with my laptop and some documents before the building was cordoned off by police.

Upon reaching the refugee camp near Lake Sanborn, I took it upon myself to find Groundskeeper Jenkins, whose cryptic warnings in the wake of the courthouse collapse seems all the more prescient now. I managed to find him cooling his heels near the hot dog cart, happily munching away on a corndog.

His healthy pallor returning and the faraway glint in his eyes now gone, it appears whatever hold the courthouse had on him is fading away. When asked about what he meant by his warnings from a few weeks ago, he merely shrugged and said, “I told you so.” He then invited me to sit with him and share in his meal.

To combat this newest disaster impacting Sanborn, the mayor is bringing out the big guns: he has invited one of southern California’s premier exterminators, Grand Oaks Termite Control, to join the fray. The Grand Oaks-based company has been operating for eight years, and in that time has created a loyal customer base and destroyed hundreds of infestations. Here’s just a few testimonials from their client base:

If the company accepts the mayor’s invitation, they will certainly have the job of their life ahead of them. If you believe your home is experiencing its own plague or infestation, give Grand Oaks a call – they’ve got the tools and the experience needed to eradicate your pest problem and prevent future ones from popping up.

Summer In Sanborn

Hello and welcome to the Winter edition of the Sanborn County rag! Well, it’s supposed to be winter, anyway – some real unusual weather patterns have been causing the county to be unseasonably warm after the sudden snowstorm hit us in December.

The warm weather has caused some Sanbornians to venture out and start participating in traditional summer activities, including taking a dip in Lake Sanborn and venturing out into the woods at night! Note: we do not recommend venturing out into the woods at any time, especially at night.

While some are having fun in the sun, others are stuck indoors thanks to a poorly managed yard and patio setup. They listlessly wander around their darkened homes, sunlight blocked by the tall grass and weeds that tend to grow at astounding rates during times of draught and warm weather.

So, for them, we’re going to introduce a company new to our area who is trying to help provide residents with some of the best patio ideas available on the market right now: Torrey Pines Landscaping! Yes, the world-famous landscaping company has finally opened a branch in our neck of the woods, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Just take a look at some of these testimonials and burn with jealousy that you can’t be among their clientele – not yet, anyway!

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 (Google review)

Read Gary E.‘s review of Torrey Pines Landscape Company on Yelp

“We bought a home in the Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe, and it was an ugly mess of landscaping with a design that made the front look short and covered the back golf course view.  It needed a major beautification.

We knew we needed Torrey Pines Landscaping, and their wonderful team lead by the humble Harry Thompson.  Harry has a servant’s heart plus a special talent for landscape design. 

Torrey Pines Landscaping transformed the ugly landscaping to an awarding winning design that ended up on the cover of San Diego Home/Garden. 

If you really appreciate great design, beautiful flowers and nature, and quality work, Torrey Pines Landscaping is the only choice!” (Ryan S., Yelp)

Thanks for coming to our humble county, Torrey Pines! We promise you’ll find your work cut out for you; the grass here has a mind of its own.

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?
