Relocating is also part of the 3 R’s

Relocating is also part of the 3 R’s

Reduce, reuse and recycle. These are the 3 R’s for a greener and happier planet. Here is a small example:

There were 3 very large planters that were destined to be sent to the trash landfill. The owners didn’t want them anymore. They were left in our construction area of the East Pool Deck for several months. We had the idea to relocate the planters into the West Parking Lot across the South Ocean Drive. There are grass areas the lost their protective curb. The vehicular traffic is creating ponds of rain water. Besides these areas are a danger for drivers and pedestrians. How about taking the planters to these new location? The project took some months. Finally after some persistent requests the planters were moved. Have you noticed them?

Planter number one in three steps:
















Planter number two. Before and after a little TLC:









And Planter number three: just a little topsoil and not much elese done but it is still OK:










Now it is time to keep fertilizing and watch nature take its course. What was the cost to Aquarius? None, nada, zilch. All work of an anonymous donor.
