As part of Debug the Myth’s efforts in New Hampshire, we are teaming up with local lawn experts Joe Gaukstern of Lawn Dawg Lawn Care, Tim Boyle of Giant Landscaping and Chris Pestana with JP Pest Services to help the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester beautify the landscaping around their newly renovated building.
On November 3, from 3-5 p.m., we will be revamping the landscaping around the club to provide a well-maintained gathering space for outdoor activities, while reviving the look of the club’s building. Members of the Boys & Girls Club will be included as we plant shrubs and flowers, take pictures on our green screen technology so the kids can star in their very own “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” moment, and several other lawn care and pest management related kids’ activities.
Proper management of the grounds in outdoor gathering places – like community parks, playgrounds and sporting fields – is important to reduce tripping hazards and other ailments or injuries that can occur due to invasive weeds or poorly kept grass. We hope that a well-maintained yard and playground area will not only create a safe playing environment, but will also provide the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester with an outdoor gathering space that its members can be proud of!
