Well, it’s that time of year when we start thinking about spring! The Eastern PA Spring Home Show will be held at the Allentown Fairgrounds, Feb 19th to the 21st. The gate fee is only $8.00, and well worth it! You can get more info here: http://www.jenksproductions.com/paspringhomeshow.html This has been a very interesting winter to say the least. We sat around doing nothing for weeks, waiting for it to snow and then 30″ in one day. We are all looking forward to spring after that. The show is a great way to get into the spring spirit! The Eastern PA Spring Home Show is in it’s 14th season. We at Rgreen(C) have been attending for the last several years. This home show gives home owners a chance to see new products and some great outdoor ideas. In the past, some of the setups have been well beyond what anyone could dream to be inside. Rgreen(C) advertises mainly the fertilization aspect of our business. The spring show has vendors that can do anything to your house, from roof to basement to the outdoor living space you have always wanted. If you are looking for a new patio or outdoor kitchen or to have a weed free green lawn, stop by and say hello at booth #5 (can’t miss us). If we don’t offer the service you are looking for we can help you find the right vendor. We love talking to current, past and future customers. There is an owner in the both all weekend.
As always, please buy local!
You might be wondering why this should be important to you. Well, let’s first talk about taxes. Local businesses can have a significant impact on the local economy by paying sales tax to the city and county. If you make a choice to use a company outside the Lehigh Valley, the local cities and counties loose that benefit. What benefits, you ask? Taxes paid to local governments by Rgreen® are used for many things, including roads, public schools, sidewalks and public parks. In addition, the funds may add more police or firemen. Some cities subsidize youth sport as well.
Rgreen© provides job opportunities to Lehigh Valley residents. This can be in the way of part-time help, or full-time management. Local jobs keep the residents in town during their shift, so the advantages extrapolate outward as the employee spends money at the local restaurant during meal breaks, gasses up at the local station to get to work, and stops at the local grocery store on the way home at night. Fun fact: Rgreen® will employ up to fifty Lehigh Valley people in the winter, during a snow storm.
In addition, Rgreen®, a Lehigh Valley family owned business, will provide better customer care than an outside company. When you call Rgreen®, a family member answers the phone. Rgreen® cares about the Valley and the environment.
Ask your lawn care company where their main office is. If it’s not in the Lehigh Valley, consider buying local. Rgreen® offers quotes over the phone as well as on site estimates. Along with organic and hybrid turf fertilization programs, we also offer a full line of landscaping services. Give us a call at 610-440-1175 or visit our website www.rgeenlawn.com.

Winter storm Gorgon will bring snow to the Lehigh Valley on Tuesday 1/6/15. Bethlehem, Allentown and the surrounding areas will receive up to 3” of snow. In a 48 hour period the storm will cover a swath of over 2000 miles. Starting in the Northern Rockies then to the Midwest and ending upon our door step in the Northeast. Jackson Hole Wyoming received at least 17 inches form Gorgon.
So far this year the Lehigh Valley, including Center Valley, Whitehall, Bethlehem and Allentown has seen little snow. The predictions still call for a winter like last year. Let’s hope they are wrong.
