plan to gather at Northgeen Clubhouse parking lot at 8:00am

Jeffreys. Gloves, vests and bags will be provided. With enough
community-minded participants, we can cover additional streets
in Northgreen. If you cannot come out to help, please clean

Spring is just around the corner. Spring is a good time to take inventory of the condition of our air conditioner, roof & gutters, to power wash away mold and mildew and replace rotted wood. If cash is short, seek a line-of-equity. Don't let delayed maintenance grow into major expense. Remember the 'ole “stitch in time saves nine”!

The Power of Shade Trees
For those who have very small lots with limited space for trees, small low-growing trees such as dogwoods and redbuds are attractive landscaping additions. However, there is a world of difference between these and the large shade trees that are needed to remove pollutants from our air, shade our houses, reduce our energy bills and stimulate more humane behavior. We should challenge ourselves to see how many shade trees we can plant on our property! Please read a few of the following articles describing the many benefits of actual shade trees!

From The Realtors' Point Of View
in Northgreen, and as real-estate professionals, we are often
asked "What is my home worth?" and "Is there
demand for the Northgreen area?" Obviously, we all want
a home investment that appreciates in value and is in demand,
so that we can see prices go up. Having lived in Northgreen,
and having worked in the residential sales market for many
years, here are our observations:
make decisions to choose an area to live in, they consider
several things. One of the most important things is the overall
image/appearance of the neighborhood. People want to feel
that there is pride in ownership. Before they look at specific
homes that might suit them, they want to get a good feel for
the neighborhood. We, as homeowners, must do certain things
to attract buyers to the neighborhood... people that we would
enjoy having as neighbors!
and keep up your homes exterior. Repair and paint to keep
good curb appeal. Maintain your lawn. Keep your grass cut
regularly and the bushes trimmed. Do NOT park cars anywhere
except in a driveway space, make arrangements to extend your
driveway into the backyard, or put cars in the rear... preferably
behind a fence! Anywhere but your front yard. Finish your
projects. Clean up and put away your tools, toys, etc. when
not in use.
things have gotten to be a problem in Northgreen. People ride
through and see unkept properties, cars in yards, and ask
about enforcement of the restrictive covenants and city ordinances.
They leave our area and buy in neighborhoods where homeowners
have more respect for curb appeal and general neatness. Homeowners,
as well as owners of rental properties make sure that this
is not occurring.
do not go up when demand is low! We must create demand for
our area! We live in a terrific location. There is no reason
for us not to have some of the most desirable properties in
town... but we all need to be positive! The golf course is
open again under new, local owners. We all need to support
their effort to make sure the golf course remains an asset,
not only for Northgreen, but for the Rocky Mount community.
We live on a championship course.....one of the undisputed
best in the area. Be proud of that and tell people that Northgreen
is a great place to live! Get to know your neighbors... and
encourage them to finish all of their outside projects to
improve the appearance of their yard and home. Promote the
positive aspects of living in our neighborhood... large homes
and lots, golf course community, convenience to shopping,
dining, banking, and recreation. Let's make sure we maintain
our pride in ownership. As a united community, we can be one
of the best neighborhoods in Nash County!
