June 2018 Park & Garden News

The season is now underway and the Park and Garden is enjoying an excellent start to the 2018 season.

The Park and Garden Rental Office has moved to the Retail Center and features rental of Golf Carts, various Watercraft and the new Bicycles.

We are off to a great start with the softener program this year. We still have softeners available for those members who want to help remove the rust and hard water from their water supply.

Golf Cart rental is underway and we want to encourage you to reserve your golf carts for the holidays early, to ensure that one is available. You can reserve online, by calling 616-896-9888, or stopping by the Rental Office. No payment is required in advance with a 24 hour cancellation policy. Six passenger carts are gas, have windshields, USB charging plugs and mirrors. The four passenger carts are electric. All the carts are Club Cars and we still have our former EZ-Go carts. All carts are rented on a per day basis this year. We have lowered the price of the 4 passenger to $50 per day. All carts are to be returned by 10 am. Dale Yoder is manager of the Golf Cart Rental Office. We are still offering batteries at the office. Stop by and talk with Dale.

If you haven’t been in the store lately, stop by and see the new products we have in stock this year. Bulk bird seed and grass seed is still available. RV chemicals and products are available. Reminder: please avoid using products with formaldehyde. Lawn care products, fishing supplies, toys for the young ones, plumbing and electrical supplies and Christmas Lights are all part of our inventory. We have a new supply of bird feeders and suet for our friends that inhabit the park.

Bulk products of mulch, limestone, crushed stone, seepage stone, sand and top soil are available, as always. We look forward to helping you keep your site looking beautiful this summer.

Stop by and say hi to our new staff. Even though you do not see the plants out in the front of the store, we still have beautiful hanging and potted flowers provided by Outback, as in the past. They can be seen just behind the Rental Office area.

We have included pictures of the new bulk product pits that have been moved to an area behind the Park and Garden. We know many of you would like to see the new area, but we request that you avoid driving back there on your golf carts, as there is a problem with vehicles moving in and out of the area.

MARINA: We will again have the marina available on Wednesdays from 5 – 8 pm (weather permitting), Fridays from 5 – 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from Noon – 5 pm. Ethenol free fuel is available. We will continue the rental of paddleboards, kayaks and rowboats from the Marina site. If it is not a scheduled time for the marina to be open; you can stop by the rental office and make an appointment to rent a watercraft. The paddle boards and kayaks became a big hit last summer, so plan some time to try out the watercraft. We have added a double Kayak for enjoyment by couples.

If you need propane for your trailer or grills it is available at the Park and Garden. Come to the store and we will check your tank for acceptable dates and then take it to the new area to fill the propane. If you haven’t noticed, the propane tank is now located next to the bullpen gate, behind the Retail Center.

The Park and Garden will also have some clothing and other Sandy Pines articles at the store this year. Stop by and see what is available. Small tools and other landscaping items are available to rent from the rental office this year. Need to do some work but don’t want to buy a rake, post hole digger, shovel etc.? Stop by the Rental Office or Park and Garden and see what we have available.
