LakeSmart-Start! is a component of the Friends SLOW THE FLOW program, designed to protect and improve the waters of the Cobbossee Watershed by lessening soil erosion and run-off. Sponsored by DR Struck Landscape Nursery, Pat Jackson, Inc./Tri-City Septic, Dave's Appliance, Sylvester Excavating, Inc. and Royal Car Wash, LakeSmart-Start! adds value and appeal to your waterfront property while protecting the Cobbossee Watershed at the same time. It’s also the first step towards qualifying for the State of Maine’s prestigious LakeSmart© Award, presented to lake leaders for sustainable landscaping.
We’ll meet with you on your site and provide you with planting tips, ideas and suggestions on the right trees, shrubs and plants for both beautifying your property and benefiting the water as well. After the meeting, we’ll provide you with a sketch of your property with recommendations on which plants will work best and where they would best be planted. The drawn plan that we’ll provide will be specific to your property….and the cost is FREE!
Program Director Jay Lindsey is targeting 100 site visits for this summer and will provide you with a coupon that offers even more incentives from our sponsors. Your COUPONS will entitle you to:15% off of all shrubs and plants at DR Struck nursery; $10 off a septic tank cleaning, along with a free bag of compost from Pat Jackson, Inc. and a free car wash, at Royal Car Wash, a $10 value.
