Rochester Hills lawn care
Some communities have it, some don't. It might be the abundance of parks and outdoor activities, a business-friendly attitude that attracts new companies, or simply an overall, undefinable sense of charm that says the city is something special. Rochester Hills, Michigan has it. The pride that locals hold in their community, businesses, and homes is evident. However, just a year before this flourishing city was founded, things didn't look quite so promising.
It was an odd year for weather in Michigan, 1816. Freezing temperatures destroyed the normally flourishing buds and flowers of spring in May; then snow storms arrived in June, while ice still covered ponds in July. Right on through the end of the year, which became known as "Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death," the unusual weather, resulting in economic downturn and hardships made life difficult for the hardy stock of pioneers. The unusual weather of 1816 had not been the norm for this area in the midwest. Scientists believe it may have been the result of three volcanic eruptions in the Far East. However, the city was established in 1817 and never looked back. The 21st century Rochester Hills appears quite different.
Locals love the outdoors. Outdoor Engagement provides many activities throughout the year. Stroll pathways with Nature Walks A-Z at Innovation Hills and learn about local plants and animals. Sign the kids up for Outdoor Adventure Camp to provide not only summer fun but also an edge in their knowledge about local lore. Thelma G. Spencer Park has something for everyone; a 38-acre lake, watercraft rentals, tennis and volleyball courts, nature paths, play structures and areas for barbecues and family events. The annual Festival of the Hills at Borden Park is the number one spot to enjoy fireworks, games and to try out the local cuisine. A visit to the Community Garden Project at Wabash Park, Avon Nature Study Area, or a day at one of the many outdoor attractions all shows that even three volcanic eruptions couldn't stop the movers and shakers of Rochester Hills!
Stoney Creek Village is home to the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. This interactive encounter with history makes the past come alive. Children are treated as special guests. Terrific Tuesdays have been created to promote learning about gardening and plants, horticulture and entomology. Crafts and snacks round out the day. Take a stroll through the public and private gardens of Rochester Hills during the Garden Walk, co-sponsored by the Museum and the Rochester Garden Club. Hop on your bicycle and enjoy Pedal the Past, a four-mile bike tour of the city emphasizing days gone by that have made the community what it is today.
With its reputation for knowledgeable residents, the educational system in Rochester Hills is top-notch. For the youngest members of the community, Rochester Community Schools offers the RCS Caring Steps Children's Center. The center provides learning opportunities and all-day care. The other school campuses including Baldwin, Delta Kelly, and Meadow Brook elementary schools, Hart and Van Hoosen middle schools and Stoney Creek high school lay out a precise academic pathway toward higher learning available right within the city limits.
Oakland University and Rochester University draw not only local students but are known around the United States for their rigorous academic programs. Rochester University's manicured 88-acre campus overlooks the Clinton River. The school was established in 1954 as Michigan Christian College and became Rochester University in 1997. Students enjoy taking a break from academics walking along the Clinton River or heading out for a snack at Yates Cider Mill, a local tradition.
Beautifully landscaped homes are a trademark in Rochester Hills. Whether it's a stately historic residence or a friendly cottage, Kentucky Bluegrass and fescue mix lawns are fertilized and aerated regularly, mowed and kept clear of fallen leaves and other debris to ensure a crisp, attractive appearance. Creating a beautiful setting for a home doesn't come easily. It's a lot of work to keep the yard in the kind of immaculate condition that causes people to stop and take a second look. With lives as busy as they are in the 21st century, yard care quickly becomes overwhelming.
