Once Upon a Time - Gardens

Long ago, CV was called "Century Gardens in Century Village", the sales brochure offered you water view OR garden view.

What is a garden?

A garden is a place where your soul connects with the earth.

Peace. Sanctuary. Beauty. Contemplation. Connection. Sound. Smell. A sense of place.

What makes a garden?

Soil. Sun. Birds and butterflies. Good intentions. Rainfall. Flowers, shrubs, and trees. Color. Structure. Inspiration. Love.

And if you want to sell more units, work on your garden. I hear the bus riders critique which are the best buildings in the village, they are looking at gardens and paint.

  1. You are so right! I live in Stratford L and our gardens are beautiful thanks to one of our unit owners. She loves gardening. We are very lucky to have her. We have a great building with wonderful people. I am on the board and we always maintain our building's needs. Our president works very hard and we appreciate her knowledge and time she spends keeping our building safe and beautiful. Remember, it's a team effort.
