This place is completely repulsive!I have lived here for 8 months and have had more issues than should be allowed. I found this place in a hurry since I had just moved here and needed somewhere to live. My rent is $560 for a 1 bedroom, which is a very great price and i love the location. The layout of my apt is gorgeous because I have a very updated kitchen, and large walk-in bathroom that has storage shelves. I love it!However, the customer service here is by far, the worst that I have EVER SEEN! I live on the backside, where there is a mini swamp in the back of my apartment. I also live on the bottom terrace and have had so many bug issues. There are spiders, water bugs, centipedes, gnats, mosquitos..the list never ends! The complex is physically appealing when you visit because the landscaping is pretty and all. However, these looks are extremely deceiving!- when I 1st moved in, there were spiders & webs PAINTED over inside the corners of the closets- yes! seriously??!- my peephole doesn't work, meaning i can't see for some reason when someone is at my door..-there are millions of spider webs, spiders and other insects on the stairs leading to my apt, on the walls outside of my apt, etc..since I have been here, maintenance has only hosed the place down with water ONE time to remove these bugs..its a mess!-i waited 6 months for maintenance to put screens into my windows because I couldn't open my window to let in any air without the screens due to all the bugs. Recently, they put in screens in my bedroom but I still can't open my living room windows.-The heat & AC wasn't going into my bedroom when I turned it on, maintenance came, put a hole in my ceiling with the attempt to fix it, 1 month later came and patched up the hole...and i STILL don't have any air or heat inside my bedroom!- one night the carbon monoxide alarm went off, my friends and I ran outside in a panic, called the fire dept who came out in minutes & told us that everything was ok but to have our maint change the batteries.. I called that night...they came to check it out THREE WEEKS LATER!! The friggin guy didn't even understand english or speak it! He was of no help to me!-the apt has a large amount of mildew on the window sills since we can't open to windows to get in any fresh air. Once again, we are right behind a swamp so it is constantly moist and damp within our home. We have to literally run inside the door of the apt each night to avoid allowing time for other bugs to also enter our apt because they are constantly flying around the door-there is constantly random people walking behind my apartment..not sure why but it doesn't seem to safe to me. I barely open my patio door even the blinds since I don't want ppl to be able to see inside my place.- There are way too many stray animals around here! They tend to sit right in our section for some reason and I am pretty sure they are bringing fleas and other horrible diseases into our homes :(The only positives is this place has a gym. Its pretty reasonable. Its not 24 hrs as mgmnt said it would be but it works for the most part. There are many broken pieces of equipment that take months to fix and sometimes its crowded because ppl bring their kids and allow them to play on the equipment. stupid!The pool always looks so filthy. I have never used it. I go somewhere else to swim. This is a highly hispanic population...hard to communicate if you don't speak Spanish...Overall, the rent is cheap. thats about it! I am definitely NOT renewing my lease and i wouldn't recommend this place to anyone! You can find someplace better where the office staff actually enforce the work orders, and pretend to care about their renters..

First, I would like to say that The office is very comfort and staff is very helpful. I was very pleased with my apartment and the professional staff that helped me through the whole process..
Tips & Advices
Yes, many nurseries ship plants and trees, but inter-state shipping regulations are complex and strict, and nurseries must be in compliance regardless of whether that disallows a customer order. Also, even if items are allowed to ship, they might not survive if outside the proper USDA growing zones--in which case a nursery might try to discourage the customer from placing the order.
The ease of caring for fruit trees varies according to where you live, but lemon trees and apple trees are widely considered easy to grow. Pear trees are fast-growing but need to be planted alongside another pear variety to bear fruit. Stone fruit trees, especially cherries and plums, are popular in regions with defined seasons and cool winters.  In hot/humid regions, banana trees (producing small varieties of banana) and mango trees are known as “fast fruiters” that require little care.
Plant Hardiness Zones are the government-researched standard geographical breakdown of broad climate regions across the United States. The USDA has created a map of the United States, which includes 11 planting zones. This map helps gardeners determine what to plant when, based on accumulated weather data. Factors like soil quality and microclimates are not accounted for in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zones, and should certainly be taken into consideration as well.
Perennial plants and trees grow anew each spring, and are dormant in the winter. Annuals have a lifespan of only one growing season, and need to be replanted each year.
Evergreen is a term for plants and trees that keep some green foliage year-round. While the term “evergreen” is closely associated with pine trees, many other types of trees are also evergreen, including live oak, blue spruce, eucalypts, and most of the coniferous cousins of pine.
