Our preschools need planter boxes!





7.1.18



Our son is a preschool student and we want to share with him our love of nature and being outdoors. We believe that it's important to learn from an early age how to grow your own garden. Kids should be allowed the opportunity to discover why plants have roots and the importance of insects and animals have in keeping our world a healthy place to live.



"So when his preschool reached out to us with a dream of building garden boxes to grow a vegetable garden, we jumped in to help."





So when his preschool reached out to us with a dream of building garden boxes to grow a vegetable garden, we jumped in to help. We partnered with our local lumber supplier here in Fort Collins, Cedar Supply to provide finished cedar lumber and donated our time to install raised cedar planter beds.



"Now Cody seems to be the authority of which insects are good for gardens and how to care for plants; as he constantly is giving me advice on our own home garden."



Our son was able to work with David to build them. Mind you, his contribution was limited to choosing the songs to work to and handing them screws. My husband normally likes family-friendly upbeat music to work by but not "Baby Shark" on repeat. Being a good sport, he didn't complain too much. Now Cody seems to be the authority of which insects are good for gardens and how to care for plants; as he constantly is giving me advice on our own home garden.





Our first donation of planter boxes was so appreciated that at his new school, We decided to do it all again. If as a business, all we leave as our legacy is a slew of places where children and families can play and grow together then I consider us successful local entrepreneurs. Contributing to our neighborhoods like this is a great way for us to grow as a business while we grow as a nature loving community.


Growing a business is a lot like a garden, in that you put in hard work and make sure you use the right tools and know the best way to care for it. You pray for good weather. But as every gardener knows after a hailstorm or water damage you need to make repairs fast. Our Contractors can quickly fix the damage caused by faulty fireplaces, hail, or burst pipes and we work hard to make sure it's as good as new.

In 2018 and now 2019 the unpredictable weather has kept us busy working with home owners on their insurance claims to fix hail damaged decking, pergolas and siding. We've been able to resurrect many outdoor living spaces as well as several bathrooms and fireplaces after an insurance claim was made.


"It's great to have someone like us making the repairs who knows what the insurance companies require and makes the struggle of dealing with an insurance claim change into an opportunity to make your home even better than before by incorporating those changes you want to make while staying within your budget and getting it done quickly."


I don't know about you but my experience in dealing with the aftermath of water damage, fire, snow or hail and worrying about all the work that needs to be done can be daunting to say the least. It's great to have someone like us making the repairs who knows what the insurance companies require and makes the struggle of dealing with an insurance claim change into an opportunity to make your home even better than before by incorporating those changes you want to make while staying within your budget and getting it done quickly.





The best way to keep your home or garden in good shape is by doing routine maintenance and when needed having a professional come out to ensure everything is built and cared for properly. If you're questioning how much longer your deck or pergola had before it needs to be replaced we can help.



"We do free deck inspections so your home doesn't end up looking like the one above..."


We do free deck inspections so your home doesn't end up looking like the one above which we are repairing this Spring. It's sometimes hard to know when your home repairs are cosmetic or if they are a safety concern. Give our knowledgeable contractors a call and let us take away your worry. We also guarantee our work so you have piece of mind that should something happen we are there for you and work quickly to resolve any issues.







This guarantee includes our community outreach projects like the garden boxes which are now at two local preschools. And the garden is now thriving under the care of the teachers and students who had this to say about the project:


"I am one of the recipients of these amazing garden beds. My students have the good fortune to learn the importance of growing their own food and we are forever grateful here at Global Village International Preschool. Our gratitude for these beautifully crafted donations to our non-profit runs deep..." -Mrs. Gleason





"GVI Preschool Fort Collins is grateful every day ..we will soon be pulling our carrots and picking peas and have been enjoying tomatoes and yellow squash. We look forward to next year's strawberries and lavender...The children are so fortunate to have this valuable experience made possible by your generosity and Cedar Supply."
