Being a good neighbour is important wherever you go but is an essential part of living a happy life in Bermuda where our sense of community is strong. Committing to spruce up the exterior of your home and surrounding area shows your neighbours that you support living in a happy and healthy environment.
A beautiful environment to live in keeps everybody happy. Make sure your house and yard are up to the standards of those around you!
Trim Overhanging Trees
You don’t want to be the neighbour everybody scorns because your trees drop flowers and leaves that cover the ground unneccesarily. Even worse – fruiting trees like the Surinam cherry and paw-paw drop fruit, which can attract rats if it’s not cleaned up promptly. Be sure to manicure your shrubs and trees with a quick prune every now and then to keep them ship shape. In addition to making the neighborhood look better, trimmed trees are an asset during hurricane season!
Don’t Keep Trash in your Yard
Easier said than done! Dispose of your trash properly so that your yard doesn’t get out of hand. Tynes Bay waste drop off is open week days from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and holidays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Keep your House and Roof Painted and Maintained
Remove mould from your exterior walls, and give your house a fresh coat of paint every now and then. In Bermuda, keeping your roof nice and bright won’t just get you brownie points in the neighbourhood – it’ll ensure your water is safe to drink.
Cut your Grass
Cutting your grass is the easiest way to make your lawn look spick and span! If you don’t have time to mow the lawn yourself, get a neighbourhood kid to do it for you for a little extra pocket money – this has the added benefit of making the neighbourhood feel more like a community.
Plant Something Beautiful
If your lawn is tidy and your house is clean, why not try your hand at planting something? A well-maintained garden will give you years of enjoyment, especially if you decide to plant something edible!
