Low-Maintenance Landscaping Tips for Mobile Homes

Bob Silverman, LawnStarter
Never forget the three Ls when buying a new mobile home: location, landscaping, and low maintenance.
Living in Florida, we have the location handled. Landscaping your mobile home with low-maintenance plants and hardscaping means you’ll spend less time working on your yard and more time enjoying it.
Mobile and manufactured home communities provide simple living for singles, couples, families, and those looking to retire in Florida. The amenities are endless: swimming pools, clubhouses, golf courses, and just about everything else nearby to keep you busy.

2020 Brought More from the Northeast and Midwest to the Sunshine State

Florida has always attracted retirees and snowbirds from all across the U.S., but in 2020 we saw a specific increase in interest from those living in the Northeast and Midwest and wanting to move down to the Sunshine State.
Many want to escape some of the more populous areas and retire early in Florida manufactured homes. Several seek the lifestyle and amenities afforded by the various mobile home communities, of which they may not have up north. Others are looking for more affordable housing options that offer better space and included services such as lawn care. And, as always, we find that most desire more sunshine and warmer temperatures, of which Central Florida has in abundance.
The global COVID-19 pandemic caused a backlog in demand as states shut down and fewer new homes were being built and sold. In 2020, compared to previous years, we heard from more ...

Lakes at Leesburg Annual Golf Cart Christmas Parade Spreads Holiday Cheer

The Lakes at Leesburg mobile home community recently held their annual golf cart Christmas parade, and it was a huge success! Residents showed their creativity and shared the spirit of the season by decorating their golf carts with everything from bows, garlands, lights, wrapping paper, toys and presents, to wreaths, stockings, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and more. Several residents also had VIP guests on their floats: their pups!

For added incentive, parade participants can enter the annual contest for the "Best Decorated Golf Cart". This year's first place winner was "The Candy Man".
