Garden Maintenance Tips

Summer is the most difficult time of the year on plants. Our gardens take the brunt of the harsh sunlight and temperatures. To keep your garden looking healthy and beautiful all season long, here are summer garden maintenance tips our real estate agents recommend.

  1. Water Properly
    Watering is undoubtedly the most important aspect of summer garden maintenance, but how you go about it makes a big difference. There are many pathogens in the air and soil that need water to reproduce, grow, and move. So, be sure to apply water directly to the ground using drip irrigation or soaker hoses to limit moisture on a plant's foliage. Water sitting on the leaves can lead to mold formation and disease infestation.

    When giving your plants a drink, you want to make sure that the water goes down to the deep roots.

Haven't found your dream home yet? This could be the weekend. 

Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region. From Alamance County in the West all the way to Wayne County in the East, we have the homes you seek.

Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

Happy Father's Day to all of the wonderful dads out there!

Donate Blood in Raleigh

World Blood Donor Day, which takes place every year on June 14, is a day to raise awareness for the need of blood donations around the world and to thank the many people who donate life-saving blood each year. This year's edition of World Blood Donor Day is especially important, because so many medical facilities are in need of blood due to COVID-19. Our real estate agents have put together a list of blood drives and donation facilities where you can donate blood for World Blood Donor Day this year.

World Blood Donor Day: Where to Donate Near Raleigh

  • What to Know Before You Donate
    In the past blood drives would often allow walk-in donors, but this year there are extra precautions in place due to COVID-19. For donors, the main difference is that you'll have to schedule an appointment in order to donate this year. Both donation centers and blood drives have appointment slots available in 15-minute intervals. You can schedule your appointment online, or call ahead to save your appointment slot.

  • The Blood Connection – 5925 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27612
    With convenient locations near Raleigh homes for sale and in other nearby communities, The Blood Connection is a donation center with appointments available 7 days per week. The Blood Connection has appointments available for both whole blood and plasma donations every day. Anyone over 16 years of age is eligible to donate, and donors are eligible to give blood as long as it has been at least 56 days since your last donation.

  • North Raleigh Blood Donation Center – 8301 Bandford Way, Raleigh, NC 27613
    The North Raleigh Blood Donation Center will be hosting daily drives six days per week starting on June 11, with a wide variety of time slots available. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday appointments are available from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If an evening appointment better suits your schedule, you can sign up for a slot from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday or Tuesday. On Thursday, you can set up a donation at any time from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. 

  • Crabtree Valley Mall – June 24 – 4325 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC 27612
    There will be a blood drive sponsored by iHeartRadio at the Crabtree Valley Mall on June 24, with appointments available from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The mall is currently open with additional safety and sanitation procedures in place, so you can plan a day of shopping around your donation. There have often been summer blood drives at Crabtree Valley Mall with great success, and appointment slots will likely fill up fast this year. At this blood drive, anyone can donate whole blood, and you can donate Power Red if your blood type is O, A Negative, or B Negative.

  • Raleigh Blood Donation Center – 100 N Peartree Ln., Raleigh, NC 27610
    The Red Cross has two blood donation centers in Raleigh, and the Raleigh Blood Donation Center is open for donations three days per week. Appointments are available on Monday from 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This donation center accepts both whole blood and Power Red donations. Schedule your appointment by calling the Red Cross, or visiting the Donation Center website.
