Everyone enjoys the look of a nice healthy lawn. Not only do lawns increase the value of a property, they also cool the air, combat glare and noise, and reduce soil erosion. Perhaps most importantly, a healthy lawn actively filters and traps sediments and pollutants that could otherwise contaminate ground and/or surface water. Other than mowing it on a weekly basis during the summer, how do you get the best possible lawn for your grass species?
You don’t have to travel too far to find a body of water in Florida. No one is more than two hours from either coast, but you don’t even have to go to the coast to enjoy the scenic beauty that being on the water brings. In DeLand, there is a beautiful scenic jewel that everyone can enjoy called the St. Johns River. What’s great is that everyone can enjoy this amazing resource, regardless of income.
Baseball fever came to DeLand for a short period of time. For the first time in school history, the Stetson University baseball team hosted and won an NCAA Regional Championship. The team went on to the Super Regional tournament against University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC where Stetson's cinderella season came to an end, but it lit a spark in a town that is hungry to see their hometown university be national competitors.
So you’re moving to DeLand? Wonderful! DeLand in itself offers so much to residents, but what makes it even better is its accessibility to the places that other people travel thousands of miles to visit. Located about 27 miles from beautiful Volusia County beaches and only 51 miles from the Walt Disney World Resort, residents of DeLand live in the middle of the best of both worlds.
Everyone hates insurance…until we need it. When it comes to your biggest investment—your home— you can’t afford to go without insurance. Losing your home in a catastrophic event like a fire or tornado would be a nightmare. The last thing you want is to realize you don’t have the money to repair or rebuild your home.
Not all “Realtors” are created equal. Like “Coke” is often used to refer to any soda, the term “Realtor” is often used interchangeably among all real estate agents, but it is really a designation of an agent or agency that is part of the National Association of Realtors. The National Association of Realtors was founded in Chicago on May 13, 1908 as the National Association of Real Estate Exchanges. It became what is now called the National Association of Realtors (NAR) in 1972.
Ask any DeLandite his or her opinions on the housing development boom of South DeLand or the newest roundabout just south of downtown and you’ll get a variety of opinions and probably start some heated arguments. However, you ask the same residents about the improvements made to Georgia Avenue in Downtown DeLand, and you’re likely to hear a chorus of approving responses.
There is something that kids of all ages appreciate, and that is ice cream, especially good ice cream. DeLand certainly has several places to choose from, but one of the favorites is The Sweet Spot. It is a down right staple! Every flavor is homemade with creativity and love. Some of the favorites include Maple Bacon, Key Lime Pie and Salted Chocolate Toffee.
Cemeteries are a place to memorialize loved ones that have passed on before us. They provide a rich history of our past and help shape stories to tell future generations. Cemeteries, like any property, require maintenance, that if left unattended will let those stories fade. That has been the recent case at Union Cemetery, a traditionally African American cemetery that has been in disrepair until now.
