Plant an herb garden in your Township apartments with these tips.

  • You want to start by making sure you get pots with trays. The trays will help hold excess water and help keep things clean in your apartments. You can purchase the size you desire based on what herbs you want to plant.
  • When choosing herbs to plant, you want to make sure you go for resilient ones. Some of the best herbs to plant are basil, mint, chives, thyme and sage. These are all great for cooking and garnishing and they grow well.
  • Next you want to get your pot ready. Start by filling it with soil until it’s about 3/4 full. You can then add some water to make a loose mud composition. You don’t want water dripping out, if that’s the case, there is too much.
  • Dig a small hole in the center of the pot to put your plant in. Cover the roots entirely. You then want to place the pot in a nice sunny area. Be sure to water it regularly. Most herbs you can preen and they will regrow. So you can enjoy for a long time.

When planting a herb garden in our eco-friendly apartments in Redwood City, you can use these tips. Planting herbs is a great way to add an element of freshness to your meals year round.

Keep Your Big Dog Happy in Your Apartments

August 26th, 2015

Finding the perfect apartment involves keeping the whole family happy, including the four-legged members. With the perfect surroundings for walking and exercising your dog and a specially designed dog wash station so that you don’t take your walk home with you, our luxury pet-friendly apartments in Redwood City we’re constantly trying to do our part.

Here are a few things you can do for your furry friend:

  • Exercise and play are crucial for your dog’s wellbeing, especially if you have a big dog in a small apartment. Keep in mind, however, that dogs need variety in their exercise just as we do. Find a local dog park where they can run off the leash and socialize. Mix this time with longer, on-leash walks and vary the routes to provide new experiences and smells.
  • Routines are also important. Your dog needs to know when things will happen, particularly when it is time to go out, to eat and to be calm. Having a good routine will minimize the risk of accidents on your new apartment floor. If you are out at work all day, you need to find a way to maintain your pet’s routine and to stop him from getting bored and lonely. Hiring a pet sitter or dog walker might be an answer, or you can opt for a local doggie day care. You may even find neighbors without pets who love spending time with your pooch and who are willing to help.
  • The last thing you want in your apartment is a large dog with fleas. The bigger the dog, the more space they have to eat and breed. Use high-quality flea prevention and groom your dog regularly, preferably outside.

And if you’re still looking for the pet-friendly home, contact us to arrange your tour of Township today!

The Chalk Full of Fun on the 4th Festival is set to take place on Broadway Avenue. You can find it between Jefferson Street and Redwood Creek Crossing. The festival is scheduled to run from 7:00am until 4:00pm. Participation is free and open to the public, but you do need to register to secure your spot. You can sign up as an artist, sponsor or volunteer by visiting the official event website.

Signing up as an artist allows you to help color the streets and sidewalks of the entire area. There are four categories of artists, which are third to eighth grade students, high school students, family teams of multiple ages and professional artists. While artists are separated into select categories, everyone will work together to bring add a splash of color to Downtown Redwood City. The goal is to have the chalk painting completed by 3pm, so guests can come together and view the masterpiece as a whole.

The event is free because of sponsors, and you can help by sponsoring an artist for anywhere between $20 and $100. Additional proceeds will benefit the RWC Parks and Arts Foundation.

You can also help out with the event itself by signing up as a volunteer.

If you love to interact, discuss the Chalk Full of Fun on the 4th Festival on our Township Luxury Apartments Facebook page.
