Good Fences (and Landscaping) Make Good Neighborhoods – Alhambra Preservation Group Sponsors February 24 Event

Are you considering an outdoor home improvement project this spring? Ever wondered how you could extend the aesthetic of your historic home into the great outdoors? Then plan on attending Alhambra Preservation Group’s winter event entitled Good Fences (and Landscaping) Make Good Neighborhoods this February 24, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Alhambra Civic Center Library’s Community Room.

The evening event will feature talks by Sean Mitchell and James Reineck, two local artisans who have years of experience making the spaces outside homes more inviting. Sean Mitchell, owner of Bungalow Fences and Gates, established his business in 2008 after requests from Pasadena residents to produce Arts & Crafts-styled fences. Since then, he has built scores of custom decorative fences and gates in the San Gabriel Valley, working with discriminating homeowners, architects and landscape designers. James Reineck, landscape designer and owner of Jamescapes, began his career seven years ago and has completed hundreds of jobs, providing detailed landscaping installations and designs for clients and garnering beautification awards from Pasadena and Monrovia. Prior to the talks, Alhambra Preservation Group’s president, Christine Olson will give a short presentation on Alhambra’s Design Guidelines, a newly adopted guide available to residents interested in making improvements to their homes.

Remember! Spring (and those planned home improvement projects) are just around the corner, so join Alhambra Preservation Group on Thursday, February 24, 2011, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Alhambra Civic Center Library Community Room, 101 South First Street, Alhambra, CA 91801. Parking is available in the library’s underground parking structure and light refreshments will be served.
