Communication with Logan Homes is routine and nearly always includes pictures which is most helpful since I am building remotely.

KYDeebs - our lot is in the reserve. We are closing on our home in CT today so hope to go to building contract soon. I met a lovely woman who has lived in SJP for the last 8 years who summers in the same little beach community where we have a cottage .Small world. She, too, had a "calling card." I think it's a great idea as I remember faces but am terrible with names.

Yes, the coastal region is all sand. You need to add fertilizer and water to everything. My garden is a raised bed filled with "garden soil" because I couldn't get a decent crop in the natural sand.

Great for you to get away from those Ct. winters. Those "Calling Cards" are a great idea.
Thanks for the tip....

It's even sandier! For veg gardens, most people do raised beds....and buy proper garden soil and compost.

We are all sand on the southern RI coast. I make my own compost and find the payback to be off the charts in the form of water retention, soil nutrients and the production of world class veggies, without chemical fertilizers.
