I love the place because they maintain the natural beauty of the area. There are rules against cutting down trees, adding fences and all electrical wires are underground.
Sounds like a wonderful community with lots to offer for the residents

We use Fast Action Pest Control. We have them come out in the spring and spray everything... It's a couple hundred (but they do all the house, garage, eaves, and even check for termites out near our wooden retaining walls, etc if we need. We're pleased with the service... They are very busy guys though so I call early (end of Feb.) to get on the list for service. We just do the once a year and don't have any bug/ant problems (basement).


Lawn services.... there's a ton of them. A couple of large services we found were quite overpriced for the amount of work. Most of our property is woods. We found an individual that does ours, does a great job, and only does it when it is needed (about every 10 days or so depending on the weather). You won't have a problem there either...

Thanks for the info. What could we expect to pay for 1/2 acre for lawn service? Is there any realtors you would recommend?

I'd say your cost is going to depend on several different factors. Terrain, amount of mowing vs. weed eating, push mowing vs. riding, flower bed weeding, blowing debris? Obviously the more labor intensive, the more cost. I'd call a few of the services (the North Ga. News has a bunch of ads and numbers) and get some free estimates. I'd hate to tell you one thing and you find out something completely out of your budget.

Realtors?.... I haven't a clue, I'm sorry. The one we used is no longer selling. I do know that ReMax and Better Homes and Gardens are two of the largest firms in town and the ones I see the most of....

We will have to call lawn service for estimate. What are your opinions of Ellijay?

I'm glad to hear September is a good time, although it may end up being October before we lay eyes on the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'm disappointed we couldn't come sooner. I really wanted to experience the worst of the pollen and the worst of the heat/humidity. I also wanted to visit Blue Ridge at the height of the tourism season to see just how crowded it gets. I would hate to fall in love with the area and not be getting the full picture.

It's unfortunate but there is no peak Tourist season in Blue Ridge anymore. Its now on every weekend that Blue Ridge gets mobbed by ugh..Floridians and half of Cobb and Fulton county. It's getting worse every year it seems. The charm is slowly getting robbed and peoples attitudes are getting worse. My buddy whos a Realtor always says he's fine with selling the town out. He always says every mountain top that's getting filled with a home, so are his pockets. I can't blame him really. But really the best part about fall is when the Tourists point their cars south and just "Leaf".

What a shame but at least is just weekend tourists. There isn't many jobs with good incomes up in the mountains unless you are in medicine or maybe a realtor . The bulk of jobs are in the atlanta metro area. It seems to be that way everywhere anymore though-crowds and traffic. People trying to escape the big city for a weekend retreat but it takes away the peace and quiet of the residents there and probably disturbs the native wildlife as well. But at least its just weekends and with fall it turns over a new "leaf." Blue Ridge is such a lovely town ") But the tourists do help with the economy though on the weekends.
