Young’s Landscape lends a hand to beautify Strawbridge Lake

Young’s staff is providing guidance, expertise and manpower for vegetation management.

Young’s Landscape (Young’s), a full service residential and commercial landscape management company headquartered in Southern New Jersey, is proud to support the Strawbridge Lake Beautification Committee (SLBC) as the group sets its sights on revitalizing the grandeur of Strawbridge Lake landscape in Moorestown.

Working in conjunction with the township, committee volunteers, local residents and area businesses, Young’s staff is providing guidance, expertise and manpower for vegetation management. Specifically, the firm is in the process of cutting back unwanted plants and invasive species. Young’s will follow the guidelines set forth by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), maintaining the water’s edge to avoid erosion and helping to create a clearer view of the lake from the residential side.

Originally founded by a group of Moorestown residents, SLBC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission it is to restore Strawbridge Lake to the beautiful town treasure that it once was through community involvement and fundraising events according to the group’s web site.

“When approached by George Gravenstine late last year, the answer was an easy one,” Mike Covert, Young’s operations manager, said. “We are big proponents of giving back and so many of our team grew up in the area. The lake is landmark not only for families in Moorestown but also those who live in surrounding towns. Living in Mount Laurel, I virtually drive by Strawbridge Lake daily.”

Young’s Landscape has been on the cutting edge of the landscaping industry for more than 25 years, serving the Delaware Valley to the Jersey Shore. From landscape to hardscape design and installation, lighting accents, water features, lawn care maintenance and synthetic putting greens and lawn surfaces, Young’s offers a comprehensive selection of lawn beautification products and services to create a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere for a client’s home and regional businesses.
