REAL ESTATE: IMPROVEMENTS READY FOR SUMMER? F act is the slow move from a wetter, colder spring than usual this year to a full summer swoon has left many a homeowner behind the normal house keeping curve. Most trees, flow- ers and lawns are just coming into prime bloom many pools are still mothballed, normal exterior maintenance has been put delayed by too many drizzly days. If like some you still need a hand to get ready for this season here’s a number of folks still ready to help. LAWN  GAMES MOW  ‘EM DOWN Now that you’ve created the perfect lawn its time to mow, trim and bag your green acres on a weekly basis. Fun, huh? For some, but if like most you’d prefer a day on the beach there’s one man to call. Mickey, as in MICKEYS LAWNSCAPES 631- 668-9120. Since 1983 they’ve managed lawns and gardens like few others on the East End. From sim- ple mowing to full-blown estate care they have the trained crews to get the job done punctually, prop- erly and carefully. And with the first green shoots beginning to grow, there’s no time like the present to schedule your first trim. POOLS  If you haven’t peeled off the cover and seen how the old swimming hole has weathered win- ter, now is the time!

HEAT/AC  The heart of your home’s infrastructure, make sure your A/C system is ready for summer, now. Central A/C systems should be checked for proper coolant levels and leaks, window units should tested and cleaned. Both could use new filters, a simple but effective way of keeping that cool breeze flowing even in the depths of summer. If you have any issues with buds budding, leaves growing, hedges blooming or flowers opening you are not alone.
