College Town

Landscaping Tips

by Pat Wattam

As people spend more and more time in their backyards with their backyard kitchens, pools, etc, not to mention front load garages, we are seeing more and more people spending less money on their front yard and more on their back.  While this makes some sense - you see your backyard typically for longer periods of time that the front - which you basically see when you drive in, but the front yard does make a statement about your house.  And when your house is for sale, this is particularly important.  

So, if your house is for sale, we need color in the front - color to attract people and get their attention. Red is always eye catching, as are other bright colors.  You need to pack the color together so that it makes a statement

.

Note how the yellow flowers are bunched together so they make a statement - the bright colored azaleas.  This draws a lot of attention to the front of the house with not a lot of expense.

Not what a statement the yellow flowers make when bunched up. 

So, when thinking about making a statement in the front yard, you don't have to spend a lot of money, but carefully choose color and pack it in tightly!

Capital Heights

by Bill Arey

When developed in 1918 by lumberman and real estate developer Charles Roseman, Capital Heights subdivision was considered “out in the country”. In one of the city’s oldest subdivisions, an influx of young families give life to old homes. Through a proactive, strong civic association formed in 1992, the turnabout has brought an increase in property values and decrease in crime.

The Highland Cemetery

by Bill Arey

The Highland Cemetery is the final resting place for two veterans of the Revolutionary War as well as numerous veterans of the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Highland Cemetery was virtually abandonded after the Civil War as families preferred the newer, larger cemeteries closer to downtown Baton Rouge. The gates to the cemetery are just steps from the College Town Neighborhood Park. A very interesting piece of Baton Rouge's past in a beautiful setting.

The Garden District

by Bill Arey

The historic Garden District has charm and character, with a cosmopolitan
blend of residents and architectural styles. Composed of subdivisions Roseland
Terrace (founded in 1911), Drehr Place (1919) and Kleinert Terrace (1925), the
district attracts those who do not want to be like everyone else.
