Committed to Our Troops

EverGreen_Logo_4C-2For military families, life can be especially challenging when a loved one is serving our country overseas. Trying to keep everything running smoothly can seem overwhelming: working, taking care of the children, running errands, maintaining the household. But people want to lend a helping hand and make life a little easier during this difficult time.

Although caring for the lawn may seem like a minor detail, it can be a major hassle when a loved one is away from home.

Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation is proud to participate in Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program. 

The program provides free lawn maintenance to military families in which the major breadwinner is serving overseas. To date, the program has helped 8,000 military families through a national network of 2,200 volunteers. The program has received national attention and has even been featured on NBC Nightly News and the NBC Weekend Today Show.  Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation is aerating and over seeding the lawns of our deployed troops to help their families keep up with the lawn maintenance during their absence.

“At Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation, we support our troops,” says Dianne Flury, president, Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation. “That’s why we’re involved with Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops. While our men and women are overseas protecting us, we help by aerating and over seeding their lawns. We are proud to participate in the program. It’s a great opportunity to help others and give back to the community.”

Military families with a loved one who is deployed are welcome to participate in Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program., all you need to do is submit a form.   If a volunteer is available in your area, you’ll be notified. The GreenCare for Troops program is a voluntary effort that relies solely on the good will and generosity of businesses and individuals.

GreenCare for Troops is the signature program of Project EverGreen, whose mission is to preserve and enhance green space in our communities for today and future generations. The nationwide outreach program connects local green industry professionals with men and women who are away from home because they are serving our country in the military.  You can learn more about Project EverGreen

Water Saving Tips – Part 2

OK, so you’ve been turning off the water while brushing your teeth, good for you!  But, there are some more things you can do to conserve water.bg-fountain-comp

10 More Water Saving Tips for Your Home

  1. Got a newer dishwasher?  Cut back on rinsing as newer models clean much better than older models.
  2. Insulate your hot water pipes so that it doesn’t take as long for water to get hot at the tap.
  3. Score 2 points by dropping your tissue in the trash can instead of the toilet.
  4. Older toilet, installed before 1980?  Place a bottle filled with water in the tank.  This will reduce the amount of water used for each flush without interfering with its operation.
  5. Turn off the water while shaving and save more than 100 gallons a week.
  6. Whether at home or a hotel, consider reusing your towels instead of fresh daily towels.
  7. Reduce the number of loads of laundry you run by making sure all loads are full.
  8. Drop your ice?  Toss it in a plant vs, the sink.
  9. Compost instead of using your garbage disposal.  You can then use the compost for free fertilizer.
  10. Test your shower to see if it’s water efficient, place a 1-gallon bucket in the shower and if it fills in less than 20 seconds, install a water-efficient shower head.

Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation Proud to Honor 9/11 Victims and Heroes

Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation was honored to help make Anne Arundel County’s 9/11 Memorial a reality.  The memorial features twisted metal and rubble from the World Trade Center’s after their collapse in 2001.

Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation was proud to help make the memorial possible by providing the misting/irrigation system that represents the  dust and smoke that happened when the towers fell that frightful day.

“We hope that this memorial offers survivors a place to come and feel a bit closer to their loved ones,” remarked Dianne Flury, president of Atlantic Lighting and Irrigation.

The 9/11 Memorial is on Veteran’s Highway in front of the Anne Arundel County Police Station.  Private donations for the project exceeded $40,000 and local companies  who donated more than $80,000 in labor and material and Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation was honored to be asked to assist.

Did You See Us in The Capital?

A bittersweet article about the passing of our founder, Steven H. Flury and the arrival of Mary Sears to round out the company’s leadership.  After leaving her engineering job, Mary has taken the role of vice president and is leading the company along side her mother, Dianne Flury.

With Atlantic recently being voted as Annapolis’ Best Outdoor Lighting Contractor, these two ladies have proven that pulling together after such a loss can strengthen both bonds and businesses.

Thank you Annapolis for naming Atlantic Best Outdoor Lighting Contractor
