Whether you are building a new home in May Landing, NJ or on your own lot, you will be able to visit our design center and select the colors and finishes you want for your new home. Our design center offers a selection of the best materials, colors, and more that will fit the home you are designing.
Sometimes a design process can feel both exciting and overwhelming, with the kitchen being one area where a home buyer will focus a lot of their attention. So to help guide you in the right direction during the selection process for your new kitchen, here are a few quick tips.
Countertops are one of the most impactful selections that you can make in the kitchen. But before you jump one way or another, consider a few things first to help guide you toward the right material.
Every home, even a home in Mays Landing, NJ, can never have enough storage- especially when it comes to the kitchen. If you have the option to expand the size or amount of cabinets, then make the investment.
If you have several nice items to display, then be sure to add a glass front door to 1 or 2 of the cabinets. You can even add some lighting to help those pieces shine inside the cabinet. Consider upgrading to the next level of cabinet because it isn’t just about aesthetics, it’s about durability. Upgraded cabinets can withstand wear and tear better, and include solid drawers that are designed to endure heavy usage over time.
Consider again the amount of wear and tear that your kitchen will receive. There will be things that will fall or be accidentally dropped on the floor – from food to utensils. You also might be standing a lot in one area. Chairs and tables might be moved around a lot. So, select a floor that takes those things into consideration, flows well into the rest of your home and can endure how you foresee that space getting used the most in your new home in Mays Landing, NJ.
All homes built through Schaeffer Family Homes are built under a reputation backed up in writing. Come experience the different with Schaeffer.

The arrival of summer is here! Summer living at a home in Mays Landing, NJ stirs thoughts of long sunny days, beaches and pools, baseball games, gardening and barbecues, outdoor dining, and spending time with neighbors, family and friends. As we step outside this summer it will be even more special because of the ending to a long pandemic, so let’s make the most of this time spent outdoors.
If you are new to the area, or have recently moved into a new home, then perhaps you are looking to make the most of your outdoor living by adding or maintaining a garden area. We have some tips for your garden success.
Asses your lawn and garden area.
Take a few minutes to walk around, step back and view your landscape from different angles. Ask yourself these questions:
From here, create a list of your garden objectives or goals to tackle this summer after assessing your landscape and property needs.
Consider your gardening resources.
Once you have a list of what you want to accomplish, you need to determine how you can achieve your goal(s). By answering these questions below, it will help address the outdoor area(s) where you need assistance.
While a service provider might seem costly, consider and compare the details of what they provide. For example, if it is a lawncare service, do you own the type of equipment that can quickly mow, trim and edge your property? Will you have the time and resources required to perform regular maintenance of both the lawn and the equipment? When you consider all of the costs to own and maintain the equipment, the time required for consistent results, and the amount of work involved, then you might rethink the cost benefit for that lawncare service.
Get your hands dirty.
If you prefer not to hire an outside service, then you are probably someone who enjoys working in the yard. As a do-it-yourselfer, first research the type of lawn and know the different trees and shrubs you have. From that research, you can learn what and when are the recommended times to fertilize, prune, edge and cut. For example, many trees and shrubs require pruning in the late Spring. Some flowering shrubs such as roses, need to be pruned or deadheaded after each blooming period.
Remember that there are specialty fertilizers available for plants such as flowing shrubs, vegetables, and evergreens. Even if you don’t use an outside service, regular fertilizing is still needed to help these plants look and remain healthy. In addition, certain times of the year will bring out harmful insects and pests. Be sure to monitor your plants year-round, and plan to treat pests accordingly.
If you have a vegetable garden, consider adding some fencing to prevent native animals from eating the fruits of your labor. Watch the weather and have a plan to provide consistent irrigation or watering for those plants. Water is also essential for everything in your yard, and vegetation can be severely impacted by droughts long after the season has passed. Also, avoid summer lawn stress and adhere to the different mowing heights required for different types of grasses.
Whatever the direction you go, we hope that your long-anticipated summer barbecues, backyard bistros, and neighborhood/family get togethers are a success and your gardens are in full bloom.
