Welcome to Pumpkin Season

In the Lowcountry we enjoy fall the same as our neighbors to the north. However, while we snuggle into sweaters in the morning and pull out the flannels in the evenings, by afternoon we’re again reaching for t-shirts and tank tops as temps make their way back into the 80s and 90s. But we like it that way.

While it might seem odd to be checking out pumpkin patches for that perfect jack-o-lantern in shorts, we do have plenty of fall festivals and Halloween fun and, of course, pumpkin spice everything. We just aren’t enjoying fall in chilly rain and heavy sweaters. Who says you can’t have pumpkin spiced lattes on the beach? You can do that here and still take in a ghost tour in Beaufort.

Get away from the chill of northern autumn and head south. We may not have turning leaves but we do have hay rides, pumpkin patches, fall veggies in our farmers’ markets and flannel is still optional.

There is always something new and old to explore in the Lowcountry of coastal South Carolina. Within 30 minutes or less from the entrance to Hilton Head Lakes, you can visit the world class resort of Hilton Head Island, take a walking tour through Old Town Bluffton, see historic Beaufort, shop the farmer’s market in Hardeeville, or enjoy Savannah’s rich history and famous River Street.

There’s so much to explore and enjoy here.

Is it Time for a Move?

Do you need a change? Is it time to downsize your home? Or perhaps you need a change of scenery in a more hospitable climate. You would not be alone.

On average more than 40 million people move each year in the United States. It is estimated that 80% of those moves occur between April and September, this is referred to as peak season. During this time the demand for movers is very high, especially in June, July, and August, which tend to be the busiest months. Of course, three day weekends during these times are the most popular, such as Labor Day.

Of course there are challenges in moving during a holiday weekend. Fortunately, there are many resources available. Once you have everything sorted, packed, trucks/pods booked and driving routes planned it’s time to look up everything great about your new location.

But if you are contemplating moving for retirement or acquiring a vacation home and haven’t yet decided on a location consider Hilton Head Lakes. There’s so much to explore and enjoy here. Take the climate for example: the average daily high all year round is a wonderfully pleasant 74 degrees. In the winter the average high is 64 degrees. Imagine! While friends are shivering and scraping ice from their cares you could be enjoying your patio and a pleasant breeze.

No Room for a Vegetable Garden? Think Containers

Ah, late spring when gardeners all over the country are planning and/or planting their vegetable gardens in anticipation of the perfect tomato.

But what if you don’t have a large yard? If there isn’t enough room for even a four foot square plot or raised bed is that perfect tomato out of reach? Not at all. In fact, growing tomatoes in containers is one of the easiest yard-to-table things you can grow. Tomatoes enjoy large pots and will still need a cage for support but with good soil and sunlight that juicy, perfect beefsteak beauty can be yours.

Not that much of a tomato fan? Fear not! Peas are another great choice for early spring or even fall when the temperatures aren’t too intense. Other options include potatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, and even radishes. Grow you own salad right there on your sunny patio. Don’t have a sunny patio? Check out our floor plans online or schedule a visit to discover the sunny patios of our model homes here at Hilton Head Lakes.
