Spotlight on the Jerry E. Clegg Botanic Gardens

East of Lafayette, IN, there are some hilly, windy roads, taking you near the Wildcat Creek. When you drive out of town on Creasy Dr., within less than a mile, there are two beautiful parks along the Wildcat Creek. Just after crossing I-65, you’ll come to a fork in the road. One way takes you up hill to the beautiful Clegg Botanic Gardens, and the other takes you to the Wildcat Creek Park. Both are special in their own way, but today, we want to introduce you to The Botanic Garden and everything it has to offer!

On April 18, 1965 the Clegg family opened the property to the public…Jim Peterson served as property steward of Clegg Memorial Garden beginning in 1966.  Later he stepped into the role of Treasurer for the Clegg Memorial Garden Board of Directors. Jim remained with Clegg Garden, living on site and tending the property, until the management transferred from Clegg Memorial Garden to NICHES Land Trust in 2014, nearly 30 years of dedicated service to the Clegg Memorial Garden.The Clegg cottage, once country retreat, then private home for the property manager, now houses NICHES Land Trust administrative offices. NICHES modernized the building and transitioned the...

The Spring Market is in full swing, and we here, at the Romanski Group, are down to help you think about all the major and minor needs you have for prepping your home for sale. Here’s a small checklist for you to go over before putting your house on the market! HGTV’s list inspired this post. You can find that article here! Improve your landscaping and clean the exterior. This is huge! First impressions make or break it for a lot of people, so go ahead and spruce this up first and foremost. A power wash to the siding, mulch, clean gutters, sticks picked up, and the yard mowed are just a few ideas to get you started!Make Repairs! A large investment, such as into a home, seems like less of a tackle job and more joyful when there aren’t 100 things they need to fix before moving in. Making repairs (both major and minor) gives potential buyers the ability to visualize themselves in the home, not focusing on all the repairs they need to make!Make the Front Door Inviting/Buy a welcome mat. This is so true! Invite potential buyers in! A fresh coat of paint on the door and maybe new numbers or a new mailbox will keep people expectant for what’s to come.Remove Clutter and depersonalize/Organize closets and drawers. Potential Buyers are about to be all up in your business. They’re peaking in every nook and cranny. You will too when you go on the hunt for your new home! It’s totally a natural part of the process.
