Meredith in 2020 is a Beautiful Community Both for the Way it is Changing and for the Ways it hasn't Changed.

Meredith, New Hampshire has increasing desirability as a lakeside resort town. No doubt, as we adapt to the guidelines for the 2020 pandemic, larger numbers of people will flock to Meredith.  

Our New Hampshire lakes and our extensive shoreline are inviting. The abundant space of our rural areas has never been quite as appealing as it is now.  We will find new ways to enjoy outdoor activities and loved ones while social distancing, and protecting our natural environment.

Those of us who have been in Meredith or the abutting towns for decades, will continue to love the Lakes Region as a tightly knit, year round community. Many of its best qualities remain unchanged.

Meredith, New Hamphire's town docks are in Meredith Bay, which is featured in this sunrise video.  Clients of mine who buy property in the town of Meredith continue to remark that they've never had a real estate transaction where everyone involved was so nice, which says a great deal about our community. With many quaint shops, the friendliness of the community on main street remains intact. Some shops, such as Lakes Region Nutrition Center, offer curbside delivery and are open on limited days.  

The Meredith Marina is busy putting boats in the water for it clients. And, of course, their service is known to be excellent. If you have questions about how gas fill-ups will work this summer, you can call the Meredith Marina and ask for Matt O'Neil at 603.279.7921.

    Tips from Dan Coons of ILEX Wetlands Consultants on Helping the Wild Pollinators Crucial to our Food Chain.

    It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, although additionally by other insects, birds and bats.  

    In the building boom we are currently seeing, and likely to see more of with the low mortgage rates, it is also important to consider the environment that is altered during the construction process.

    Below this photo are some tips from Dan Coons of ILEX Wetlands Consultants on creating a bee friendly environment.

    For the general do-it-yourself gardener, this will probably help:

    A little more specific info on plants to consider was found below

    We have shrubs around our house that different species of bees just love. Azaleas and rhododendrons are frequented by bumblebees, the bridalwreath is another favorite, roses, milkweed. Anything with flowers, and the more colors the better. Also, species that bloom at different times of the year.

    If you'd like to hire a consultant to help you understand how to work with your land and wetlands, there are many local experts in our community.  For wetlands advice and tree mapping especially, please contact Dan Coons at: Dan.Coons@ILEXwetlands.com 603.520.8533 P.O, Box 2185 Wolfeboro NH, 03894.

    While it is still winter, it feels as though a Happy Spring is right around the corner.  Enjoy the beautiful outdoors!
