It’s Gardening Season at The Springs of Mill Lakes.
For gardeners, there’s nothing like the feeling of the warm spring sun on your back as you dig. We’re excited to announce that planting season is officially under way at The Springs of Mill Lakes! The community’s inaugural garden—a real beauty by the way—was planted by homeowners Terri and Richard Lovelace, now and forever known as Mr. and Mrs. Green Thumb Lovelace.
Terri and Richard planted their 5’ x 17’ raised bed—one of 23 community garden plots available to residents of The Springs of Mill Lakes—with tomatoes, of course. They also put in zucchini, crook neck squash, strawberries, watermelons, green onions, chives and cabbage.
The Lovelaces moved into the community last August and couldn’t be happier. Says Terri, “We were excited to know we’d have the opportunity to garden at The Springs of Mill Lakes. We love everything—the convenience, working out at the clubhouse and knowing we don’t have to spend all of our free time working in the yard, unless we want to!”
The Springs of Mill Lakes offers a 3-bedroom cottage design or a spacious 4-bedroom plan with private guest suite. All models feature the latest in-home security systems, entertaining kitchens and relaxing Southern porches.
Whether you’re a master gardener or would rather watch others play in the dirt, fun and friendship await you at The Springs of Mill Lakes. The community is located near historic Old town Opelika and is convenient to Auburn and the Auburn University campus. Built in nature’s back yard, The Springs of Mill Lakes occupies an 80-acre parcel including a wildlife sanctuary. True to our name, we have two large lakes, waterfalls, creeks and trails. Paddle, hike, or just relax on a bench and take it all in.
Summertime means lazy days by the zero-entry crystal pool, built on a beautiful bluff overlooking the lakes. At the lively Owl’s Roost, our 10,000-square-foot clubhouse and fitness center, there’s always a class, club or celebration under way.
Still thinking about what to plant this year? The Springs of Mill Lakes developer Allen Harris, himself a seasoned gardener, offers this pro tip. “Try radishes, beets, broccoli and lettuces around the perimeter of the beds. They don’t take up room, and they’re easy to grow!”
