NEW TO AUSTIN? HERE’S SOME INSIGHT ABOUT YOUR NEW HOME TOWN

Posted On: 06/30/2015

With all of the growth of our region, we’re seeing a wonderful new addition to our neighborhood apartments at Juniper Springs in Austin.  And as your new hosts, we thought it might be nice to give you a few tips about the history of your new home town.  We’ll start with a little history …
 
It all started back in 1830 just after our state won its independence from Mexico.  At that point, we needed a home base to call our capital.  History notes that a group of individuals were appointed to take a poll and the winner was … Austin, which is named after a prominent politician of that time: Stephen F. Austin.
 
There was a little hitch in the get-along when Sam Houston showed up on the scene and moved our administration offices to his namesake city, yet other than that, we’ve been Austin for over 150 years and counting.
 
Since then we’ve continued to thrive and thanks to all of the great benefits that our city offers, we’ve claimed the title of the Live Music Capital of the World and site of the University of Texas – which has many accolades to add to our fine community.

Container Gardening Is A Hot Trend This Summer!

Posted On: 04/23/2015

WHY CONTAINER GARDENS ARE A HOT TREND IN TEXAS THIS SUMMER


Twenty two years ago, Save the Water Day (every year on March 22) was created to develop a world-wide awareness of our precious water resource.  With summer around the corner, we’re going to use this Blog to share information about the critical stages of our water availability … and what part you can play to conserve water while you still enjoy some fresh summer color on your porch and patio at your Juniper Springs apartment in Austin, Texas.


To get you jump started on your garden, we found an article for some simple container garden ideas for this summer … while you save water at the same time.    For some great ideas, just click here.


While you are enjoying the color, we appreciate your efforts to conserve water for all the right reasons. Here are some important highlights:

 

  • It takes approximately 33 ounces of water to create a single sheet of paper; it takes about the same amount of water to irrigate one calorie worth of food.


  • While 70% of our earth is blanketed with water, only about 3% is fresh water, and of that fresh water, only about 25% is accessible.


  • if you’re still following, that means only .75% of the world’s water is fresh and accessible for use.


  • Additionally, even in places where water may not be physically scarce by nature, scarcity is becoming a threat as a result of overuse or over management.


  • It is estimated that by 2025, 67% of the world’s population may face water shortages and here in the west, it’s at a critical stage.


  • In graphic terms, that means the equivalent of nearly 15 United States populations may face water shortages and California and Nevada are near the top of the list.


We thank you in advance for doing your part to conserve water on a daily basis.
