For about a year now, Jonathan's Landing has seen remarkable improvement in the landscaping throughout our community. This impressive new look is the work of the company employed by the POA last November. REVIVAL has been in business for a little over 3 years and is owned and operated by native Floridian, Rob Gresham, who is highly qualified and experienced. Rob is a local success story: He graduated from Jupiter High School and holds a degree in Environmental Horticulture from the University of Florida. He is state licensed in pest control, fertilization and tree management. His growing company currently serves 40 communities from Fort Lauderdale to Port St. Lucie, with most of them in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens. Revival's headquarters are nearby in Lake Park, where Rob is easily accessible. 
Revival's philosophy is simple: high-quality landscaping with emphasis on customer satisfaction. Their goal is to provide us with 'one-stop shopping': no need to hire separate tree trimmers, landscape designers, fertilizer and pest control experts. To this goal, J L is assigned an on-site manager who is on the grounds daily. His name is Whit Lacey and is available every day for consultation. Whit is a graduate of Auburn and holds a degree in Landscape Horticulture.
Because of Revival's impressive work ethic and the obvious improvements visible throughout JL, two of the villages have also hired them, and a few others are considering it.

Rob and Whit assure each village gets its own team of landscapers so that no one area is ever understaffed. The on-site team proudly boasts 3 brothers who work exclusively for the JL POA 5 days a week. Perhaps you have seen them trimming, gardening, cleaning up, and doing general detail work. They are Jose, Jesus and Ramon, hailing from Guatemala. All are hard workers and friendly. Do say hello! And continue to enjoy the enhanced aesthetic appeal of Jonathan's Landing.

Buy a $100 Legacy Brick to be placed in the entrance of South Rec and Butterfly Island and along the path in between. The money from the brick sales will be used to help keep Butterfly Island flourishing.

Please remember that all hurricane shutters must be removed or opened. Thank you.
Giving Hearts that are making a difference.
