Wit h a new season, a new look is often in order.

In addition, spring offers an opportunity to be outside enjoying the numerous activities and events the Princeton area has to offer.

pruning of plants in spring is recommended for some plants, but which plants and how is what you need to know. As an example, roses are typically pruned in early spring — how to do it properly is an art!” Careful Preparation Nick Pirone, owner of Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping in Pennington also points out the importance of careful preparation and the need for a thorough cleanup of the grounds before the grass is cut. “You want to remove all the debris left over from the winter. Pick up sticks, and rake or blow out old leaves from planting beds and shrubbery. While leaves are good compost for your lawn when cut up, they do inhibit your lawn from proper growth when left in heavy piles. “Cutting Edge provides design and installation of new landscapes, weekly property management, shrub and

tree pruning, mulching, and more. Once your beds are cleaned out, it is important to add a two-inch layer of triple ground root mulch to all your planting areas. This helps with weed control, retains moisture for the plantings, and looks great. “Spring is a great time to plant shrubs, flowering perennials, and trees,” continues Mr. Pirone. “Bulbs are planted in the fall along with the re-seeding of your lawn. While you can seed now, it is difficult to keep new grass established during the heat of the summer. “When we design and install new landscapes, we take many factors into consideration. Especially working in and around Princeton, deer resistance is at the top of the list. Sunlight conditions and proximity to foundations or overhead wires are also important when creating layouts. Perennials, such as Double Knockout roses, Nepeta, St. Johns Wor t, and Quickfire Hydrangea Continued on Next Page 26

add great splashes of color while offering no temptation to deer.” Mr. Pirone is proud that his family has a long history of service in the Princeton area. “My grandfather Felix Pirone and my father Bert Pirone had one of the largest paving contracting businesses in Princeton for the past four decades. Now I continue to serve the area with my landscaping and lawn business. Whether the homeowner is looking for an update to the existing landscape or a total overhaul, we are happy to handle it all. We have extensive plant knowledge, which helps us to help you. We know what to plant and where!” Keeping the kids occupied and happy in the summer is important and at times, challenging. Whether away at camp or home with daily activities, they need to be motivated and engaged. Internet Security Digital Doc, the tech repair company in Princeton North Shopping Center, with a new Princeton Tiger Tech division on Nassau Street, has some great opportunities for the younger set, notes marketing manager Mercedes Samuels. “ We w i l l b e r u n n i n g workshops throughout the neighborhood to teach the public (specifically kids and parents) about phone maintenance. We also host workshops about internet security at the local libraries and recreation centers. “In addition, we offer a number of repair services

for iPhones, Galaxy’s, iPads, and more. Along with repairing items, we sell refurbished products. You can upgrade your broken device by buying our renovated tech items, including laptops, ipads, and iphones. We also offer pre-paid plans and wireless services provided by H20. We are Princeton Tigers by nature, and try to stay as involved in the community as possible. Be sure to subscribe to our email for future updates and event listings. pr inceton @ digitaldoc.com.” Now that spring is really here, you may also want to focus on a new you! Toning up the “contours” for the beach or the legs for the tennis court is certainly good advice and available at the many fitness centers in town. Of course, for face, hair, and body pampering, hair salons and spas are in abundance. Salon Azzurro in Rocky Hill specializes in providing the perfect style, cut, and color for its clients. As owners David and Joe Maccarone point out, “Spring always brings change. We are busy doing balayage and adding highlights. Clients are also prepping for conquering humidity’s effect on hair, and that’s where keratin treatments are both necessary and extremely popular. “Keratin treatments smooth the cuticle layer of hair and battle against frizz and ‘fly aways’ in straight, wavy or curly hair. A great keratin treatment does not imply stick straight hair; it does, however, imply much shinier, smoother hair in whatever finished look a client prefers — straight,

wavy, or curly. A capable, educated stylist can create whatever results the client wants, and we have different types for various kinds of hair and for a variety of finished looks.” New Styles In addition, report David and Joe Maccarone, new styles are always popular in spring. “This year, hair with movement is the trend, with beach and body waves gaining weekly in popularity. This look is created with a type of perm using larger size rods.” Easy maintenance is another favorite option, they add. “Clients are looking for ‘wash and wear’ hair, and this, too, contributes to the popularity of beach and body waves.” Beata Giermasinska, owner of Amber Spa in Pennington, notes that spring and summer are the busiest times in the the beauty industry. “Not only do people emerge from the winter months with dry and dull skin and desperate for help, but also wedding, prom, sandal, and bathing suit season brings in new clients. “Our brides and promgoers love lash and hair extensions, spray tanning, professional make-up, and our favorite red carpet treatment: Intraceutical Oxygen Infusion. “With lower UV levels, spring is a great time for facial rejuvenation,” adds Ms. Giermasinska. “A series of microdermabrasion or facial peels will significantly improve your skin before summer. “Also very popular in the spring is Lipomassage, also

CASINO NIGHT FOR CORNER HOUSE: Corner House Foundation Board and community members recently gathered at CoolVines in Princeton to celebrate Elaine Calcote Britt, a recipient of the Marie Mathews Award, who will be honored at the Corner House Foundation’s third Casino Night, “It’s Vegas,” on Friday, April 21 at the Mercer Boathouse. The night will feature dinner, cocktails, table games, live entertainment, and a live and silent auction. Shown here are benefit co-chairs and board members Elizabeth Wasch and Mandy Triolo, with board president Geniva Martin in the center. This event is looking for sponsors for its program and tables. The money raised will go to support substance abuse and leadership programs for Corner House. known as Endermologie. It is the first treatment scientifically tested and clinically proven to reduce cellulite, rid your body of diet- and exercise-resistant fat, and tighten and tone loose, sagging skin. Clients use this treatment to prepare for the upcoming swimsuit season.” Client’s Needs Ms. Giermasinska adds that a variety of massages and body treatments are available, as are many types of facials customized to the client’s needs. “We offer specialty facial treatments

for aging skin, including Environ peels, Circadia Switch, Microder mabrasion, and Intraceutical Oxygen treatment. “For acne prone skin we have deep pore facials and facial peels; also peels and whitening treatments for hyper pigmented skin, and oxygen treatments for rosacea clients, among many other options. We are also the only authorized facility in the extended Princeton area to offer the Dr. Hauschka Holistic Facial, aimed at restoring balance and harmony to the skin.” Hair and nail ser v ices

are also available at Amber Spa, with highlights and hair mask treatments especially favored for spring. “Our nail services are very popular in spring, and we all love nice fresh color and professional treatment on our toes and fingers!” says Ms. Giermasinska. “Favorite colors for the season are soft and feminine pinks, peach, pastels, moss green, and blue.” And so spring is here and the time is now!
