Why the Villages® Community Is the Perfect Place to Retire!

There comes a time in everyone's life when it is time to hang up the briefcase or work boots in exchange for a more relaxing and carefree living. You've worked your whole life, and now you deserve to live life the way you have always wanted, where you have always wanted.

So what makes The Villages® Community the perfect place to retire?

Location - Most people dream of leaving the cold behind and retiring to a more tropical environment, a place to feel the warm breeze and watch the palm trees sway. Moving to Key West or a tropical island isn't a good idea for many retirees because they still want to have easy access to their families or make it easy for them to visit them. That why The Villages® Community is the perfect location to retire! It is a paradise in a very convenient location in Central Florida! You still get the beaches, warm weather, and a relaxing atmosphere without sacrificing being with your friends and family.

Active Lifestyle - Being retired doesn't mean you want to stop living life! The opposite is true. Now that you have more time on your hands, you can finally do all the things you never had time to do when you were younger. The Villages® community has something for everybody; golfing, tennis, pickleball, painting classes, beautiful swimming pools, and everything to do under the Sun, you could imagine.

Entertainment - There is never a dull moment for a Village resident with multiple town squares providing unique live entertainment every night! Each square has plenty of seating and dance space as you sip cocktails, make new friends, and boogie the night away. Or you can visit the vast array of shops and eateries located all around the area.

Golf cart access - Leave your car in the garage and take a breezy ride to the store or lunch in your golf cart. Just about everywhere in The Villages® Community is easy to get to with the golf cart paths.

Clean and beautiful! - The Villages® Community is a mesmerizing, pristine oasis where they take great pride in keeping up the landscaping with lush tropical foliage and colorful flowers. The gorgeous architecture, water features, clean streets, and sidewalks remind you that you are indeed in paradise.

The Villages® Community is sometimes called Disney World for retirees because it is clean and beautiful, and there is so much fun to be had. Speaking of Disney World, that is an extra perk of living here, all of the theme parks are just an hour away, and the beaches are just a little less than 2 hours away in each direction. It is the perfect location to start a new and exciting life!

We had the rock and plants replaced in the front and back yard of our courtyard villa. We also had lighting updated in the back and curbing installed around the flower beds. We added some sod to the front yard. Pros: Steve listened to what we wanted. He worked to make it easier for our dog to walk off the landing from our birdcage. It is refreshing to have someone listen and try to understand what you are envisioning. Dan obviously knows a lot about plants and was very enthusiastic about what we were receiving. He chose various color flowers and explained how to care for everything. The entire team working with the plants seemed to get along well and worked very hard. They were very excited to show us the plants and the slope they made for our dog. The curbing team did a good job. We have seen curbing at other homes that is not finished off well. The man who did our curbing was very careful and made everything look good on the edges. We did not realize that was such a labor intensive job. He did great! Initially everyone worked with me to accommodate my work schedule—arranging the first estimate in the evening and bringing plants over on the weekend for me to view. The plants we received seemed in good condition and were all blooming immediately. We are happy with the lights that were installed, providing better lighting in our back yard. Cons: Rocks were placed over one of the water meter boxes in the flower bed, and we had to locate it and dig it out ourselves. The sod was placed over a sprinkler head in the back yard, and we had to dig that out. When I cut the sod from over the sprinkler, we were left with a deep hole where our small dog walks out on the grass. We did not like some of the sod, so we had to go out and buy our own sod and replace it. The bulk of the work was done the day after heavy rains. So the back yard was a muddy mess for over a week. We had to go out and pull up dried mud off the grass days after the installation. Steve came back for the payment before I came home from work. I was the person who signed the contract, but I had not seen the final product when he came to the house asking for payment. I felt that they cared more about how the front yard looked. If the back yard was not fenced, perhaps they would have done a better job finishing up and cleaning the wall. We have had to clean much of it ourselves. The landing outside our birdcage was left covered in mud. This is where we take the dog out into the yard. Since our dog is very important to us, having the backyard be so muddy made it very inconvenient. Pieces of grass and debris got stuck in her fur for at least a week every time she went in the yard. The back yard is the area where we focus our attention and is the most important to us. The irrigation system was left basically the same, but plants were not necessarily placed where they would get the best water coverage. The planting, irrigation and curbing made original drainage issues into more of a problem in the back yard. Steve had told us when he gave us the quote that we were very particular about what we want in our yard. Others having work done might have been more satisfied. Now that we have finished cleaning up and replacing sod we did not like, we are starting to enjoy the yard more. Overall, Mansfield Landscaping did a good job.

In mid-March of 2021, Mansfield Landscaping transformed the front of my yard from an overgrown eyesore to a beautiful, yet simple and relatively carefree landscape. All the overgrown bushes and the (in my opinion) ugly, dark-colored rock were removed from the existing beds. The beds were reduced in size, and bordered with attractive lightly-colored walls. The dark landscape rock was removed and replaced with eye-catching river rock. New plantings, highlighted by two Japanese Blueberry bushes and two fan palms, were added to complete the beds portion of the project. The entire weed-filled front lawn was then removed and replaced with new sod. Every person I dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and patient in explaining the steps I needed to take to ensure my satisfaction with the completed project. I am so pleased the the work done that I plan on having the back of my property transformed by Mansfield Landscaping in the near future. This company gets my highest recommendation.

They designed and implemented a complete overhaul of our landscaping. Removed 3 trees, added a palm and several smaller features along with walls and rock everywhere. Installation was quick and done very well. Great people to work with.

I wish I could give them a million stars instead of 5! From our initial consultation to the finish of our installation, we have been very happy. Everyone was on time, very professional and didn't mind answering our endless questions about the future care of our trees and plants. Everyone was knowledgeable and courteous. Our palm trees and other plants are healthy, nicely matured and beautiful. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them to anyone needing landscaping.

From the Jennings'. Let's start with Steve. It was so refreshing to deal with the owner and mannerisms of a person who really understands customer service. Steve was patient, good listener, honest, no hidden agendas, extremely knowledgeable, creative thinking that blended with our landscaping vision. Our vision by-the-way only made sense to my wife and I. How Steve could interpret what was were saying is beyond me. His suggestions were perfect and he provided an estimate during this initial visit. We gladly signed up for the work and Steve is so confident in his team that he did not require any money down. A few weeks later, the crew arrived on time to begin the two day installation. These guys had great personalities, very friendly, but also professional. Very hard workers and artistic too. Our bed designs, the brick work, placement of plant and trees etc., like a viewing a Bob Ross painting. Constant communication during the process, with efforts on pleasing my wife and I. The crew kept the job site neat and organized and each day ensured our lot was back in order and clean. If Mansfield Landscaping's website doesn't grab you, Steve and his personality will and it's all topped off with the crew. Great Experience. Thanks much, we appreciate you.

So glad we chose Mansfield for our landscaping job! Steve listened to what we had in mind and made several suggestions before starting. His crew worked fast and efficiently to build a seating area, wall, and flower beds all in the front and a patio in the back yard. We’ve had several compliments.

Our experience with Steve Mansfield was nothing but perfect from the beginning to the end of the project. Steve had so many good ideas for the design of our project. He answered all of our questions and worked with us on our ideas. The project started on time, and finished when promised. The crew was professional and kept us informed on every step of the work. The palm tree and other plants provided were very healthy and looked good. We have had so many complements about the work. We very highly recommend Steve Mansfield/Landscaping for any project. I can say that Steve Mansfield is an honest contractor. Do yourself a favor and give him a call!!
