Pond Dredging: Is Pond Restoration Important

... well as the slope by taking out extra sediments which have settled after the soil had eroded. Without this, you will have a pond that does not have a slope to it and all the water will go straight down the edge and this can lead to more erosion, but at a much faster pace.

Something else to consider with the dredging is it will help get rid of any of the plants that could be building up in your pond and create problems. Not all types ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bibi's Garden Bed and Breakfast Brooklyn

    My favorite place to come home to

    from

    This lovely restored house in a safe, tree-lined neighborhood has become my preferred destination when visiting New York, where I lived for many years. Bibi, Harry, and Stephanie are warm and accommodating hosts, the rooms are immaculate and quiet, the breakfasts are generous and delicious, and the location ideal--with ample street parking and the subway to Manhattan a five minute walk away. Far better than staying with relatives!

    Lovely!

    from

    bibisgarden is a nice place to stay!

    every morning bibi serves something delicious for breakfast and our room was very comfortable. whenever you want, bibi helps you to get along and knows many extraordinary places to go to.

    highly recommended!

    Feel at home be yourself at Bibi's Garden B&B ,Brooklyn

    from

    The La Cruz-Isaac family Angelo & Marilyn wanted to visit New York and was recommended by a good friend to stay at Bibi's Garden Bed & Breakfast in Brooklyn it turned out to be the best 10 days of our vacation.

    Very good hostesses Mrs Bibi and her Husband Mr Harry, they had the touch of like visiting a beautiful Caribbean island like our native island of Curacao good breakfast hospitality the works. The place itself was well furnished, very clean and tidy.

    Their daughter Stephanie was also a very good hostess and we think the business will be in good hands in the future.

    So I recommend anyone visiting New York to go and stay there it is near a subway Avenue H where the line Q passes with connections to everywhere in the State of New York. Where you can go on sight seeing, relax, explore history, form your own opinion in order to better your future.

    Pleasant, Convenient Resting Place

    from

    My son, mother, and I stayed at Bibi's Garden from 17 June to 24 June 2006. (I had stayed there for a 3-day week-end two years ago). Bibi and Harry are very friendly and hospitable. The accommodations are clean, quiet, spacious and beautifully furnished. The street they live on is a quiet leafy street. One street over is Coney Island Boulevard which has restaurants, stores, and bus connections. The neighborhood is very ethnically diverse. We ate one night at a Russian Restuarant--even the check was itemized in Russian. Another night we ate at a Pakastani Restuarant. The subway stop on the Q-Line at H-Avenue is about a 5-minute walk (there's a laundry there that's open from 7 am till 8 pm in case you want to drop of laundry and pick it up later). One night we returned from Manhattan at 1:30 a.m. and there was a police officer patroling H-Avenue between the subway stop and Bibi's Street (Westminster Road) though we would have felt very safe even if he hadn't been there. Bibi's Garden is convenient to visiting Manhattan and all of Brooklyn. We had a great time and feel that Bibi and Harry are real friends. By the way, Harry drives a bus for the Metropolitan Transit Authority so he can tell you the best way to get anywhere in New York (and which neighborhoods to stay out of). I highly recomend Bibi's Garden. - Dan Lubben

    Brooklyn: Bibis's garden B.&B. "Visit NYC, but stay at Bibi's garden"

    date: 18 giugno 2006

    Abbiamo scelto una formula vincente: visitare NYC, ma dormire a Brooklyn. Ricerca facile su Google, mailing con risposte immediate e chiare. Dopo, all'arrivo, una catena di sorprese:1) la sistemazione da Bibi's Garden Bed and Breakfast (30 min. dal JFK) una casa pulitissima, bella, piena di fiori e di piante, con padroni di casa favolosi e generosi di consigli; 2) stazione Q train a 300 metri da casa: 20 minuti a Canal Street Midtown, treni sicuri, puliti, ogni 5 minuti. 3) gli Heights davanti Manhattan al tramonto, Park Slope, The Botanical Garden a Prospect Park.

    Alla sera in treno stanchi dopo aver visitato le bellezze di NYC, eravamo contenti di arrivare alla casa di Bibi e Harry, cosė tranquilla e riposante.

    Nice meetingpoint

    from

    Bibi's Garden is a nice surprice for us coming from Stockholm to New York. We feel warmly welcomed by Bibi and Harry. At breakfast, which is also very good, we are meeting interesting people from different places and get some really good advices from Bibi on what to do and where to go in Manhattan. This is a much nicer way to stay than in a hotel.

    Great for Family

    from

    I and my family had a wonderful stay at your lovely B&B. Breakfast was awesome, and the place was very clean. Directions to and from bibi's was very helpful. I will recommend your B&B to all of my colleagues and friends, and will certainly be back at your lovely B&B.

    Unethical unpredictable

    from

    I reserved a room for two nights and couldn't travel because I had strep throat. I of course could not anticipate this and called the morning I was to arrive, to ask if I could cancel. The owner spoke with me and I purposefully asked if it was okay to cancel and if I would have to pay. She said "No, it's okay." I asked if I could rebook for the days to which I planned to postpone my trip. She told me to call in a few days to see if someone cancelled. We concluded our phone call, said goodbye, and hung up. Later that day I found a message on my voice mail from her, saying I cannot do this (cancel) without a week's notice (I had just booked the reservation 8 days before), and that she was charging my credit card for the full amount. I think this is unethical because she told me it was okay and she wouldn't charge my card, when I spoke to her, then called back and revoked this agreement. I was ill and could not anticipate my change of plans.

    Stay Away -- hostile landlady!!

    from

    We stayed at Bibi's for four days and will never return, mainly due to the inexcuseable, inexplicable rudeness of the landlady.

    The good news: it's reasonably priced (but hang on to your price quote, they tried to charge us more when we got there), it's in a relatively decent area and the house is clean. There are three floors; the owners live on the bottom and the upper two are outfitted like family apartments - several bedrooms, a living room and a dining room on each floor.

    Unfortunately, you're apparently not allowed to use the common areas, the TV, or the computer (you can pay $5 for the latter, but one of the owners will watch over your shoulder the entire time). When there was a problem with the television, we were accused of causing it. We were chastised for plugging in a lamp over the dining room table, for taking food back for a small dinner upstairs in the dining room, for using the FAN IN OUR ROOM.

    Breakfast isn't worth getting up for. Soggy toast, a banana or melon cubes, perhaps a hard boiled egg or some Cheerios. BUT, the one day we didn't make it down to breakfast, we were scolded for failing to warn the owner of our absence through a message on the pad in the landing, something she never mentioned we should do.

    We had to move our things into a separate room the second night due to booking complications (I made a reservation more than three months in advance). There was no turnover service. The toilets were problematic - something we were also accused of causing.

    The minor problems - the TV, internet, toilet and the like - would have been fine with me were the hostess not increasingly rude to us. My mother has traveled to bed and breakfasts all over the world, and she said she's never been treated so rudely. Ultimately, I get the impression that the owners went into this business to make money, but they are definitely NOT cut out for the hospitality industry.

    When a person opens their home to guests who pay for the privilege of staying there, it seems counterproductive to act constantly annoyed and hostile to guests' presence. I recommend that, if you're staying in Brooklyn, find somewhere else - anywhere else. Stay far away from this establishment.

    Clean and quiet

    from

    Had a nice stay at this B & B in Brooklyn. This was our first trip to NYC and decided to stay in Brooklyn because the prices were more reasonable than Manhattan. The parking on the street was easy and free. The subway was three blocks from the house and was a 20 to 25 min. ride into Manhattan. The home is well maintained, clean and comfortable. There were three guests rooms sharing our bathroom but it was fine. The house was hot but we had an air conditioner in our room which kept us comfortable. The guests were served a hot breakfast (no choices on food items, but everything was good) each morning at 8:30 in the dining room. The living room was beautiful but the door was kept closed as if to keep guests out except at breakfast time. The guests did have access to a separate kitchen upstairs which had a micro and fridge and table. The front porch was comfortable and overlooked a small pretty garden in the front yard. The house and guests were all very quiet. Would recommend this place to others. They wanted $5 an hour for internet access, which I thought should just be included in the price.
