Long Beach, NYMarch 5, 2013 While the people of Long Beach continue to renovate their homes and restore some normalcy to their lives, a local community group has scheduled a forum for those looking to repair damage to their gardens, lawns and flower beds after the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. 
 
The storm’s wrath washed ocean water, sand and debris over streets and properties, leaving behind tainted lawns, downed trees and plantings. With spring right around the corner, many are asking:
