Spring Care Tips

Date: March 18, 2024

As the weather warms up and the days get longer, it's time to start thinking about spring lawn care.

Here are a few tips to help you get your lawn off to a great start this season:

Start by raking up any leaves or debris that have accumulated over the winter. This will help your lawn to breathe and promote new growth.

Once your flower bed is clear, apply a layer of fresh mulch. This will help to keep the soil moist and protect the roots of your plants.

Its time to fertilize your lawn, a good rule of thumb is to apply 1 pound of fertilizer per 1,000 sqft of lawn.

Finally, be sure to water your lawn regularly. Deep, infrequent watering is best for promoting deep root growth.

With the spring season fast approaching, we would like to share a few kind reminders and updates to ensure a pleasant and thriving community.

    Lawn Maintenance and House Repairs:
      Embrace the warmer weather by focusing on lawn upkeep and house repairs. A well-maintained community enhances everyone's living experience, fostering a sense of pride in our shared spaces. Reminder, an Architectural Control Committee (ACC) Application and Approval is required prior to any exterior modification. ACC Applications may be found online on your Association website.
    Water Conservation During Rainy Season:
      While appreciating the benefits of the rainy season, let's be mindful of water conservation. Adjust irrigation systems to align with natural rainfall, contributing to the collective effort to preserve our water resources. Regular preventative maintenance may be necessary on your irrigation system, please check with your lawn care provider to perform system checks &/or repairs on your system and rain & freeze sensors for optimum water conservation efforts.
    General Spring-Cleaning Tips:
      Declutter and organize living spaces.
        Clean and inspect gutters for debris.
        Schedule HVAC system maintenance.
        Check and clean outdoor furniture.
        Donate items you no longer need.
        Changing batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
