Late May is a good time to apply an application of Weed & Feed. If you don’t have too much of a weed population, you can do a spot application of Weed-B-Gone spray with either a small hand sprayer, an old Windex spray bottle, or a tank sprayer. Buying Weed-B-Gone Concentrate & mixing your own is very economical & the can will last for many years. A general-purpose high nitrogen fertilizer could be used along with the spray.
If you have any dry brown or yellow patches, or spots that have been dug up, you have grubs! The crows and/or skunks are digging it up looking for a grub dinner! A single application of a season long grub killer/inhibitor applied now is a lot less expensive than re-seeding your lawn. If done every year, you have the piece of mind knowing you won’t have a grub problem.
One way of significantly reducing or eliminating “pet stains” on your lawn is to treat the lawn with granulated lime. You can buy this by the 60lb bag for around $3.00 a bag. Use liberally, Spence uses 2-3oo lbs on his back yard annually and states it makes a huge difference.
Give it a try.
As you all have noticed, we are attempting to have all streets in the subdivision lined with “Cleveland Select Pear Trees”. As the Association has paid for lining the pear trees on New Castle Street, it was also to inspire homeowners to also place 1 to 3 trees (depending on the road frontage) on their own lots. Some of us have already completed the project and others have not.
As a note, we have access to a wholesale discount at Kluck’s Nursery. Just contact one of the board members for that information and if many purchase at the same time, the costs of delivery could be split for an additional savings. The list of homeowners has already begun, so get your name on the list!!
Many comments by visitors were already heard about the spring blossoms and how beautiful it is as you drive down our streets!
With property values declining all around us, let’s keep up the “curb appeal” of our homes and enhance the subdivision’s quality of high standards and pride of ownership.
Cul-de-Sac Common Area
As a reminder to all cul-de-sac home- owners, the cul-de-sac at your end, is your responsibility. The association has paid for the landscaping of these areas and they must be maintained. Each end should have a water hose & reel given to them by the association to water this circular area. Let’s all chip in and keep this area weed free and attractive. Spence Webb @ 781 4249 has a sprayer with Roundup Weed Killer to borrow if needed. Remember, we still need to attract more Buyers’ to fill the phase on Edgebrook!! Let’s all do our part!
