Lawn and Landscape Moving Into The New Year
It seems that the 2022 growing season has come to an end with early cold temperatures. Central Park did not get many afternoons of typical Fall weather. This has followed one of the hottest and driest Summers Bel Aire has experienced in a long time. Some homeowners made the decision to let their grass/turf go dormant during the hottest time. Unfortunetly, occassional water is still necessary. Without any moisture Fescue lawns will die. This time of year it is easy to spot dead turf. The moisture we have had recently has allowed the living turf to green back up. This will be obvious until prolonged cold weather is the normal pattern. The blonde patches within lawns is dead. Some lawns are completely dead.
Also the extreme heat was hard on landscape plantings. Many areas became overgrown with weeds and foreign grasses.
Homeowners will be expected to address and rectify these issues in the Spring.
As per Central Park Architectural Design Guidelines.
Homeowners are responsible to keeep mulched and rock beds full, maintained, and free of weeds and grass.
