Fall is in the Air
With Fall quickly approaching Communities are bustling with changes. Most pools have officially closed, daylight hours are dwindling, and schools have officially re-open.
In preparation for this autumn, most communities are scaling back on landscaping services to prepare for the winter months. You may find that your association board may be more focused on aeration, seeding, deep root fertilization and spraying for bugs to prepare for the next Spring. Later in the season bulbs will be planted in flower beds, so that they will pop up in the spring, and leaves will be collected. This is also generally the best season for planting trees in the mid-Atlantic; it will be warm enough for several months for them to grow and take root, and they won't have to deal with intense heat until next year.
Back to School
Please be aware of students going to and coming from their school bus stops. Please use caution when driving through your communities and always be on the lookout for students during peak hours in the early AM & PM hours, particularly on crossing roads. If you do not know where your school bus stops are near your house please contact your local school, who should be able to provide more information.
In the coming month, we will have a post about Winterization for your community and home.
