Goodbye Winter, Hello Awesome Lawns!

Well, Woodland Lawn came by for our first mow of the year yesterday.  With that, mowing season has begun!  They’re going to be on Tuesday again this year (with exceptions when weather causes problems of course).

Please remember to keep your lawns free from all obstructions to mowers and pick up pet waste so it doesn’t get spread around, stuck to shoes, or damage lawns.  Storage of large tools can be on patios, decks, or in garages or basements if you’re lucky enough to have a walkout 🙂

Now’s also a good time to take care of missing sprinkler valve covers.  Walk around your lawn to see if you have any missing or loose.  Replace them if they’re missing.  TIP: Secure them with a bolt so they stay safe.  I did that and I’ve never had a lid get damaged or go missing.

Sprinkler system maintenance is individual lot owner responsibility, but I identified the supplier and model name of our sprinkler boxes and have a growing list of TRV house replacement parts on our website.

Let me know if you have info to add to that list to help out your neighbours.

This Saturday is the board’s monthly TRV litter pick up.  So expect to see some of us out with buckets around 830.  If you’re free around that time, say high and come help.

I will be offering free sprinkler turn-on again this year.  Let me (Billy) know if you’d like help turning on the outdoor valves of your sprinklers.  It takes about 5 minutes.  I can probably see a couple people this Saturday morning before 8:15 or between 9 and 9:30, and others Sunday.

Once your sprinkler system is turned on for the season, run each zone manually and inspect the sprinkler heads to check that they all work properly.
If your sprinkler system needs repair, we’re recommending Dusty Gulick of Smith Brother’s Lawn (913) 207-2421 but you may use any contractor you like.
All of us are required to water enough to maintain healthy lawns, but not so much that the lawn is soggy on mowing day.
So make sure you understand how your sprinkler controller is scheduled, and keep an eye on your lawn so you can adjust the schedule as needed throughout the season.  I posted the manual to our website in case anyone’s paper copy went missing.

If you have questions or feedback about HOA services or requirements, reply to Feedback@TimberRidgeVillas.com and we’re happy to help!

Looking forward to a great summer!
-Billy, Board-member, Secretary
