Some Lawn Science

There are several websites that suggest how to care for and promote a healthy lawn.  Please click here to read the full document...and tips we feel appropriate for our Senators community.

"Cycle and Soak" Irrigation Schedule
 
Lawns will be watered using the Cycle and Soak schedule.  Every other day starting at 7pm and ending at 9am the next morning half of the community will be watered in two 20-minute cycles.  The other half of the community will run the next night with the same cycle.  Flower beds, shrubs, and devil strips will also run every other night.

Notes

Pond Fountains are stored on-site for the winter and will be re-installed mid- to late-March by our pond vendor Solitude.

Ponds Fall/Winter Season: 

"Winter die off (tall reeds in ponds) occurs naturally every year once aquatic vegetation goes dormant.  Most of the stems are still attached and actively trans-locating nutrients to the roots during dormancy.  Eventually the plants will completely shed the rest of these stalks, decompose and break down.  Raking out the decomposing stems is not necessary for this natural cycle or for water quality."
