RECYCLE YARD WASTE Residents of Falcon Ranch could benefit the community, as well as their own lawns and pocketbooks, with one simple change in lawn maintenance. If you or your lawn service currently bag grass clippings, simply leaving the clippings to work down into the lawn will make a huge difference in the amount of waste our community puts into the landfill each year. It will also help conserve water, because the clippings will work to maintain moisture in the soil. Both of these benefits will save money in the long-run. Moreover, it is estimated that lawns that are naturally fertilized with grass clippings require 25% less fertilizer - resulting in even more savings to you! Grass clippings and finely chopped leaves add vital nutrients and organic matter to the lawn, thus improving the health of the lawn. It isn’t necessary to use a mulching mower; just mow one inch when grass reaches four inches tall. The clippings won’t be noticed and will break down within a week. REPORTING SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY You may have noticed the constables patrolling our neighborhoods, working to keep our community safer for everyone. The appearance of constables has raised a question of what to do if you witness suspicious activity. If you see something happening that is an emergency, please call 911. If you see suspicious activities that are not emergencies, call the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665. STREETLIGHTS OUT?
