DEED RESTRICTIONS

The purpose of Deed Restrictions in your neighborhood is to protect and

enhance property values. They set guidelines for initial construction,

perpetual maintenance and property use. As residents agree to abide

by the majority view; the style and standards of a community are

established and everyone benefits. For your information, restrictions

are written by the developer before the first home is constructed and

the Association is then charged with the on-going responsibility of

enforcing them. They can be changed, but a very large percentage vote of

homeowners is required to do so. Please let us know if you see a problem

in the neighborhood.

Gardening Tips For October

• Dig and store caladiums before the foliage dies. Allow the bulbs to dry

in the shade, shake off the dried soil and dust with sulphur to control

fungus. Store by hanging in open mesh bags or old panty hose.

• Flowers planted for spring can begin when the temperatures are going

to stay cooler. Shrubs and trees can be planted now. Woody plants

concentrate on root growth through the winter and the more headstart

they can get before summer, the better.

October 15th is about the time for dividing and planting daylilies.

• Watch out for brown patch in St. Augustine grass. These circular brown

patches are caused by a fungus that is activated by moist cool weather.

Control with Daconil.

• If you need to do any pruning, do it early in the month. The re-growth

stimulated by pruning needs to harden off before that odd-ball frost of

Halloween. Prune fruit trees when leaves begin to fall. Remove all dead,

weak and over-crowded growth. Tip back main branches to control size

and shape. Spray w/dormant oil when temperature is between 30-60

degrees.

• Cut back tops of perennials after they have bloomed. Divide roots and

transplant anytime from now until March, the earlier the better.

• Get the ant baits down. This will greatly reduce your spring populations.

• Clover left over from last year may be growing. It’s best to hit it with

the post-emerge herbicides in October and November. At least two

applications are usually needed, even if done this early.

• For color throughout the winter, begin planting pansies.
