All areas were corrected as of Tuesday evening – Thank you Garron Grounds and Steve Chinn

Post from this weekend:

Because of the construction on Boones Bend and Fairway a main line was broken on Friday, so the houses on the south side of Fairway will not have Irrigation water this weekend.

Crane Fly Application this Weekend

We have noticed some areas of crane fly in the lawns marked by green on the map below. They will be treated this weekend and it is suggested you keep your animals off the lawns in these areas this weekend.

Sprinklers will be turned on this weekend

Please note that we will be running the sprinklers on Saturday night (May 12th) and Monday (May 14th) at 50% because of the hot weather which is forecast. This isn’t the start of full-time watering.  That won’t start till the pumps go in the river probably late May or early June.

Per the Golf Course- ” We usually wait until were comfortable that the river levels won’t rise.  We think we can have the river pump operational within the next 1 – 2 weeks.  In the meantime, water as needed to maintain what you have, but encourage your landscapers to be judicious, I don’t think anything in the 10-day forecast will necessitate mid-summer type irrigation.

We’ll let you know when we have the pump in the river, we’re currently working through a couple logistical issues, but should have those resolved shortly”.

Spring Snail Alert

Spring is here – and so are the snails who love to dine on our leafy green plants, especially hostas.  Garron has treated with an initial application of snail and slug bait. We are recommending that homeowners continue treating their plants to defeat these pests.

 

Murphy’s Green update

Murphy’s Green
At the February Board meeting, the improvement of the Murphy’s Green area were approved with a chipping and putting green as presented at the January Holiday party.

You may have noticed some preliminary work being done this past week.  While it is too cold to begin seeding the putting surface, Garron will be marking out some proposed planting areas and taking line of sight measurements to be sure the proposed plants don’t obstruct any views. Once that is done, we will prepare a planting plan for each area and hope to be able to review those with the homeowners that have a direct view of the area.

You can direct any questions to Karen Siegel or Steve Chinn.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Holiday Party was fun and informative with Murphy’s Green update

As you know, we had the CHOA Holiday Party on January 20th.  Approximately 100 folks attended.  There was great food and conversation.

In addition, Ken from Garron Grounds laid out several options for Murphy’s Green.  The reason the Board wanted to present this information during the Holiday Party was that the timing was good to figure out the Spring planting ideas for the space.

The Board wants to hear from you about what you want done with Murphy’s Green.

We had an informal survey of the folks attending and Option B (chipping and putting) got the most votes with Option A second (putting only).  You can see the options below.

Reminder: Winter Pruning and Weeding Update

WINTER PRUNING AND WEEDING

 

You may notice the Garron crews out and about.  Winter pruning of Lilies, Hydrangeas, and Sedum and trimming of Lavenders, Red Twig, Ground Covers, and Grasses are beginning soon and will continue into February.

If there are plants you don’t want pruned, be sure you have your name on the “No Prune” list.  If you want to be added or are not sure you are on the list, please contact Steve Chinn at schinno@gmail.com.

Reminder: CHOA Holiday Party is next Saturday Jan 20th at 4:00 at the Country Club!

Happy New Year Neighbors!

Because December was such a busy time, the CHOA Holiday Party will be this coming Saturday January 20th, 4:00 pm at the Charbonneau Country Club.

This will be a great time to get together to meet new neighbors and catch up with everyone.

In addition, Garron Grounds will be will be presenting several options for Murphy’s Green.

Please bring an Appetizer to share.  Coffee and water will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Note from Garron Grounds on Pruning of Trees

CHOA Homeowners,

September 22nd is the Official Start of Fall.

As we begin our fall pruning, we’d like to hear from you about any pruning concerns you may have around your home.

We will be happy to meet with you and discuss preferences we can accommodate during this next pruning cycle. You may have plants that have grown so large they are blocking your views or interfering with your landscape.

We can also discuss the pros & cons of renovation pruning during this time of year.

We will be glad to schedule a visit with you to inspect your landscaping needs and any other concerns you may have.
