A Note from the President

The new mailbox posts have been installed – they certainly look nice. We have less than 25 left and will be ordering another 100. So if you your post looks sad, you can order a new one. We will be looking for "sad posts" in the next community inspection.

Everyone is enjoying the pool now that the hot weather has arrived. However, despite signs on the door into the clubhouse, we have a liability issue. People, especially children, are still coming into the clubhouse from the pool without drying off and without wearing
shoes. The floors in the bathrooms are tile and can be very slippery when wet. Also we see little footprints in water on the lobby hardwood floors (Candy dish). We have no problem with the candy, but
we do object to the water on the wood floors. So if you bring children to the pool, please make sure they have dried off and have shoes on before they come into the clubhouse.

Keep hydrated and stay cool,

 Joyce Bryant

Brickman Notes

Another Summer in The Piedmont of NC

As another summer comes to a close, we are looking forward to the fall. We are focusing on the weed control in the lawns, and pruning around the homes. We are continuing to make our rounds on the pruning by following a detailed breakdown of the property into 5 sections – each section being serviced in 1 week.

As the summer comes to an end, we are beginning to develop plans for the fall aeration and overseeding plan that will happen in early September – more specifics on the schedule next month.

We have continued to spot spray the lawns for the summer emerging weeds. With some of the drastic heat that we have experienced, we have begun to see some lawns go dormant for the summer – this is quite common, and once we cool back down the lawns will green back up.

During August we will continue to monitor the turf health, and make our plans for fall lawn renovations.

As always, continue to provide us with your feedback through the clubhouse office so that we can be sure to address your concerns.
