Embracing Engagement

Homeowners associations (HOAs), including Brambleton Community Association, play an important role in cultivating engaged and harmonious neighborhoods. The need for dedicated HOA leaders and volunteers who prioritize the collective well-being over personal objectives cannot be overstated. Effective leaders understand that they serve as advocates for the community's needs and ensure that decisions are made in the best interest of all residents. An exceptional leader embraces a sense of responsibility and commitment while working to create an environment where everyone feels heard, valued, and included. By selflessly placing the community's needs first, successful leaders contribute to the growth, unity, and overall quality of life within the community they serve.

During his time on the BCA Board of Directors, Director Ravi Balaram has been just that – an effective and

exceptional leader. From the day he submitted his name as a candidate, Ravi embraced engagement. During his tenure with Brambleton, he analyzed the Board election process and improved upon it. As the Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee, he oversaw the effort to revise the vision, mission, and goals of the Association for years to come. With his knowledge, experience, and love for flying, he led the Airport Impact Executive Committee in working with Loudoun County, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, and the Federal Aviation Administration toward understanding and reducing aircraft noise in Brambleton. Ravi has taken his role as a Board member earnestly and accomplished a great deal in his two years of service.

Thank you very much, Ravi Balaram! I'd like to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the entire Association for your dedication and

exceptional service to Brambleton over the last few years. Your accomplishments have made a long-lasting impact on our community. Your quick grasp of HOA processes and your unwavering commitment to excellence have been truly commendable. Your leadership, professionalism, and inclusive approach have enriched every endeavor you undertook. You embraced engagement in every decision you made for BCA. I am a better person having worked side-byside with you, and your shoes will be tough ones to fill.

So, the opportunity to be engaged is available for the rest of the Brambleton community. Are you able to volunteer as a candidate for the open Board position? Do you want to serve on a BCA Committee? Volunteer for an event? Help a neighbor in need? Homeowners associations are always in search of good leaders who give their time in large and small ways for the betterment of their community. There are countless ways for you to embrace engagement and serve the best interests of Brambleton and your fellow residents.

Thank You for Your Service

“How can I be useful, of what service can I be? There is something inside me, what can it be?” -

Service comes in many forms. Throughout my career in the military, I've often been told, “Thank you for your service.” It is a statement that used to make me quite uncomfortable as I never knew how to react. But, over time I became more settled with the appreciation and reciprocated with a simple “Thank you” in return. The United States Armed Services employs well over two million uniformed personnel and countless other civil servants and contractors around the world. Closer to home, this past week my father just retired after 46 years of government service to our nation (20 years

active-duty and 26 years as a contractor). I've always looked up to him for inspiration as a role model of leadership, character, and citizenship. For me, serving has always been a calling.

But service and serving do not only pertain to the armed forces. Of its many definitions, the most relevant from Merriam-Webster's Dictionary inform us that “service” includes: a helpful act performed by one for the contribution to the welfare of others; labor that does not necessarily produce a tangible commodity; and work to provide maintenance or repair.

These definitions of service provide us with a common understanding of serving the Brambleton Community

In Ravi’s short time with us on the BCA Board of Directors, he has made a lasting impact on Brambleton with his active engagement with the community and his leadership on our next Strategic Plan. In addition, his previous work as Vice President of the Board and Chair of the Airport Impact Executive Committee was vital in ensuring Brambleton’s strength in the years ahead.

On behalf of the Board, I’d like to wish him and his family good luck in his next deployment and thank you for not only serving our country, but in having been an active member of our Board and community.

Association and the Brambleton community as a whole. We have an amazing collection of talented individuals, both professionally paid and volunteers, who “serve” our community. I continue to be impressed on a daily basis just walking around our neighborhood. From the parks, trails, and pools to the events, management, and maintenance, we are truly blessed to have such a talented team supporting our local way of life.

I urge you all to volunteer to contribute your time to various opportunities to serve our community. Cheryl Esplin tells us, “Service doesn’t have to be big and grandiose to be meaningful and make a difference.” So the next time you see someone from BCA, I encourage you to thank them for their service!

Aerating & Overseeding: Nurturing Healthy Lawns

With cooler weather on the horizon, Brambleton Community Association is gearing up to aerate and overseed turf on many of our common area parcels. Brambleton homeowners should also think of doing the same to protect and strengthen their lawns heading into fall and winter.

A vibrant lawn not only enhances the beauty of a property but also plays a crucial role in promoting a healthy environment. Homeowners often invest time and effort into maintaining their lawns by mowing regularly, fertilizing, and watering. Aerating and overseeding are two additional, essential practices that are sometimes overlooked but can significantly boost lawn health and resilience.

Aerating is the process of perforating the soil with small holes, typically

two to six inches apart, either by using a spike aerator or a core aerator. Compacted soil is a common issue that hinders the growth of the grass and can lead to thinning, bare patches and increased susceptibility to diseases and pests.

Aerating breaks up the compacted soil, creating channels for air, water, and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the ground. This improves the root system's access to essential elements, promoting healthier growth. Furthermore, the increased oxygen circulation in the soil stimulates beneficial microbial activity, facilitating the breakdown of organic matter and promoting soil fertility.

As lawns age or face stress due to foot traffic, weather conditions, or diseases, grass density tends to decline. Overseeding involves spreading new grass seed over the existing lawn to fill in thin areas and promote a lush and robust carpet of grass. It also can introduce new grass varieties that may be more disease-resistant or better suited to the current climate conditions.

Additionally, overseeding helps prevent weeds from taking root in sparse areas, as the dense grass inhibits weed germination and growth. Overall, a

well-established lawn created through overseeding can better withstand environmental challenges like drought and extreme temperatures, as well as outcompete unwanted plants for sunlight, water, and nutrients.

Early fall is an ideal time to aerate and overseed. The moderate temperatures and increased moisture create the perfect conditions for seed germination and establishment. It is essential to prepare the lawn properly before aerating and overseeding. Mow the grass at a lower height than usual, rake away any debris, and water the lawn well a day or two beforehand. This ensures that the seeds have direct contact with the soil and the aeration holes can penetrate the ground easily.

Aerating and overseeding are vital components of a comprehensive lawn maintenance regimen. They work together to breathe new life into lawns, revitalizing their appearance and enhancing their resilience against various challenges. By promoting healthy root growth, denser grass, and improved soil conditions, aerating and overseeding contribute significantly to the long-term health and beauty of any lawn, allowing you to enjoy a lush and thriving landscape year-round.

BCA Annual Budget Breakdown

As the summer turns to fall and brings shorter days and cooler nights, Brambleton Community Association staff has once again begun the process of creating a new BCA Operating Budget. This year, we have the added benefit of utilizing the data gleaned from the Strategic Planning Community Survey sent out last year to all Brambleton residents.

There was an abundance of good information gathered from this survey, and we learned that our residents are generally pleased with all aspects of the Brambleton community. Therefore, we thought it would be informative to highlight a few areas addressed in the survey, note their impact on the annual budget, and comment on how these items are typically funded.

Strategic Planning Survey Responses:

80% of respondents were Very Satisfied or Satisfied with common area maintenance and resident services.

• Resident services most valued: Verizon Fios, Trash & Recycling Curbside Collection, Townhome Grounds Maintenance Program

• These items make up approximately 60% of the annual budget expenses. These services are fully funded by owner assessments.

77% of respondents were Very Satisfied or Satisfied with Amenities & Lifestyle Activities.

• Amenities most valued: Trails, Pools, Natural Areas, Playgrounds

• Lifestyle Activities most valued: EatLoco Farmers Market, Fireworks, Holiday Events, BrewFest

• These items make up approximately 10% of the annual budget expenses. Event & Program Income from Rentals, Sponsorships, and Event Ticket Sales offsets 84% of event expenses.

70% of respondents were Very Satisfied or Satisfied with Communications between BCA management and residents.

• This category makes up approximately 10% of the annual budget expenses. Income from advertising helps offset a large portion of communication costs. Did you know the Brambleton Magazine is fully funded through advertisements?

65% of respondents were Very Satisfied or Satisfied that the BCA is consistently enforcing Design Standards.

• This category makes up approximately 10% of the annual budget expenses. This service is fully funded by owner assessments.

The remaining 10% of the annual budget is attributed to the reserve accounts: General, Townhome, Common Driveway, and Recreation, which are all fully funded by owner assessments.

In addition to the survey findings noted, 80% of respondents are Very Likely or Likely to recommend living in Brambleton to someone they know. Additionally, 32% of respondents are willing to pay to improve or add BCA services, and 32% of respondents are unwilling to pay to improve or add services.

Brambleton residents are invited to participate in the 2024 Budget development process at every step. The BCA Board of Directors is scheduled to review and approve the Budget at their meeting on October 17. BCA residents always have the opportunity to provide their opinion and feedback to the Financial Advisory Committee or the Board during the Resident Forum portion held at every meeting.

Questions pertaining to the current or 2024 Budget or Assessments can be directed to General Manager Rick Stone at or Finance Specialist Julianne Geyser at julianne. Budget and Assessment information can be found at

Prepare Your Home: Helpful Fall Maintenance Tips

Where spring is generally a time to plan new home projects and get ready for summer, fall is a time to prepare your home to handle the winter and be in great shape heading into spring. The Brambleton Community Association Community Standards department has shared a few suggestions for home checks and projects that can be accomplished in the coming months.


• Driveways: This is a good time to reseal your driveway if it has faded or has cracked in the summer heat. Filling in cracks before resealing will prevent winter ice from expanding them and creating further damage.

• Gutters: Ensuring gutters are clear is essential for fall rain and melting snow to find an unobstructed path to the downspouts. Blockages can cause water to pool and potentially find its way into your home.

• Planting: Some plants do best when planted in the fall. If you want to add new shrubs or spring bulbs like hyacinth, now is the time to do so. Fall annuals, such as pansies, are also a great addition to keep some color in your yard as other plants go to sleep.


• Trees and Shrubs: Trimming dead branches and cutting back overgrown trees and bushes will get them ready for dormancy through the winter and in a position for a healthy awakening in the spring. If you have blooming perennials, such as clematis or roses, now is the time to prune them and train the branches.

• Exterior Lighting: October brings shorter days and crowds of trick-ortreaters. Check and change the bulbs on exterior carriage lights, garage lights, and landscape up-lighting to make sure the exterior of your home is safely and appropriately illuminated.

• Lawn Maintenance: Depending on daytime temperatures, the end of October is generally a good time to apply fertilizer to your lawn. Roots are still active when the grass is no longer growing, so applying fertilizer will prevent winter damage and will also lead to a lusher lawn in the spring.


• Home Safety: Daylight saving time ends this year on Sunday, November 5. This is always a good time to replace batteries in smoke and carbon

monoxide detectors and to make sure fire extinguishers are operable and strategically staged around your home.

• Winter Equipment: Winters have been mild the past few years, but it is still smart to test your winter equipment (such as snow blowers) and make sure you are adequately stocked with snow shovels and ice scrapers.

• Water Pipes: Before the real cold temperatures come, perform the winterization treatment on irrigation systems and protect pipes for exterior spigots from freezing by emptying them and turning off the outside water lines.

Creating a monthly plan is a great way to organize necessary home safety and maintenance tasks throughout the year. It is also a good way to ensure that tasks are performed in the months where they will be most successful and manageably spread out throughout the year.

Between shuffling kids everywhere, entertaining the dog, working Brambleton Community Association events, and doing everything in between, I need to remind myself to take a moment and pause. It wasn’t until the last couple of years where I’ve realized the importance of overall wellness, to include putting myself first. I have always made sure to stay physically active, but something was missing. Two years ago, my oldest son started a spiritual journey which included yoga, meditation, and breathing. He shared a lot of what he learned through books he read which inspired me to start my own journey.

Earlier this spring, I had the privilege of attending a week-long “A Return to You” retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica, hosted by JKS Yoga. Described as a “soul-stirring and blissful journey of self-discovery” with an opportunity to

experience Costa Rica’s Blue Zone, I was immediately sold. And to travel with two dear friends I met in Brambleton many years ago, this trip was meant for me. I tend to push myself at all my workouts, so the idea of yoga all week seemed like something my body really needed. What I didn’t realize is that this trip would include so much more than just yoga.

The retreat house was located at a seaside jungle with a trail leading to the ocean. The days included morning coffee, meditation, yoga, journaling, lessons, homework, self-reflection, and deep conversations. There were workshops, excursions, and even a sound bath thrown into the week. A family of howler monkeys and other creatures would also often join us for our outdoor sessions. To top it off, every meal, snack, and beverage was organic, made from scratch, colorful, and packed with healing nutrients, all prepared with love by our private chef Go Bi.

I am still in awe with what I experienced during that trip. Every moment was a gift, and I’ve gained more emotional, physical, and spiritual strength. I have brought back a piece of Nosara with me and reflect to that space when things become overwhelming. With life happening at a fast pace, especially in this area, it’s so important to pause. The happiness and balance that I’ve found has improved so many aspects of my life, including the relationship I have with each of my kids. For anyone looking to take their own journey in self-discovery, I highly recommend going on a retreat like this one.

JKS Yoga will hold their next retreat in Joshua Tree on October 5-12. They also offer virtual yoga sessions, free recorded classes, and private and group sessions. Visit for more information.

Resident Spotlight: Tim Groszkowski

We spoke with longtime Brambleton resident Tim Groszkowski about his experiences as a local beekeeper, his knowledge about sustainable solar practices and bee swarming behaviors, and more! Look for an extended version of this article on the BCA Facebook page in early September.

How long have you lived in Brambleton? What prompted you to choose Brambleton? This year will mark 15 years of our family living in Brambleton. We selected Brambleton because it checked all the boxes: a selection of homes that fit our needs, great schools, and amenities near all that the DMV has to offer.

What inspired you to become a beekeeper? I previously owned and operated Great Harvest Bread Company. It is a made-from-scratch operation where we used a large amount of honey in our breads. I thought it would be fun to get into beekeeping to highlight and support the bees, so I purchased my first beehive in 2016.

Since then, I have taken a beekeeping class at George Mason University, because there is so much more to beekeeping than just honey! My apiary currently has five active hives that are a stone’s throw from Brambleton. More recently, I’ve had the opportunity to visit several elementary school classes in Loudoun and teach them about bees.

What is your most interesting experience as a beekeeper? The most interesting experience to date was a surprise visit by a bear that destroyed two hives this spring. It’s no secret that bears are in the area, but they never bothered the hives before this year. I have since invested in a solar electric fence to prevent this from happening in the future.

How does your work in the solar industry complement your interests in beekeeping and sustainability? I am a utility-scale solar developer working to develop solar and battery storage facilities across the United States. I’m happy to share that solar farms are great for bees! With over a 25-year life span, these pollinator-friendly solar farms are essentially becoming private habitat reserves for pollinators desperately in need of them. Solar Based Beekeeping gives back to the environment through the pollination of plots of pollinator habitat. Solar projects planted with a ground cover of native pollinator plants provide much-needed habitat and diverse food sources for critical pollinators like bees and butterflies.

What is something people don’t typically know about bees? Many people do not know why bees swarm. Swarms may contain hundreds or even thousands of bees that people have come to fear. Swarming bees are actually nonthreatening, and the swarming behavior is a natural means for bees to reproduce.

When a hive becomes overcrowded, the queen bee will leave with a group of worker bees to start a new colony. If the swarm is not relocated, it could end up in an inconvenient location, such as an attic or cavity inside your home.

You can prevent bees and other insects from nesting in your home with preventive maintenance. Honeybees will not create an entrance to a nest but rather look for an existing opening. Periodic inspection and sealing of holes and cracks where bees can get in will help stop them from setting up residence in buildings.

What are your family’s favorite Brambleton activities and events? We enjoy exercising on the extensive Brambleton trails, and our kids like the Town Center and often make their way to The Filling Co. The summer concerts and BrewFest are also fun to attend.
