COMMUNITY EVENTS CHAIR NEEDED

Our current chair will be stepping down and we are in need of someone to step up! If you are interested in being chair for community events (which include: Easter Egg Hunt, July 4th Parade & Pool Party, Fall Dive In Movie & Snow Day), please contact Kristie Poldervaart at poldervaartk@gmail. com or 281-647-9483.  

Pool Monitor Needed for Park Cypress

If you use our neighborhood pools, we need you! We are in need of a pool monitor for Park Cypress. This is an easy way to volunteer. You simply observe 2 or 3 times a month (during swim season), each item on the check list (which is provided to you) and report any issues to the Pool Chair. If you are interested in this volunteer position, please contact Kristie Poldervaart at poldervaartk@gmail.com or 281-647-9483.  

COMMUNITY EVENTS ARE GREATLY IN NEED OF VOLUNTEERS

We have 4 community events a year (Easter Egg Hunt, July 4th Parade & Pool Party, Fall Dive-In Movie & Snow Day) and without volunteers, these events would not happen. In the past, we had enough volunteers where each person only had to help an hour for each event. The more volunteers, the lighter the load for all involved. If you have children who enjoy these events, please consider volunteering and contact Kristie Poldervaart at poldervaartk@gmail.com or 281-647-9483.

What Is Wrong with My Lawn?

If you have spots in your yard that are yellowing or dying, be sure you are treating the right problem. Chinch bugs, Brown Patch and Take-all Root Rot fungus are all possible causes. Chinch bugs can be a problem when the weather is hot and dry. Keep lawns properly watered. Excess nitrogen fertilizer makes the lawn more susceptible to chinch bugs. A few chinch bugs are normal, but large brown

Brown patch thrives in warm, humid environments, especially as nights get cooler. It can cause patches of your lawn to turn brown, wilt and dry up. If you pull on a clump, the blades will break off, leaving the runners. Turf affected by Brown Patch will grow back, usually from the middle of the area out leaving a round ring just before it rebounds completely. Brown Patch often appears in turf, which is high in nitrogen and overfertilized. Large amounts of grass clippings left on the yard may also encourage fungus. Wet soil also encourages fungus. If you irrigate, do so late at night, just before and at daybreak - not in the evening or just after dark. Be sure your yard drains and does not hold standing water.

Consult your garden center or the internet for fungicide suggestions. Two or three treatments may be needed during a growing season. One suggested organic treatment for brown patch: Mix one TBSP baking soda, one TBSP corn oil and one gallon water. Spray a light mist of the solution to your lawn. In order for fungicides and fertilizers to work, you will need to test the PH of your soil. Lawns need to have a PH, which measures 6.5 - 7.0. You can use a PH test kit or a PH soil probe. Take-all Root Rot Fungus attacks both St. Augustine and Bermuda lawns stressed by too much or too little water. If you pull on a clump of brown grass, it will lift easily - roots and all. It can appear in hot weather, unlike Brown Patch fungus, which usually appears when nights are cooler. go to www.plantanswers.com/root_rot_fungus for more information on identification and treatment. Part of this information is from www.bugspray. com/article/fungus (website).

Watering Tips

Conserve water; water only when needed. Your goal should be 1 to 1 1/2 inches per week. Less frequent, deeper watering encourages deeper root growth and helps your yard endure dry spells. Adjust your irrigation so that it does not spray paved areas or run off over curbs. Consider running two shorter cycles to allow water to soak in. Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day; you will lose more water to evaporation. see http://aggiehorticulture.tamu.edu/newsletters/hortupdate/2011/apr/water.html or www. ktrh.com/pages/gardenline-watering for more tips. Comply with any water restrictions set by our MUD districts.

THINGS TO DO FOR SEPTEMBER

Apply a low-nitrogen winterizer fertilizer to the lawn toward the end of this month or early in October. You may begin planting bulbs for spring. Use superphosphate or bulb food instead of bone meal to feed bulbs if squirrels are a problem. Refrigerate tulips, hyacinths, muscari and crocus at least 4-6 weeks before planting.

Ready for Hurricane Season?

Storms can develop quickly. Some advance preparation will eliminate a last minute scramble.

areas, especially near pavement, need attention. To check for cinch bugs, cut a plug of half-dead, half-alive grass and submerge in water. Chinch bugs (black bodies, white wings) will float. Even if bugs are present, keeping the area well-watered may keep the grass from turning brown. You can apply a solution purchased from a lawn/garden store to help control them.

WEBSITE

The Website for Green Trails Phase II (www.greentrailstwo.com) has a “blast email” function. This feature allows the Association to send news to residents on a mass basis. The Board of Directors intends to start utilizing this function more frequently to disseminate important information, particularly in emergencies like Hurricane Ike. If you have not registered and would like to do so, please go to the “Join Our Mailing List” section of the Website. The only information that you need to enter is your email address. Each of the other items is optional, including your name. None of the information will be distributed to third parties.

281-463-6666. An alert Green Trails resident recently foiled a car theft by calling the constable when something didn’t seem right. The suspects were arrested. Remember, “No call is too small.”


STREET LIGHT OUTAGES

Please note that the association pays electrical charges for a streetlight whether the bulb is functioning or not. To report street light outages you can contact CenterPoint Energy at 713-207-2222 or www.centerpointenergy. com. Be sure to note the pole number and the street address.

How Do We Look?

Curb appeal has a big impact on your property value, even if your home is not for sale. Buyers evaluate the neighborhood, not just one house. Stand back from your house and take a close look to see if it needs a mini-makeover. Think about security as well. Has your shrubbery become overgrown, covering windows or blocking the sidewalk? Do low-hanging limbs obscure the front? Does the lawn have brown areas or weeds? Is the siding mildewed or paint peeling? You may want to ask a friend’s opinion; it is easy to overlook things we see everyday. Make plans now to spruce up. Cars parked in the street are also a turn-off to buyers. Make the extra effort to keep cars in the driveway. It looks better, and is safer for your neighbors and your car.

Expedited ARC Approvals

Remember to apply and get ARC approval before doing work that affects the exterior appearance of your house or yard. This includes replacing fences, repainting (even the same color) and re-roofing. Approval can take up to one month, so plan ahead. In many cases, you can now expedite the process by paying a $50 fee. For details, see the website, www.greentrailstwo.com or call Crest Management at 281-579-0761.

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 sulfur 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.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU LETTER TO THE TAYLOR HIGH SCHOOL BAND

Taylor High School Band and Participants,   My husband and I were so pleased to see how dedicated these young men and women were to get up so early on a sunny, bright Saturday morning to march down our streets in Nottingham. Philip and I never had children, but we have participated in the school district for over 23 years.   The recognition of long hours these young men and women endured for practice in order to participate in such a live event. It truly appeared to be well conducted and arranged. What an amazing treat we were awoken to. Regardless, if someone was able to hear or not hear the music, it was certainly felt.   We enjoyed our alarm that morning; to hear the sounds of drums in the distance, the feeling the vibration through our walls. The sound and vibration of marching feet in formation with instruments down our neighborhood. Neighbors were dashing out of their homes to this great attraction. Some taking pictures and video of this great spectacular event. And let’s not forget the participation of the EMS and Fire Department vehicles and the driver of that huge rig was such a thrill to see. And of course to all the parents, escorts, teachers and affiliates to help make all this happen for our community.   Close your eyes; listen or feel the music, it will take you to many places without ever packing a bag. So, play on and don’t ever stop the music!   Thank you so very much for sharing your enjoyment of music with us all.   Philip and Tisha Matticks

Scouts Girl Scout Gold Award

Dayna Porter, a junior at Taylor High School, recently earned her Girl Scout Gold Award. Dayna’s project targeted homelessness in Houston and was called Bags for Hope. She and her volunteers sewed 200 small fabric drawstring bags and filled them with water bottles and various toiletry items like soaps, razors, shampoos and lotions that were donated by many friends and several hotels in the community. Once the bags were completed Dayna delivered them to two missions – the Star of Hope Mission and the Open Door Mission, which are both located in Houston. Dayna would like to thank everyone for the many donations that helped make her project possible.

The scope of our support is limited only by the availability of resources. Our goal, the rainbow that we chase, is to leave no legitimate request for assistance unanswered. Do you have the time and desire to volunteer to help a great cause? We are always in need of volunteers to help throughout the year. This is a great way for school age kids to get in community service hours. Do you have gently used children’s clothing, shoes and jackets? At Houston Children’s Charity we are setting up the “HCC Closet.” All of the items donated will be given to children – not sold at a retail store. Please contact our office at 713-524-2878 or visit our website www.houstonchildrenscharity.org for more information on our organization.

STANDUP FOR KIDS

How would you feel if you saved a kid’s life? StandUp For Kids is an all volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of at-risk and homeless kids through volunteer outreach efforts. Our volunteers search the streets in order to find, stabilize and otherwise help homeless and street kids improve their lives. Every day throughout the US thirteen kids die on the streets from abuse, disease and suicide. According to recent statistics Houston has up to 2,500 kids living on the streets at any given time. Texas has the highest rate of homeless youth in the U.S. StandUp For Kids needs supplies for our Houston program, which provides food, clothing, counseling and a safe environment for the homeless youth of Houston. If you or your organization would like to hold a food or clothing drive for StandUp For Kids, please contact me at HeatherE@standupforkids.org to learn more about StandUp For Kids or how you can help, visit our website at www.standupforkids.org. The single greatest need, for homeless and street kids is our continuous caring and real support. We must convince them that we care, we want them back and we want to help them get off the streets.

Adopt A US Soldier

Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers and donors to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed soldiers and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those serving in the United States Armed Forces. Adopt A US Soldier is sustained by its volunteer workforce located across the United States. After a supporter asked a soldier what they needed, his response was as follows: “No requests, just don’t want to be forgotten.” -LCPL O.J.T.
