Letter from the President Sharing knowledge

You would think that it’s common knowledge that everybody should know! However, everyone amongst us has unique knowledge about certain ...56"##$%&'($+,-+.#-&'51+, things that can benefit our community and could be shared. Knowledge can be as brief as, “Which contractor did you have a good or a bad experience with doing work at your house” to, “What’s the best way to ...........”. Sharing knowledge can have great benefits for our neighborhood, ranging from wards all-around looking better, saving money, increasing bonds between neighbors and raising OFFICERS property values, just to name a few.

First, I can share couple of things that can save some money and make your lawn look better. Walking around, I noticed that some sprinkler systems are turned on around midday to late afternoon (12 to 3 pm). During these hours, the sunshine and temperature are at their peak, and water evaporation is at its peak as well. This reduces the effectiveness of your watering process and costs you more. Studies suggest that best time for you to water your lawn is early hours, right before sunrise. This will allow water to penetrate into the soil and, when the sun starts shinning, it will evaporate any excess water remaining on your lawn that can promote the growth of fungus and other diseases. The second best time would be before sunset, which would have only one benefit of the two mentioned above (higher water utilization, but less fungus/disease control). You don’t need to water every day, but you need 1’’ per week that is better broken into more intervals. If rain did not provide that, you will need watering. Another thing I can share with you is about the color of plastic mulch. I was reading a plant-care book in which they stated, “Green mulch helps the growth of Zucchini plants, while red mulch helps the growth of tomato plants”. However, some on-line technical articles suggest that the color did not matter, just that mulch in general had advantage over bare soil due to reduction of evaporation, weed control, and worming up soil. Maybe someone in our neighborhood has hands-on experience that he/she can share with our community about the impact of the color of much. Please brainstorm about any little ideas that can benefit our neighborhood, and if you’d like to share, you can send an email or call any board member or email me at msalem23@yahoo.com, and we can discuss how we can share it with others.
