LIMITED WATERING BEGINS IN NOVEMBER
Posted on Oct 29, 2014 Comments (0)
Stage 3 restrictions continue...but change...
There is a change to the water restrictions. We begin seasonal watering restrictions in Stage 3 on November 2, 2014. From November-March each year, Stage 3 allows the use of irrigation systems or sprinklers once every two weeks, and there is no longer a daytime watering restriction. During winter cold temperatures, it may be necessary to water during the daylight hours to prevent freezing of sidewalks, driveways and streets. It is always prohibited to use irrigation systems during rain or freeze events. If your irrigation controller cannot be scheduled to run once every two weeks, then it is best to keep the controller OFF and only use manually on your allowed day when watering is necessary. When we have adequate rainfall, it will not be necessary to use the sprinkler system at all. The allowed weeks to water are on the calendar and watering map schedule. More information on what is and is not allowed is available on the City of Allen website. Our careful water use will help with water conservation and prevent costly fines. Here is a watering schedule map for the city.

Pruning

  • Trim back tropical plants such as cannas, banana and elephant ears after their foliage freezes down.
  • Do major re-shaping of shade trees as needed after the first freeze when plants go dormant.
Plant Care
  • Mulch leaves on your lawn. Shred excess leaves and add to planting beds or compost pile.
  • Replenish finished compost and mulch in planting beds, preferably before the first freeze.
  • Continue to mow warm season turf up to first freeze.
  • Apply fertilizer to pansies and other plants to promote strong growth if needed.
  • Inspect houseplants that are coming indoors to be sure they have no insect pests.
  • Harvest fall vegetables before the first freeze.
  • Remove and drain garden hoses from outlets and cover faucets to prevent freeze damage.

STARCREEK TEAM CLEAN-UP
Sunday, March 8, 2015, 9 a.m. at pavilion
StarCreek Team Green is a City of Allen Adopt-A-Waterway program. We have adopted the portion of Cottonwood Creek which runs from Highway 121 to Stacy Road, with a small tributary extending to Watters Road. This area is very safe. We clean the creek, ponds, walking trails, and common areas located in the neighborhood of StarCreek. The areas are very well maintained by our HOA; however, the HOA does not pick up the litter; that is up to volunteers. Currently, four cleanup events are scheduled for the 2014-2015 school year.

The City of Allen provides all of the supplies for the cleanups, including gloves, trash bags, and grabbers. All we need now is you. Many students have schedules which may conflict with these days/times, but, if you need community service hours and can't participate on Saturday mornings, contact Darlene DeDominicis for a day/time that works with your busy schedule of school, work, and sports. If you have never participated in a Team Green cleanup, you must complete a Release of Liability form. To volunteer contact Darlene.
