Landscape Activity for November
Posted on Wednesday, October 29 @ 21:59:43 (2 reads)
Announcements Given the current drought and city mandated restrictions, the board opted out of our typical fall turf treatment: mow-dethatch-aerate-reseed. The amount of irrigation required to assure seed germination and growth was above the current restrictions. Seaside has opted not to do this occasionally in the past and it seemed like a good idea given the drought. Our turf may not look as lush and green as it does when winter seed is used. Such is the cost of a significant drought.

Tree trimming is on the way! Pruning should start mid November and - weather permitting - finish up by early December. Most Major species will be pruned: Palms, Melaluca, Ruby Ficus, Alder, Pine, Tipuana, Coral and Tristania. One high volume species that will not be trimmed this time around are the New Zealand Christmas trees - typically near the driveways. These were trimmed last year and can be trimmed on a 2-3 year schedule.

Seaside Village recently invited a review of our landscape/irrigation/water use by the Metropolitan Water District. The report being generated will give us guidance on water conservation going forward. In the meantime - to address long term landscape concerns - the Board approved turf replacement/renovation for the exterior of our community along Beach Blvd. The board has worked hard to secure CalTrans street sweeping and associated parking constraints, city donated trash cans, replacement of aged oleander and additional security patrols specifically focused to keep this area clean, safe and enjoyable as area upgrades take place. The turf removal comes with a substantial rebate from the MWD of Orange County and significant cost savings on irrigation going forward as the replacement plantings require far less water than turf. We'll be looking to replicate some of this type of landscape in select areas in and around our community. Please give the project some time to mature and give the board constructive feedback. Beach Blvd. turf removal/renovation must be finished prior to December 24th in order to assure receipt of the rebate.

Please don't hesitate to email Michelle Benson with landscape and irrigation concerns. We can't fix what we don't see!

Thank You,
Mike Churchin
Landscape Committee Chairperson
