Upcoming HOA projects in the Common Areas

As you know, we are starting the year with a number of common area updates and improvements due to wear & tear, changing codes, security and storm damage.  All of the work is around what we call the Core Complex (from the North parking lot to the Gazebo to the playground to clubhouse/pool grounds & parking lot). We will need everyone's assistance in order to complete these projects in a timely manner! Here is what to expect: Roof Replacement (begins January 25th, weather permitting):  Due to last year's hail storm, all 5 buildings are getting new roofs (gazebo, clubhouse, pool house, and 2 storage garages).  What you need to know: January 22th (Friday) at 6 PM, both parking lots will close for Feazel to begin to stage equipment over the weekend.  After that time, no vehicles aside from CAS and the roof workers will have use of either parking lot during the project.  Any vehicles left in either lot after 6 PM on Friday will be towed.

Fencing and Playground Replacement (March):  Luckily, we were able to complete the bid process and get on the vendors' schedules for this work last year!  If not, we might be waiting until much later in 2021.  Our plan is to have this work start in March and be finished and open the new playground in early April.  The exact dates will be sent when we have them.  What you need to [...]

Benefits of Aeration

Since we are in the fall season when everyone in a single family home is planning fall lawn services (aeration, overseeding, and fertilizer), the Landscape Committee has realized there are still some questions. These services need to be done anytime from now until very early November.  Here are the benefits of aeration: Stronger turfgrass roots Enhanced heat and drought stress Increased soil water uptake and use Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere Your lawn will be easier to take care of next spring and summer because of doing this now (and doing the February & March weed treatments). Before aeration: Mow your lawn. The clippings should be bagged, blown or raked off the lawn - this is necessary to maximize seed-to-soil contact This contact is a key factor in successful germination If you sprayed chemicals to kill the weeds, wait 3 weeks before aeration from date of application to aeration Common weeds which all are invasive and will spread easily if your grass is weak: Clover Crabgrass Quakgrass Bermuda grass Aeration packages normally include fertilizer and seeds. After aeration: it is very important to water everyday for at least 20 minutes for a few weeks. The main goal is to keep the ground and seed moist while the seeds begin to germinate. If you have any questions, please ask via Carlie (carlie@casnc.com).  **If your home is rented out during this time, please make sure your tenants are aware that this work must be done at your home or plan a contractor to do it for you.
