BRICK FENCE REPAIR PROJECT HAS BEEN COMPLETED!

 

The District has contracted with Colorado Landscape Solutions to provide repair work to the brick fence-line along the District’s right-of-ways. The repair construction project started in May and is now complete.

The major component of repair was the installation of flagstone on the top of the fence to prevent future damages to the brick and mortar. The top row of brick was removed or repaired, along with crack repairs and brick replacement, as necessary. Minor landscaping improvements was also performed along the public right-of-way.

VANDALISM

Vandalism increases the cost of maintaining our parks by damaging play equipment. Graffiti is unsightly.

Talk to your kids about not committing vandalism and encourage them to report any vandalism.

If you witness vandalism or see areas that need repair, please contact Howard Buchalter.

PET WASTE

All owners are required to clean up after their pets. Pet waste smells, can spread germs, and can get into the Cherry Creek Reservoir via storm drainage if not properly disposed. Pet waste is a problem for our children playing in the parks. It is a problem for landscape crews. It increases the cost of our landscape maintenance. There are waste pick-up dispensers located in each of our parks and on the south side of Orchard Road.

To report overfull containers or damages, please contact District Management or JBK Landscape.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR

PETS ON-LEASH!

Owners are also reminded to keep their pets on-leash at all times in District parks and trails for the safety and comfort of other users.

Japanese Beetle

The Japanese Beetle is a very damaging insect to turf and landscape plants. Recently there have been more beetles along the Front Range that are causing a lot of damage. Adults and larvae can cause damage to landscape but the types of damage are different.

Adult beetles cause very obvious damage and are usually more of a concern. The adult beetles eat leaves, buds, and flowers of many plants. Rose flowers are more prone to damage. The larvae eat the roots of grasses which makes it harder for the grass to get water.

 

There are a few ways to treat Japanese Beetles. Traps are available as well as individually picking the beetles off the plants. Another effective way to treat for the beetles is to spray insecticides.

 

According to the article ‘Japanese Beetle’ by W. Cranshaw, “…control of Japanese beetle larvae in a yard will have very little, if any, effect on the number of Japanese beetle adults feeding on trees, shrubs, and garden plants‘. It is important to treat for both larvae and adult beetles.
