Revised grass cutting map

Beginning Spring 2018, our neighborhood grass cutting is being done by two local lawn services:  Thomas Brothers, and, James Robinson.

The Thomases cut the ditches, the well house lot, the picnic area and an area around the neighborhood entrance.  They cut these areas every other week during the spring, summer and fall grass-growing season.

Jim Robinson cuts the big common area — the 13-acre area that contains our septic drain fields.  He cuts this area four times a year:  Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and a final cut before winter.  Grass in this area has a growth spurt in late September-October.  We evaluate the grass height in this area in October and decide when to do the fourth cut in the late fall-early winter.

Here is a map showing the grass-cutting schedule.  PBE Grass Cut as of May 2018

Osprey have returned !!

Sunday, March 25, we were at the picnic area for the first time in a week.  Two pair of osprey were circling around the treetops.  One pair had taken up residence on one of the osprey nesting platforms in Presley Creek adjacent to Lot 52.

Osprey . . . also called “Fish Hawk.” Scientific name Pandion haliaetus.

The flock of Canada Geese normally in Presley Creek was nowhere to be seen or heard — probably inland feeding.

A group of 16 Bufflehead were in the Potomac about 100 yards offshore, feeding.
