Royal Oaks Rye Grass Overseeding

Dear Royal Oaks Residents,

 The Royal Oaks Board of Directors has decided to NOT allow the residents to over-seed with Ryegrass for the second year in a row. The 5 members of the Board have made this decision with out input from the entire community.

 This community has over-seeded in the winter since it was created...until last year.  The Board of Directors said it would only be for one year to let the Bermuda grass grow back thick. Although we have noticed no difference in the health of the Bermuda there was an increase in spring weeds.

 There are two ways to go through the fall, winter and spring. Both have some costs associated with them. By over seeding you will keep the property looking its best (much better than Bermuda) and not over seeding will require you to spend money fighting weeds and applying pre-emergence in a brown lawn. If Ryegrass is not put down the Bermuda will go dormant and weeds will take over during the rainy season. The Ryegrass helps prevent weeds because it is so thick and will choke out any that may try to grow by not allowing them to reach the soil to germinate.

 Ryegrass over seeding is just one way out of many that we can keep the property values up. Don’t allow our wonderful community to be degraded little by little over time. By signing this petition, you make your voices heard and make sure that the welfare of our community is kept to a high standard.

 If you would like to keep the community looking its best through out the fall, winter and spring months please sign this petition. Signing this petition will help relay your opinion to Royal Oaks Community Owners Association

 We want your opinion; please follow the instructions below to be heard.
