Overseeding Lawns in Anthem Parkside

September 29th, 2015

Overseeding Lawns in Anthem Parkside

It’s that time of year again here in Anthem Parkside – time to overseed for that beautiful lawn we Phoenicians like to show off while the rest of the country is showing how buried there cars are in the snow drifts.  I know many of you have seen the landscapers traversing our local fields recently in preparation of this process.  Our clients who are new to the area, especially those from colder climates, are not too adept at overseeding their lawns  and often call with questions.

Overseeding Lawns in Anthem Parkside

Well, we have both warm and cool growing seasons here in the NW Phoenix area, with two distinct styles of grass growing in each.  Because we have yearly temperatures swings from 27-degree winter nights to 117-degree summer days, there is not just one grass type that will remain green and healthy all year long.  Instead, Anthem gardeners who choose to have year-round green grass must overseed their warm-weather bermuda grass in fall with cool-season ryegrass.

The Anthem HOA does mandate that if you have front yard lawns, they must be overseeded for the winter in an effort to keep our homes looking nice.  The bermuda grass will continue to grow and stay green so long as overnight lows to not dip down near frost levels and you are feeding it regularly – perhaps even into the Thanksgiving season.  However, I usually follow the lead of those more intelligent that me.  So when I see the Anthem Parkside professional landscapers beginning their overseeding season – even those greenskeepers at the Anthem Country Club – I usually tell myself that it’s time to get ready myself.

PREPARATION

  1. Overseed mature lawns between late September and mid-November, when nighttime temperatures drop below 60 degrees.
  2. 4 to 6 weeks prior to overseeding, stop fertilizing your bermuda grass.
  3. Cut irrigation frequency in half a few weeks before your overseeding date.
  4. Stop mowing your lawn one week before overseeding.
  5. The day of overseeding, mow bermuda-grass as low as your mower will go—preferably down to one-half inch high—and remove the clippings from the lawn.

OVERSEEDING

  1. Spread ryegrass seed in amounts specified on seed packaging.
  2. Rake in the seed to promote good soil contact.
  3. Cover seed with one-quarter inch of weed-free forest mulch, composted steer manure or grass clippings.  Top-dressing helps maintain moisture and moderate soil temperatures needed to promote seed germination, and deters birds from feeding on the seed.  (and they will show up like no one’s business!)
  4. Water 3 to 4 times daily for 5 to 10 minutes until seeds germinate in 5 to 7 days.

RYEGRASS CARE

  1. After ryegrass begins to establish, around the third or fourth week, gradually start reducing irrigation to every 3 to 7 days in November and December, then every 7 to 14 days for the remainder of the season, depending on local conditions and rainfall. For healthy ryegrass, irrigation must run for longer periods than the original 5 to 10 minutes, allowing water to soak 4 to 6 inches deep with each irrigation.
  2. Do not mow until ryegrass grows 2 inches tall; then mow lightly, no lower than 1 ½ inches tall. After ryegrass establishes (each plant has 3 or 4 shoots), it can be mowed to a lower height, if desired.
  3. Do not fertilize until after the first mowing. Feed monthly with a complete fertilizer.

If this all sounds like to much work for you to deal with – many do! – just check in with us, and we will be happy to give you a few key referrals to gardeners with know and love who would be happy to assist.  Are you interested in moving to Anthem Parkside?  We can help with that, too!

Oh, and then there’s the crowd, like us, who just isn’t into putting that much time, money and effort into having a nice lawn.  If this is you, then you, too, are a perfect candidate for artificial turf products… but that is a whole other topic for discussion.  Enjoy your beautiful lawns Anthem Parkside!

Anthem Days Returns

March 20th, 2014

 

Anthem Days

The end of March 2014 ushers in another Anthem Days’ celebration for the community of Anthem, Arizona and the surrounding NW Phoenix Valley.  This year marks the 15th Anthem Days event and is packed with all the typical fun and revelry that those of you who have been to one before have come to expect. One could argue that Anthem Days is Anthem’s signature festival with it being the longest running annual event that it celebrates.  The fun begins on Saturday, March 29 from 10:00AM – 4:00PM and repeats on Sunday, March 30 at the same times.

This two-day event has a plethora of family-friendly activities scheduled:

  • local business expo
  • glass blowing demonstration
  • carnival with vending and rides
  • a kids’ zone with inflatables and bounce houses
  • food court with a beer garden
  • craft vendors
  • the Eggstravaganza egg hunt (sponsored this year by CCV Anthem)
  • live musical entertainment
  • salsa making contest
  • $10,000 half-court shot contest (sponsored by OSR Physical Therapy)
  • Emma’s 5K/10K runs
  • Anthem Neighborhood Watch 911 Simulator and Child Fingerprinting
  • Daisy Mountain Fire Department Demonstrations

Anthem Days

Anthem Days

There are several other events that take place both days such as World War II airplane flyovers.  For those that are not as familiar with all the businesses Anthem has to offer, many of them have booths set up where you can meet up and discuss what they have to offer all on the same area on the grass.  There really is no better way to see several vendors all in one day while you merely walk around the fields of Anthem’s community park!  Many of you reading this are probably not used to seeing such lush green rye grass this time of year.  Well, come on our to Anthem Days and experience for yourselves how great our little city is here in NW Phoenix.  This festival is open to everyone.  Admission and parking are both free.

Come on out and meet new friends, say “hi” to old friends, and just get reacquainted with why you love the community of Anthem, AZ.  Oh, and if you find that you want to learn more about our community and how you, too, can find a house to call “home” in Anthem Parkside or Anthem Country Club, we can probably help you out with that, too!  Cheers!

Unique finding while showing homes for sale in Anthem today…

June 20th, 2013

It doesn’t take long when out showing homes for sale in Anthem AZ to see some unique items out for display in the seller’s house.  You see everything from weird paint color choices and carpet selections to things hanging that typically are found on the floor to window treatments thought only to be seen in a Broadway play.  You never think to yourself, “Wow, I now have seen it all!”  This is because the last “head turner” only serves to prove to you that you have many other homes with which to see the insides of in the NW Phoenix area, and any one of them is ready to entertain you!

So this brings me to today’s unique find…

Oh, and I should also tell you that not all of what is seen is something one would classify as, “I cannot believe they did that to their house!”  More often that not, it’s, “That is so cool.  Why didn’t I think of that?”  The ladder is what brings me to todays diatribe…

I am out showing my buyer a few homes in Anthem AZ this morning, and we came to one of our final selections.  (There are not a whole lot to be seen these days, as many of you know!)  The listing agent meets us at the door for a bit of a “guided tour” of this very nice home, and I notice that the kitchen has two refrigerators in it.  This is normally not something to notice other that the fact that this particular home for sale in Anthem AZ is only around 1,300 sq. ft. – rather small to require two refrigerators in my book!  To top it off, the other fridge is being placed in the home’s kitchen nook!

Upon closer examination, I see that this is going to be one of those new “ah-ha’s” for me today!  The extra refrigerator is being used as a cold distiller and has even been modified to include four separate taps… very cool.  The sellers are avid beer lovers and have gone to great lengths to instill this passion into their daily lives.  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)  The seller’s agent went on to tell us how the sellers were recently married and served their home brew to all their guests – some 100+ people!

You can see in these quick photos that there is a good deal of science that goes in to these unique flavors of beer.  I must say, not being an avid beer enthusiast, myself, I was quite impressed with the effort this couple displayed in their beer-making passion.  Though my buyer client chose not to place an offer on this home in Anthem AZ, it was fun to see another unique aspect to an Anthem Parkside home for sale.
