Spring Is Here! Let's Talk About Landscape Care!

Weeds

Regarding thistle and other noxious weeds, it is imperative to start treatment early to control weeds before they grow in size and spread seeds.  It is equally important to continue weed treatment efforts throughout the year to maintain control.

To that end, the Conservancy offers this reminder and request, that each homeowner actively treat their respective lots to prevent the spread throughout the community.  Such a spread limits the resources and nutrients required by other, desired plants and trees.

Grass

The Design Guidelines require natural grasses at homesites to grow undisturbed, according to their natural growth patterns (see Section 5.9).  Being aware of the potential risk this poses to wild land fire issues, the Conservancy Board of Directors offers some direction to also preserve the mountain aesthetic for which Promontory is known:

  • If the grass is green, let it grow freely.  When it is becoming dry, feel free to cut and remove the debris across the whole of your lot.  Such a strategy would allow for a few trims throughout the later summer season.  Weekly cutting to less than four inches is not approved outside of wild fire “fuel break” areas.
  • During the spring and summer seasons, natural grass can be cut in a “tapered’ fashion, away from the home, such that it is shorter near the home, but longer as it extends toward the property line.  The shorter grass should still have some length (i.e., it should not look like a manicured lawn or golf course) and should gradually extend to the longer length.
  • Continuously maintain “fuel breaks” by removing dead or dry landscaping.

Trees

To best protect the substantial investment made in the trees at your homesite, please consider how your trees might benefit from fertilization and other treatments.  Spring is a natural time to review your plant health, and the right plan can ensure a long, healthy life for your trees.

If you do not have a plan in place for nourishing and irrigation, the Conservancy has identified several providers who are willing to offer assistance:

  • Healthy Trees For Life: 801.731.2492
  • Park City Trees: 435.640.5825
  • Specialized Pest Control & Lawn: 435.563.2643
  • Falling Waters: 435.640.8247
  • Green Leaf: 435.645.9342

Lighting Guidelines

The Conservancy offers a reminder that exterior lighting at individual homesites is permitted only under limited circumstances.  Exterior lighting can have a disorienting effect on migratory birds.

All exterior lighting must conform with the following Design Guideline provisions, as directed by Summit County:

  • (i) such light must be of a low-level, subdued intensity;
  • (ii) the bulb must be fully shielded with frosted glass so as not to be visible;
  • (iii) lighting must be directed downward; and
  • (iv) all lighting must be pre-approved by the Architectural Review Committee.  Please see Section 3.13 of the Design Guidelines.

The Conservancy’s Board of Directors has instructed staff to monitor the community for lighting.  Some Conservancy members will be notified of violations.  Accordingly, please be aware of how your exterior lights are presently displayed and adjust as necessary.

Any questions regarding the design and display of these lights may be directed to Christine Morr (435-333-4067).

Drive Slow. Protect Our Wildlife.

One of the best things about living in Promontory is sharing our space with incredible wildlife – rabbits, porcupines, squirrels, and especially this time of year, deer and elk. While we love seeing them in our yards and open space, seeing them on our roads is a different story. Each animal reacts differently to approaching cars and it’s best to let the animal clear the road first before passing. PLEASE, for your safety and the preservation of our animals, use caution and SLOW DOWN.

Help Us Save Our Trees!

The conifer and deciduous trees that line our streets and surround our homes are primarily Aspen trees. They are having a difficult time due to several types of fungus and disease that has been spreading quickly throughout the development. In the past few years controlling the situation has been
proven difficult primarily due to the way the fungus spreads. Severe outbreaks can effect the overall health of the tree and eventually cause death. In order for us to get total control of the situation, we have to spray as many of our trees as possible,  including those around the homes.

Spring Clean Up In The Cabin Neighborhoods

Cabin Owners, we have started the Spring cleanup in all five cabin neighborhoods. You will see the crew from Mounteer, trimming your trees, cleaning up debris and getting your irrigation started.

May is also the time that we are spraying the spruces and aspens for insect and disease. Our arborist and his crew are working hard to bring our trees to a very healthy state.

If you have any questions concerning your cabin yard maintenance please contact Joe Ellis.
