Sweetwater Helpful Tips

December Landscaping

Winter is the time to start preparing for spring and if you can't wait to get back to doing yard work, don't worry. This is an ideal time for many tasks that will help ensure success in your landscape in the upcoming season.

Automatic irrigation systems for homeowners can be shut off for the season as long as it continues to rain. Be sure to water about 10-15 minutes every couple of weeks if there is no significant rainfall. Plants and turf still require minimal water during the winter months. If you don't intend to utilize your irrigation system, be sure to run it for 3-5 minutes once a month to keep it in working order and to check for leaks or breaks. Remember to water according to current water rules as set by your water supplier.

Winter is the best time of the year for pruning of Oak trees to prevent possible spread of Oak wilt. Remove deadwood, crossing branches, and raise canopies as needed. Use pruning paint on all cuts greater than 1" in diameter. Complete all tree pruning before the trees come out of dormancy.

Ornamental Beds
Cut back perennials to about 2"- 4" above the ground after the second hard freeze of the year. Removing dead wood from some perennials before the last freeze may remove the last line of defense the plant has from frost damage. Cut back ornamental grasses to 10" - 12" above ground.

Fertilize ornamental beds with balanced slow release fertilizer. Look for a Nitrogen/Phosphorus/Potassium ratio of 1-1-1.

Deadhead (Pinch blooms off) winter annuals such as Snapdragons, Pansies, Dianthus, and Cyclamen. Fertilize winter annuals with a high Phosphorus fertilizer to keep the bloom cycle going.

Minimize broadleaf weeds using weed controls or hand pull weeds such as Dandelion and Clover. Pre-emergent herbicides applied in February will be more effective if the turf areas are free of weeds. Please try to refrain from using "weed and feed" products as they have been known to have an adverse effect on trees. Begin cleaning up leaves and debris in shrub beds in preparation for February pre-emergent herbicide applications.

After shrub beds are free of weeds and debris, apply pre-emergent herbicide, now and again in February, to minimize weed seed germination. Add enough new bark mulch to maintain a 2" - 3" depth in February or March. (Note: If your property has Live Oak Trees, you might wait until the trees have finished shedding their old leaves to avoid raking/blowing new mulch away).

For now, make sure to keep the leaves and "winter" debris cleaned up. Do not allow your turf to suffocate under excessive amounts of leaves. This can cause dead areas in your turf. Start planning now for renovation of your lawn if it didn't survive the drought. You may want to consider more drought tolerant grasses and plants. Spring is the perfect time to aerate and fertilize your lawn. Used in conjunction with a balanced conventional fertilizer, or an even application of organic compost, core aeration may be the best thing you can do for your lawn in any season.

Efforts by SAFER 71 have brought

down the speed limit on Hwy. 71 from

Bee Cave to the Pedernales River.

Sweetwater Residents Driven to

Create a Safer Highway 71

White ribbons wrapped on trees and streets around the
Sweetwater neighborhood during November served as a
reminder of the tragic loss of a beloved resident. Members of
the newly mobilized Safer 71 organization want to ensure
this tragedy is not in vain.

Safer71 is a non-profit comprised of residents of
Sweetwater and surrounding neighborhoods. The group
aims to achieve a zero-fatality road corridor on SH71 between
Southwest Parkway and the Blanco County Line. This stretch
of highway has seen 20 auto-collision deaths and
128 serious injuries since 2014.

Working with municipal and county governments, traffic
jurisdictions, and local neighborhoods, Safer 71 aims to provide
the necessary research, advocacy and outreach programs to
ensure that SH71 becomes a road that people can feel safe
driving on every day. Their charter focuses on a comprehensive
approach to the problems: Engineering,
Enforcement and Education.
Safer71 asks that you join the effort by supporting, promoting
or volunteering with its efforts. Visit www.safer71.org to learn
more, stay informed on how you can help create a safer
community for all residents and travelers on Highway 71.
