Q. My lawn is full of weeds what can I do?
A. The best way to prevent weeds is to not mow your grass too short. Keep your lawn mower on the highest setting. This will still cut down weeds, while letting your grass grow and become healthy, which will help to crowd out the weeds. If you cut your lawn too short, the grass dries out and dies more quickly and the weeds increase. Treat your lawn with the recommended fertilizers each season and water well when necessary. Remember that many weedkillers are toxic to pets and children, so always ask advice and read the instructions when applying weedkillers to your yard. Ask for more help at your local garden center.
Q. Who can use the dog park?
A. Any responsible Eagle Crossing dog owner is allowed to use the Dog Park. You must have your dog under control at all times and pick up any waste. Your dog must have all the proper vaccinations up to date. For a complete list of Dog Park rules please see the full page on our website.
