Lawn care services will begin April 18th. To ensure your home is provided lawn care services here are some helpful tips to prepare your lawn:
- Remove toys, trash, patio furniture, grills and trampolines from all grassy areas on your lawn mowing day or the day before. Unprepared lawns will not be mowed.
- Remove pet waste from your yard. Crews will not mow lawns that contain pet waste.
- Remove decorative items, such as solar lights, on your lawn mowing day. Crews will not trim around items that may be easily damaged.
- Place pets indoors on your lawn mowing day, to ensure their safety.
- Ensure that your backyard fence is unlocked to allow crews to access your yard. After lawn mowing has been completed, make sure your fence is closed before allowing your pet to re-enter your yard.
We understand if you prefer to maintain your own lawn. If you prefer to mow, please contact your Neighborhood Office so we can add your home to the no-mow list and our lawn mowing crews will know to skip your lawn. If you choose to place your home on the no-mow list, you will be expected to cut and trim your lawn as often as—and at least to the standard of—our commercial lawn mowing service.

In recognition of Read Across America and Dr. Suess birthday, Cat in the Hat will be at the Munson Heights Community Center to take photos with our residents. So bring your cameras and drop by and say hello. This event is free and open to all on-post housing residents.
In recognition of National Nutrition Month, we will have a special story-hour. Join us at the Munson Heights Community Center on Thursday, Mar 31 at 9:00 am. Author, Patricia Mathisen will be reading "Adventures of Little Chefs."
Getting ready to PCS? Deploy? Retire? Make sure to stop by the Community Office to provide a 30-day notice, along with a copy of your orders.
Ensure you have a smooth transition by following these steps once you are ready to move:
Complete a Notice to Vacate Form at least 30 days prior to move out and submit to the Community Office.
All personal items should be removed from the home and the home should be left in surface clean condition.
Ensure your home is prepared for transportation pick-up to prevent delays in your PCS move.
If you have any questions about the move-out process, please stop by or call the Community Office and we’ll walk you through it.
Now that spring is in the air it is nice to get outside and enjoy the warm weather after a long, cold winter spent inside. To get you started, here is one outdoor project you might want to consider tackling:
A pressure washer can make quick work of cleaning the outside of your home, but be careful since the extremely high pressure can damage wood and other softer materials. Also, if you don't have a pressure washer, you can still get the job done with a regular garden hose and adapter that can be purchased at a low cost at Lowes or Home Depot.
One of the most popular alternatives to power washing your siding is detergent, bleach and water. If your white siding is beginning to look a little green, then this is the route you want to go, as it is very powerful against mildew and mold. Always use caution when dealing with a harsh chemical like bleach.
Mix the following household ingredients in a garden sprayer, which you can get for under $20, or find in your garage.
- 1/3 cup powdered laundry detergent
- 2/3 powdered household cleaner
- 1 quart liquid laundry bleach
- 1 gallon of water
While working with bleach always use protective clothing and rubber gloves and cover or wet down any plants or grass with water before applying. For more useful tips for cleaning the exterior of your home click here.
Make sure your thermostat fan is set to "auto" instead of "on." This will ensure your home heats or cools only when necessary.
