IMPORTANT MESSAGES TO CARLSBERG RESIDENTS:
Texas Phoenix Palms In Our Neighborhood
You may have noticed a number of declining/dying Palm trees in the neighborhood. There is a pest, most likely a plant hopper, that is infecting our Canary palm trees and is causing homeowners a lot of stress. When palm trees are infected with Texas Phoenix Palm Decline, or TPPD, they drop all their fruit and turn brown/gray and the fronds drop down. Please remember other type palms can also be infected by this and other diseases. TPPD is spread by a bug that hops from palm to palm, bites the plant, then essentially backwashes a bacteria into the palm tree's system, killing it within a matter of months.
We are suggesting that if you have a palm in decline you should have that palm tree and its root ball totally removed. If you leave the stump and have it ground down it could still harbor the bacteria, infecting other palms in the neighborhood.
Here is a link to the web site about TPPD.https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pp163

Witches’ broom is a symptom of stress found in
woody plants, mainly trees, but also affects
shrubs as well. This includes deciduous trees
and shrubs as well as conifers and evergreen
varieties. The stress results in a deformed
mass of twigs and branches, which appear
broom-like in appearance. As brooms were
once fashioned together from bundles of twigs
and since witches were presumed to be responsible
for anything unusual, these abnormalities
became known as witches’ brooms.
Witches’ broom is a nickname for Sphaeropsis
gall, chichis a fungal ailment affecting shrubs,
trees and bushes, including citrus, bottle brush,
crepe myrtle, ligustrum, oleander and holly.
The fungus gets its name from 1) the swollen
and enlarged portions of diseased stems and
branches, and 2) the galls produced on older
branches and trunks.
Witches’ broom can occur for several months to
several years, and while it may be unsightly to
some people, it really poses no serious threat to
the tree or shrub affected. There is currently no
cure or treatment for witches’ broom. You can,
however, prune out the broom growth several
inches below the point of its formation, if desired.
Weeding and Edging Schedule
Floralawn will weed and edge landscape beds every other mowing. The map belows indicates when your home will be done.
Weeds will be removed from all plant, tree, and flower beds 18 times per year. This incorporates 2 times per month during the growing season, and 1 time per month during the non-growing season on an as-needed basis. Manual hand-pulling and chemical herbicides will be used as control methods.
Floralawn is spraying our yards per the following schedule:
Fertilization: Every even month or every service
Weed Control: Every even month or every service
Insect Control: Wall to Wall - Feb, June, August, and
October - April and December, treat as needed
Fungicide: As Needed
We are asking residents to submit only ONE(1) request for specific trimming per month. This will allow Floralawn to better plan their trimming schedule and avoid problems should they miss a request. If you have a specific issue, Floralawn will be glad to take a look at it.
Effective December 1, 2015:
FloraLawn is returning to the previous policy of
trimming all shrubs on a monthly basis for
everyone. You will no longer have to put in a request
for normal shrub/tree trimming. Because
hibiscus blooms constantly in Florida, there is
no one good time to trim it. All trimming, including
the hibiscus, will be done monthly when
your quadrant is scheduled.
We remind residents to mulch their flower/shrub beds and make sure the sprinkler system is functioning properly. Refreshing mulch on a regular basis minimizes weeds and as we get into the dryer season, our nice green lawns will need additional water.
To opt out of any or all landscaping services:
If you want to opt out of any of the landscaping services provided by Floralawn (mowing, trimming or spraying), print this form out and make your choices. Drop completed and signed form at the HOA office.
Opt Out of Landscaping Services Form, click here.
Requests for individual spraying will be handled as part of Floralawn’s regularlyscheduled spraying program. The scheduleis posted in the Clubhouse. Again, if you have a specific problem, they will look at it. If the problem is covered by our contract, it will be handled. If the problem is not covered by our existing contract, Floralawn will provide the requestor with a price to repair or eliminate the problem.
In regards to damages to resident’s property caused by Floralawn’s equipment, we remind residents that NO repairs will be paid for after-the-fact. If you believe Floralawn’s equipment damaged something, (i.e., a sprinkler head) they will have to look at it and make the repair. If you repair the problem yourselves, then NO reimbursement will be made.
