Here are a few tips you can follow to prepare for the winter season:
Winterize outside water spigots
Put away outdoor grills and furniture
Remove outside lighting that may be damaged in icy conditions (i.e. string lighting)
Test your heating, if you have not done so already
Seal any drafty windows
Clean gutters! This will help prevent ice buildup.
The practice green cavity has been graded and drainage installed. Over the next two weeks additional drainage will be installed along the pathway, the area surrounding the green will be final graded, irrigation installed, and the greens mix/pea gravel will be placed. Then sod will be laid and the paver pathway completed.
When completed the putting surface area will be nearly double the original practice green.
FLOTSAM By Cameron Marcelle
The recent no name storm brought about a lot of water, mostly in the form of coastal flooding. Overall, it came and went, and we made out pretty good. The cleanup we anticipated was far greater than what we were left to do. We did have the typical phragmites reeds wash up and mark the high-water line. This happens in the areas that are closest to the bays and marinas, while pine needles, leaves and mulch usually mark the water lines farther away from the water.
While my mission here is to discuss something to do with plants, landscaping, a new project, or something of the sort, allow me to diverge and share with you a couple of new names I learned recently. In a telephone conversation, I had mentioned all the storm debris we were dealing with, and the word “flotsam” was mentioned to me. I felt like the judge from the movie My Cousin Vinny, saying “two what?, what was that word?” I’ve no shame in admitting I wasn’t familiar with that term and was curious and had to look it up. And then I found another word, jetsam. In maritime law, flotsam and jetsam are terms that describe two types of marine debris associated with vessels. Flotsam is defined as debris in the water that was not deliberately thrown overboard, often as a result from a shipwreck or accident. While jetsam describes debris that was deliberately thrown overboard by a crew of a ship in distress, most often to lighten the ship’s load. However, Meriam-Webster also defines flotsam as any floating debris, miscellaneous or unimportant material, or remains. In the googling, I also found that Flotsam and Jetsam are a thrash metal band from Arizona and the names of a pair of moray eels from the movie The Little Mermaid.
While flotsam can refer to the reeds that I was referring to, I was curious to find out if there was another word, more specific to the reeds we must deal with every time we have coastal flooding. The reeds are from phragmites, or Common reed. The only thing I could find was another word I was not familiar with, and a synonym for flotsam, which is detritus. It sounds like a skin problem, but again, detritus is not that specific either, but in ecology detritus is defined as matter that is composed of leaves and other plant parts, animal remains, waste products, and other organic debris that falls onto the soil or into bodies of water.
I’m sure these terms are used quite regularly in some circles, and I apologize if I’m the only one that they sparked an interest in. All I have left is to decide what I say the next time, we must clean up all this flotsam, all this detritus, or all this stuff.
