Pot-Nets Communities

 
"In the 60's and 70's, motorbikes were the mode of transportation for children. It seems like every home, and maybe every child, had a motorbike - 50ccs up to 100ccs. Back then we had the dirt pits which were located behind the compound. Sometimes there would be as many as 20-30 motorbikes at one time. There were a few accidents and injuries. It became a problem when the kids would ride around Pot-Nets on the roads in groups of 4-5-6 or so, going down the road side by side. Many would remove their mufflers. It was becoming a problem. I put the word out that I wanted to talk to the kids at The Rock. I met on a Saturday during the middle of the day and over 100 children showed up. I informed them of the problems we were having and that they were putting their privilege of having motorbikes in jeopardy. I wanted to keep the motorbikes as part of Pot-Nets, but within a year or so after the meeting, we had to ban motorbikes and switch to golf cars as the mode of transportation. I made the mistake of allowing gas powered golf cars. Once again, the kids would remove the mufflers. It didn't take long before we banned gas and only allowed electric golf cars. 

The golf cars today have become a way of life for residents and their families. Close to 90% of residents now have golf cars."

Fall Clean Up
By Cameron Marcelle
Most of the work for next year’s lawn and garden starts in the fall.  Fall is a great time to plant spring blooming bulbs, divide and replant perennials, introduce new plants, and rejuvenate the lawn. 

We used to say that sanitation was the key to reducing insect and disease problems for next year and make sure you clean your landscape up like you were cleaning your living room, but that has changed. We’ve realized that when you remove the leaf and plant litter in the landscape, you’re not only removing and/or killing overwintering insects, you’re also removing much needed insulation for insects burrowed in the ground that rely on the leaf litter to survive the winter temperatures, which includes some bees.  The dead brown plant parts from most perennials that are left standing all winter are an important part as well. They may contain seed for birds or offer hiding places for other insects.  So, again it is a change in our mindset, what is attractive and what is not. 
 
Some plant debris should be removed and composted, like peonies, roses, and fruit trees which keep their pest and disease problems in their fallen foliage. In these instances, it would be best to remove and compost.  If you must remove other dead or dying debris, do not be tempted to remove foliage too early.  Any green foliage is still manufacturing food for next year’s growth.  This is especially true for ornamental grasses.  These grasses, like turf-grass, can either be cool or warm season grasses.  Cool season grasses start to grow in early spring, may go dormant in summer depending on water, and may remain semi-evergreen over the winter.  Cool season grasses may require more frequent division to keep them looking good or else they might die out in the center of the plant.  Warm season grasses grow well in the heat.  This year’s growth will brown out in the fall, earlier than their cool season cousins.
 
Ornamental grasses do not need to be cut down before winter. In my opinion, they are more attractive when left standing and usually are planted with the thought of still enjoying the brown mass of leaves in winter.  More than this, the foliage helps to insulate the crown of the plant in winter.  You should cut back the foliage to about 4-6 inches in the spring before growth resumes. When foliage is removed, spring growth will begin earlier. Old foliage left on the plant can delay the crown’s warming and subsequent growth by as much as 3 weeks.  Division depends on the spacing and visual appearance of the plants as well as the overall health. Plants suffering from die-out in the center should be divided to improve appearances. Division is done in the spring before growth resumes or in the late summer or fall after the growing season. Plants that bloom late could be divided in the spring.
 
Most importantly, do not forget about watering.  Depending on the weather, all perennials, trees, and shrubs need a thorough watering before the ground freezes, especially evergreens which demand more water than other deciduous plants.
 
Fall is also the perfect time for aerating and over-seeding lawns.  Your last mowing should be at the regular height that you maintain throughout the year.  Do not cut it short for the winter or leave it long. 

 
"Thank you so much for going above and beyond when we had the main water line behind our house in Pot-Nets Bayside break. Our lot looks better than ever!"
- The Conti's, Bayside Residents
"Mary, Shirley, and Michael were excellent to work with"
- Carl, New Pot-Nets Homeowner
 
[To Bonnie & Tina of Pot-Nets Homes]
Just wanted to send you both a quick note and thank you for everything you both did to get our house closed.  I know it wasn’t the easiest closing ever,  especially adding in my crazy OCD personality.  Bob and I seriously appreciated everything you both did.  If we ever end up buying back in DE, we will definitely come back to Pot Nets!
- Doreen, Previous Pot-Nets Resident
 
"I would like to compliment the staff you have had working in Seaside.  Starting from the crew who removed the trees, the crew who removed the fencing, those that leveled the field and add topsoil and now the crew who are installing the split rail fencing, all of these staff have been exceptional. I’ve never seen a crew work so fast and so hard. Additionally, I had the opportunity to interact with several of them and each one of them were outgoing, friendly and polite.  The gentlemen who did most of the leveling and top soil work really was exceptional. The crew removed the eyesore and it looks great!  The only problem is that now I’m going to have to make my area look as nice (LOL)."
- Peter, Pot-Nets Resident
 
"Love when my family come to visit and are able to ride the golf car and my daughter can enjoy taking her dog to the dog park. My grandchildren enjoy the new park! Very friendly neighborhood."
