It’s that time again!
Time to spray the noxious weeds, they’re starting to grow. We have a few aggressive weeds in our neighborhood that can get out of control in a short period of time. (See details below) Please remember that each lot owner is responsible for weed control on their property. You can do this yourself or hire someone. Your property will never be free of weeds unless those around you treat their land as well. Please spray/control for noxious weeds on your property all the way to the street, including the right of way.
CTRMD has hired Chris Edwards with Cut Below Lawn Care to spray noxious weeds on Timber Ridge common property, mow grass and other handyman needs. Chris’s contact number is 970-764-0789 if you would like to hire him to spray your weeds or other lawn care/handy man needs you may have.
Colorado’s Timber Ridge Metro District(CTRMD) provides lot owners with free chemicals for spraying. You will receive (Freelexx Brand 2, 4-D herbicide) with a Surfactant Premier 90 and blue dye. Please see attached file with Label and Instructions. You can get them from Bob Hines by texting Bob at 406-581-3925, 1211 Cool Pines, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring two small plastic bottles to put the chemicals in. They are concentrated and must be mixed with water in a pump sprayer. (Please TEXT Bob no phone calls please)
We need Volunteers to spray the right of way on our streets. If you are interested in Volunteering please contact Bob Milford

We will have a short noxious weed eradication training and give out herbicide on Thursday , May 25th. Meet at the clubhouse at 9:00am. Please bring two small plastic bottles to put the chemicals in or your sprayer.
Some of you may not be familiar with the noxious weeds that grow in our neighborhood. The weeds that we are mostly concerned with are Thistle, Common Mullein, Yellow Toadflax (Butter and Eggs), Leafy Spurge and Curly Dock. See links below for more information on each species.

Yellow Toadflax: https://www.swcoloradowildflowers.com/Yellow%20Enlarged%20Photo%20Pages/ linaria.htm#vulgaris Glyphosate (RoundUp) works better for this weed than 2,4-D.
Leafy Spurge: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/agconservation/leafy-spurge If you discover this weed on your property, you will need a different herbicide than 2,4-D. Contact Bob Hines.
