The Corvias sponsored Yard of the Month program will host a Holiday Yard of the Month!
The Yard of the Month Program will reward those who make a special effort to improve their yard and beautify their home, while remaining in compliance with housing and post regulations. Holiday decorations will be considered, though not mandatory. One winner will be named per community in December. Each Yard of the Month winner will receive a recognition letter from the Fort Riley Garrison Commander, a Yard of the Month sign to be displayed in front of the home, and a gift certificate.
Judging and Rules:
Judging will be conducted the first week in December. To be eligible to participate, yards must be in full compliance with requirements set forth in the Corvias Military Living Resident Responsibility Guide.
Winners will be notified in the same month as recognition. A resident may win only once during the 2016 Yard of the Month program, from summer until winter.
Winter weather in Kansas can be unpredictable at times and we want residents to be informed and prepared for the upcoming winter months.
The time to prepare for winter weather is here. To protect your belongings this winter, following these simple steps:
- Disconnect hose from all outside water faucets now to help avoid frozen pipes.
- If you plan on leaving your home for an extended period of time, keep the heat on to prevent pipes from freezing. Leave your thermostat set between 60 and 65 degrees. We encourage you to consider registering your home for House Watch with your Community Office. When you register your home, the Community team will make a routine check of the property and can take appropriate actions as needed.
- Following a snow or ice storm, Corvias Military Living's contractor will clear or treat all streets, public sidewalks and parking lots in each community. A system is in place to clear main roads first to allow emergency vehicle access and then proceed to clear all residential streets.
We request your patience and help during the times roadways are being treated by limiting travel. Please park vehicles only in approved parking areas and avoid blocking sidewalks.
Residents are encouraged to keep their private porch, sidewalk and driveway free of snow and ice to avoid slips and falls. Complimentary traction control material will be available at your Community Office.
Our lawn care service provider will be applying treatment to lawns in November/December, as weather conditions allow. Check the schedule below to see when your home will be treated.
Treatment areas will include the front and side yards of all homes as well as community entry areas. To make the application process as efficient as possible, we ask that you please remove all personal items from your front and side yard turf areas. Following the application, please allow approximately 30 minutes for the treatment to dry before allowing children and pets on the treated areas. The treatment application is not harmful to your family or pets. The drying period will heighten the effectiveness of the treatment and help you avoid tracking the material into your home. The product labels and material safety data sheets will be available at your Community Office for further information on the products used.
Fertilizer schedule is as follows:
November 14-18 - Historic Main Post and Colyer Manor
November 21-25 - Forsyth
November 28-December 2 – McClellan and Ellis
December 5-9 - Warner Peterson
Fall Cleanup will occur between November 1 to December 20, however this will be contingent on weather conditions.
