AROUND BRAMBLETON


INSIDE BCA

Sand Volleyball Court - The construction of Legacy Park’s new sand volleyball court has been completed. The court is open for residents to use, but please note that there will be some additional grading and landscaping occurring around the court. The Association is drafting some basic rules for this amenity which will be posted at the court and on our website once finalized. A resident-initiated Facebook page B_Volleyball has also been launched to spark resident interest and discuss pick-up games and related topics. Questions pertaining to this project can be emailed to CIP@brambleton.org.

Trail Connections Installed - The Park 3 trail connections have been installed and are open to the public. However, there may be some final grading and landscaping occurring around the trails. Questions regarding these connections can be emailed to CIP@brambleton.org.

Bagworms: What Are They and How to Get Rid of Them - Recently a Brambleton resident brought to our attention a sighting of bagworms on her neighbor’s bushes. Bagworms (also known as case moths) are the nemesis of evergreens and can also attack deciduous trees. Bagworms encase themselves in a protective coating made from tree leaves and will lay their eggs inside a distinctive sack, making bagworms difficult to kill. To save your trees from this threat, learn more about the bagworm life cycle to time your attack properly (click here for more information). Cold weather does not kill bagworms, and an infestation will never go away on its own. We encourage residents to monitor their landscaping for signs of infestation and act to prevent irreversible damage to the trees.
