The Weybridge Board want to educate our residents with the Muirfield Handbook rules and regulations that have an impact on our community.
Outdoor objects or highly ornamental objects must be carefully considered for impact of the natural environment of Weybridge and Muirfield Village. All ornamental decorations are subject to approval by the Muirfield Design Control Committee. Statuary, fountains, sculptures and other decorative objects are generally prohibited unless confined to a front entry, deck, patio or private living area, or strategically incorporated into a landscape area. These decorations are discouraged unless they supplement the natural theme. Decorative flags, banners, or other types of signage are prohibited on the exterior of properties.
Yard Garden flags and team school or professional team flags are prohibited in the front of Weybridge homes. They are allowed in patio area or at rear of homes.
Attachments to the mailbox such as banners, decorative covers and advertisements are prohibited. Residents must maintain shrubbery and vines around the mailbox unit so that the home’s address is in clear view from the street.
Bird feeders are prohibited in the front of homes or anyplace that can be seen from the street. Weybridge has had problems with skunks and squirrels causing damage to homes. A wildlife expert advised us that bird feeder attracts these pests.
Wind chimes are prohibited in the front of homes or anyplace that can be seen from the street. Permanently placed bird feeders, statues and lawn ornaments must be approval by the MDCC before installing on the property. They are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Any question feel free to ask any Weybridge Board member.
The Weybridge Board has received a few calls about Weybridge residents leaving your garage door left open during the day for a long period of time. The Muirfield association newsletter and a notice from Dublin Police has informed us of several break ins due to Garage doors left open.
Please read the Warranty deed section 2 paragraph “O” which states:
No garage doors may be allowed to remain in open position at any time except when the doorway is being traversed.
To explain this, this rule unless you are working in the garage, the door must be closed. This is to deter thieves. and a rule which the Weybridge Board monitors.

Weybridge Residents are responsible for the watering of their Lawns
When to Water the Lawn
If you find your lawn has taken on a grayish cast or appears to be dull green, it’s telling you that it needs water. You can also check your lawn by walking on it: If your footprints don’t disappear quickly, it’s because the grass blades don’t have the needed moisture to spring back. While it may seem like you can head out to water your lawn anytime during the day, your lawn actually needs more specific care. Watering in the morning (before 10 a.m.) is the best time for your lawn; it’s cooler and winds tend to be calmer so water can soak into the soil and be absorbed by the grass roots before it can evaporate. If you must water in the evening, try between 4 and 6 p.m. which should give the grass blades time to dry before nightfall. The later you water, the greater chance of disease becoming prevalent in your lawn. It’s worth noting, though, that you don’t necessarily have to water your lawn. Lawns are resilient. Established and properly cared-for lawns can survive weeks without water by going dormant (when the lawn turns brown), then recover once the rain returns.
How Much Water to Use
When watering an established lawn, it’s typically recommended to water until the top 6 to 8 inches of soil (where most turfgrass roots grow) is wet. Most lawns need 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week—either from rain or watering—to soak the soil that deeply. That amount of water can either be applied during a single watering or divided into two waterings during the week. Just be sure not to overwater your lawn.
How to Tell If You’ve Watered Enough
Check the soil: To see how long it will take to soak the soil, check it every 15 minutes during your first watering by using a screwdriver to test how deep the water has moved. Mark the time once the soil has been soaked to a depth of at least 6 inches—that’s how long you’ll need to water your lawn each time in the future. Short on time and simply want to know if you can skip watering for the day? Use this rule of thumb: If you can’t easily stick that screwdriver 6 inches deep into the soil, you need to water.
Brightview Landscape will be spraying for Spider Mites and Bag Worms tomorrow. Sorry for the short notice but we want to get it quickly stop these pests .
Bagworm caterpillars make distinctive 1.5 to 2 inch long spindle-shaped bags that can be seen hanging from twigs of a variety of trees and shrubs. Sometimes the bags are mistaken for pine cones or other plant structures. Bagworms prefer juniper, arborvitae, spruce, pine, and cedar but also attack deciduous trees.
Spider mites are tiny web-spinning bugs that eat sap from the bottom of leaves. They are not insects but rather arachnids, which means they’re in the spider family. Spider mites attack trees and garden plants, making the leaves look stippled, yellow, and weak.
