While everyone in the desert welcomes summer rains, the monsoon storms can cause damage to your community’s landscape.
Last month, two monsoon storms hit Vistancia, leaving some damage. DLC focuses on clean-up and repair after these storms. For immediate emergency aid, we have personnel on call 24 hours a day to handle the most pressing effects of the storm, such as trees blocking streets or sidewalks. Following our initial response, a full scale cleanup will generally begin the following morning.
Unfortunately, we do not have services available to remove homeowners’ downed trees. We are only authorized to clean up common areas. If you see storm damage in your community’s common areas, report it to Vistancia Community Management.
You can help maintain your yard during the monsoon season by assessing your trees, pruning exceedingly thick foliage and having dead branches removed. In order to conserve water after a storm, check the status of your irrigation controller, observe the condition of your plants and check the moisture of your soil.
The best way to check soil moisture is to stick a screwdriver in the ground. If you are able to insert the screwdriver easily to approximately six inches, there is enough moisture in the soil. If you have difficulty, you may need to apply more water.
