We are keeping our LOHG neighbors informed about what has and is going to be happening with the Wildflower Project.
On October 8th 2016 the crew shown below reseeded wildflowers on two of the lakes adjacent to Pearland Parkway on Hidden Glen. We chose a flower mixture of seeds that would not grow taller than 2 feet. We received funding for the seeds from LOHG HOA and from Keep Pearland Beautiful (KPB). 30 lbs. of sand was donated by Home Depot. At that time, on the advice of the horticulturist at the Wildseed Farm in Wimberly, the mowing crew was instructed to start the "no mow" schedule. These two lakes have noticeable growth on them now, which will allow the seeds to germinate and take hold. The other two lakes adjacent to the Parkway, per the horticulturist's instruction, were started on a "no mow" schedule on Nov.10th 2016. The signs, donated by KPB, were placed on all four lakes to inform the community about the project. At the present time we are praying for good weather for the wildflowers to grow. The regular mowing schedule will resume after the wildflowers have bloomed. We began this project the spring of 2013. This is the 3rd year we have seeded. Our plan for the spring of 2017 is to preserve the natural Texas wildflowers and bring them alive within our neighborhood for all to enjoy.
Thanks to LOHG HOA Board and KPB for supporting this project. Thanks also to the volunteers who helped seed on that very hot day and to all our neighbors for being patient and understanding. We are very proud to have been part of the KPB Beautification Award given to the LOHG community in 2016.
