Earth-Kind Landscaping Program

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District NO. 146 (FBCMUD146) will be hosting an EARTH-KIND Landscaping Program on Saturday, October 6, 2018 beginning at 10:00am at the Covered Pavilion next to the Welcome Center and pool.  The program will last approximately one-hour and snacks will be provided.

The program is a cooperative effort between FBCMUD146 and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Master Gardeners Program.  Master Gardener Specialist, Peggy d’Hemecourt and Michael Garrett, will discuss using environmentally friendly management practices to produce landscapes that are beautiful, low-maintenance, and sustainable.  The goals of EARTH-KIND landscape are to conserve water and energy, reduce pesticide and fertilizer use and to recycle landscape waste.

This program will help satisfy requirements of the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) Larry’s Tool Box program that incentivizes MUD’s to conserve and promote water conservation initiatives to their residents.  District’s receiving the necessary points are eligible for a discounted water rate the following year.

So please join us for this very informative program on Saturday, October 6th at 10:00am.  In addition to snacks, each attendee will receive a special gift and be eligible for the door prize drawing at the end of the event.  Prizes include rain barrels, gift certificates, plants and more!

To help us adequately plan for the number of participants, FBCMUD146 asks that you please register for this free program by emailing the District’s Common Area Manager sherrieknoepfel@mikestoneassociates.com.  Or you may click on the following website link to register also:  http://www.fbmud146.org/contact/.

Boulevard Fence Replacement Project – Phase I ( Update )

As authorized by the District, American Wall Systems (the Contractor) will be replacing Phase I of the District’s common area fence beginning mid-September 2018. It is anticipated that work will begin along W. Bellfort and progress south along Winston Ranch Parkway.

The Contractor will remove the existing wood fence and begin installing brick fence between the stone columns. When a fence is removed the Contractor will erect temporary chain link construction fence to secure the property. A utility marking service will mark all main utility lines that are located in any easement impacted by this project.

The Contractor requests impacted residents secure pets, clearly mark any private utility lines in the yard (such as irrigation, gas grill, swimming pool, etc.) and turn off the irrigation prior to demolition beginning. The Contractor also requests that impacted residents remove any item attached to the fence, or within five feet of the fence line. Landscaping, decorative items, etc. should be removed or tied back out of the way. American Wall Systems is not responsible for any damage within this work zone. Items within the work zone will be removed.
