The yards are judged by a panel of neighbors to decide who will be awarded the WHCA Yard of the Month. The program runs from April to August with awards given out for May through September. The winner is awarded a plant from our sponsor Wal-Mart Garden Center on Dorchester Road. A sign will be placed in the winner's yard. The winning yard for June belongs to The Rivera Family on Loggers Run in Ricefield. The winner for July is The Anderson Family on Bideford Court in Moultrie Place. Congratulations to all homeowners.

Welcome Wagon

We wish a warm welcome to our newest families: The Borcher Family in Indigo Ridge, the O'Neal Family in Plantation Pointe. The Williams Family in Ricefield. These new neighbors have been visited by the WHCA "Welcome Wagon". They were presented with a bag of goodies from local merchants. If you are new to our neighborhood or know someone who is, please call us with an address. A name is helpful but not required. We need everyone's help in keeping up with our new neighbors.

For more information, you can contact your representative or call Donna at 760-1330 1. Check out our web site and e-mail her at

Heat Safety

Dehydration occurs when the output of water is greater then the amount of water taken into the body. Did you know? You need at least 6-8 glasses of water each day. Older adults are less likely to feel thirsty. Mixing juice with water can be very beneficial. Symptoms of dehydration include sunken eyes, dry mouth, decreased urine output, decreased tears, dry, red skin, dizziness, nausea, and headaches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please get out of the heat and sun; drink plenty of water, and rest. If the symptoms continue, seek the advice of your doctor.

Animal Alert

Don't forget the other members of your family... the dogs and cats. If your animals are outside, give fresh water with ice cubes at least 2-3 times a day.

Covenants Corner

This is a new section added in the last issue. Our intent is to inform everyone (including persons who rent) the covenants and restrictions for Windsor Hill. Every homeowner agreed to obey the covenants and restrictions when they purchased their home. These are taken word-for-word.

Swimming Pools.

Swimming pools shall not be nearer than six (6) feet to any lot line (and must be located to the rear of the main dwelling) and shall not project with their coping more than two (2) feet above the established lot grade.

Walls and Fences

Boundary walls may be erected and hedges grown but not higher than three (3) feet from the street right-of-way to the minimum building setback line. Fences , boundary walls and hedges shall not exceed six (6) feet in height from the minimum building setback line to the rear of the property. No fence may be constructed within ten (10) feet of the front corners of any building.

Unsightly Materials

No trash, rubbish, debris, junk, stored materials, wrecked or inoperable vehicles or any similar unsightly items shall be allowed to remain on any lot. However, the foregoing shall not be construed to prohibit temporary deposits of trash, rubbish, and debris for pickup by governmental or similar garbage and trash removal service units. In the event any owner of any developed lot fails or refuses to keep such property free from any weeds, underbrush, or other unsightly growth, then the Developer, or its successor, may enter upon such property five days after posting a notice thereon, requesting the owner to observe this paragraph, and upon entry remove all such unsightly items or growths at the owner's cost. No such entry shall be deemed a trespass. Developer's notice shall be sufficient, if it states in substance: "Please remove this unsightly item or growth: (Describe here) within five days or Developer shall do so at your expense. You are violating the Restrictions." Developer shall have a lien on the subject property for any such costs until paid in full by the owner.

Punchlist -- Things that need doing this month

Raise the Blades.

Protect your lawn from scorching summer sun by taking less off the top when mowing. Experts recommend making this cutting-height change in July and August when your lawn is most vulnerable to extreme conditions. The exact height you cut the grass will depend on the type of grass you have. Adjust the wheels on the mower or the cutters on the tractor to move blades to a higher level.

Clean Vent Fans.

Dirt and lint deposits inside a bathroom vent fan can impair efficiency, encourage mildew growth and shorten the life of the unit. To clean the fan, remove the vent cover and wipe the inside with a damp rag. A cotton swab or an old toothbrush works well on fan blades. If the fan still seems ineffective, you can get information on fan sizing and operation from Broan (, 800-637-1453).

Protect Plants.

If you're going to be away from home for an extended period, move containers and hanging baskets into shade or dappled light. Even sun-loving plants can handle some shade for a brief time. Ask a neighbor to stop by and water plants as needed. Clip off any flowers in full bloom or past bloom. This dead heading keeps them from going to seed and encourages more flowers. Before you go, water trees and shrubs thoroughly and renew mulch around plants to retain moisture and keep the soil temperature cooler.

Planning a Trip?

Summer time is when most people take their "annual" family vacation. Did you know you can call the Dorchester County Residents Watch at 873-5111? A deputy will check-up on your house while you're away.
