! PROPOSED NMCA BYLAWS AMENDMENT

Register your vote on this change to our civic associations bylaws. If you are interested, the full bylaws can be found here.

Coexisting with the Deer

Environment Chair Dave Miller on deer fences, defensive landscaping and other tips for dealing with the deer in Norbeck Meadows (news flash - they aren't going anywhere!)

Neighborhood Plant Exchange

Norbeck Meadows resident Dave Miller is helping to facilitate a neighborhood plant exchange. Hostas too big to manage? Need to split your daffodils? Trade your "extra" plants with your neighbors – it's a great (and inexpensive) way to increase the variety of plants in your yard while helping your neighbors do the same!

Below is Dave's list of plants available for adoption:

  • Blue, white Siberian iris* (many)
  • Yellow daffodils* (many)
  • Oregon grape holly (Mahoney ilex)* 2-3 ft. (2), seedlings (20)
  • Forsythia 2-4 ft. (many)
  • Red maples 2-4 ft. (32)
  • Green Hostas 2-3 ft. (7)

    * Deer resistant. Note: the best defense against deer browsing is an 8 ft. high deer fence - contact Dave for more info on deer fences.

If you are interested in offering plants of your own for adoption or if you are interested in, contact Dave at dam12390@yahoo.com or 301-774-4905.
