                                  Tree identification begins with dividing trees into three categories: those that lose their leaves

                                                How to Remove Weeds!
  The good news is that improving lawn health by proper watering, mowing and fertilizing will greatly reduce weeds. If weeds are fairly minor
  (rather than overtaking the grass) start by simply weeding by hand.

  Still got weeds? Part of the solution is figuring out what's making weeds possible and changing things around so that weeds will face a tougher
  time. Here's a quick tutorial on ways to keep weeds at bay:

  If clover is taking over your lawn, there's a good chance your soil lacks nitrates which encourages grass growth. In fact the easiest way to control
  clover is to promote healthy grass!

   To remove clover:
                                                                  Or          If you have a reoccurring issue with clover:

  1. first till the soil                                                      1.Use a product called "strike three" which is a broadleaf
  2. add compost to increase the soil's fertility                             herbicide. It consists of 3 active ingredients. There are many
  3. Finish off by reseeding bare spots with grass.                           products available to home owners which would work well.
  To prevent clover:                                                          2.Be diligent through the growing season. It's not a hard weed
                                                                              to kill, but new patches crop up quickly.
  1.   apply a slow-release organic lawn fertilizer in the fall
  2.    leave clippings on the grass during the summer.

  To rid your lawn of dandelions, remove the flower heads before they go to seed. Dig out the roots with a dandelion weeder or use the Dandelion
  Terminator. To prevent existing weed seeds from germinating, apply corn-gluten meal in early spring.

  Mow your grass too low and you'll be doing crabgrass a favor. The low grass allows sun to reach the weed's seeds. To eradicate, completely re-
  move plants before they go to seed and then sow grass seed. You can prevent crabgrass by allowing your lawn to stand tall at three inches. You'll
  need to keep removing weeds from the reseeded spots to allow the new grass to become established.

   A stretch of Novelty Hill Road, east of Redmond, is one of two road corridors in East and Southeast areas of
   King County that will receive traffic safety improvements because of federal funding from the Rural Safety
   Innovation Program (RSIP).
   The grant will provide 80 percent of the funding to complete the improvements on Novelty Hill Road from the
   vicinity east of Redmond Ridge down to West Snoqualmie Valley Road Northeast (near Duvall).

   The county’s goal with this RSIP funds on Novelty Hill Road, is to reduce collisions in the af-
   fected area by at least 30 percent. To achieve that, they’ll introduce ways to remind drivers to
   adapt to driving conditions.

   Improvements include:
   · installing warning flashers that detect the presence of approaching vehicles
   · driver feedback signs that measure
   · display the speed of approaching vehicles
