The Vineyards at Wyndham Creek is a 188 unit, Single Family Home Community located in Sherwood, Oregon. Our beautiful neighborhood was built by Centex Homes in 2005. The neighborhood is a family-oriented community just off Hwy 99 with wide streets and green common areas.
The area is within walking distance to Sherwood’s Edy and Laurel Ridge schools, and the soon to be brand, new High School off Elwert Road. Our community is not far from Lady Fern Park and backs up to Sherwood’s wonderful Cedar Creek Trail. The quiet and desirable surroundings make it a great place to live where you can call home.
The Community is managed by a professional management company and governed by a Homeowners Association. Our Board of Directors meets quarterly to discuss Association business and meeting times and location is on our web site.
Please feel free to contact us with your comments, suggestions or would like additional information.

Fall Lawn Care
Posted on Sep 14th, 2022
Fertilize & Water
Turf is very resilient and can tolerate an extreme weather but certain conditions can be harmful in the long term. Summers can often be unpredictable and may put your lawn through some extreme conditions during the course of the season. The best thing to do is make sure the grass has plenty of water and kept free of weeds/clover.
Aerate the Lawn
Provide some extra air for grassroots by aerating your lawn. Use a spade to take out spikes of soil across your lawn to make holes for planting seeds.
Spread Grass Seed
Purchase grass seed that is for "cool season" or "cool weather" on the package, such as most fescues. You can sprinkle the seed over the lawn with the same spreader you used for the fertilizer. Try to spread the seed evenly so you won't have clumps of grass later in the Fall.
Clean it up
It is extremely important not to leave debris, leaves, or toys out on the lawn. These things can smother the grass, create disease conditions, and invite insects, mice, and other damaging pests.
Raise the height of your mower
Raise the height of your mower by a notch or two as you prepare for Fall weather. Excessively long grass can smother itself, cause disease, and is at risk of damage from excessive rainy conditions. However, do not cut the grass so short that you scalp it, thus exposing the crown of the plant to extreme conditions.
Be aware of traffic
Under heavy rain or exposure to the elements, dormant grass will tolerate a moderate amount of traffic, but a heavily worn path will be slower to green up in the spring and cause compaction.
Curb Planter Strip Maintenance
Wednesday, September 14th to Saturday, December 31st at Vineyards HOA
Property owners are responsible for maintenance and cleanup of the curb planter strips that are abutting the lot or adjacent to their property. These locations contain will street trees, grass, organic material and shrubbery. If a property owner wishes to remove or replace the planter strip materials, approval must be granted by the City of Sherwood and the Homeowners Association.
In addition, any removal of street trees or trees located on the frontage of a property lot requires permission and a permit from the City Community Tree Board in addition to approval from the HOA. Trees that are removed are required to be replaced with a tree from the City’s approved list of tree species. If the trees and/or roots are creating utility conflicts, an exception and approval will need to be obtained from the Community Tree Board and the HOA to not replace the tree.

Vegetation – Low Hanging Limbs
Is the vegetation next to the roadway along your property a hazard? It may be if it restricts visibility at an intersection, obstructs the view of a traffic control sign, impedes traffic or pedestrians from traveling unencumbered.
The City of Sherwood requires property owners to keep sidewalks and the public right-of-way adjoining their property free from rocks, leaves, yard clippings, ice, snow, and all other debris. In addition, property owners must keep the sidewalks, streets, and public right-of-way free from projecting or over-hanging bushes, brush, or limbs. Limbs will be trimmed at a height of at least 14ft above the street and less than ten feet above the sidewalk. Property owners are responsible for both clearing and disposal of debris.
