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.

Winter Lawn Care
Posted on Jan 20th, 2022
In most parts of the country, lawn grass goes dormant in the winter. It's too cold for any grass to grow, so we wait patiently for spring. However, lawn care doesn't quite end in the winter. Try these tips to keep your yard healthy and ready for Spring.
Apply fertilizer with a spreader. Apply only the recommended amount. Be careful because too much fertilizer can burn your grass.
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 Cool-Weather 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 Spring.
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.
Lower the height of your mower
The last few times you mow, lower the height of your mower by a notch or two. Excessively long grass can smother itself, cause disease, and is at risk of damage from freezing and thawing 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 snow cover or exposed 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.
Monitor weather conditions
Turf is very resilient and can tolerate an extreme winter, but certain conditions can be harmful in the long term. Winters 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 hardened off, once you've "put the lawn to bed" properly, you can focus on keeping your sidewalks clear and building snowmen. Just remember to keep an eye on the weather.
