With spring and summer just around the corner, now is the time to step outside and see what may need to be done to your yard to ensure that you are in  compliance with your Governing Documents.

Below are items for you to review and also polite reminders of other commonly forgotten items.

  • Growth of grasses in lawns must be properly maintained and not to exceed four (4) inches in height and need to be trimmed and edged.
  • All landscaping located on any lot not maintained by the Association must be properly maintained at all times by the Lot Owner.
    • Homeowners are responsible for keeping their lots (including the area between the sidewalk and the street) well maintained. This includes grass, shrubs, trees and plantings. All of these are to be neatly mowed, edged, trimmed, watered, fertilized and free of trash, weeds and other unsightly materials.
    • With the warm weather, your grass will need watering, ~ 1” per week is recommended. The best time to water is early in the morning.
    • Your grass will also need fertilizing. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for application.
        • Water + fertilizer = mowing
          To help your grass get through the warm weather, don’t cut it too short. Cut it at a height of ~2.5” to help shade the roots from the sun and conserve the water.
        • If you mow once a week, pick up your clippings, as they will be too large to decompose and will clump on your yard.
        • If you “cut and drop” you will need to mow every two or three days so the clippings are small enough to easily breakdown. This returns a lot of the nutrients back into the lawn, but it requires more frequent mowing.
        • After fertilizing and mowing, please sweep the sidewalk to prevent staining and to prevent people from slipping on the clippings
      • Water + fertilizer = weeds too
        • The best weed prevention is a healthy lawn, or weed control herbicides.
        • The best way to get rid of weeds is unfortunately, manual removal
    • All shrubs, trees, grass and plantings of every kind on his or her lot must be cultivated pruned, and kept free of trash and other unsightly materials.
    • All improvements upon any lot not maintained by the Association shall be kept in good condition and repair and adequately painted or otherwise maintained by the lot owner.
    • Keep Garbage Cans out of public view except on trash day.
    • Before starting any exterior project, please make sure to submit an ARC Application before you start your work.
    • Please make sure to pick-up after your pet.

The HOA strives to maintain a consistent look throughout the Community. By maintaining your lot it keeps the community clean and our property values at the best they can be!

The Board will be inspecting all lots this Mid March to ascertain adequate maintenance is being performed and notifying homeowners of any lots requiring attention.
