Lawn & Appearance Maintenance

Lawn and Appearance Maintenance List

It is the Owner’s responsibility to keep all shrubs, trees and grass neatly trimmed, properly cultivated and free from all trash, weeds, and other unsightly materials. The Owner is also required to maintain the grass located behind fences and on easement property. Flower gardens in existing flower beds or around trees are highly encouraged (at your own cost and maintenance) and do not require Architectural Committee approval.

To help you we have compiled a list of regular maintenance items that needs to be done throughout the year.
