Landscape Guidelines 2007
Landscape Guidelines - original guidelines
These guidelines were established to:
1. Maintain the value, character and appearance of the residential community.
2. Provide a consistent landscaping approach to all homes in the community.
3. Preserve the quality of the natural amenities of our subdivision.
4. Insure that consistent criteria will be applied to all homeowners regarding landscape beds, lawn maintenance, tree planting, removal and pruning.
With these ideas in mind, here are the guidelines:
