Beyond Lawn Care
Wooded areas, meadows, streams, and ponds are features that add value to our community. We’re fortunate to have some of these features because they enhance property values, increase aesthetic appeal, improve our environmental quality, eliminate noise and wind, and reduce our energy bills.
The responsibility to maintain our natural areas goes beyond the capabilities of our lawn care provider, so it’s up to us to properly maintain all our common ground—-landscaped and natural.
That’s why the association pays attention to water resources and quality, wildlife habitats, and species diversity. We believe that proper maintenance and management will benefit the local ecosystems and save the association money.
Remember, environmental stewardship begins at the community level.
