The change in lawn maintenance service last Spring has been beneficial. There have been a number of comments about the extra care that is being given to our property. We are working with arborists to keep our trees in good shape. We have some concern with the one oak at the 4623 side of the courtyard entrance. That is being monitored. (The oak that was on the 4621 side was removed early last year.) . The irrigation system was checked and repaired where needed.

The street side landscaping has been undergoing upgrading. There are plans for the addition of additional shade tolerant trees along the sidewalk in front of 4623. The back alleyway has had the irrigation system significantly cut back to only the trees and shrubs. The remainder of the area is covered with river rock. Per the annual meeting request, there will be a conversation area added along the back alleyway facing the golf course.

The courtyard lighting change over was completed in April. This also involved some needed electrical upgrades. The illumination the new lights provides appears to cover a wider area than the previous fixtures. New lighting along the alleyways has a larger area of coverage. All the lighting is now low energy LED lights.

  • Throughout the year the wild creatures are also exploring their territories. This is a reminder to keep garage doors closed when the garage is not being used. As the dryness of summer develops, many animals search for water and coolness. During Fall, creatures look for places to live during the winter. In the Winter, creatures look for better homes. And, in Spring, there are the offspring and the cycle starts again..
