Community Rules and Reminders

Landscape Expectations


If you have flowers or shrubs in your landscaping beds, you must keep them under control and free of weeds. Shrubs and trees should not be allowed to overgrow the space they are in where they cover up windows, grow over the sidewalk, etc.

Weeds must be pulled frequently to maintain a neat and orderly landscaping bed.

Please do not allow anything on your property that holds water – flower pots, bird bath, children’s pool, etc. as these will attract mosquitoes
