Another Successful Snow Day
Common Area Maintenance Update
The previous inspection from 2 years ago also identified numerous major issues which have now been fixed; for example, there was structural damage to the common area walls and sidewalks. A final outstanding issue was the large and overgrown Oleander hedge on Maple Ave and Warner Rd. The board entered into an agreement with our neighboring HOA to take turns trimming this hedge. Pecan Grove (our neighboring HOA) completed the first trimming; the results before and after are shown below.
Water Conservation Update
The goal is to conserve 15-25% of water versus prior years, while keeping the grass looking good. Our conservation program consists of specialized watering schedules for summer and winter grass, along with an organic soil treatment to prevent salt buildup.
Our landscaping contractor has been keeping a detailed water usage report. Comparing with 2016 and based upon this report, we reduced water usage by 14% from January to March of this year.
