Landscaping Updates


Palm trees will be trimmed Dedember 18-23.  Berm plants and trees still under warranty on the Compass point berm will be replaced at no cost.  A quote has been requested for non-thriving plants on the Westport berm because they are out of warranty.  Two foxtail palms, at unit 2901 and 2801, will be replaced by December 23.  Once plants are replaced on berms, they will be mulched.  Mulch will be spread in the remainder of the community after painting is complete.  The committee will also begin the next phase of shrubs and plants after painting is complete.  At the end of December the landscapers will be trimming plants and shrubs away from the buildings to allow for painting.  Residents are asked to remove all electrical cords, Christmas lights and decorations from those areas.


Landscaping Report - The Compass Point berm project was completed in May at a cost of $63,309, of which $20,000 was paid by the Master Association.  During the summer stones were installed behind the buildings by the lanais and some areas were filled in with sod to minimize the need for mulch.  The cost was approximately $15,000, $4,000 of which came from the landscaping budget and the remainder from the operating budget.  The palm trees will be scheduled for trimming in December.   Landscaping Committee was requested to get a quote from American Allegiance for rocks or stones to be installed in front of grill area as that grassy area becomes unsightly from heavy usage during season.

The attached document below contains several pictures of the berm's new look.  Check them out!
