Weed Control and Landscaping: Don't Let Those Weeds Get Out of Control

In order to maintain our positive and beautiful neighborhood, we ask that all property owners make a continuing effort to control the weeds in their yards.

This is particularly true this time of year as certain weeds (especially dandelions) easily spread with the slightest breeze.  Our Association’s landscaper is required to apply weed control at least once annually and would be happy to do the same for you if you desire (at a cost to you). In addition, there are a variety of products on the market that can also be used without causing a negative impact on our environment.
We respectively request that you inspect your lawn and take appropriate action if necessary.  Your neighbors will be most appreciative.

Landscaping Along East Hills Boulevard


Please note that the HOA has just paid a landscaping invoice of $1500 to clean and repair along East Hills Boulevard.  In addition the HOA paid $185 for stakes that HOA Board President Joe Fogarty installed along the southern entrance of the blvd to attempt to keep cars on the road and not on the grass. More landscaping is scheduled for the kiosk areas. As you may have observed, there are tire makes and a few “ruts” already.
