"It takes more than a green thumb to keep our common areas looking nice!"
Mowing and Maintenance
The HOA grounds include: along Sandy Ford Road and Lowland Dairy Road, the entrances into the neighborhood, and the common areas including the pool/playground. These areas are contracted for maintenance with a commercial landscaping company. A new company was contracted March 2014 and any questions or concerns regarding their services should be directed to the HOA Management Company.
All undeveloped lots are maintained separately by the builder.
Homes in forclosure are supposed to be maintained by the bank. If you have a concern about an unmowed forclosure, you can check with the HOA management company to verify that the bank has indeed taken title to the home and then report your concern to the City of Mount Holly. Their online connection is at www.mtholly.us. Click the GoMH link at the very bottom of the home page, then click on Grass Violations to make a service request.
If you have a streetlight out, please click the link below to report the repair needed directly to Duke Energy. Thank you!
The purpose of the landscaping committee is to insure the continued attractive appearance of the common grounds and entries, either by direct involvement, or by responsibility for overseeing and monitoring the performance of those responsible for the maintenance of these areas.
Duties and responsibilities of the Landscaping Committee may include the following:
Prepare or assist with the development of the landscaping standards and maintenance requirements for the Association.
Monitor the performance of the landscaping contractor to insure compliance with terms of the contract.
Participate in the actual maintenance of the common areas in varying degrees. Duties may range from planting annuals at the entries or weeding of shrubbery beds.
Assist in the development of any future or long range planting or landscaping plans for the Association including requesting additional funds from the Board to undertake such capital improvements.
The Landscape Chairperson communicates and reports directly to the Board of Directors on all issues related to this committee.
If you would like to volunteer to chair and start this committee, please email the Board of Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
