As mentioned in a previous post, Impact Landscaping will address several problem areas throughout the association in 2016. With the early break in the weather, we hope to get a jump on the landscape season, and complete this work before summer.
Some of the landscaping work is part of a three year beautification project to clean and re-plant the large islands located on Lake Terrace and the Silver Valley annex. This work began last year.
Impact Landscaping is thorough in their planning, and always presents us with a detailed, illustrated list of tasks. (Those who wish to do so may download the project overview from our website.)
In addition to the items listed in the project pdf, Board members and representatives from Impact did a walk-around last autumn, and made a detailed list of many common elements that require cleaning, weeding, and re-planting. Several planting beds will be cleaned and mulched, and a pair of smaller, rotting timber retaining walls will be removed completely, and then replaced with graded landscaping.
This is part of the overall plan to freshen the public face of the association, and brighten our neighborhoods.
