East Side Common Area



Our landscaping company has examined the draining problem, and the problem of no grass, on the east side commons area. They have recommended we wait until fall and then grade that area and sow grass with matting to solve the erosion problem. Doing so earlier would get poor results, because planting grass after summer is over gives the new seedlings time to germinate and develop roots. For those of you who live along this commons area, rest assured we will address and correct this problem, sometime around Labor Day of this year.

In the meantime, the landscaping team will be planting a row of Red Maple and Cleveland Flowering Pear Trees along the arc at the top of this common area. We selected these trees because they are fast growing and are known for their sturdiness, ease of maintenance, and beauty. The trees will help with the erosion and will also provide a measure of privacy between the homes surrounding this area.
