Important Covenant Enforcement Information

Covenant Reminders:

Please remember to follow our Residential Improvement Guidelines when making changes to your yard. Below are a few tips regarding trees, lawns and fences.


If you need to replace a tree, they need to be the correct species of tree located on schedule 5 of the plant palette located here. They also need to be planted with the following size requirements: Deciduous trees - 2.5" caliper, Ornamental trees - 2" caliper, Evergreen trees - 6' height minimum.


Lawns must be watered and maintained. Each owner shall maintain all landscaping on their lot in a neat and attractive condition, including periodic and horticultural correct pruning, removal of weeds and debris, and replacement of landscaping. This applies to the front, back and side yards as well as the street/tree lawn area. 


Regular physical and aesthetic maintenance of fencing is required. All fences must be stained using one of the the approved stain colors shown on Schedule 2 of the covenant document and sealed with a clear waterproof sealant. Decks may be finished with clear semi-transparent sealer, stained to match a cedar tone, an oil based wood finish or a similar product that matches. The decks may also be painted to match the body or trim color of the home. Please review the covenant document here for the full list of painting/staining requirements.

Park Update
