Landscape Plans for 2006

Our current landscape committee and Rob Hiller have put together a plan for improving our community common areas. Take a peek here.

Diagrams of projects for community areas are as follows: Turnstone Court, Lapwing Court, the Avocet entry, and a plant wish list.

August Yard of the Month

Comments from this month's winners:

We are honored in being selected as the HOA yard of the month though we are novices in the gardening world! Our back yard is our haven of peace and serenity. We cleared our upper back yard above our retaining wall and added a flagstone path, an iron gate and arbor, as well as created a fung shei octagon garden with raised beds for herbs and annual vegetables. Garden benches and seating areas were added as it is here we feel one with nature and appreciate the beauty as do our two lazy cats. We taught ourselves through previous membership at the Norcross Garden Club, reading gardening books and visiting many web sites -- one of our favorites, which includes bi-weekly reminders for the garden, is www.nationalgardening.com. We have future plans to install a waterfall and pond.
