Currently, the board relies almost entirely on our landscape service provider(s) to recommend species of plant materials based on size, location, life expectancy, ease of care, resistance to disease, resistance to deicing chemicals (if close to driveways/walks), etc. The board then approves these new and replacement plant materials based on funds available from the approved fiscal year landscape budget.
In the not to distant past, we were very fortunate to have had some homeowners with a bit of green thumb or an amateur interest in gardening that have served the community via their volunteer participation in a formal landscape committee.
Unfortunately, it has been several years since the landscape committee has been active and the board would like nothing more than to see it reestablished.
So...are you a homeowner that would like to have an impact on the appearance of the Sarah's Glen community and have a say in the recommendation, selection and placement of landscape features? If so, we want you!
There is a small time commitment involved, but anyone actively participating in the landscape committee has a voice in recommending and helping the board make decisions on all landscape features/plant material throughout the property. FYI, the entire outdoor area of the property is considered common or limited common area, so the results of the committee's participation has the potential to greatly impact the look and feel of the property over time.
Your time volunteering for the landscape committee would generally be spent at following activities:
- occasional "walk-throughs" of the property with other committee members, board members, management company and service providers.
- soliciting and reviewing proposals from landscape providers to help make landscape feature recommendations to the board (within budgetary limits).
- communication with board members/management company.
- participating in occasional board meetings where landscape quotes/proposals are discussed.
Interested in volunteering?? Please let us know via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and a board member will respond to you.
Thanks!! We look forward to your participation!!
