Diamond Landscapes plans to begin the contracted fall pruning of bushes and shrubs throughout the Tradition neighborhood on Monday, November 6th, weather permittingAs we have offered in the past, residents may exclude specific bushes by marking them with colored tapeBeginning Friday, October 27 th, this tape will be available on these landscape committee front porches:  119 Tradition Circle (David O’Neal), 4149 Tradition Way (Carl Boyer), 4203 Tradition Way (Patsy Martin), and 4619 Walnut Creek Drive (Frankie VanderWier).  Please tear off what you need to mark the plants you do NOT want pruned and leave the rest for others.  If you wish to opt out of this pruning entirely, please email this request to Frankie ( by Wednesday, November 1st, and you will not need to mark any plants:  Diamond employees will not trim any bush or shrub in your yard.
On a later mid-winter date Diamond will conduct a two-three foot hard cutback of bushes and shrubs over four feet tall, so none of these tall specimens will be trimmed during this November service.  The maturity of our plant material, plus the mild, wet year, has led to rather exuberant growth, particularly of hydrangeas and viburnums.  Our professional landscape consultants have advised us that winter is the best time of year for this cutback deemed necessary to the plants’ overall health.  Again, residents will be notified and have the opportunity to mark tall plants they want to exempt from this process.
As always, the Board reserves the right to prune plant material that poses a structural threat to homes or adjacent paved areas.  Our certified arborist, Beth Warner, is now in the process of trimming overgrown magnolia and holly trees throughout the neighborhood. 
The remarkable beauty of our community’s landscape can be attributed only partly to the mild, rainy weather.  The diligent efforts of many of our residents to plant and nurture trees and flowers in their own yards and in common areas have greatly enhanced our surroundings, and we thank you!

Letter from the Board
Your Board of Directors has three areas of concern we would like to share with you.
Architectural  Modification  Requests  (AMR)
In order to make any addition or changes to the exterior of your unit, you must submit an AMR form to the Board for approval. This includes pergolas, screen rooms under existing roofs or under pergolas, and sunrooms. Paver patios are approved on a separate form.
The AMR form is available on our website ( and at the CMA office (1795 Alysheba Way, Suite 3103). On the AMR form, you will be asked to supply specifications, floor plans, and elevations. This form also states that required permits must be obtained from LFUCG, Division of Building Inspection. LFUCG regulations specify that the permit may be issued to a licensed contractor, but the OWNER must acknowledge issuance of said permit. In fact, our property and casualty insurer also requires evidence of permit issuance.
Failure to comply with these requirements may have serious consequences for homeowners. The Board of Directors will be compelled to notify the Division of Building Inspection that appropriate permits were not issued. Additionally, insurance compensation may be compromised if your addition was constructed without proper permit acquisition.
Satellite Dishes
Recently, several residents have inquired about the installation of satellite dishes.  These devices may be attached to the chimney or mounted on a pedestal in your yard, but they may NOT be attached to the roof.  Damage to the roof is a legitimate HOA concern (meaning, of course, all of us would pay).
Big Trucks
Since our blacktop lanes are narrow, their use by oversize vehicles causes problems. Turf damage from tires treading on grass, two-way traffic issues, physical damage to the blacktop surface, and bumping into residence structures have all occurred in the past, especially in areas of all three Phases where multiple turns must be negotiated.
If you expect delivery of large items such as appliances or furniture, please ask your seller/deliverer to use a small truck if possible, or park in the entrance cul-de-sac and use a dolly or hand truck to reach your home.
As always, we strive to spend money wisely and protect property values. Please feel free to contact any Board member for questions or clarification concerning this notice.
