Re: Traditions Landscaping

There have been some questions regarding upcoming landscape events, primarily mulching, pruning, and mowing.  Due to the rain and blustery weather, the application of mulch has been delayed somewhat but should commence soon.  We are unable to honor special requests for those who have inquired about opting out of mulch and other services.  We have a very fair agreement with Diamond Landscapes and in order to keep costs reasonable, Diamond must be as efficient as possible. That means that we are unable to customize community-wide mowing and/or applications of weed killer, fertilizer, and mulch. An exception to this is that residents may privately contract or apply mulch on their own prior to the community-wide event, and no additional mulch should be added by Diamond Landscapes.  Likewise, Diamond has worked with us in allowing residents to individualize pruning; some residents opt out completely and the rest of the residents have the opportunity to mark the plant material that they do not wish to have pruned. As long as it is feasible, we will continue to offer these options. Summer pruning typically occurs in June and July.  We will give a two week notice and provide landscape tape once we are notified of the pruning dates. 
As homeowners at The Tradition at Park's Edge, we agreed that responsibility for upkeep of the exterior and green space of our units would be turned over to our HOA. This allows us to maintain consistency and uniformity throughout our community. Keeping within the constraints of our budget requires a standardized approach to landscape maintenance. 
Please let a member of the Landscape Committee know if you have any further questions or concerns.

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.
