Diamond Landscapes plans to begin the contracted spring pruning of bushes and shrubs throughout the Tradition neighborhood on Monday, June 25th, weather permitting.  As we have offered in the past, residents may exclude specific bushes by marking them with colored tape.  Beginning Monday, June 18th, this tape will be available on these 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 as much tape as 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 Thursday, June 21st, and you will not need to mark any plants.  Diamond employees will have instructions not to trim any bush or shrub in your yard.
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. 
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.
