Landscaping Update/Notice - Friday, March 10th
There are two Creative Image crews working in the Community today.  One crew finishing up work in the Renaissance area: Sweetwater and Cascade.  Another crew begins edging in the Wynds/Clubhouse section.  This is in preparation for spring mulching to begin Wednesday, March 23, weather permitting.
 
Special note:  Crews will be in the Community tomorrow, Saturday, March 1 to continue the edging and bed preparation for the new mulch.
 
Seeding of the areas along the backside of Englewood  and down the hill to ShadyCove  will take place this week once the drain work in this same area has been approved.  All of this is the result of clearing Ash trees and honeysuckle throughout the entire backside of Edgewood.  This was a very successful project and should be attributed to the coordinated work efforts of Sherdec (tree removal) and Creative Image.
 
More info to come regarding plans for further efforts along the same program.
 
To all the residents……..thanks for your cooperation.    -Beth Stepner
 
2017 Renaissance
During the past couple of years, numerous concerns have been voiced by HOA members regarding the aging and deteriorating appearance of the entire community.  The Board of Directors, while recognizing that portions of the community are approaching 30 years of age, have developed a plan to revitalize the appearance of the community over the next several years.  Included in this plan are the cleaning/painting of all siding and trim, improved drainage, concrete replacement and street resurfacing.  We are now in the fourth year of this project. 2017’s phase of the Renaissance will be on Sweetwater Drive and Cascade Drive in The Cliffs. The painters will post notice at the units prior to the painting beginning. If you have anything on your deck or patio that obstructs the painters’ ability to paint areas of the building you will be asked to move it. We are hoping to begin this year’s painting in early spring and have it completed by mid-summer.   -Klint Yearout / Rentz Management

Spring Landscaping Update
Spring will begin soon and the Landscaping Committee has been busy this winter and we are ready to go. Sweetwater and Cascade was chosen as this year’s Renaissance program. This entails painting of the buildings and updating many common landscaping sections which includes The Cliffs swimming pool. Many trees that have been removed were splitting Bradford Pear trees and diseased Austrian pines. Also, shrubs that respond well to hard pruning will be completed; especially shrubs close to the buildings so not to get in the way of the painters. Completion of the landscaping portion of this year’s Renaissance program will be April 1st.
 
In several weeks, Sherdec Tree Service will begin our annual tree trimming throughout the community. The committee’s focus this season is trimming dead wood, especially in our treated ash trees. Also, any trees that are approaching a building or have out grown their growing space will be addressed.
 
Over the winter, an ash tree removal project happened behind the buildings on Englewood and a select portion of Greens Edge. Along with the removal, we are trying to remove and treat our invasive honeysuckle vines that are strangling our healthy trees and taking over our lawns. There are plans to re seed areas after the trees were removed. We are planning the ash tree removal program for this year very soon. Unfortunately, this removal process is VERY expensive and will take time.
 
Last year, we had an explosion of crabgrass invading our lawns. Tru-Green treats our community and they provided an additional application last year to block the invasion of this grass. There are always many variables that will impact lawn treatments. It could be the amount of rainfall and/or the temperature variations. So our defense this year will involve  changing the sequence of lawn treatments. This will be an area of concern for the landscaping committee this spring and the remainder of the growing season.
 
Within the next few weeks, our landscaping company Creative Image will start their spring bed cleanup. This involves cleaning our mulch beds, cutting perennials and edging. So residents, put your no prune signs out or your flags requesting a no trim. But you should keep in mind, we want a nice, clean property so some requests may be denied by the landscape committee if it’s unsightly and creates a poor “jungle like” appearance for our community.
 
Happy Spring, 
Wayne - Landscaping Chair

Tree Removal
I realize the pain expressed from several residents in response to the removal of trees on Cliffview Drive but we are updating our landscaping on Sweetwater and Cascade.  The trees were either diseased or splitting and several had cracked and rotting crowns. But I do understand, it is still painful to see as it is with the landscape committee.  The committee followed the lead from 2 arborists and removal was their recommendation.  Due to their fragile conditions, they presented a hazard, and could fall, A similar situation is occurring at the end of Oakbrook Drive, close to Pleasant Valley… On a positive note, we are planting 8 trees, enhancing  the mulch beds by the mail and utility boxes, and the Cliffs pool …. So lets be patient and wait until the project is finished by the 1st of April and we can see what the finished product will be.  Thanks.   -Wayne
