Wednesday, April 07, 2021 | Melissa Brock
Landscape services for a Homeowners Association, or HOA, can be costly and labor-intensive. Most HOAs want the entire neighborhood to look amazing: to achieve those results while maintaining a budget, prioritize 4 key elements in your landscape plan to get the most for your investment of time and money.
Identify Key Areas
With summer almost here, prioritizing areas of focus is critical to achieve a great look that most HOAs want.
Add some “wow” to the community entrance(s). The front entrance defines the level of quality that will be maintained throughout the community. A strong seasonal color display will provide impact and visual interest for residents and guests alike. Fresh mulch or pine straw should be used throughout the year to keep this area looking crisp.
Another area of focus is the community or amenity center. The landscaping should be inviting, welcoming people to the common space for activities, meetings, and relaxation, making it a place where the community residents want to gather and share the experience of being neighbors.
