The Gardens HOA DCRs were amended in December 2020, to remove the requirements for the HOA to provide optional maintenance services for lot owners. However, these changes to the DCRs do not remove the requirement that all owners are responsible for maintaining your yard (improved lot) or vacant (unimproved) lot to the standard established for your lot (ref: DCR, ARTICLE V, MAINTENANCE, Section 2. Association Remedial Maintenance.). For yards, this is weekly care as necessary during the growing season (typically nine months from March to November). For vacant lots, including construction lots, this is a minimum of twice-monthly cuttings.
If you do not want to do this maintenance yourself, there is a list provided on this website to aid you in contacting vendors to perform these services for you. The URL for that webpage is:
