Landscaping at the Johnson Road Entrance

posted Apr 15, 2011, 8:27 AM by Richmond POA Secretary

Everyone has probably noticed by now the work which has begun at the main entrance to the neighborhood. The appearance of the entrance has long been a source of complaints so the association made a decision to move forward in making some much needed improvements. One of the most difficult problems that had to be dealt with was the trees planted in front of the fence. Some of the trees were dead, some were leaning, and they were growing too large for their location. Removing them was a big job but now they are gone and will be replaced by 12 Crape Myrtles and 36 Pink Encore Azaleas. The azaleas will stay green year round, and should bloom trough the spring and summer months to add some attractive color. The association contracted with Applaudable Landscaping to do the work, and they will also be trimming all of the entrance plantings at the same time. Combined with the recent improvements to the median we will soon have an entrance which appropriately compliments our individual homes and helps to support our property values. Total cost for the project is $ 1700.00 to remove the trees and stumps, and $4200.00 landscaping which includes 12 Crepe Myrtles, 36 Encore Azaleas, top soil, sod, installation of a water faucet, and daily waterings until plants are established.
