The Landscape Committee met 5/11 and have agreed that we may have been over aggressive in some of the areas we agreed to cease mowing

We will address each area and determine where we need to return to previous cutting limits and begin cutting these areas ASAP.  This reduction will represent an annual saving of 13K in grounds maintenance.  The Committee agrees the maintenance of the Highlands is paramount.  We will not cut areas previously cut on steep grades as a personal safety consideration.

Questions and concerns can be addressed to Lacy Gray, Chairman of the Highlands Landscape Committee - suzturtle69@comcast.net.

The landscaping looks horrible.....that's the only way to put it.  If any homeowner decided they didn't want to mow their grass on a step grade it wouldn't belong becfore they received violation notices.  This mess is saving 13k?Huh?  What in the world is the HOA doing with all this new revenue from all the new homes/lots that have been added over the past few years???

The Board and its committees, such as the landscape committee, should be focusing on living up to the standards they hold the individual homeowners to!

   so because the pitch on the sides of the ditch in front of my house is STEEPER than  the areas you are not cutting - then I do not have to cut it for safety concerns ??  You pay a professional landscaping company - they can do it safely.

While mowing issues get resolved, kudos to the planting team.  The Eastfair and Highland Glen entrances at Nash Road are particularly beautiful this year!  The plants are lush, colorful, and certainly speak well for the elegance of our community.  The trees, shrubs, and mulch are well cared for, too.  Thanks for making it a pleasure to come home!

   Could you please get the bushes on BOTH sides of the Highlands sign on the entrance at Nash and Eastfair cut WAY BACK so the sign can be read from Nash Rd. I though new lighting was put in ?? Was that to light up the greenery ? Also - an update on landscaping on both sides of Eastfair as you come in, please.  It is worse than ever.
