Landscaping & Property Maintenance
Property ownership includes the responsibility for maintenance of all structures and grounds that are a part of the property. This includes, but is not limited to, items such as mowing grass, removal of trash and structural maintenance. Maintenance affects the visual character and economic values of the property and neighborhood and in some cases, safety.
Exterior Appearance - Residents are responsible for maintaining the exterior of their dwellings and any other structures on their lots, such as decks, fences, sheds and playground type off equipment.
The following represents some conditions that the Architectural Committee considers a violation:
- Oxidation or discoloration of exterior Copper roof surfaces
- Peeling paint or bare wood on exterior trim.
- Recreation equipment which is either broken or in need of repainting.
- Gutters or down-spouting in need of painting or replacement.
- Fences and gates with either broken or missing parts, or which are leaning or wobble.
- Sheds with broken doors or in need of painting or repair.
- Decks in need of repair or re-staining.
- Concrete or masonry block foundations in need of repainting or repair.
Most home owners would not allow any of the above conditions to exist as they seek to preserve and protect their investment in their homes and to limit their personal liability.
The COPPERMILL PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION expects that all residents will perform the following necessary maintenance to prevent any of the above cited conditions from occurring in our community.
Mowing - Turf areas need to be mowed at regular intervals, maintaining a maximum height of six (6) inches.
Landscaping - All changes to existing landscaping should take into consideration the impact it will have on drainage. Under no circumstances should changes in landscaping cause the ponding or collection of rainwater. Pictures are attached below showing acceptable and unacceptable lawn/garden plots.
- Location - Care should be exercised in the planting and maintenance of trees and shrubs to prevent obstruction of sight lines required for vehicular traffic. The views of neighboring units and shade patterns of larger trees should always be considered.
- Scale - Care must be exercised in selecting plant materials, which, upon maturity, will be an appropriate size in height and breadth for the intended location. Mature size, in height and diameter, should always be considered especially when planting close to walkways and homes. Consideration will be given to the effect plantings will have on views from neighboring homes and property.
Trash Removal - Each resident is responsible for picking up litter on his property. Trash days are MONDAY and THURSDAY. Recycling is collected on MONDAY
At no time is the community open space considered a dumping ground for waste or debris. As stated earlier, Trash is to be placed at curbside in tightly closed containers on the morning of trash collection. The empty containers are to be removed to an area not visible from the street the same day.
Snow Removal - Residents are required to clear snow and ice from the sidewalks in front or adjacent to their homes. Sand or kitty litter may be used as an abrasive when necessary, but the use of any rock salt or any other deicing salts, which are known to cause concrete deterioration, is strictly prohibited.
