With a mission "To create and maintain a neighborhood landscape that is worthy of a premier community", the Landscape Committee Chair coordinates with the landscape service company and the Community Manager to oversee Lochmere's annual plant rotation, pruning, tree maintenance in common areas, parks and natural areas etc (i.e. anything that grows and is in the common area). Different areas have varied maintenance plans depending on the classification of the green space (whether it is manicured or natural).
A few tips for maintaining the beauty of Lochmere:
- Please abide by the Town of Cary's Yard Waste Collection Program Guidelines for free, weekly disposal of yard waste. Storm and yard debris MUST NOT be piled next to Lochmere's walking trails or on other Lochmere HOA Common Property. Residents will be responsible for any fees generated by our landscape contractor associated with the removal of debris generated from private property.
- The Town also provides a convenient service for fall leaf collection. Read more about the program and check the curbside schedule as it becomes available HERE.
