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). 

The committee is looking for additional residents from the various areas of Lochmere who are interested in monitoring the common area grounds so that concerns can be quickly identified and promptly corrected.  If you walk, jog or bike through Lochmere and you would like to take a few minutes and report on the landscape in your part of Lochmere, you would be a great fit for the committee!  We need representation from all of the Lochmere neighborhoods!

A few tips for maintaining the beauty of Lochmere:

  1. 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.  
  2. 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.    

In May 2018, the committee renewed the contract with Brightview Landscaping (formerly known as Brickman) and signed a 3-year contract with them to maintain the beauty of Lochmere's common area landscapes.  Brightview provides a dedicated crew that takes personal pride and ownership in all aspects of landscaping services including mowing, pruning, planting, etc.  Our Account Manager is Aaron Scholl.   Brightview  has been in business since 1939 and has over 160 branches serving 29 states.  See for more information about the company.
