The landscapers are moving right along with the rose removal and plant replacement. If you received new plants, remember for the next couple of weeks they need to be watered. It’s good to water them every other day if it doesn’t rain.
If you are unable to do this please let me know.
Thanks for your cooperation.
The landscapers are here today and they will be working on mulch and also removing the rose bushes. If you have roses bushes that you do not want taken out, be sure they have some kind of red tag on them. Remember, if you save them they become your responsibility.
They will be replacing the plants sometime next week.
Thank you for your cooperation.

I wanted to give everyone an up date on what’s happening with the rose removable and replacement.
As was mentioned in the blog, the landscape committee has located approximately 255 rose bushes. Because of location and spacing, we will be replacing approximately 220 of them. They will be replaced with “fire power nandinas.” We have many of these through out the neighborhood and we feel they will add color and grow nicely. Plus they are an easy plant to care for.
If you are one of the people in receiving them, you will be responsible for watering the plants for the first few weeks. You will receive more instructions on this after they are planted. If you are unable to water, please let a member of the landscape committee know and we will help you. We are hoping to have work started by the end of February.
If, for some reason, you do not like the choice of plant to replace the roses taken out of your area, you may replace them yourself at your expense. Just remember to fill out an LVR and submit it to the landscape committee.
If you are on the list sent out earlier and your plants have been check and are not diseased, please mark them with a red ribbon or piece of yarn.
I will keep everyone updated as I have more information.

The Landscape Committee has completed counting the rose bushes to the best of our ability. Below is a list of unit numbers where we have found the bushes. If your unit number is on the list and you are ok with us taking them out, no need to respond. If you want to keep them and they become diseased, it will be your responsibility to remove and replace them with another type plant. Please respond to this email by Monday, January 23rd. If you don't see your unit number on the list and you have a rose bush around your unit, please let me know.

At the January meeting of the Landscape Committee, it was decided that all the original roses will be removed from the Villas. Most of these plants are diseased and the few that are not will probably be soon. We will be replacing these with another type of plant that has yet to be determined. Depending on spacing, we may not be replacing them one for one.
If by chance, your roses are not diseased, and you want to keep them you may. If they become diseased later, it will be your responsibility to remove and replace them at your expense. Please let me know if you are choosing this option.
This project is still in the early stages. You may see members of the landscape committee walking around your unit checking the roses.
More detailed information will be given as this project begins.
Thank you for your cooperation.
