Over the 23 years we have received requests for a different landscape company and everytime a change has been made we continue to get those same requests for a "better" Landscaper. We currently pay $27,000 a year to mow the Lawns, trim the common area bushes and trees, and fertilization and weed control of all grass both homeowner and common area. Before I joined the Board a company was hired that cost over $65,000 a year and everyone was unhappy because the service was terrible and there was weeds and dandelions everywhere. Our Lawns were yellow with dandelion blooms. We fired them as soon as the Board member that hired them left the Board and I joined the Board because of their poor service and the cost back in 2007 was going to bankrupt the Association as the cost was 2/3rds of our entire budget. We were able to keep fees low by using companies with lower bids and actually service improved greatly. We will never find a landscaping company that pleases everyone. My question is are you willing to pay an extra $20 per month to utilize another company? That would bring up our dues to $85 a month. Or are you satisfied with our current landscaper and paying our current $65 a month? Please reply ASAP. You can email me at Mikegsimmons@aol.com or use the chat button on the bottom right corner of the websites screen. We really need to know ASAP.
