We’re also familiar with the variances presented by property type–whether it’s coming from the Homeowner Association board of a residential housing subdivision or gated community, or the HOA responsible for managing communal areas for a townhome or condominium development.
We recognize the fact that the people residing within the community are paying dues to their HOA to manage neighborhood common areas, including parks, sidewalks, clubhouses, pools, dog walks, and tennis courts, and they rightfully expect to see their money is being invested wisely.
This is especially true of the landscape. After all, since landscaping can take up to 75% of an HOA’s budget, there had better be something good to show for it.
