Pet Reminders

Please abide by the following guidelines regarding pets;

When outside always keep your pet on a leash (it is Washington County law). Do not let pets run loose within the Community, or within neighboring Communities. This includes cats.

Always pick up your pets’ waste and dispose of it properly.

Be aware that you can be fined for not picking up after your pet.

The cost to clean up pet waste and repair the damage to the landscaping is substantial; this cost is passed onto each Homeowner, even if they do not own a pet.

To report barking dogs, dogs that are off leash or running loose, you can call Washington County Animal Control at 503-846-7041.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Tree Pruning & Removals | March 11 to 13 2024

Tree Pruning & Removals March 11-13th

Please Review Notice in its Entirety – Tree Locations Provided Below

Please be sure to remove any items or vehicles that may be blocking the vendor’s access or be at risk for damage (lighting, decorations, etc.). During this time, there will be workers throughout the Community and around your property to access the trees. For privacy, it is recommended that you keep your blinds and curtains closed.

The vendors will be putting up “No Parking” signs on the trees to be removed. If there is a tree with this sign on it, do not park within 20 feet of both sides of the tree. This is so that the vendors will be able to safely remove the tree without risking damage to residents’ vehicles.

Please do not disrupt the vendor’s work. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Management. Neither the HOA, TMG, nor the Vendor will be responsible for personal items damaged during maintenance.

We appreciate your patience and understanding while the Association undergoes this important work.

Landscaper – Rejuvenation of Shrubs | Spring 2024

The Board of Directors recently approved the following landscaping rejuvenation. Please read Pacific Landscape Management’s below notice and the attachments in their entirety so you are prepared for some of the landscape changes to come.

REJUVENATION OF SHRUBS

Rejuvenation of plant material will result in healthier shrubs that will grow back in a more natural shape that can be maintained.

Shrubs will be cut to the ground.

As winter approaches, you might notice that deciduous shrubs (those that shed their leaves annually) can look a bit bare and less attractive. To address this and maintain the desired height and health of our landscape shrubs, Pacific has begun cutting them back. This might mean some shrubs are pruned significantly and, in certain cases, cut down to the ground to encourage healthier, more naturally sized growth. While it may initially look like the plants are gone for good, rest assured they will regrow beautifully over the season. This practice varies from annually to every 2-3 years, depending on the type of plant. The most common deciduous plants they will perform this practice annually are Barberry, Abelia, Spirea, and Dogwood shrubs. Every 2-3 years: Willow, Hydrangea, Euonymus, and Forsythia.

Damaged shrubs due to the freezing weather:

The immediate impact of our cold snap in January varied throughout the Northwest. The Portland/Vancouver metro area and Willamette Valley got slammed with snow and Ice while Seattle received a little snow but was very cold. While the snow and Ice had immediate impacts to areas south, the cold weather impacts are beginning to show up throughout western Washington and Oregon.

Most plants utilized on landscapes in Western Washington and Oregon are hardy, but some are marginally hardy, and the wind exacerbated the impacts and damage. As can be seen in the pictures attached, cold and wind damage is beginning to show up on evergreen shrubs. Even the hardiest evergreens can be impacted by the cold with leaf burn. Leaf burns are showing up and will result in some or all leaves to drop going into spring. However, most will re-foliate when they break buds and begin to grow in the spring while some plants may need to be rejuvenated.

Some marginally hardy plants include Escallonia, Viburnum davidii, Viburnum tinus, Abelia, New Zealand

Flax, Otto Lyken Laurel, Wax Privet, Cotoneaster, and Nandina.

Unfortunately, while most plants will survive, spring will be messy, and some shrubs will look bad until they can recover in mid to late spring. For some, the best recovery will be to cut the plants.

Account Manager HOA Pacific Landscape Management

Examples of Plant Rejuvenation




Moss and Crane Fly Treatment | Jan 29 to 30 2024

Pacific Landscape will by applying moss and crane fly treatment on all the turf within the community beginning on Monday, January 29th – 30th. Moss Treatment works to prevent moss growing in the turf. Crane fly treatment works to prevent crane fly under the turf. The process takes approximately 5 hours to apply.

Owners and pets should stay off the turf until dry (approximately two to three hours after the application is complete).

Please note that this schedule does not allow for inclement weather and/or equipment malfunction. If there is a change in schedule, notice will be sent out via email.

If you rent your unit, please pass on this information to your tenants.

Thank you,

Association Management Services, NW On behalf of your Board of Directors

Your safety is also important to us. Our trucks have to stop and start at every home, which is not easy to do in the snow and ice. With more people home today, it will mean more people/cars in the streets as well.

If you have any questions, please call or contact our office. (Pride Disposal Website) Our office staff may be limited due to weather conditions and our recycling depot is closed on Tuesday, 1/16. We appreciate your patience.
