Plants & General Maintenance

General Maintenance


The Village at Vistancia's landscape contractor, Caretaker Landscape, provides regular tips for maintaining and sustaining your landscape on our community blog.

Plants


Appendix C of the Design Guidelines (PDF) lists acceptable plants to be used in front - and rear-year landscaping, as well as prohibited plants. Please consult this list before selecting plants.

The Design Review Committee reserves the right to update the accepted and prohibited plant lists at any time.

Trees


Keep the following in mind when working with trees in your landscape:
  • Issues stemming from trees growing near shared walls are neighbor-to-neighbor issues. First, try addressing the matter with your neighbor. If that is unsuccessful, you have the right to trim branches and leaves hanging over the wall and onto your property.
  • Trees growing near sidewalks or roadways are required to have a minimum clearance of eight feet.
  • When trimming trees, properly dispose of branches and debris. Do no dump tree trimmings into washes or common areas.

Weeds


Please keep landscaping free of weeds. Exercise preventative care to avoid weed growth and save the hassle of having to pull them.
