Opting-out of lawn care:

Homeowners may opt out of ALL lawn care services. There will be no reduction in dues. This is an ALL or NOTHING option. Either all lawn services will be provided, or none. Because of the design of the irrigation system, individual homes may NOT opt out of irrigation.

The homeowner must contact Area Real Estate to opt-out of lawn care services. This form must be signed and returned to Area Real Estate. The homeowner must also place signs in the front and back yards on mowing days (usually Wednesday) indicating that they do not want service.  If the signs are not in place, the lawn WILL be mowed, trimmed, and blown.
