Opting-out of lawn care (effective 2019 season):

Homeowners may opt out of ALL lawn services. There will be no reduction in dues. This is an ALL or NOTHING option. Either all lawn services will be provided, or none.

The homeowner must contact Area Real Estate for an Opt-out form, or download it HERE. 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 Thursday) indicating that they do not want service.  If the signs are not in place, the lawn WILL be mowed, trimmed, and blown.
