As Fall finally arrives, leaves continue to turn many different shades, then ultimately fall from the tree. At this time of the year, the community does end up looking somewhat cluttered, until the Fall Cleanup is completed. The HOA landscape contract has a Fall Cleanup included, but to get more “bang for the buck”, the Fall Cleanup is scheduled once all of the leaves have fallen. As many homeowners are aware, the process of leaf removal can be an ongoing process for weeks, and performing leaf removal too early is a wasted effort. For whatever reason, the leaves on Metropolitan and Golden Bear Dr. have mostly fallen, but the trees on Whitehall and Deerwood continue to hold onto their leaves. Currently, the fall leaf cleanup is scheduled for Nov. 9th, as it is anticipated that all of the leaves will have fallen by that date. We continue to monitor the trees in the community, and if the leaves fall earlier, the fall cleanup will be moved up.
