Question of the Week


While in spring other communities in the area enjoy beautiful plants in freshly mulched beds, we in Princeton Landing are not so fortunate. In addition to not being mulched this year, many of our beds are a jumble of dead plants and weeds.

For example, this bed is located on the median in the Parcel 6 roadway. Brickman planted these laurels about a year ago. Most of them are dying. The grasses and some liriope are also dead. The rock hard, unmulched bed is filled with dried-up leaves, assorted weeds and broken branches. In short, it's a mess.

Why isn't the bed being maintained? Why is the Board continuing to approve money for new plants throughout the community when the plants we have are not being cared for? And why do residents, some of whom pay over $400 in maintenance fees every month, have to look at planting beds like this in spring?
