Reminders about Exterior Maintenance
If you are thinking about painting the stucco of your home, here are some reminders:
Several years ago there was a change in the approved color pallet for Newbridge Cluster.
Benjamin Moore has a record of the approved colors – both old and new.
If you decide to paint your exterior, you must pick from either the old or the new pallet and the entire exterior must be of the same pallet – you cannot mix the old and new color choices.
You cannot use the same colors as the house on either side of you.
If you have flowers or shrubs in your landscaping beds, you must keep them under control and free of weeds. Shrubs and trees should not be allowed to overgrow the space they are in where they cover up windows, grow over the sidewalk, etc. Weeds must be pulled frequently to maintain a neat and orderly landscaping bed.
Please do not allow anything on your property that holds water – flower pots, bird bath, children’s pool, etc. The Zika Virus is very serious and while we don’t have all the facts about this particular virus, we do know that standing water (even a spoon full) will and does attract mosquitos.
Please remember that composting is not allowed in Newbridge Cluster
