Resolution 2011-3: Gardening and Plantings

Effective: October 1, 2011.

Resolution 2011-3 updates the rules concerning gardening.  The updated rules go into effect October 1 and will affect the next gardening season.  A few highlights:

  • Use pots or planter boxes on patios and balconies, not paint buckets, styrofoam containers, etc.
  • Plantings on common elements (anything not on your balcony or patio) require prior approval or might be removed by the Association.
  • There is a form in the resolution for requesting approval. If you have planted on common elements before, e.g., rose bushes at the end of the building, please request approval and attach a photo.
  • No fences, chicken wire, lava rocks, etc. are allowed.
  • Read the resolution for complete information.
These rules will enhance the beauty of Talltree South and allow those with green thumbs to work their magic. But don't plant things anywhere on common elements without approval and expect it to remain, particularly if it is unattractive.
