Landscaping & Flower Bed Maintenance 

The Landscape Committee works with contractors hired by the Mews to ensure that our grounds are maintained and makes recommendations to the board. The Landscape Committee is comprised of volunteers and welcome additional volunteers, if you’d like to volunteer or have any questions please contact the committee chair, Suzanne Davis at shoeboxsue@gmail.com.

If you wish to plant annuals or perennials in the flower bed adjacent to your unit you should complete the Flower Bed Waiver Form.
