Landscape Committee

Mission and Vision

The Landscape Committee is responsible for preserving the natural beauty of the Windrush common areas. They provide educational and hands-on opportunities to those interested in assisting with these goals. The committee works in conjunction with the other committees and officers, developing long-term plans for all common areas.

The committee:

  • Manages annual lawn care and landscaping and casual landscaping labor contracts
  • Coordinates the green initiatives within the Windrush community
  • Determines and executes minimum landscape services for the year including the needs for fertilizer, mulch, soil, weed killer, and environmentally friendly plants for lawn and beds in all common areas
  • Establishes a list of annual standard maintenance items
  • Manages Landscape Committee contracts (prepares specifications, solicits bids, reviews responses, selects winners, processes and approves invoices for payment)
  • Recommends an annual budget for the maintenance or improvement of landscape items and any changes to the budget during the year
  • Develops and maintains procedures and processes for committee functions
  • Prepares and makes updates to a rolling 5-year plan
  • Educates the community about green landscape guidelines and processes
  • Meets at least quarterly, prepares minutes, and submits to the Secretary
