STREET PARKWAY TREE REQUIREMENTS

Each lot must have at least one (1) tree within the parkway area between the sidewalk and street (on city property). Corner lots must have two (2) trees, one along each street. Please contact the RSHA Landscape Committee for approved tree types and specifications. The developer is responsible for planting the street trees.

NOTE: Street trees planted in between the curb and the sidewalk DO NOT count towards the landscaping requirements, NOR do trees planted on/in commons areas.

LANDSCAPE DRAWINGS

Each RSHA homeowner is required to submit a detailed landscaping plan/drawing (preferably prior to installation) to the RSHA Landscape Committee for approval. All landscape plans must be approved and completed within 15 months after home has started construction. This plan can be as simple as a hand sketch, but must illustrate type, size and location of all plants and trees in the landscape.

Please forward your submissions to:
