Please remove your yard's marking flags (often placed for sprinkler maintainance, fertilizer warnings, and digging preparation) when your project is done.
Damaged Trees in PCVA Common Areas
The recent storm damaged hundreds of trees throughout our community. The Associations' first priority was to clear streets and sidewalks and to remove any branches or trees that present a danger to people—our landscaping crew has been tasked tom perform this work. Our second priority is to work with our expert arborist to professionally evaluate and treat severely damaged trees. This will take longer as arborists are in very high demand right now.
We ask that homeowners ONLY report damaged trees in the common areas that continue to present a potential danger--please email that information and location to PineCreek@ehammersmith.com.
Damaged Trees on Personal Property
Homeowners are responsible to remove all storm debris and branches from damaged trees located on their personal property. Homeowners have a couple of good options:
(A) Take damaged branches to the Black Forest Slash located about a 10-15 minute drive from Pine Creek Village. See details at www.bfslash.org
(B) Prepare for Waste Management pickup. Two methods are available:
(1) Bundle limbs and branches in 4-foot lengths and tightly bound with string so that the WM personnel can lift the bundle without movement; or
(2) Bag storm debris in black plastic bags and place curbside for Waste Management (WM) pickup. WM will pick up a maximum 5 bags for each homeowner in addition to the standard 96-gallon waste bin. Homeowners should use heavy duty 42-gallon black plastic bags available at local hardware stores.
Homeowners now can purchase the PCVA approved wood fence color at either Lowe's or Home Depot
Lowe's "Pine Creek Picket" Valspar exterior solid stain
Home Depot's "Pine Creek Brown Fence" Behr solid wood stain.
Summer is around the corner and homeowners' yards should be alive and greening now. Dead lawns, unkempt vegetation, and general grounds maintenance items must be corrected. Weeds must be removed completely, not just sprayed and left to die. Considering xeriscaping? Please ensure you submit a Modifications Request and gain approval before making any changes."
Whether you're xeriscaping your yard for a drought-tolerant landscape or planting new trees, click or call 811 before you dig every time, no matter how large or small your project is.
Call or click Colorado811.org at least three business days before you plan to dig, and utility lines will be marked free of charge. The depth of utility lines can vary because of conditions such as erosion, uneven surfaces, or previous digging projects. It is important to request utility locates even when only digging a few inches.
Hitting a utility line could mean a disruption to your service, potential repair costs, and most importantly, serious injury or even death. If you hit a line, stop working immediately. Do not attempt to repair the damaged line. If an injury has occurred, call 911 immediately. Call 811 to report the damage. Learn more about natural gas and electric safety at csu.org.
