Who takes care of the grass and maintenance of the individual yards and areas surrounding the homes?  The owners are responsible for their property ensuring that the landscaping and debris are maintained regularly.  This includes the fenced-in portion of your yard as well as 1/2 of the easement beyond the rear of your fence, if you live on an easement.  Grass service for the common areas (the community park) is included in the dues.

When are the trash and recycling picked up? Trash is picked up each Friday, and recycling is picked up every other Friday. Place your bins outside the front of your home the night before to ensure pick up and please remove them no later than by the end of Friday. The trash bins must be kept inside the fenced-in area of your yard or garage to ensure that they are not visible at any time except trash day.  More about Virginia Beach’s curbside services and collection guidelines can be found here https://www.vbgov.com/government/departments/public-works/pw-waste-management/Pages/curbside-services.aspx. No refuse should be left outside unless you have scheduled a bulk pickup. This service must be requested by calling waste management and all bulk items must be placed at the end of your own driveway and not along Canterford Lane.

What can I not do on my property? Virginia Beach code enforcement has a website that lists a number of things you’re not allowed to do, including allowing grass to become overgrown, abandoning vehicles, parking commercial vehicles in residential zones, and leaving trash cans visible. The HOA also has additional rules in our bylaws and other documents which must be adhered to.  If you are unsure please use the contact us form with any questions.
