Yard Inspections 2019

Yard Inspections

Yard inspections will start the week of July 8th, 2019. Please follow the below guidelines to ensure you do not receive a yard fee (of the Clutter and Debris Responsibility) during the inspection. 

1. Remove all weeds from your front and back gardens

All 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units must keep their gardens maintained in a neat and weed free manner. This also applies to one-bedroom units, which share the responsibility with the building. 

2. Collect weeds in preparation for disposal

  • Bags makes it easier to dispose of the weeds later, as well as to avoid the weeds re-rooting themselves again in your garden. 
  • NO bags can be put into the compost; bags or other containers only used as carriers to dump the weeds into the compost bins, as outlined in next step. 

3. Drop weeds into the compost bins located at the community garden sites

4. Clear and organize the remainder of your yard

In addition to removing and properly disposing all the weeds in your gardens, complete the following to ensure you fully pass the inspection:

  • Organize storage shed: place all items inside, remove items from top of shed
  • Remove and/or dispose of non-yard items (i.e. indoor chairs, sofas, microwaves, T.V.s, interior tables etc.)
  • Pick up trash: clean yard area free of garbage
  • Clear lawn area for mowers: be sure to move unused yard items (bikes, tables, chairs, grills) free of the lawn area for the mowers to pass all grass areas front and back

You can also read more on the Clutter and Debris Responsibility on our website. We appreciate all of your work with continuous improvements to the safety and appearance of the CTC property.
