4. Numbers: Have you ordered or bought mulch lately for your property? How much mulch would you guess our Homeowners Association uses each year for our common grounds? Take a minute, think about that, guess! ... 15 semi-loads! That is 750 cubic yards, 6,750 cubic feet, of double-processed black All installed by our grounds crews. And they also spread 3 semi-loads of wood chips. In 2018 our staff removed 363 trees, and planted 95 new ones. They used almost 21,000 feet of strapping to restrap 171 pool chairs and 185 chaise lounges, and sanded and re[painted 44 tables. 45 gallons of paint were used, and pool restrooms were updated with new lighting and tiles All of this saved our Association well over $100,000, well over that amount, compared to contracting the work out..
