Ivy Removal

The Cinco Ranch II Board of Directors implemented a fence maintenance program last year to prolong the lifespan of association owned fencing in the community. The objective of the program is to extend fence lifespan while protecting home values and community appearance. The program has several key components.
The removal of ivy on the public side of the fence
Pull back of mulch from the fence bottom
Creating a minimum space of two (2) feet between the fence and “green" life
Residents removal of ivy and “green” life from the fence on the resident side
Repair or replace damaged fencing
Routine fence power washing
The removal of ivy on the public side and the cutbacks to create space between the fence and “green” life have been completed. As a part of that process, the Board requested residents remove all ivy from their side of the fence and cutback “green” life.
Presently, Texas Landscape Group is reporting ivy that has not been removed on the resident’s side of the fence. The Board will provide a “one (1) time” clean-up of the ivy visible on the public side of the fence at no cost to the resident. After the “one (1) time” clean-up process is completed, any additional removal cost on the public side, will be charged back to the resident and addressed within the Association’s deed restriction enforcement process. This protocol will be implemented January 1, 2021.
The Deed Restrictions prohibit plants whose existence is unsightly or of a nature that may diminish the enjoyment of the community. Additionally, the documents state that required landscaping maintenance must occur often enough to ensure that the property is maintained to the Community Wide Standard. The Association shall have the power, as provided in the Declaration of Protective Covenants, to impose sanctions for any violation of the Governing Documents.
 The Board again requests residents to remove all ivy from their side of the fence by the end of 2020.  Keep in mind, this request does not pertain to resident owned fencing. If the resident permits the ivy to grow onto the public side of the fencing, the ivy will be removed at the owners expense per the deed restrictions mentioned above.
We look forward to your support in maintaining the integrity of the community.  If you would like to discuss this further, please contact one of our customer service representatives at customercare@ciaservices.com or 713-981- 9000.
