Please note, the landscape application process may take up to 60 days from the time that an application is initially submitted to the time that approval is received. This time can be reduced by providing plans that meet District requirements on the initial submission. Please make use of the Initial Rear Yard Landscape Checklist below to confirm that all requirements for plantings or additional information have been included with your plan. Complete landscape design review applications submitted by the first and third Wednesday of the month will be submitted for review by the Design Review Committee on the first and third Friday of the month.
Important Information To Know
Pursuant to the Residential Improvement Guidelines and Site Restrictions all fences within Barefoot must be treated with one of the two approved Preservative Treatments listed below. In lieu of a stain that can be difficult to match across multiple phases and builders, and that must be applied regularly, fences should be sealed with an approved Preservative Treatment. This clear treatment contains no dye or coloring; it causes the lignin in the wood to form a natural, rustic-weathered patina that enhances the life of the wood and does not need to be reapplied. You can find out more details about District fencing guidelines and Owner responsibilities in the Residential Improvement Guidelines and Site Restriction and Homeowner Landscape Guidelines found at http://svlmd-barefootlakes.com/design-review/
