Park Place Neighborhood Association understands the need for drought resistant material within our neighborhood. Drought resistant material, such as stone, gravel and other non-organic material, shall be permitted on up to 50% of the area that can be seen from the street or alley-ways. The 50% is based on the area from the foundation of the house to the sidewalk or alley. The stones or gravel used should be decorative, smooth surfaced stone; in Earth-tone colors; and not to exceed 1/2" diameter. The stone or gravel area shall not be contiguous, but broken up with landscape planting areas in accordance with current neighborhood aesthetics. The stone or gravel shall be installed in a manner that presents a finished appearance with the material fully contained with non-flexible borders. The rock or gravel areas shall be free of weeds and debris (trash) on an on-going basis. In accordance with article V, section 5.3 of the Declaration, a written request for landscape alteration is required, to be approved by the committee, before such work may begin.
