New SSMHOA Landscaping Accomplishments

Nora Nicosia, co-Chair of the  SSMHOA Landscaping Committee along with Sandy Gooch, reports that improvements have been made to Silver Strand landscaping. The small mini-Mall on Topsail, leading to the path along the lagoon, has been planted with succulents which are attractive and drought tolerant. The Committee was faced with a difficult problem as no irrigation  was provided for that area when the Silver Strand was originally developed. Happily, homeowner Jane Parks generously allowed R&G Design, SSMHOA landscaper, to attach a water line to her sprinkler system. Lynda Evans-Smith assisted with this project. R&G did the design. Here is a photo taken shortly after planting. The succulents, including beautiful Aloe Vera specimens,  will grow larger over time.


The triangle entrance to the Silver Strand has been greatly improved this year. The shrubbery is now kept trimmed down so as not to obstruct the views of cars entering the Silver Strand on either side of triangle from Via Dolce or Marquesas Way. New yellow and purple bedding plants have been put in to provide color. Sandy Gooch and Ray Garcia of R&G design worked together on making the entrance both safe and attractive.
