Behind the scenes with Public Works: Perimeter Fence Cutbacks

Courtesy of Public Works

The Landings Association has approximately 12 miles of perimeter fencing located throughout the community. As part of our landscape contract, BrightView trims and cuts all vegetation 5” inches in diameter or less on each side (1.5 feet on each side of fencing) of the perimeter fencing on the Association’s common property.

Perimeter fence cutbacks are conducted annually to ensure that vegetative overgrowth does not encompass the fencing in any way. The proper amount of space around the fencing allows Public Works staff to make necessary repairs and replacements as needed throughout the year. During the cutbacks, which were recently competed, BrightView crews compiled a list of areas where breaks in the fencing have occurred and require subsequent repairs. A comprehensive list of the suggested repairs/replacements was provided to Public Works staff for evaluation.

Over the next several months, Public Works staff will address any breaks in the fencing. In the event that you see damage or a break in the perimeter fencing, please report the breakage to the Public Works Department (
