|Our Breckenridge Entrance (a never ending project)|
|Every Spring it’s time to prune and clean up the shrub and tree beds on the island and the white fence line. For several years a few of us neighbors did this work ourselves, but it turned out to be a whole lot of back breaking work. Last year and for now on we will paid a professional service to do the job with the help of your annual maintenance dues of $30. Last year the cost was about $1,400. If this work is not done annually, weeds will overtake the beds. Here are a few pictures showing some of the work done at the Breckenridge Entrance in 2006. After Katrina destroyed the entrance trees we replaced them with two more beds to match the existing bed on the island. |

Breckenridge homes have been keeping pace with property values.That has something to do with, as they say, Location, Location, Location. Another reason is that our neighborhood looks attractive to prospective buyers. Breckenridge offers nice looking homes and manicured yards that make the average home buyer think they would like to live here and willing to pay the price to do so. For many of us our home is our largest investment. So it just makes dollars and “sense” to keep our investment looking as attractive to others as well as ourselves.Keep in mind that any Realtor will tell you that all things considered, a $100 flower garden in your front yard can yield you an extra $1,000 or more when you sell. Have you noticed how our neighborhood has been getting literally trashy lately. Specifically, the big ugly blue eye sore in front of many homes in our subdivision. While driving down our streets, it’s hard to notice the nice looking homes behind the big blue garbage cans. Well, now we know why our covenants states that the garbage cans need to be stored out of public view. I know that is not necessarily an easy thing to do for everybody. My new big blue baby is twice the size of the normal size garbage can, but I did manage to find room for it in my garage. It sort of doubles as a work table top. Some neighbors have figured out ways to hide the can from public view on the side of the house behind a couple of bushes or behind a fence.If you would like to see or print a copy of the Breckenridge Covenants , click here to go to the page.You can find the BHA Sign-up Form here.
