Garbage and recycling collection now take place once per week (on Mondays).  You must use the new bins provided by PSDS.

Roofing Maintenance

A & B Roofing will be onsite in March and April doing maintenance work on our roofs. If you see or hear people on the roof during working hours do not become alarmed.

Restated Rules & Regulations and Enforcement Procedures were adopted at the December 14, 2013 regular board meeting that followed the 2013 Annual Meeting.  The documents were mailed to homeowners on December 28, 2013. 

Please carefully review the restated Rules & Regulations to ensure compliance.  Infractions that may have been overlooked in the past are no longer acceptable and may be subject to the restated Enforcement Procedures. 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Patio Extension Ballot Measure


It was recently brought to the Rose Garden Board of Directors’ attention that HOA boards can no longer approve conversions of common areas to private use without the express permission of the HOA’s membership. 


For this reason, the Rose Garden Board sought homeowners’ blanket permission to allow the Board to approve patio extensions that conform to a standard dimension and using pre-approved building materials.  A ballot measure was mailed to homeowners in February 2014 and counted at the March 8, 2014 open Board meting.  The ballot measure missed passing by one vote.  Because the vote was so close and nearly half the homeowners didn’t return ballots, the Board will consider sending out another patio extension ballot later this spring.


If you have any questions, please contact Phil at PSMG.

Landscape Planning


2/22/14 Update: For homeowners who are eager for the planting beds directly adjacent to units quickly re-landscaped according to the new master plan, the Board is excited to announce that individual owners can sponsor such upgrades. The first wave of requests that were submitted in fall 2013 were approved at the February 22, 2014 open board meeting.  If you submitted one of those approved requests, or would like to initiate a new request, (click here) to contact the Landscape Committee and PSMG to confirm next steps.


The Rose Garden is a beautiful environment for all of us to live and relax.  In order to maintain our attractive surroundings, we must anticipate how time’s impact on current mature plantings and the increasing need to use water efficiently affect decisions about how we want our community to look in the future.


The Board commissioned a proposed master landscape plan consisting of a plant palette, irrigation recommendations, and other elements that can help guide future decisions about when to replace dead or aging plants, what materials to use to enhance plantings, how to upgrade our irrigation systems, and provide guidance for decision-making so that we retain a consistent and harmonious look throughout our community.


The Board does not anticipate significant short-term changes to our current plantings or grassy areas. The proposed master landscaping plans are intended to help us gradually move our community into the future as we make decisions over the next several years that are inevitable due to the age of many of our plants.


In spring 2013, the Board shared the plans, solicited homeowners’ input and then voted to accept the landscaping guidelines.  The approved master landscaping plans will certainly evolve over time.  But in order to help us move forward as one community, these plans can serve as an agreed-upon starting point and provide overall parameters for decisions we’ll need to make during the coming years.


An electronic file with the full description and color simulations of the board-approved master landscaping theme is available for homeowners to review online.  Please CLICK HERE to submit your request to receive the link via return e-mail.  Once you have seen the plans, please CLICK HERE if you would like to send comments to the Board.
