What is needed to prepare for landscaping installation?

  • Obtain a copy of the Lot Grading Certificate for the property. The Lot Grading Certificate is provided by the builder. It is a surveyed record of the lot grades and purpose of the certificate is to ensure that the builder has placed and shaped the topsoil on the lot to reasonable tolerances of the approved engineered grades. A copy is sent to homeowners as well as Mountain’s Edge to indicate that the lot grading has been completed and ready for landscaping. Properly installed topsoil ensures rainfall, snow melt or irrigated water drains away from the foundation. Improper drainage can cause moisture or dampness of the foundation and basement.

  • The lot landscaping package is intended to be a ‘starter kit’ to help homeowners enjoy their property sooner. Whether the homeowner intends to have xeriscape or a yard lush with grasses and flowers, the homeowner can discuss their landscaping plans with Mountain’s Edge and have them omit areas of sod where the homeowner might choose to put a personal mark on their yard.

Other Important Information

  • Tree species and shrub selections are supported in this grow zone. Due to seasonal availability, some trees species are not in stock.

  • Trees and shrubs must be maintained by homeowner or tenant following planting. Warranty is not offered on plant material which has been damaged or adversely affected by neglect or poor maintenance. Please read the care and maintenance information thoroughly.

  • The lot landscaping package has no cash value. No substitutions are available.

  • Foundation backfill settlement is normal and may occur following landscaping installation. Settlement is not the responsibility of Mountain’s Edge. In the event of significant settlement, please contact the builder.

  • Mountain’s Edge will arrange utility locates prior to planting and schedule the work with homeowners.

  • Mountain’s Edge will provide care and maintenance information to homeowners to ensure yards keep looking beautiful in years to come.

  • Side yard fencing or lot landscaping should not proceed without a certified Lot Grading Certificate.

  • Typical installation season is June to October, weather and plant stock permitting.

  • These details and Lot Landscaping Packages are subject to change and may be revised at any time at the discretion of Genesis Land Development Corp.

  • Laned lots have restricted front yards due to utilities and setbacks to safely and adequately place a tree. Therefore, 10 shrubs will be installed. In these areas, boulevard trees have been selected and will be installed where possible.
