FAQs

Is there a requirement to keep securities (i.e. bond, cash deposit) in place for landscape improvements?

All landscape plans require securities as follows:

  • If landscape improvements are located within the public rights-of-way then the landscape security shall remain in place for a period of one-year from the date of the approved as-built Mylar plan set for that project (per the current Landscape Development Manual pg. 5).  The duration of this time is considered the landscape maintenance/establishment period.
  • If the entire improvement is located on private property, then the security shall be held for a minimum period of 90 days from the date of the approved as-built Mylar plan set for that project.  This usually allows sufficient time to provide the landscape to become established and maintained.
