Landscaping Update

As many of you have noticed, we have a lot of landscaping items going on. To give everyone an update, Byrd’s Landscaping started in April and hit the ground running. They have been working hard on the turf trying to get areas to grow where there was just red clay before.

Our current project is multi-faceted:

  1. We removed all of the juniper that was dead.
  2. We removed all of the trees that were dead (the stumps will be ground next week).
  3. The unwanted Forsythia growth on the berm has been removed.
  4. The retention area on the garage side has been cut back.
  5. The trees up on the hill behind Pergola Place has been cleaned up at the base.
  6. In order to prepare for our roofs being replaced, we will be removing all of the Crape Myrtles on the non-garage side during the week of November 6.
  7. We are getting a quote to reduce the height of the Elaeagnus on the berm by the railroad tracks.
  8. We will be replacing the shrubs that were removed recently — in the Spring (getting a really good price at that time). We need to wait until planting season otherwise they will die.

We hope everyone is as excited as we are about all of the beautiful changes that are going on. Have a wonderful Fall!​

Fun Things to Do in the University Area

Some of Charlotte’s hottest events take place in the coolest spaces in University City. Concerts at PNC Pavilion, NASCAR races at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the International Festival at UNC Charlotte, and the unique University City Duathlon in University Research Park are just the start. With annual events like the University City Wine Fest and the Healthy UCity Race Series, there is always something fun to do!

Major college sports and much more
Living in University City provides easy access to our region’s No. 1 public university, UNC Charlotte. If you like college athletics, you’ll love cheering the 49ers men’s and women’s NCAA teams. Several are nationally ranked. Visit Charlotte 49ers.

Music, dance and theater performances by students, faculty and visiting artists are great entertainment at very affordable prices – sometimes even free!
