2. The committee understands this is not the opportune time to plant shrubs/flowers so they would like to see that the areas are barked right away but the plants to be planted by spring. The ASC will review the yard in April 2016 to see how the bark overlay on the wood chips and plantings looks at that time. The recommendations from the Garden Consultant will be given to the owners.
