The Belmont


Landscape Design


As you know, the Board of Trustees engaged the services of Phil Cheny Landscape Design to provide an overall redesign for the Belmont's mature and dated landscaping. We have since undertaken the design process with the skills and vision of Whitten Landscaping. Craig Whitten knows what the designer intended for the entire property and by utilizing his expertise, the Belmont will save thousands in design work. The  project will be performed in phases over several years. 


  • 2015: Phase One -       Redesign and planting of the main bed in front of Building Four.
  • ​2016 - Phase two -     Redesign and planting of the main island in front of buildings 3 & 4 and one                                                                townhouse island; representing the future of all townhouse islands
  • 2017 - Phase Three - Removal of all overgrown trees and shrubs in front of building five.
  •                                         removal of overgrown shrubs and vegetation in front of building six.

RETAINING WALL & STAIRS - GORDON RITCHIE ROAD

PARKING LOT RECONSTRUCTION

Phase One is completed. Phase Two will start in late March or early April

Sun, Sand  & Sea

Perimeter and Town House Fencing

There are always projects underway at the Belmont. This winter is no exception!

This winter, we're painting the mid-rise garages in Buildings 3, 4, 5 & 6.  We are also doing a substantial remodel at the restaurant. This will involve replacing the carpet in the restaurant with new flooring, painting the bar, cabinets and all overhead decorative features in a gloss black, painting all the dining room chairs gloss black, replacing all the large triangular windows with new triple pane Harvey windows. The vast majority of this work will be completed in-house to save the owners money. We're removing and replacing landscape in front of Building Six and possibly One. We are also replacing the landscape on the island between TH 4 and TH 5. We're adding landscape to the Garage 3 & 4 entrance and continuing to replaces the Trellises in front of the Town Homes that need them. We're replacing the old and deteriorated stairwell behind buildings 4 & 4 with new pressure treated stairs.


We're looking at the possibility of updating all the exterior light posts in the common areas and TH entrances.


We have a rotating and ongoing procedure to paint balcony ceilings, rails and fascias. We are also making structural repairs to many of the balconies and concrete blocks that are not sound.


Currently, we are in the process of parking lot reconstruction. You've all seen my multiple emails with the timeline changes. The binder coat, berm and raising of septic covers has taken place. We are planning the finish coat and line-striping soon. This is all weather dependent. 


We've painted the garages in Buildings 3 though 6. We've also upgraded and replaced lots of landscaping. This will be ongoing through the early part of the season to make repairs to the areas disturbed by the paving project. We also made major repairs to the septic system in Building Six parking lot. Photos can be seen on Facebook in the Owners Forum.

                                           RETENTION POND REHABILITATION

An extension of our parking lot replacement is rehabilitating the retention pond behind Buildings One & Two. This area became wildly overgrown; thus defeating its purpose. A Retention pond is designed to remove excess storm water that flows from both the coastal dune and the landscaped portions of our property. When this fails, there is a greater chance of having water back up towards the building or seeping underground, causing frost heaves in our newly paved lot. We've revitalized this area by removing all vegetation and laying a bed of native stone that will act as natural filtration & drainage.
