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.
  •                                         REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT OF OLD LANDSCAPE IN FRONT OF TH 31.
  • 2019-  Phase Four -   Removal of approximately 45 trees after Tornado Blew Through in July

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

This winter, we're upgrading the interiors of all mid-rise elevators with a brand new and 'beachy' look. We're replacing many rotted trellises and arbors at the town homes. All the soffits at the front of each town home and are being revitalized and the same is happening with the archways that serve as the entrance to many of the front courtyards. We've replaced and relocated the flagpole that was destroyed during the tornado. The pool is being fully resurfaced with brand new coping, highly reflective tile and a new "stonescapes" pebble surface that will be much more durable and pleasant on the feet

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.

We will be repairing the berm this spring and are looking at several other aesthetic upgrades that I'm certain you'll enjoy! 

Photos of all projects will be posted in the owners forum on Facebook.

We are in the process of replacing the dated and original elevator interiors in the mid-rise buildings.

                                           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.

                                                     RESTAURANT REMODEL

We’re replacing the worn and faded carpeting in the restaurant with new CORtec® Luxury Vinyl Planks. This product is guaranteed for 15 years and is totally waterproof. 

We are also repainting the bar, cabinets and overheard glass rack and other features in a gloss black. All the dining room chairs will also be black and we're adding new counter tops in Granite or Quartz. We've replaced the large triangular windows as well!

                                                    POOL REHAB & RESURFACING

We've given the pool a brand new look! We've replaced the old coping with a beautiful granite and have replaced the border tile with a sleek navy blue highly reflective porcelain. At the same time; we've replaced all through wall fittings in order to mitigate any leaks. We had to drive the truck across the beach in order to be close enough to shoot the new material. The new 'Stonescapes' mini pebble surface was installed and now the pool is complete.
