Blue fabric zippered sleeves were installed on the pool railings last week to help cool them down during the summer months. Check out the photos! The railings become extremely hot to the touch in the summer heat. While the bars will still feel warm to the touch with the sleeves on, you will no longer directly touch the metal railings getting in and out of the pool.
The new shed was installed this week at the end of Cottage Grove Court. Dave did a great job painting it to match the Raintree colors. Check out the photos. This area was previously cleared by a few residents to make room for the shed.
Last month Raintree’s Landscaping Committee transplanted shrubs and other plants from the new shed area at the end of Cottage Grove to the small park located next to Building #2. Be sure to check out the photos! This was a great way to use existing plants for other areas of the community. So far, it looks like all the plants are doing well in their new locations.
