A Note from your ArtisTree Account Executive

Since beginning at Waterlefe, I have taken many actions to improve the Villas landscaping and ensure you receive the quality of service you deserve. To give you an idea of some changes being made behind the scenes, here are just a few things I have done and will continue to do to improve the Villas Landscaping:

  • Removed and replaced crew members.
  • Retrained the crews to contract specifications and correct practices, undoing a lot of misdirection and poor quality work that was previously happening under the former ArtisTree Account Executive.
  • Instructed the crews to slow down and take more time at each home to pay attention to details and make sure every home is receiving good service.

In the upcoming Fall/Winter season,  we will be trimming the White BOPs and thinning out some of the overgrowth that has accumulated over the years. Please understand that these White BOP’s are not included in the detailed trimming of the contract.

Wet Check/Irrigation Report

The following is a helpful guide / example of how to read your wet check reports from the ArtisTree irrigation team. 

The top line of the report shows what time the irrigation is set to run (pictured above, the irrigation runs at 2:00 AM from Tuesday - Friday). Column A shows the zone around the house, and column B shows the type of irrigation in that zone (S=Spray, R=Rotary, D=Dripline). For example, according to this wet check, this home had 4 spray nozzles replaced in zone 1 (front left side of home) and 2 spray nozzles replaced in zone 4 (right side of home). ArtisTree will replace any broken heads they encounter during the monthly wet cheks, otherwise a work order needs to be submitted if broken heads are discovered during the remainder of the month.

Please Note: If the Repairs Made/Parts Replaced section is blank, the wet check was completed and no repairs or replacements were required.



Work order tracking is managed every step of the way by ArtisTree’s in-house system (ART); from submission, to updates, to completion, your requests are answered quickly, efficiently, and securely. ART is available to take work orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Monthly reports will continue to be provided to Association Management for review.
