Beautification Day is carried out by the members of the Orchard Place Condominium Association. It is both a money-saving and community building exercise. This was challenged in 2009 so we requested quotes from multiple vendors for the work we do on this day. None of the vendors were willing to take on all of the tasks that we do: painting, weeding, mulching, planting, and bush trimming. However we received multiple quotes for bush trimming. The lowest was $700. The full Beautification Day budget is less than the cost for this subset of the work and so justifies the money-saving claim.
