Improve curb appeal by providing residents with gardening tools and supplies needed to beautify their gardens and backyard areas.Set proper expectations for residents. Traditional self-help is not required given we provide immediate maintenance services and the resident is not required to perform the services themselves. 
Beautification Department
The Self-Help Beautification Centers which are located on Ord Military Community (OMC) and La Mesa Village (LMV) consist of 10-20 beautification compartments that contain a lawn mower, lawn edger, planting supplies, and other unique gardening tools.

To sign for a key that will unlock an assigned beautification compartment, please visit your local management office. You will then have 48 hours to access the lawn and gardening tools and when the 48 hour period is up, simply return the key to your local management office.
