4. LANDSCAPERS: The Landscapers ask that you avoid the piles of vegetation, branches, grass. etc. that may be stacked up in the parking areas.  Most particularly, please do not park on top of these piles.  The Landscapers are trying to not have piles in the parking spaces but sometimes in blowing or raking into larger piles, there may be a small pile in the way and if a car pulls in on top of that, it can be difficult to pick up the pile.  Also, please use caution and slow down as you go around Landscaping vehicles and/or trailers.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
