Yes. All "hardscape" improvements require an application. Hardscape includes walkways, patios, pads, rock walls, etc. The ACC encourages property improvements but wants to help you comply with our CC&Rs as you proceed. Therefore, we ask you to submit your plans. You may prepare simple drawings and you may appear in person at an ACC meeting to present your plan. In most cases, we'll approve. In some cases we'll ask a professional consultant to evaluate the plan and report on compliance with the CC&R's.
Generally, no. Replacement of dead or inappropriate plants does not require Association approval.

Certain landscape renovations may require a permit from the City of Santa Rosa and you should check with the City prior to commencing work.

Yes. Such additions usually require hardscape for the foundation and access path. Further, there are CC&R requirements regarding external structures and the protection of native trees on hillsides, be they private or public land. It's pretty complex. By looking at your plans, the ACC and our consultants can help assure conformance to all requirements.
