Residents are reminded to take the following precautions to ensure that services can be properly performed:
  • Unrestricted access to the backyard must be available for services.
  • Gates must remain unlocked and function properly. Property owners are responsible for repairing gates that improperly latch or are out of alignment.
  • Personal items such as lawn furniture, toys, hoses, and other items must be removed from lawn areas before services can occur.
  • Pets cannot be present during services. Ensure that all gates are closed and properly latched prior to letting pets into yards.
Residents that wish to opt out of service or part of the service (ex. fertilizer applications) may do so by submitting a completed Opt Out Form to operations@brambleton.org. Please note: This form must be filled out each year in order to opt out. Residents that choose to opt out are still obligated to pay the full monthly assessment.

Parking Considerations - BCA regularly receives inquiries about parking in the community. Brambleton’s Board of Directors has established a vehicle policy, and county parking ordinances are enforced by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. We encourage residents to consider how parking impacts their neighbors, and we offer the following suggestions to be more neighborly:

  • Use your garage and driveway as a first option rather than parking on the street or in open visitor spaces.
  • Allow some distance when parking near a driveway. Parking too close to or opposite a driveway can make it difficult for residents to navigate around your car.
  • While an overflow of guests can lead to parking up and down a street, encourage guests to use the space in front of your house first.
  • Understand that you do not own the public parking spot in front of your house and it is first come, first served.
The following should be reported to LCSO for enforcement: 
  • Parking across sidewalks or blocking sidewalk ramps  
  • Parking close to stop signs, intersections, or fire hydrants
  • Expired tags/inspection stickers, illegal parking, and abandoned or suspicious vehicles

The LCSO non-emergency number is 703-777-1021. Contact communitystandards@brambleton.org if you have questions or need more information.
