Irrigation & Landscaping

The current contracted landscaping company is BrightView. There are multiple contracts with BrightView within Montecito.

  • The first community contract is with the CDD. BrightView mows lawns, cuts bushes, trims limbs up to 12ft, treats with pesticides, and appropriately uses fertilizer for all common areas, including the strip of land between the street and the homeowners’ driveways. They are also charged with repairs and maintenance on the master irrigation system.
  • The second contract is with the Townhome HOA. BrightView mows lawns, cuts bushes, trims limbs up to 12ft, treats with pesticides, and appropriately uses fertilizer for the front and backyard. They are also charged with maintaining the sprinklers in the front and backyards.
  • The third contract is with the Single Family HOA. BrightView mows the lawns, treats with pesticides, and appropriately uses fertilizer.

The master irrigation system
The system is comprised of three (3) pump stations and is separated into five (5) irrigation controllers. The irrigation system is supplied water from the onsite ponds/lakes.

Montecito uses an industry standard two-wire decoder system. Troubleshooting the two-wire decoder system can be time consuming and requires strict schedule adherence by BrightView.

Water Restrictions
It is important to note Montecito is NOT impacted by the lawn watering restrictions of Brevard county, as they do not apply to retention ponds, nor do they apply to homeowners hose-watering. Please call St. Johns Water Management District at (321)-984-4940 if you have further questions.

It’s raining, why is the irrigation system running?
Each of the three pump stations contain rain sensors. Rain sensors are typically set to 1/2” of rain. The water collects in the sensor and shuts the system off once it reaches the set point.

It just started raining but the sprinkler system is running. The sprinkler system will not shut off until the rain sensor has collected the 1/2″ of rain needed to shut it off.

If it rained a short while prior to scheduled irrigation, the irrigation will still run unless shut off by the rain sensor.

Rain sensors may fail and need to be replaced once the malfunction is identified. Please take time to report the issue by submitting an online ticket.

A sprinkler is gushing, what should I do?
A gushing sprinkler may be unsightly and annoying, however, it is not an emergency. Montecito is on a system where the water is recycled back through to the ponds and re-used. Please take time to report the issue by submitting an online ticket.

What’s going on with the sprinklers?
Please review the sprinkler schedule, as well as Facility Manager Report on Irrigation updates for any notifications and updates for current and pending repairs. Please contact Brittany Robberecht if you have questions regarding the sprinkler schedule for your individual property.

HOA Violation Letters

Communities that enforce rules are more likely to maintain their value and are more desirable to potential buyers. Violation letters are written based on the Declarations of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions that govern each of the HOAs. Only the Townhome HOA and the Single-Family HOA have violation policies.

A representative from Leland Management performs two site visits per month to perform inspections of the physical appearance and condition of the homeowner’s property.

Leland Management also follows-up on complaints of violations and maintenance issues received from residents, association members or the CDD Board.

Both Associations send three letters to the homeowner; the first is a reminder. Please contact Leland Management with any questions regarding a violation letter received or to report an HOA violation.


On Street Parking

The Montecito CDD Board of Supervisors decided at its February 2018 meeting to start placing reminders on vehicles that are not parked in accordance with the parking rules of the Montecito CDD. This is being done in an effort to increase safety in the community. Should these reminder letters not prove effective, the Board would look to change the rules to make street parking more restrictive.


Following is a copy of the parking reminder form.

Montecito Community Development District (CDD) Parking Reminder

Please note that parking on the street is currently allowed in Montecito. However, in order to continue to allow on-street parking, we ask that all vehicles be parked in a safe, considerate manner. Your vehicle was found parked as indicated below. Please consider this a friendly reminder to park in the correct manner so that we can continue to allow on-street parking in our community. We appreciate your cooperation.

______ 1. Your vehicle is blocking a driveway.

______ 2. Your vehicle is blocking a sidewalk.

______ 3. Your vehicle is blocking access to a residential mailbox. Mail carriers require a 30-foot approach to a mailbox (15 feet before and 15 feet after the mailbox). The mail carrier may not deliver mail if the approach is not clear. Please park so that you and your neighbors can continue to receive mail without interruption.

______ 4. Your vehicle is parked facing the wrong direction on the street.

______ 5. Your vehicle is parked with tires on the grass. Parking on the grass can lead to costly sprinkler repairs. Please help keep your CDD costs down by avoiding parking on the grass.

______ 6. Your vehicle is parked too close to a stop sign. The City of Satellite Beach prohibits parking within 30 feet upon the approach to a stop sign. Parking too close to a stop sign can block visibility of vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists approaching the stop sign and lead to accidents. Please park further from the stop sign to help keep our community safe.


Please review the complete parking and towing rules.
