FOCUS ON THE CAMINO DEL SOL LARGE COMMON AREA PROJECT
 
 
 
Our Major Camino Del Sol Beautification Project continues to develop nicely after 3+ years.
 
This was one of the three significant initiatives planned by the HOA Board between 2014-2017 in order to maintain the integrity of our neighborhood and the value of our properties. 
 
The Texas Rangers at the south end and the Fairy Dusters further to the north have grown by 4 times their original size! Thanks again to all of our wonderful volunteers who worked on this two year long project!
 
You can see more pictures of our projects in our Photo Albums.

OUR "TUCSON TIPS"  PAGE:     WHAT CAN YOU FIND THERE?
 
 
1,    ATTENTION ALL HOMEOWNERS BUFFEL GRASS:
 
We all need to be aware of the danger of Buffel grass in our subdivision.  It is a safety issue because it burns hot (1600 degrees) and when it burns, it will return but native plants will not.  In addition,it spreads quickly.  It competes with native plants for nutrients and will choke them out. 
 
Please go to the Tucson Tips page for more information and websites you can access with videos. We have this already in DH3East and we need your help to eradicate it. 
 
 
2. GARDENING INFORMATION: 
 
We also have an area on the Tucson Tips page  about Gardens. This area of the page  includes specific HOA news and general sources of information about gardening in the desert. For instance, did you know there is a Gardening Club in Green Valley? Their details and also several websites about gardening and the desert can be found on the page already. New information will be added from time to time.  
 
NOTE: New Guidelines have  been added to help you in planning the right plants and trees to create a wonderful desert landscape across our HOA. You can find out about plants that require little water, invasive plants in Arizona to avoid and we have a guideline with some 400 desert plants to help you. 
 
3. PLACES TO VISIT AND SOME OF TUCSON'S OLDEST RESTAURANTS TOO
 
Have you eaten at Blue Willow? Or do you know where the Sweetwater Wetlands can be found?
