Hi, I live in Planters row and can explain the HOA fees and what it covers. The fees are 1 dollar a day, which is 365$ a year. It covers the "common" area for planters row which consists of a nice pool, club house, child play ground area and a couple tennis courts. There is also a board with various members and I think the fees pay them as well. These areas are very well kept as far as I can tell. They mow all the grass around it once a week or so. You have to have a magnet key that looks like a credit card to access these areas and is only available to the residents of planters row but you are able to bring a "guest" with you if you live here. The pool has lots of lounge chairs, sun chairs, shaded areas and gazebo type things, pretty nice. The roads are covered by the country (greenville or mauldin) and they recently completely repaved the entire subdivision. There is trash collection every friday. Not sure who collects it but they are there every friday and I don't pay a separate fee for trash collection. I bought my home in 2013 for 182K and it's valued at 202K as of the fourth quarter 2014, I think this is a desirable neighborhood to live in as the city of mauldin and greenville continue to grow. You can google images of houses and the "common area" or clubhouse/pool, etc. My father was a contractor and builder for years in the SF bay area. The houses here are pretty nice compared to most in the greenville/mauldin area. I would say the materials used in the contruction are a little on the cheaper side compared to what I'm used to in california, but they have different codes here and don't have to build/worry about large earth quakes. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase and this neighborhood. Everyone seems to look out for each other here and I haven't met anyone in the subdivision that wasn't as nice as could be. Hope this information helps.... more
I want to find a pool builder as well. I don't know of any in the area. My next door neighbor has a pool in their backyard though. I want to ask and see if they had a contractor come and put it in for them and see if they would recommend them. Maybe you can ask friends and neighbors for suggestions as well. http://bluehavenkc.com/about-us/... more
I would say that the best way to find the best pest control for you is to ask around for references. Your friends and family must know of some good pest control companies in your area. It is also a good idea to try out a bunch of different companies before you stick with just one. This can take a lot of time, but it is definitely worth it in the long run.

My wife was involved in an auto accident and she has been trying to find a place where she can take her car in for repair. I got upset with her because of the car accident and I told her that it was her responsibility to get the car fixed. I am not going to be involved in the process.
There are a lot of factors to be considered. If it is just a basic key you can have a key copied for just a few bucks at a hardware store! Some home security systems require keys with an electronic chip in them and for this you may need a locksmith. I can't imagine an expensive job costing much over $100. http://www.locksmithservices.com.au/... more
