Landscaping Ideas and Regulations

Willett Pond – PondSmart Landscape Management

This document provides general guidelines and applicable restrictions regarding landscaping your property. It is critical to always keep in mind that:

1.) For most of the homes on the Pond, Neponset River Landholding Association (“Landholding”) is the actual property owner of the shoreline and a “landstrip” which generally is 10-30 feet in depth surrounding the Pond. As such, any alterations of any kind require their approval.

2.) WPCPA must also approve of any alterations of any kind.

3.) The Walpole or Westwood Conservation Committees must also approve of alterations of any kind.

Our organization will help you in navigating these approval processes and offer suggestions. Please contact us at to learn more. A copy of our Pondsmart Shoreline Policy 2020, is available here for download and review.
