Yard Maintenance Standards

High Grass & Weeds, overgrowth and underbrush must typically be kept cut and maintained to a certain standard by the property owner, business or tenant depending upon the circumstances. If the responsible party does not properly maintain it, some departments may have the legal authority to take the corrective actions required and invoice the owner for any services provided. Unpaid invoices are typically recorded as liens against the property. Maintaining Alleys, Easements, and Right-of-Ways are also often the responsibility of the adjacent or abutting property owner, even though they may not be “using” the area in question.

Please keep informed of the current Water Restrictions and Landscape Requirements that may apply to your situation.  You may want to review the information at the following link:
