To clarify a bit more...homeowners assume responsibility for any lawn care in the enclosed area only.

I was on the fence about living in a 55+ community to begin with. Jellybean just reminded me of things I don't want to give up. Plus, my grandkids spend the summers with me now, and I'd like to keep it that way without having a restriction on their length of stay.

and I do WALK my dog thank you.. He just likes staying outside and enjoying the sunshine.

Awh I wasn't angry at all! I just thought you made a seemingly quick decision. That's completely your choice, and I'm sure you know: only you know the best choice.... But you guys did raise a good question

As far as i know - you own the land. You pay property tax for that town - I know that.

Like someone said, the reasons for none of the above are that they want the grass/yard unobstructed for mowing purposes.

My hobbies are herb gardening, feeding the birds, and growing different types of bushes that are animal- and bird-friendly. That's why i knew i was not ready to leave my rural land yet. I think alot of it will depend on what activities you enjoy the most in your life, too.

All of the above are permitted in our community. As far as "activities you enjoy"? As far as I know, most activities are available in Delaware, and everything in Delaware is close by.
OK...maybe not too much downhill skiing or mountain climbing

It's not exactly the mountain climbing you mentioned, but it's a "reasonable facsimile".

Hey I was thinking... in communities where you can't have a fence you could do an invisible fence?

Lauriedeee... of course!
