I wonder, being in Florida, and the grass to be green. when we have no rain, the grass
dies, and then if you live in the hoa, they wish grass green, and depending on the town, they will fine you big for wasting water? Is this not like the grass cutter? maybe, just
try the nice approach. The other solution, maybe so near is not best for you.

Only a few houses in this 35 house (total) community are actualy "zero lot lines" (maybe 15 - 20) and that is only on ONE side only, the other side of the property has a "little" (like 5 - 15 feet) of space. That also means the Lanai's are close together too, especially when they go end-to-end the length of the rear of the house, so people try to put up bamboo blinds, plastic lattice, grow ivy, whatever acts as a "view barrier". Some Lanais are only 5 feet apart from each other. We are thankful we are on a "pie" shaped inside corner lot and our back yard is so much wider than the front, thus we have quite a bit of "space" between our neighbors Lanais !!

As far as cutting the grass by one company and incorporating it into common fees, they now do that is a few other sections of this development, in other communities such as the Condos and the "Villas". I think it's between $110 - $125 per month depending on size of lot. GREAT for the snowbirds that are here six months of the year but would NOT work in this more "residential house" section that we reside in.

Florida, at least this County, is still considered in a "drought" therefore watering the lawn which a long time ago was TWICE a week is NOW limited to only ONCE a week. Since most people have St. Augustine grass, they all have irrigation (sprinkler) systems. This time of year (Winter) is when we get the least amount of rainfall and need to water at least 1/2" per zone a week. Once June 1st gets here the "rainy season" starts and you can shut OFF your irrigation systems and let Mother Nature turn on her "monsoons" !!
