Nice to see the town is on top of eyesores like overgrown lawns. I guess they don't have any real problems.

If any law is to be passed on lawns, it should be to ban them not to mandate mowing them.

But Rockingham is kind of a nasty/snobby town in my opinion. I recall seeing land for sale there that the owners wouldn't even be able to legally camp on because of zoning rules there.

Edited to add: Just noticed that was in 2009.

I've lived in plenty of cities that have had similar ordinances, either absolute height limits or limits against allowing the lawn to go to seed. I used to hate the idea, but as a homeowner for thirty-plus years I can see the appeal to not wanting to be next door to the one house on the block with grass two feet tall.

I see no appeal living next to a lawn, environmental tumors is what they are.
