Hello, just moved here with my mom and dad. Never had to deal with HOA.
My dad has a garden and he decided to put a "covering" to shade it. It's from the ceiling to the fence, will we be in trouble for this ?

Depends on your HOA. All HOA's are not the same. What do your CC&R's say. Have you talked to the HOA about the project to get their approval. If not it's possible you'll get fined if it's against the rules.

Welcome to Arizona and welcome to City-Data!

It is hard to say. I know in the winter, when there is a hard freeze warning, people in lots of neighborhoods, including those with HOA's, will throw a sheet or blanket over their frost sensitive plants over-night. They usually do not stay on very long.

Is this a permanent-type covering that your dad is intending to leave up for weeks on end, while the plants are getting established? Or is it just for a short time? Most plants have planting instructions and the instructions usually tell you what time of the year is best to plant the new plant and/or sow the seeds. Many instructions suggest where in the yard they should be planted, such as "East side exposure suggested".

Did he call the HOA office and inquire first? It is hard to predict what will happen. They may be fine with a temporary shading for a couple of weeks to get the brand-new plants safely established. It doesn't hurt to check with them and let them know exactly what your dad is trying to do.

Good luck with the garden!
