People who live in cities, towns, and suburban areas should
check to see if it is legal to have gardens in their area or they could be fined.



Man fights fines of $130,000 for garden that others feel is an eye sore

Seriously? These people must be bored. Eyesores are abandoned buildings, overgrown and filthy vacant lots, dead trees, overflowing garbage, etc. where I live, but a garden? I wish.

Don't like the garden? Don't look.

I agree. He has little concern for those around him.

It looks like a weed-choked yard with debris scattered around it. I'm a messy gardener myself in many respects, but geez, I do mow my lawn regularly so that at least the worst of the weeds are confined to those beds in the back! I'm also a collector of tacky yard art, but none of that junk looks like either yard art or gardening equipment.

.Looks like he is trying to raise a dead tree laying on the ground,and weeds ... but he is raising food just like others do, just not as neat.Many places do not allow you to raise a garden in your yard at all..

That's a mess. I dislike government interference in private property rights, and would never live in a place with an HOA but
he needs to be doing this in the back of the property or out in a rural area where no one cares. Recently several people in my area (including me) have put up a greenhouse (or several) in the front yard because it's the only area that gets sun with all the tall trees and 2-story homes. It's been 3 years so far with no complaints, but I keep my fingers crossed.

Exactly WHY I will only live in an HOA neighborhood. Although the neighborhood in that article looks rundown and junky to begin with. I prefer neighbors who mow their grass, don't have junk cars in their yards, etc. The dude in the article should move to a farm if he wants to be a farmer.

Some people just like to push the envelop because that's the way they are, out to prove that they can do whatever they want no matter what the ordinances or HOA rules say. This guy sounds like one of those guys.

If you don't like the rules, buy or rent somewhere else.
