Maintaining your yard – Edging

Part of Joining an HOA is Being a good neighbor. After fielding some complaints from residents It has come to my attention that several of the lawns in our fair community are in desperate need of edging. Which is greatly lowering the curb appeal of the houses around them. 
There will be an inspection in two weeks on Monday December 5th.  
If you can take the time to make sure that your lawn meets the minimum edging criteria of two inches past the area where the concrete meets the dirt. 
Below is the article that explains the rules laid out by the HOA charter… 
Our CC&Rs explain in Article IX Section-8…
Maintenance of lots. Except as may be maintained by the association for townhome lots pursuant to section 5(b) of Article IV hereof, Each homeowner shall keep his lot in an orderly condition and shall keep the improvements Theron in a suitable state of repair, promptly repairing any damage thereto by fire or other casualty. No clothesline may be erected or maintained on any lot. Each owner shall further maintain the yard and landscaping on his lot in a clean and neat condition and shall keep his yard mowed and landscaping trimmed so as not to be unsightly. No lot shall be used in whole or in part for storage of rubbish of any character whatsoever nor for the storage of any property or thing which will cause any noise that will cause any noise that will disturb the peace and quiet of the occupants of the surrounding lots, and no trash, rubbish, stored materials, wrecked or inoperable vehicles, vehicles that have been unlicensed for more than thirty (30) days, or similar unsightly items shall be allowed to remain on any lot outside an enclosed structure; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not be constructed to prohibit temporary deposits of trash, rubbish, or other debris for collection by governmental or other similar garage and trash removal units.  If the owner fails or refuses to comply with the foregoing, the declarant may demand that the owner promptly comply with the same by mailing a notice thereof the owner at his address specified in his contract to purchase such lot or by posting such notice of the lot. If the owner has not complied there with within five (5) days thereafter, the declarant may enter and correct the same at the owners expense. Each owner, by acquiring a Lot (s) subject to these restrictions, agrees to pay such cost promptly upon demand be Declarant. No such entry as provided herein shall be deemed a trespass. 
To clarify… 
The edging and lawn care of some of the homes in this community are in desperate need of edging. 
This inspection will only focus on the:
·         Sidewalk (each side of the sidewalk)
·         Front Curb   
·         Driveway
The basis of measurement of deciding if action needs to be take will be a 2 inch measurement from the point the concrete meets the dirt. When you bought your home in a residential area that had an HOA you obligated yourself to take care of your lawn for the betterment of everyone. We thank you for looking into this and our community thanks you for taking the time to take care of your beautiful home!
