What Is a Homeowners’ Association?
A homeowners’ association (HOA) is a governing body that sets and enforces rules for a gated community, condominium, subdivision, or other type of planned community. If you purchase a condo or home within such a community, you automatically become a member of the homeowners’ association and must follow its guidelines and pay annual membership dues. Upon move-in, residents are given homeowner association documents outlining the rules. Most homeowners’ associations have very specific landscaping guidelines to ensure their community maintains a high aesthetic appeal. For example, you may not be allowed to paint your home certain colors or have a satellite dish installed. Residents are also usually put on a mailing list for a monthly or quarterly homeowner association newsletter announcing updates to these guidelines and events happening in the neighborhood.
Analyzing the Benefits and Drawbacks of HOA Living
There are benefits and drawbacks to having homeowners’ association rules to follow. On the one hand, property values typically remain high in such communities because of the well-maintained landscapes. You won’t ever have to worry about a neighbor painting their home a tacky color or having their property overgrown with weeds and other eyesores. When everyone takes care of their landscaping elements, it creates an aesthetically pleasing community with high curb appeal. Most communities with a homeowners’ association also have amenities for their members to enjoy, including well-maintained pools and parks. However, not everyone wants to live in a community with such strict rules. And not everyone can afford to pay the membership dues in addition to the other expenses of homeownership.
Meeting Homeowners’ Association Rules for Landscaping
If you choose to live in a community with a homeowners’ association, there are likely to be landscaping rules you must follow or face the penalties. How often you mow your grass, water your plants, or mulch your flowerbeds will likely be scrutinized. There may be height requirements for bushes and shrubs, or you may not be allowed to use specific colors of mulch. Some HOAs also dictate what type of plants and trees may be planted. Keeping up with your homeowners’ association rules for landscaping is much easier when you rely on a professional landscaping service such as Professional Lawn Care.
