What if my HOA doesn't allow me to change my landscaping?

Beginning May 5, 2022, an HOA “may not enact or enforce a governing document that prohibits, or has the effect of prohibiting, a lot owner of a detached dwelling from incorporating water wise landscaping on the property owner's property.”

Water wise landscaping is defined as:

  • Installation of plant materials suited to the microclimate and soil conditions that can:
    1. Remain healthy with minimal irrigation once established or
    2. be maintained without the use of overhead spray irrigation
  • Use of water for outdoor irrigation through proper and efficient irrigation design and water application
  • Use of other landscape design features that
    1. Minimize the need of the landscape for supplemental water from irrigation
    2. Reduce the landscape area dedicated to lawn or turf
