Homeowner Fined for not Mowing Their Grass?

What if a homeowner decided not to mow the lawn anymore and belongs to a Home Owners Association?

What power does the HOA hold?

Do HOA’s have the right to tell you how to maintain your lawn?

Some developments give the HOA more enforcement rights than others. Some HOA’s have the power to evict any individuals who fail to mow their grass. Yes this is a very drastic measure but some HOA’s have the right to do this.

Most times HOA’s will fine any homeowner for violating a covenant, rule, or regulation such as not mowing their lawn. If these fines are not paid they usually have late fees incurring and the HOA can then file a lien on the property.

Some HOA’s can also deny access to common areas such as the pool, gym, or dog park until fines are paid.

Most HOA’s have the power to sue a homeowner who violates any restriction, covenant, or rule. The homeowner could end up in court for not keeping the grass to a certain length. This only happens after fines have not been paid and HOA demands have not been resolved.

HOA’s, in some instances, have the power to enter the homeowner’s property to resolve the infraction. For instance, the HOA can hire a professional to mow the lawn of the delinquent homeowner. This “hired” service tends to be five times what normal lawn care would be especially if the grass is too tall.

All HOA’s have procedures they must follow before any action can be taken on a homeowner. More times than not, the HOA will try to resolve any issue without incident or fines.

As a homeowner, it easy to follow the rules of the HOA. One of the rules we see in most HOA’s is mowing the grass and keeping the landscaping tidy. Complete Landscaping and Design can help with this.

If you are having trouble finding the time to mow your lawn or keeping your landscaping up to the regulations of your HOA, give us a call. (406) 756 1978

We will be happy to come out to your home for a Free Estimate on any of your landscaping needs.

The Dog and the Perfect Lawn

Can You Have a Perfect Lawn and Own a Dog at the Same Time?

Dogs are great. We love our dogs yet a downside to having a dog can be ugly, brown spots in our lawn.

Since most dog diets are high in protein, there will always be high levels of Nitrogen in their system. If your dog is relieving itself on your lawn, they will increase the Nitrogen levels of your lawn. Too much Nitrogen kills our lawns and creates the brown spots.


Here are a few tips for keeping your lawn looking healthy and green and singing a happy tune.

  • Water the lawn area immediately after the dog has done its business to help dilute the Nitrogen. Run the hose for about 10 seconds over the spot will help dilute the Nitrogen. Also, if you encourage your dog to drink more water, it will dilute the Nitrogen as well. But having them drink more water will increase your dog needs to pee.
  • Build an area for the dog to use the bathroom outside, using gravel, mulched, or artificial turf. Train them to go there instead of the grass.

  • Having the right kind of grass may also reduce these brown spots from showing up. Fescue and Rye-grass are the most resistant to Nitrogen due to the genetic makeup of the roots. Bermuda and Kentucky Bluegrass do need nitrogen to thrive but are very sensitive to fertilizer.
  • Dressing the lawn with less fertilizer will reduce the chances of brown spots. The combination of fertilizer and your dogs business could be too much Nitrogen for the lawn.

Building the dog a designated business area is the only effective option for 100%success. The other options above are a few more that can help.

We all love our lawns and our pets and we can have both.

If you are having trouble with brown spots in your lawn give us a Call for a Free Estimate on Lawn Care or to help Design a Dog Business Area.

Complete Landscaping and Design can help you recover your lawn back to being lush and green again.

Fertilize Shrubs in your Plant Beds?

Fertilized Landscape ShrubsExperts recommend that we should Fertilize our Grass four times a year for a Full and Healthy Lawn.

What about Fertilizing the Shrubs in our Plant Beds? Often times fertilizing our Shrubs gets overlooked.

We prune our Shrubs every year and we expect them to grow. But then, we don’t give them fertilizer with the nutrients that they need to grow to their full potential.

Over the years plants in garden beds will deplete all the nutrients out of the soil. We need to replenish these nutrients with fertilizer. This is important for the health of our Shrubs which will insures a long life for them.

Fertilizing once or twice a year makes for Lush Beautiful Shrubs in the garden beds. Complete Landscaping and Design can help you with this!


Give Us a Call and We Would Be Glad to Help with all your Fertilizing Needs!

Save Big Money on Lawn Care

professional lawn careMow Your Lawn or Pay For A Lawn Service?

Are you saving money by doing routine lawn care yourself?

Ever wondered how long you spend mowing the lawn that could have been spent doing something else?

Do you know the dangers associated with lawn care?

Is spending your time performing your own lawn care what you really want to spend your time on?

Researchers found on average 1248 days (roughly 3.5 years) of a person’s life is spent performing lawn care. That is a huge amount of time.

By factoring in the time it takes to mow, the cost of the equipment, the cost of maintaining the equipment, and the potential risks associated with mowing, some would argue that it’s actually less expensive to hire a professional company, like Complete Landscaping and Design to care for your lawn.

Below are some reasons you may want to consider hiring Complete Landscaping and Design to help you with your landscaping needs.

  • Save Money— $1,500 Riding Lawn Mower, $150 for a Blower, and $100 for a weed eater, mowing an average of 25 times per year will cost the homeowner $70 per cut in the first year. ($1750/25=$70).
  • Create more Free Time— Is there something else you could be doing? Is spending roughly 29,952 hours of your life mowing the lawn what you want to spend your time on?

Would you rather spend time with the family hiking, fishing or enjoying your favorite pastime a little more.

How much money is your time worth? Taking an average salary of $50k/year you could save well over $100k over a lifetime. What could you do with this extra money?

 

Lawn Safety Sign

  • Stay safe —According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 80,000 people are taken to the emergency room every year due to lawn related injuries.

Lawn equipment is some of the most dangerous items in any household. Why not leave these risks to the professionals?

  • Admire the Professionalism—Most lawn Professionals have years of experience and an eye for making lawns look great each and every time. Complete Landscaping and Design Professionals have decades of experience in the landscaping industry. Let us help you take pride in your well maintained lawns.

By uncovering the true costs of mowing the lawn why not let the Complete Landscaping and Design Professionals handle this task for you?

Like the Rolling Stones song says, “Time is on my side;” and with Complete Landscaping and Design, “Yes it is!”

Complete Landscaping and Design Spring 2017 Newsletter

 Spring 2017 Newsletter

Thatch defined: A lawn thatch is an excessive amount of buildup of unwanted material that can deny your lawn of the air, water, and sunlight that it needs. The excessive amount of buildup can cause your grass to stop growing and make it prone to insects and lawn diseases. Lawn thatch is composed of moss, pine needles, or dead grass, it can also refer to a dead layer of sod that is left over after an insect infestation

When you should de-thatch your lawn: The best time to have de-thatching done is in the spring and early fall, that way it gives your lawn time to recover before it gets too hot or too cold. Some lawns will need to be re-seeded in order to heal properly if there was a lot of moss or bad grasses that were removed. This process is recommended yearly for some lawns.

Benefits of lawn thatching: It is recommended to be done every year to ensure your lawn is taken care of and looks it’s best. To know if you need it yearly, here are some signs. If you have a lot of moss in your lawn or dead grasses which can be from the type of grass you have in your lawn or the various amounts of sunlight your lawn is getting.  Pine needle build up around your yard can lead to choking out sunlight and water that your lawn needs and they are also acidic. By having your lawn dethatched not only will it look healthier, it will allow and increase airflow to the underlining of the soil and allow water and nutrients to go straight to the root system. It will also reduce infestations of insects and pests and forces them out of the lawn. It will also reduce grass diseases such as leaf spot, summer patch, and dollar spot.

Services we provide:

  • Lawn Mowing

  • Full Landscape Design

  • Estate/Garden Maintenance

  • Fertilization

  • Weed Spraying

  • Tree Removal & Pruning

  • Spring/Fall Clean-ups

  • Natural & Cultured Masonry

  • Retaining Walls

  • Sprinkler Systems

  • Water Features

  • Pool & Spa Construction

  • And much more! Anything landscape related, we can do.
