Code Enforcement - Grass Reminder

From Borough of Crafton
Sent Mon, May 9 @ 9:04am

With all the rain and the subsequent grass growth I wanted to share a friendly reminder of what our ordinance 1561 CH 90 Code Enforcement Art II Property Maintenance Code has to say about grass and weeds:

302.4 Weeds. All premises and exterior property shall be maintained free from weeds or plant growth in excess of six inches and shall be landscaped so as to have either grass or other form of approved ground cover, growing or artificial or maintained in its natural state. All noxious weeds shall be prohibited. Weeds shall be defined as all grasses, annual plants and vegetation, other than trees or shrubs; provided, however, this term shall not include cultivated flowers and gardens. Landscaping shall not include any plants documented on the Pennsylvania DCNR "Invasive Plants in Pennsylvania" list, including but not limited to bamboo plants. The planting of hardy indigenous species is encouraged.
