Artificial Turf

In the landscaping of home sites, homeowners are urged to utilize plant material, irrigation systems and maintenance practices that conserve water.  Utilization of a landscape architect or designer, experience in designing water conserving landscapes is encouraged.
Existing Guidelines provide for non-living, durable landscape materials (i.e. decorative rocks or chips) being utilized on the grounds of any lots, only to supplement live plantings.  The general guideline of the Covenants and Guidelines is that no more than 10% of the landscaped area of any lot (front or back) will be non-living material.  As such, homeowners are still encouraged to seek a natural option first; combining bedding plantings, mulch materials and turf grass where possible to enhance their back and front yards.
However, in an effort to support water conservation and to allow alternatives for homeowners where turf will not grow or is impossible to sustain effectively, due to water restrictions, or more specific reasons, the ACC has adopted a guideline amendment regarding artificial turf applications.
Each application for the use of artificial turf on a lot
  • will be considered on a case by case basis,
  • must be approved prior to installation
  • must meet all of the qualifications described in the following document
