We just did a complete renovation of our front yard. Everything is new and we now have the nicest front in the entire neighborhood. As part of the renovation, our general contractor planted 50-60 new plants. The HOA is saying we don’t have enough ground coverage and need to plant more. We are of the opinion that HOA is acting arbitrarily against us as 1) the plants are young and will cover more ground when they mature, and 2) there are houses in our neighborhood with FAR fewer plants and ground cover.
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
