Only Bermuda grass may be used in the lawn. It must be cut to between 2" and 2.25" inches at all times. Bare spots are forbidden, except as cleared for the flower beds for the purple tulips. Only tan bark mulch may be used - no pine straw, no red cedar bark, and no crushed granite, marble, or other stone.
No rubber tires of any size will be used as raised planting beds, sand boxes, or other features of the landscape.
Only rubber tires on cars, pickups, vans, minivans, tricycles, bicycles, and lawn equipment (lawn mower, wheelbarrow, etc.) may be visible around the property. All lawn equipment, bicycles, tricycles, cars, pickups, vans, minivans, and such wheeled items must be stored inside the garage overnight.
No dolls, action figures, or other toys may be left on the yard, in the play areas, on the porch, or where they might be visible from the sidewalk. This includes dogs, cats, and similar animals kept as pets and playmates for children. Children will play ONLY in the back yard, behind the fence. They will play quietly at all times. If we can see them or hear them from the sidewalk or in the backyard next door, they are not playing quietly enough. No barking dogs allowed. Cats may not hunt lizards, mice, squirrels, or birds. They may hunt rats if any sneak in from outside the development - but only rats. No rats may be kept as pets. No snakes may be kept as pets. Only mammals, fish, and birds may be kept as pets. All animals shall be trained to eliminate waste ONLY on the property of the owner. No exceptions. No wild birds, snakes, or other animals are allowed to eliminate waste on HOA property - it is unsanitary.
