Well it ain't a California thing, strange states from across the nation spread their strangeness to Garden Grove.
Two years ago in Nevada:
"... the five-member board liked the look of Fitting's lawn and supported his desire to keep it, Joseph said. Unfortunately, the neighborhood's codes, covenants and restrictions simply did not allow them to rule in his favor."
Four years ago in Nevada:
"... received a letter from the Summerlin North Community Association that stated the synthetic lawn was "an unapproved condition" and must be removed immediately."
Seven years ago in South Carolina:
And I don't see a date but Colorado too:
"... the city of Thornton banned synthetic grass, and mandated the removal of residential synthetic lawns. "
I don’t know that I am unafraid to be myself, but it is hard to be somebody else. -W. Shatner
