Adams Stirling PLC


Starting January 1, 2015, association residents can plant personal use food gardens in their exclusive use backyards regardless of any restrictions in the governing documents. (Civ. Code § 4750.)

Crops cannot be used for commercial purposes or to be sold on the property. The change in law does not authorize the growing of marijuana or other non-food crops. (Civ. Code § 1940.10(a)(3).)

Associations can adopt reasonable rules and regulations related to the placement and maintenance of the gardens. (Civ. Code § 4750(e); § 1940.10(d).)
