BACKYARD GARDENS

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).)
