Planting a Hedge
Planting a Hedge?  Check your Property Lines.

If you plan on planting a hedge in your yard, you must ensure it is planted within your property lines. If the hedge is to be located in your front yard, or a side yard that faces a street, remember that most private property lines in the Town are set back at least five feet from the curb of the street, and in some instances maybe more. If you have a survey of your property, the location of the property line may easily be confirmed. Hedges should not be planted outside of your property line, or on the easement between your property line and the curb of the street. These easements should be maintained clear of any hedges as they serve to provide a buffer between your property and the street and are part of the public right-of-way. If you are unsure of where your property line lies, the Town will be able to assist you in identifying the minimum distance from the curb. For additional information please contact the Town Code Compliance Office at (305) 861-4863, ext. 230.
