gardener big island hawaii
Don’t ask me how many Hawaii gardeners we have hired to work on our yard at our second home. When we’re not there all of the time, plants keep on growing regardless. Plus, we have an HOA, which routinely sends out letters to many of my neighbors, including us, threatening action if our yards are not “maintained.” Yet, we do not have a clear idea of what it is the HOA desires. They say they don’t want vegetation growing higher than the eaves, but that’s not what they mean. They mean not over the eaves. Lots of owners in our community have super tall trees in the middle of their yards. But how close is too close?
