If I were in their spot I’d be placing a privacy fence around my “wild” area so I could maintain it the way I think it needs to be and not forced to annihilate it because the township doesn’t have the ability to think outside the “box”.This is becoming one of those issues that is escalating in areas all over the country.Not allowing us as property owners to maintain OUR yards ..OUR way.If we want vegetable gardens instead of lawn..it is our RIGHT to make that choice..without being penalized by our local government.

I expect lawn culture will die out before the end of the 21st century. Probably even before car culture. A lawn literally is a status symbol that literally screams not only “I have money to burn,” but “I have resources to burn.” Like all forms of rigid horticulture, it also symbolizes civilization as order imposed on chaos, from the point of view that wilderness is chaos. The younger generations, sticker shocked by the cost of insurance and other burdens of car ownership, are voting with their feet for higher population density cities. Suburban America will have to re-think land use in order to remain economically viable. With any luck, in a few decades it will be the lawn fetishists who feel the need to exercise their private property rights behind privacy fences.
