Residents and property owners have responsibility to maintain their yards or lots on a regular basis.  Owners/occupants should keep their lawns or lots mowed, and bushes and trees trimmed.  All cuttings, clippings, and other similar debris should be removed and properly disposed of.

Weeds include:

  • Any plant which ordinarily grows without cultivation, is not grown for landscaping, slope stabilization, drainage control or food production purposes

  • Grass or weeds over nine (9) inches in height

  • Any plant that grows in such accumulation as to become a fire danger.

See Chapter 8.04 of the Fountain Municipal Code for more information on weeds and refuse.
