Did you know that grass and weeds more than 12 inches in height is considered an unsanitary condition and a code violation? City code (City of Austin Code 10-5, Article 2) requires that grass and weeds be maintained below 12 inches. 

 

While short grass and weeds may look nice, it is also an important way to prevent rodents, insects and stagnant water from developing as a result of overgrowth. When grass and weeds are maintained below 12 inches, our community not only looks better, but it's also cleaner and safer. 

Do you have concerns about tall grass and weeds?
