Well, the recent thread on mandatory lawn mowing certainly gives weight
to concerns over just that. Because mandatory lawn mowing has not been
implemented to mean that IF you decide to grow a grass lawn, you have to
keep it cut. Instead, it has made GRASS LAWNS mandatory, to the
exclusion of herbs, flowers, and vegetable gardens.
The statutes I have seen usually say something about how non-woody
vegetation over 10" in height must be cut, usually followed by some
blather about how this protects "public health." Trees are okay because
they are woody and perennial. But think about the life history of most
of the herbs, flowers, and vegetables.
So yes, I think that some do seriously think that "the state" may very
well not only check your garden, but cut it down and send you the bill.
And these concerns have factual basis.
