While we’re all trying to figure out how to care for our lawn during a drought, we still need to remember that following the City’s rules on weeds, trailers, and tree trimming is important for maintaining the beauty of South Jordan.
Remember that while you may like those nice “wild flowers,” your weeds are not your neighbor’s idea of quality landscaping. Weeds or grass must not exceed 6-inches in height, including the fence line. Also, the entire front and street-side yards must be landscaped and maintained.
Please remember that any trailer, RV, or boat must be stored behind the frontline of the home or in a street-side yard that is behind a 6-foot obscuring wall.
You might not mind ducking below a branch on the sidewalk, but your six-foot-tall neighbor won’t be too happy when a branch smacks them in the face. Mature trees should be pruned 7 feet above the sidewalk. Sidewalks must also be clear of foliage and overgrowth. While we take a light tone with this reminder about seasonal code infractions, please know that these rules will be enforced.
So, be a good neighbor and follow the City ordinance, which you can read in its entirety on the City website at sjc.utah.gov.
