Moncton Taking Long Grass Action
Moncton is moving to curb uncut lawns with a bylaw that will see fines ranging from $140 to $2,100 for property owners who let their grass grow taller than 20 centimetres. The rules will apply to vacant land if the city deems the grass a safety hazard, such as obstructing pedestrians or motorists.
Last year, Riverview introduced a bylaw that set a similar height limit but with fines between $50 and $1,070. Dieppe also curbs grass length at 20 centimetres.
