Parkway Maintenance

As part of your visual home inspection while driving through the neighborhood keep your eye out for parkways or property on the side of a house or fence. This is a good example of low maintenance parkways.

The parkway where the arrow is pointing to has overgrown dead weeds and for some people driving by this every day will bother them. Keep this in mind because it could lead to future problems with these neighbors.

The other parkway is nothing but dirt with a soil erosion problem. Some of these parkways can become eyesores to neighbors and there is very little you can do about it unless there is a homeowners association that will deal with difficult neighbors.

Some parkways are actually maintained by a homeowners association to eliminate these problems.
