I live in an HOA community in West Palm Beach. I have two tall shrubs (about six and a half feet tall) in the front of my home. They were planted by the previous owner in 2003. I purchased the home in 2004. The architectural standards at that time did not specify a maximum height for shrubs. In 2006, the board decided to impose a maximum shrub height of five feet. Because one of these shrubs is a topiary, I would have to chop off the top “globe” on the topiary—thereby destroying its beauty — in order to comply.
