HOA charges Denver homeowner $1,000 for trimming neighbor’s bushes!

By: Jaclyn Allen

A Denver man thought he was doing his neighborhood a favor by taking on some yard work. His Homeowner’s Association thought differently.

In his southwest Denver neighborhood, Curtiss Eckhardt isn’t beating around the bush about the bushes he trimmed.
“No, it looks bad. Worse than a bad haircut,” he said, examining the low-growing juniper shrub he walks by everyday.

But he says that for months he has been trying to get his HOA to cut back the shrubs growing over the sidewalks.

Weeks after he trimmed the bushes, his HOA’s attorney sent him a letter about a $1,075 assessment for bushes the letter said now have to be removed and replaced because of how he cut them.
“That’s an opinion. Not in my mind. I trimmed them to allow them room to grow,” said Eckhardt. “I think they (the HOA) came in pretty heavy-handed with both barrels blazing.”
