Backyard landscaping encroaching on right of way

Mistake May Cost You

Homeowners, be aware that plantings, hardscaping, and structures within LWDD’s canal rights-of-way are not allowed. Unpermitted encroachments within the right-of-way will have to be removed. Considering the expense of installation and removal, this can be a costly mistake. Don’t waste your time or money. It is always a good idea to contact us and verify property lines before any construction project. Send us an email at and be sure before you plant.
