Home & Lot Owners

After purchasing your land, there are mandatory VWP HOA requirements to keep your lot in order. Regular maintenance of removing hazardous fuels from your land (sick, dead and clustered trees as well as junipers) will reduce how hot a fire will burn and how quickly it may spread. Even though you are unsure as to where your house will be placed on your lot, you can still mitigate the fire potential on your land, and get to know what wildflowers and bushes grow on your lot and where they shouldn't grow and be planted (like next to structures and decks).
