SYNOPSIS

The urban gardener has the added challenge of dealing with limitations that may not be so apparent. An insect infestation will announce itself loud and clear, but policies and regulations can easily be misunderstood. Just like insects, zoning regulations can be both a threat and an asset to a garden. This guide reviews Residential Zoning Designations; allowable structures; understanding water, power and soil regulations; large and small livestock regulations, and sale of produce.
