When budgeting your outdoor work time, please keep in mind that the 2020 Property Maintenance Code of New York State has established standards for the maximum height of weeds (this includes grass);

"Except as provided for in statute, local law, ordinance, or other regulations, all developed areas of a premises that are intended to be used by building occupants or the public shall be maintained free from weeds in excess of 10 inches (254 mm). Noxious weeds shall be prohibited."
