Morris Management FAQ - Architectural Changes

Morris Management's frequently asked questions provide answers to all your queries regarding architectural control. Get tips to get your project approved with our comprehensive FAQ.

Homeowner FAQs: Architectural Changes

The architectural integrity of a community association is one of the biggest selling points of living in an HOA. Maintaining “curb appeal” and supporting long-term property value can only happen if everyone in the community is on the same page about the aesthetic of the community. When it comes to making changes to that aesthetic, there are a few options homeowners typically have available.

  • When do I need to get ACC (Architectural Control Committee) Approval for putting in my back yard landscaping?

    Most of the time ACC approval is required prior to any work taking place if back yard landscaping installation or modifications involve drainage changes, decks or patios, retaining walls, water features, or elements (including trees) that will be visible over the top of your privacy fence. However, the specific requirements for your community may differ. 

    Every community has different architectural requirements, so you should always refer to your community’s Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s), adopted Board Resolutions, and Community Rules for more information. In addition, you are always welcome to contact your community’s Association Manager for assistance.

  • Can I plant some flowers along the walkway up to my unit?

    You should always review your community’s Rules and Regulations and your Association’s Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) prior to making any exterior modifications to your home. 

    Most of the time, if you are in a single family home and you own and maintain the area where you are contemplating installing seasonal or perennial flowering plants, you may be able to proceed.  Flowering shrubs, bushes, and trees almost always require approval before installation. 
    If you do not own the area where you are contemplating installation of some flowers (such as a condominium or townhome), you should check with your community’s Association Manager prior to installation.
