Lawn/Turf Installation: Can I plant grass in my yard?

The installation of new turf in residential front yards, common areas, medians and non-residential developments is prohibited.

Turf installation in side and rear yards is limited to 50% or less of the total square footage, or 100 square feet whichever is greater, provided no turf area dimension is less than ten feet. A maximum of 5,000 square feet of turf is allowed at one property

If you currently have water efficient landscaping in your front yard it is prohibited to remove and replace that landscaping with turf, regardless of building permit issue date.
