There's the pandemic and the natural disasters, and now this: a homeowners' organization in Littleton, Colorado, is at war with a resident over the color of its garden land.
Homeowner Isaac Puckett filed a lawsuit Monday against his HOA, which is suing him for damages due to a choice of garden bark that does not match the "red cedar gorilla hair" milk that is pre-approved, the Denver Channel reported. Tuesday.
Mr. Puckett claims that he submitted an application to the HOA to do some gardening in front of his townhouse. When he did not hear back, he started work and after completing the project, the HOA came back and rejected his request, according to the article.
The HOA said in a lawsuit filed over the summer that his choice of black mulch was not the recommended one, according to the news agency.
"They are asking for damages for society," Puckett told a reporter. "They are asking the courts to issue an injunction to force me to put the garden back to the original gorilla hair protection."
