Having a home that backs onto a public reserve can be quite scenic. Homeowners can look out their windows to enjoy the naturalized areas that are usually incorporated along trails, parks and wetlands. Native grasses and plants provide valuable habitat and food sources to local wildlife while also helping to clean our air and watershed.
Unfortunately, these beautiful parks and trails can be easily damaged when homeowners hire contractors who use them to access backyards to make improvements. If you are a homeowner who is planning any backyard renovations that require access through a public reserve such as a trail or park, please be sure to get permits. Learn more in this blog.
