Dallas man ordered to lose fake grass

A Dallas man who installed artificial turf in his yard after failing to grow grass said he is giving up his battle with City Hall to keep his faux lawn.

Jose Escobedo, who said each of his three attempts to grow real grass in his yard had failed, had appealed orders by the Dallas city staff and the city Landmark Commission to remove the turf, which officials said was inappropriate for the historic district, to the City Plan Commission, The Dallas Morning News reported Friday.

Brandy Escobedo, Escobedo's daughter and his translator at Thursday's commission meeting, said her father decided to give up the fight a short while after members voted 12-1 to uphold the order to remove the turf.

"It was just going to cost him too much, and it was just better to let it go," she said.

The order gives Escobedo 30 days to remove the turf or face fines.

"He said he's not going to try to plant any more grass there," Brandy Escobedo said. "It's just going to be dirt."

Was he part of an HOA? I hear they can be tough. However, it can't be good for resale value if your nextdoor neighbor has fake grass or a bunch of pink flamingoes.
