1. Tenants are not allowed to alter or change the landscaping of a rental property without the landlord’s permission, but what about putting in a garden? The law supports landlords in determining that any alteration to the landscape, even with the intent to improve it, is not allowed without express permission. Many tenants might argue that a garden is an improvement to the property and may even add value. When it comes to putting in a garden, however, landlords have the law on their side, and any tenant who starts digging is violating the lease agreement. It’s a good idea to emphasize in the lease agreement that any changes to the landscape of the property is a violation of the lease agreement, even if it may seem like an improvement, such as planting a tree, cutting down trees or shrubs or putting in a garden. The clearer you are in the lease agreement, the less likely your tenant is to misunderstand.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a rental property be used as a garden?

If the rental property has flower beds near the house or in the yard, consider letting the tenant use these areas as a garden. Because they are already part of the landscape, it’s not a big deal for the tenant to prepare the ground for planting.

Do you have to get landlords permission to change your garden?

If the tenant wishes to change the garden in any way (even making improvements), they are required by law to gain the landlord’s approval beforehand – this also includes planting their own garden. Failure to do so could allow the landlord to charge the tenant the cost of returning the garden to its original state.

What do landlords need to know about garden maintenance?

The landlord is required to maintain any areas of the garden which it would be unreasonable to expect the tenant to look after – this usually includes the responsibilities for trees. It is also the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that action is taken should the tenant report an issue which is not their fault.

Can a landlord grow marijuana on his property?

Growing for resale and distribution requires a specific license from the state government. As a landlord or property owner, you can decide if you want to allow tenants to grow marijuana on your rental property.
