HOA Homefront Reader Questions

Are My Views Protected or Not? By Kelly G. Richardson, Esq. CCAL

By Steve Ozab

Grayed Exterior Wood Six months…or was it six years ago, you had a new fence, deck or siding installed. Despite your best intentions, you waited a bit too long. Now, the wood has lost its natural color and has turned gray. Here are a few tips to help you get rid of the gray and restore your wood’s natural color. First, take your fingernail and scratch your gray wood. See the natural wood color. It’s just under the gray. Get rid of it! All preservatives, oils, stains, or primer and paint will have a shorter life if applied over those gray, dead wood cells.

Dear Kelly: My HOA requires that trees be situated so “normal enjoyment of view by other lot owners shall be required.” It also says that the HOA controls tree trimming that “is necessary to prevent the obstruction of the view of lot owners.” Is this standard language or has it been prohibited by statute in any way?  Sincerely, P.D. Hi Mr. Richardson: We have lived in the same neighborhood for 25 years. One of the main reasons we decided to purchase this property was the incredible view. The association used to trim the trees annually, then moved the trimming to every two years and in recent years have said that an arborist recommends the trees not be topped as it isn’t good for the trees. So instead of mountain and hill views all I can see are trees. The covenants say that vegetation on the common area is to be cut at such intervals so that the view of any owner is not unreasonably obstructed. R.H. Dear Kelly: We have lived in our home for over 25 years, and initially we had a sprawling view. Many years later our neighbor’s tree is enormous and never maintained. I have been bringing this to the HOA’s attention for years. Now there is a wall of trees encapsulating our property. Thank you for your response. Sincerely, E.O. Dear P.D., R.H., and E.O.: Under longstanding California real estate law, land ownership does not automatically include view rights. However, as a private covenant between owners of the properties subject to those covenants, CC&Rs can include view protection. Check the CC&Rs and architectural

rules to see if they include language about views. If the governing documents contain no view protection, then there is no requirement that the HOA or your neighbor trim the trees to preserve neighbors’ view. Sometimes the governing documents create confusion on this subject. Some HOA CC&Rs do not protect views, but then the architectural rules state that architectural committee should consider view impact as one of many factors in evaluating applications to alter landscaping or structures. This can be confusing to homeowners – are views protected by the HOA or not? If the CC&Rs contain a view protection or height limit regarding trees, the board is duty bound to comply with that requirement and cannot rely on an expert to provide justification as to why the HOA need not follow its governing documents. This is the lesson from the 2008 appellate court decision in Ekstrom v. Marquesa at Monarch Beach HOA. The association CC&Rs contained a tree height limit that was exceeded by many palm trees within the association, and the board decided it was illogical to apply the limit to palm trees since topping them would kill them. The association argued that the Business Judgment Rule allowed the board to exempt palm trees from the CC&Rs height limit. However, the appellate court ruled that the board did not have the discretion to violate the plain meaning of the CC&Rs and upheld the trial court’s decision against the HOA. Issues about view are common, and consultation with association legal counsel can provide the board and architectural committee a clear understanding of the governing documents on the subject. Thanks for your questions, Kelly

To get rid of the gray, apply a wood brightener. It might go by several different names. The Savogran Company makes one in a dry crystal form called Wood Bleach, while Cabot and Behr make liquid concentrates called Wood Brightener and Premium All-in-One Wood Cleaner & Stripper, respectively. Regardless, of what they are called, these different products have two things in common. The first is Oxalic Acid, which serves as the main ingredient. Second, they are concentrates. Water must be added. Insider tip: Save some of the full-strength crystals or liquid. I’ll tell you why at the end of this article. After adding water, these wood brighteners are applied to the grayed wood with a brush, airless paint sprayer, roller, or my favorite — a pump-up garden sprayer, also known as a Hudson sprayer. Once the wood is saturated with this watery mixture, wait about 15-20 minutes, then scrub with a palmyra, Tampico, or nylon scrub brush. On decks, use a push broom or deck brush. Don’t let the wood dry out. Don’t get too far ahead of yourself. You want the wood to still be wet when you start scrubbing. After scrubbing, take a hose with a nozzle that shoots a strong stream of water or a pressure washer and spray the scrubbed surface. Voila! Brand new wood is revealed. (Be careful with a pressure washer. Keep your distance or you might make the wood extremely rough.) So, what happened? The oxalic acid loosened the dead wood cells. Scrubbing removed the dead wood and revealed the natural wood color right below the surface, once rinsed. Re-apply, scrub, and spray again if a few stubborn spots remain. Caution: Read and follow all warning labels. The manufacturer may recommend wetting down surrounding grass and foliage, as well. This sounds like a lot of work but consider an old label claim from a brand of solid acrylic stain I once carried, “This product is warranted to last 12 years on new wood and 6 years on old wood.” Get it? New wood cells support a longer life span of any top coat. Need another reason to get rid of the gray? The color of any penetrating oil, semi-transparent, or semi-solid stain will appear more even, with no gray color making an unwelcomed appearance. Now, that you’ve made your wood ready for a top coat, let’s consider all the different coatings available for your exterior wood in next week’s article. Insider tip: If a flower pot has left a black circle on a wood surface, use a liquid wood brightener with no water added. In the case of crystals (Savogran Wood Bleach), mix a teaspoon of crystals with only 6 ounces water. In both cases, agitate the surface with a brush and rinse. Repeat if necessary. This tip once saved the top of a customer’s upright piano. The customer used a toothbrush and a sponge to rinse.

Question: About 3 years ago, my husband and I gained some space to enlarge our bathroom by getting rid of our old water heater that was in a closet in our hallway and having our plumber install a new tankless water heater on the outside wall of our house. It worked just fine for the first couple of years, but recently the water is not getting as hot as it should be. We have turned the temperature setting up to the highest level, the water warmed up a little but still is not as hot. I paid over $3000 to purchase the tankless water heater and to have the plumber install it, so hopefully it isn’t already worn out. Any ideas as to what the problem might be so we can enjoy a nice hot shower again? Your Handyman: Tankless water heaters have been used in Europe for many years but are a relatively new appliance here in the States that has received a great deal of attention as a “green” option for heating the water for your home. Unlike the conventional water heater that keeps 40-50 gallons of water constantly hot in an insulated tank, the tankless heater has a sophisticated copper heat exchanger fueled by natural gas or propane that doesn’t fire up until someone opens a hot water valve inside the home, so no energy is spent keeping water hot that isn’t being immediately used. This copper heat exchanger is very susceptible to mineral scale build up much like a tea kettle and it is best that the home has a water softener or at a minimum a particle filter plumbed in line before the heater. If your home does not have a water softener then minerals will build up in the heat exchanger that may make it heat water less effectively and over time may possibly cause the unit to fail. Most manufacturers of tankless water heaters recommend that the unit is flushed annually to remove mineral build up and some make an annual flushing a requirement of the warranty for the heat exchanger. The flushing process is actually pretty simple, and the secret ingredient is plain old white vinegar that can be purchased at any grocery store. If you chose to do the flush yourself you will need a clean 5-gallon plastic bucket, a pair of water supply lines similar to what are used for a clothes washer, a submersible sump pump, and 2-3 gallons of white vinegar. Your first step is to turn off the tankless water heater at the control panel so it can’t turn on while being flushed. Next you will want to identify and close the isolation valves that control the cold-water supply into the heater and the hot water supply out of the heater. On the base of the unit will be two ¾” male threaded fittings with screw on caps, one on the cold intake side and the other on the hot supply side, and to these you will connect your 2 hoses. Each of these fittings will have a valve that you will turn to the open position. The end of the hose attached to the cold supply side is now threaded onto the sump pump which is sitting inside the 5-gallon bucket and the other hose end is put loose into the bucket. Pour the white vinegar into the bucket, turn on the sump pump and let it circulate the vinegar through the heater for about 45 minutes which will effectively descale the heat exchanger. Next remove all the vinegar from the unit by circulating clear water for about 10 minutes and the flush is complete. You can also do an online search for “how to flush a tankless water heater” to find countless how-to videos on the procedure, or if this is not your idea of a fun thing to do on a Saturday morning or on your day off, most any handyman service or plumber can be hired to do it for you.

BRING IN

Spring! Nothing says spring like a bouquet of flowers. Pieces like this bottle display are great investments as they easily transform to match the seasons.

Throw pillows are an inexpensive way to update your home for spring. Bring in patterns and bright light colors to take your year-round furniture into the season. Photos courtesy Handout/TNS

Springtime is in full effect and I couldn’t be more thrilled. After such a cold and harsh winter here in Kansas City, Mo., spring truly feels like a revival for me both creatively and mentally. I have been craving fresh air, patio weather and of course, the start of rose season. I am even excited for April showers that will bring us all those May flowers we deserve. Plus, now that my spring cleaning is done — well... almost done — I’m ready to start introducing fresh and springy decor to brighten up my house. As I plan out my approach this year, I want to share some of my favorite ways to change my decor going into this light and bright season.

Floral prints are a fabulous way to incorporate flowers into your home without having to replace a display every week.

INCORPORATE GREENERY There are many creative and easy ways to bring fauna into your space without completely redecorating. I love to use ferns and wreaths to enhance my existing vignettes and tablescapes — one small change can have a big impact. Versatile fern wreaths are also excellent for DIY lovers who want to create their own masterpieces. Another go-to for me is the classic topiary (are you surprised?). They seriously never go out of style. Available in any size, they are a great addition to shelves, tabletops, vignettes — I could go on and on.

Incorporate elements that celebrate spring holidays. Easter eggs are a great accessory that can be styled together for a big impact or by themselves for a more subtle touch.

ARTFUL FLORALS I absolutely love flowers. My allergies do not. This being the case, I have found that faux flowers and floral patterns bring the same beauty I crave from the real deal. Nothing brings light and freshness into a space quite like flowers. If you aren’t ready to take the plunge for a full floral sofa, try

incorporating bright flowers. Transitional pieces like bottle displays, cloches and pedestals make changing seasons easy as can be. SEASONAL PIECES It’s the season for spring holidays. I love to bring in Easter decor that can last beyond the holiday. Bunnies are my usual go-to, from pillows to figurines. The cute additions hop through my living space all spring long. This year I am bringing in some spring eggs that add sparkle to my decor. The bright colors and fun aesthetic of the eggs add a bit of whimsy to my rooms and tablescapes. INTRODUCE WICKER AND NATURAL ELEMENTS In my opinion, there are few better pairings then fresh greens and wicker. Bringing in natural elements gives the feeling of being outside on the porch without having to go outside. Wicker, rope accents and other woven design elements add texture to a room without overpowering it. They are a great subtle way to change up your home. THROW IN SOME COLOR Throw pillows are a great way to introduce spring colors without replacing major pieces. Choose a few colors you want to bring in and find both solid and patterned fabrics that tie into your existing decor. It’s a quick fix that doesn’t break your budget. Adapted from nellhills.com.

Truths From Grandparents’ Gardens

With parents working, the best example for youngsters is to spend time with grandma helping with her garden. Photos courtesy Maureen Gilmer/TNS

By Maureen Gilmer

Gardens have always been vitally important during times of great change. They fed Southerners during the Civil War, sustained Britain during the Great War, became essential during the Great Depression and some were finally labeled victory gardens in World War II. Many adults tell how their own grandparents’ gardens so greatly influenced their lives. In fact, this is how many of our most famous horticulturists got started with plants. These grandparent gardens taught some boomers about the value of plants and soil, while inspiring others to take up horticultural professions. Today, it’s a boomer’s garden that can influence a new crop of grandchildren. When parents are extraordinarily busy, grandparent gardening is an ideal way to teach them to grow while pondering great truths. Truth: Vegetables and fruits aren’t created in the supermarket. Many children have never seen a melon vine or dug a potato, so they don’t have any way to link a living plant to the food they eat. Something as simple as a giant zucchini will not only connect the dots from earth to produce, it can grow such an enormous fruit kids will take notice. Truth: Patience is required when working with nature. You can’t speed a food crop, and one that takes 90 days to mature cannot be shortened no matter what you do. In a world where everything is done in a rush and schedules are tight, the gradual process of plant to flower to fruit shows how nature follows a process. Kids learn it’s neither nice nor productive to try and fool her. Truth: Observation is key. My mentor once advised me to “observe, observe, observe” because that is the key to learning horticulture. Taking time to study a plant, to assess a response to its environment demonstrates many key truths. Getting to

know the plant and how it looks when happy and productive precedes the ability to know when it is unhappy. Seeing the details in anything helps us to understand it at a fundamental level, and that takes time, study and comparison. Truth: Care and attention results in a superior product. Regular watering, weed control, removal of insect pests and cultivation of the soil all contribute to a productive garden. You can’t get around this fact without seriously threatening your crop. If not adequately watered, that giant zucchini may not flower, or its fruits may fall off the vine for lack of moisture. Without long-term care, all the hard work to plant the garden is for nothing because plants will Those grandparent gardeners often live amid lots of not thrive, and if they are struggling they cannot proplants and teach their names to the children. duce abundant fruit, nor will it be full-sized and well flavored. Truth: Everything in nature has a cycle. Children see life in a linear way, always dreaming of what they’ll do when they get older. The cycle of planting, harvest and dormancy of a garden shows kids life is actually a cycle based upon seasons and weather and moon and sun. It teaches kids how birth and death occurs with all living things, that it is a natural process. And when the garden is composted at season’s end they are shown that all life returns to the earth. As we face a coming new year shadowed by uncertainty and illuminated by promise, we too may find great comfort in growing beautiful things in the yard. Rather than going out and spending money, grandparents can leisurely tend the garden. While pulling weeds with a youngster, we can share what we know about these simple joys of life. We can help them in the art of observation. We can demonstrate how we care and nurture fragile things. We may exhibit patience when planting seed or training a tomato to contribute to its overall success. And someday when those kids have children of their own, they’ll pass on this knowledge of plants and the importance of gardens, which extends much further than merely paying the gardener to do it for you.

Until you can handle a seedling this fragile, you won’t understand the most delicate parts of gardening.
