hopefully its just a temp setup to get things established... seems like it'd almost been cheaper to put it in the ground though, all those hosed must be $

The customer who we were working for lives just down the street. He was telling me today that when it first went in he was thinking it was temporary too. That was over a year ago. So looks like it's not.

This guy makes the case for why you need HOAs.

Any town can command the removal of the above ground install within the easement area, which would usually cover the sidewalk strip and sidewalk and a bit beyond.

That lash-up does have "lawsuit" written all over it. Anyone remember that one at a restaurant where someone fell off the sidewalk and got impaled on a riser? The client sued the restaurant, the contractor AND W*M. Won, big time.

Please excuse my ignorance but isn't that considered private property? Or is that easement considered public property?

I'm suprised the kids have not come by on their skateboards and kicked all of them over, sure happened on a lot of my commercial sites.

Easements are subject to town influence and/or control. Some towns I know of got so tired of p!ssy homeowners complaining about damage to sprinkler heads in the sidewalk strips, they up and banned them entirely. I remember one commercial customer wanting to pass a repair bill over to the town, for damage caused by the town planting a tree in the sidewalk strip, and I just shook my head and informed them that they never, ever, want to go there.
