Weeds and grass in excess of 12 inches in length on any occupied or unoccupied lot or parcel of land less than five acres in size in the city is a public nuisance and is prohibited. On vacant property where it would be physically difficult to mow because of topography or other physical constraints, the height limitation on weeds and grass shall only apply to a ten-foot-wide strip abutting the lot line of the property. Noxious weeds or plants as identified and defined by the state’s Department of Agriculture in their current publication are also a public nuisance and are prohibited. Native grasses and wild flower indigenous to Minnesota, planted and maintained on any occupied lot or parcel of land as part of a garden or landscape treatment are exempt from this subchapter.
