My hoa holds a landscape easement behind my house. I have verified with my county and there are no utility easement back there. I have taken approval from my HOa to clean up the easement, and landscape it at my expense and use the land for kids to play. I have a fence now And I will be pushing the fence back to where the easement ends. My question is will landscaping my eament myself increase or decrease my property value and can I put a play yard in the developed easement now for my kids?
