Registering Managed Natural Landscapes

A recent update to Chapter 10, Health and Safety, Part 1, Turf Grass, Weeds, and other Vegetation requires those who have a "Managed Natural Landscape" in Ferguson Township to register them. This ordinance is intended to allow natural landscapes in a part of, rather than the entire, yard. The Township encourages residents to consult with Lori Sowash, Ordinance Officer, about the type and placement of these landscapes in their yards.

Please complete the Landscape Registration Form to register your Managed Natural Landscape with the Township.

Residents may contact Sowash with questions about these landscapes, as well as the registration process, at lsowash@twp.ferguson.pa.us, or at the Township office, (814) 238-4651.
