Welcome to Lake of the Woods Home Owners Association Web Site!

Beautify Lake of the Woods


The abundance of moisture has everything green and growing in Lake of the Woods, including perennial broadleaf weeds in our yards.


Your Home Owners Association Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions states: "All owners should maintain their property. Including maintenance of landscaping using generally accepted garden management practices necessary to promote a healthy, wee-free environment for optimum plant growth."


Early spring and fall are the best times to control perennial broadleaf weeds in your yard, but during cooler summer days, homeowners still can remove stubborn weeds.
