A home in The Gates of Hillsboro

Lesia DeFelice spent seven years making her Deerfield Beach home’s yard
into a landscaped, eco-friendly garden, replete with small patches of
fake grass to make it allergy-free and green. These efforts, however,
have landed her in Broward County Circuit Court. A civil lawsuit filed
by The Gates of Hillsboro Property Owners Association, the development
in which she lives, wants the fake grass removed, along with making the
DeFelices eventually pay attorney’s fees for the dispute. [Sun
