Mowing Schedule for Lithia Ranch

The lots in Lithia Ranch must be mowed three times a year. There is a mowing schedule set annually by the Board of Directors and Agricultural Committee. All three required mowing are centered on the growing season. If a resident does not mow their property by the set date, that will result in the HOA contracting to have the property mowed, and they will charge the land owner for the cost of the mowing, including a service charge. Residents may choose to mow themselves, or hire their own mowing service. The HOA can supply homeowners with names of mowing services, or a resident may give permission to a local farmer to have their property mowed and baled out (which they usually do for free). The mowing schedule for the rest of the year is: August 1 and October 1.

The LRHOA extends an open invite to individuals interested in properties on Lithia Ranch to attend one of its meetings or call a member of the board to learn more about the community. For more information, visit or mail the Lithia Ranch Homeowners Association at P.O. Box 663 Lithia, FL 33547.
