Birmingham AL Garden Patio Homes

There are no legal definitions for Garden Homes or Patio Homes and the terms are used differently in varying parts of the country. However there are some very special characteristics that are common to these homes regardless of their location and they have to do predominately with lifestyle choices and are maintenance free.

The most common and sought amenity of Garden Patio Homes is that in almost all cases they come with exterior maintenance as part of the Home Owner Association fees. This maintenance includes not only complete lawn care but also any exterior maintenance such as periodic painting, roof repair, etc. Thus it is not surprising that these homes are the focal point of several Active Adult Communities.
