While watching American films, we are surprised how beautiful suburban areas are, well-groomed and harmonious. Not like ours - all houses are in disarray and there is no single concept. However, behind this is strict legislation that does not allow people to do what they want. Novate.ru will tell you more about this.

1. No noise after 23:00

In the United States, violation of public order is punished with heavy fines

A similar rule applies to us, but often no one pays attention to it. Except for neighbors, who are uncomfortable with loud music and noise. Of course, the police can come and ask the violators to be quiet, but it works every other time. In the United States, violation of public order is punishable by heavy fines. So many try to leave even earlier, and not wait until 23:00.

2. The lawn is a national treasure

A perfectly trimmed lawn is not an ardent desire or hobby of Americans, but a "must"

A perfectly mowed lawn is not an ardent desire or hobby of Americans, but a "must". The rating of the whole area depends on the condition of the lawn. That is why the residents diligently cut their lawns so that the blades of grass do not exceed 4 cm. Taking care of our plot has long been a personal initiative of each person.

3. A fence around the house is a sign of hostility

The fact is that the settlers have always lived in communities and did not fence themselves off from each other

While we build high fences of 2-3 meters around the sites, the Americans make do with low hedges. And if someone wants to put up a fence, it needs to be agreed at the district meeting. The fact is that immigrants in America have always lived in communities and have not fenced off from each other. If someone tried to separate, they were treated with hostility and incomprehension. Much time has passed since those times, but the tradition has survived.

4. All houses are in the same style

To make the streets look like in the picture, the appearance of the houses is clearly regulated

To make the streets look like in the picture, the appearance of the houses is clearly regulated. Each region has its own norms and standards. This is indicated in the documents for the purchase or lease of the house. If someone wants to change the color of the facade, they will have to contact different authorities, but, most likely, the answer will be no. And willfulness can turn into a call to the police and a large fine. Why are the rules so strict? Firstly, identical houses look harmonious, their appearance supports the prestige of the area. Secondly, in a well-kept place, real estate prices rise sharply.
