Does the Village grass height ordinance refer to all grasses?

No! Grass height restrictions only apply to non-native grasses, such as Kentucky Bluegrass that originates from Europe. Native grasses like bluestem, sedges, and ryes may grow to any height unless they are planted in an area that could interfere with visibility of motorists.
