First of all, we know that we are foolish enough to spend our own money to make someone's backyard neat and nice(we are renting). Although we did it for our own comfort, it did add value to the landlord's property. And now we are moving out, and found out that our landlord does not want to reimburse any of the cost we invested in his yard. We had new lawn installed and planted various flowers, etc... The backyard (only rocks and dirt before) has transformed into a beautiful garden by us now.
As we are moving, we would like to take all the flowers and plants we planted with us, maybe even rip off the lawn and take with us. Can we do that? Someone said that this could against the law and anything we planted belongs to the landlord, it does not matter who pays for it. Is this true? We are very disappointed that our landlord didn't see our effort to keep his place nice and does not want to even compensate a penny to us.
