Are you talking about past the 10 foot of plastic sheeting?

Landscape fabric is not allowed.

I am not sure how well it work anyway, the stuff that I use in the garden, the water does not really go thru it very quickly. I have seen a type of fabric/netting used for shade that might work.

I use that landscape fabric. I dunno which brand, other than I got it at Lowes. I use it to catch debris when pressure washing roofs. Great stuff. The key to getting the water to flow through it is getting it wet with the hose first. Let it soak up some water, this will also keep it from blowing around on a fairly windy day. Tent steaks or dead tree limbs to hold it to the ground works good or a few gallons of paint, whatever you have available for the surface your on.

I would think that would be considered "disturbing the surface" but I'm so confused with this I'm thinking about staying out of the pre 78 homes for a couple of years. On average we were doing around 12-20 a year.

I believe it has to be over a certain percentage compared to the total surface area. If its under this threshold, then EPA rules don't apply. But many if not most pre 1978 homes probably do require scraping an area greater than this threshold.

What I want to know is, how do you tape down plastic sheeting on grass to follow this new regulation? And how do you deal with all the bushes, trees, etc in the way of laying down plastic?

I haven't yet looked up EPA's definition of "renovation" but I was thinking of the use of the fabric for general use on siding with chipping paint, not specifically for homes older than 78.

So, your saying that renovation is the process of tearing/removing then replacing. And this is in line with chipping/pealing paint? As if one is removing paint and replacing? That would make sense if in fact EPA looks at surface preparation in this manner as "renovating".

Now, are we saying that painting contractors have to be certified renovators to remove paint off of ANY home? Or is this only for RRP issues on homes older than 78?

I did read the EPA literature on this. I basically get the process. I mean they want everything covered with plastic, and dust minimized. Inside, its pretty easy to tape down and seal everything off, although it takes time. But outside, I don't understand how one would "tape" plastic down on grass and over all the different landscaping.
