Actually all lawn signs are not banned,  you can drive down any street in
any community and see various lawn signs at all times of the year, for
sale, open house, painted by,  etc.  Only political lawn signs are
limited to specific dates, IIRC 28 days prior to the preliminary election
and I believe 7 days after the general.
