They will think you are rich and put in fancy rocks.

They will be more upset about your poor mowing and edging skills

Wow I could never live in a place with a HOA, especially if they were that anal.

As with others I would leave it be, it gives it character.

Don't try to edge between the rocks -- it will just create erosion. I think what you have now looks really nice.

Some are. Many aren't. My HOA handles snow removal when it snows more than 3", mowing the grass in the common area/park, street lights in the neighborhood, and signage. The city's neighborhood code enforcement handles grass that hasn't been mowed and they don't cite houses unless it's at least 6", if not 8" long.

For everything else the HOA basically minds their own business, the way it's suppose to be.

Weed Whacker to trim it up, hand sheers, shovel, small children... whatever you can find.

Just set the grass on fire. That will naturally edge it for you.

Some (most) HOA do not allow burning of grass.
Not as much any more but it was quite common to burn off the dead bermuda lawn in the winter to dethatch them in AZ.
