LAPD landscaping

September 21, 2009

Re "Lawn and order," Sept. 17

"Lawn and order" might be a catchy title and partly descriptive of the landscaping at the new Police Department headquarters, but its greatness is in its use of wonderful beds of low-water and native plants, handsome red-earth gravel walkways, benches to sit on and amazing design. It's worth a trip downtown, where I live, just to see it. Finally someone got something right. But we still are desperate for those million green trees promised by the mayor. Even half a million.

In the midst of a drought, while lawns are turning brown because of watering restrictions, the new LAPD headquarters features a lush front lawn. That's the type of example-setting we have come to expect from our municipal institutions. What if the LAPD ignores the city's watering restrictions? What DWP enforcement employee will have the nerve to ticket the Police Department?
