LADWP Water Restrictions
Ineffcient and Wastes Water

Starting June 1, 2009, the City of Los Angeles and its Department of Water and Power began much needed water conservation efforts. The problem is, that the new rules are designed around the same green lawns that the DWP is recommending for us to replace with drought tolerant landscaping that does not do well with the same water schedule as lawns. Further, the DWP is not allowing the extra water necessary to establish this new drought tolerant landscape. You are better off keeping the water inefficient lawns until the current situation changes because you won't be allowed to establish the water conserving landscape and it will become bare ground.

To summarize, the DWP wants us to plant lower water using plants, but won't allow us the extra water needed the first year to establish their tiny deep roots.

I have written two letters to the DWP protesting their water wasting water conservation rules. Letter one. Letter two.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started as alight-hearted alternative to my portfolio site, and then grew. This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. Only recently I tried advertising as a way to balance the budget, but it still doesn't cover the costs. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
