O.C. Homeowners Sued for Removing Lawn
Amina Khan writes, "Last summer, the couple tried to appease the city by building a fence around the yard and planting drought-tolerant greenery -- lavender, rosemary, horsetail and pittosporum, among others.
They sent a photo of the yard to city officials in October. But according to the city, their landscaping still did not comply with city standards.
"They put up a nice fence, but [the photo] didn't show anything about how they had complied with code, as far as the frontyard goes," Senior [Assistant City Atty. Wayne] Winthers said, "nor did it include a site plan."
