The Mission Resource Conservation District headquarters is located next to my shop. The organization advises people on how to sustainably deal with landscaping their property.
From their website:
San Diego County and regional residential property owners are increasingly interested in learning about ways to keep their properties healthy and sustainable. Some property owners are interested in how landscaping around their homes can benefit them and help ease the effects of the drought.
Now I am certainly not a paragon of virtue, I have pesky fountain grass growing up behind my shop, can't kill it. But honestly, it looks like Bouchard Gardens next to the MRCD. The weeds have been growing up through their pavement for a long time. Not sure if anybody is doing maintenance anymore, place doesn't look very operational.
It looks extremely unkempt. Quite a few of the newly planted shrubs are now dead. One would think that their message would be better received if they kept the place a little tidier. Once (before they took possession of the building) the grounds were a paragon of beauty, healthy trees and shrubs. Now it is a chaotic free for all. The message is less environmentally sustainable and more we don't give a shit, or at least that is my read.
The tweaker house on Brandon looks better than this place.
