Plants for parkway landscaping

L.A. Times reports there are new rules for residential parkways and recently included strawberry and thyme. Parkway Guidelines allow homeowners to plant drought-tolerant, turf-substitute ground-cover plants in their parkways without obtaining a permit. Previously, the only permit-free plantings allowed in parkways were street trees and grass. Download the 10 page Residential Parkway Landscape Guidelines.
