Apparently they believed the part about 'land of the free', when they took their citizenship course.

This is ridiculosus, as long as the yard looks nice, what makes the difference. Grass, Wood Chips, Stone.
I myself have weeds growing in my yard, I did not plant them they are just there. I have beautiful wild flowers in the Spring. and I mow weeds all summer long, I don't even have to water. LOL!

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner

But he knew it couldn't last

Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona

Bought some California grass

"But the city cited them for violating a law that requires live landscaping to cover 40 percent of the yard. The couple planted drought-tolerant plants last year but the city said it wasn't enough."

So the plan. Find out who voted for this law, the nosy people who complained, and whoever gave the ticket, and halfway bury them all in the yard. Just have to make sure to feed them every day.

I'm so lucky to be living on the end of a dirt road...I can have anything in my yard I want, like old cars, tractors, hogs ,,sheep, chickens, cows, goats, can even sleep there in the nude if I want to..no neighbors to complain...

Poison Ivy!

Don't people in Las Vegas and similar places use rock, stone and cacti?

Wouldn't THAT be a reasonable "landscaping"?

It's California. Reasonable has a different meaning there as opposed to anywhere else.
