A year after the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power began offering $1/square foot for home owners to rip out lawn, KPCC reports that the Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts is following suit. A teaser interview today by Patt Morrison with horticulturist Lili Singer, special projects director of the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers & Native Plants, will be followed by a longer appearance by Singer tomorrow on AirTalk.
By all means tune in because ripping out your lawn is the right thing to do, but tune in if you simply like plants. Many of you will know Singer from the garden show that she did for KCRW in the 1990s, others will have taken her newsletter, yet others will have followed her in the Los Angeles Times. For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, there is a treat in store. Her presence on AirTalk makes it one phone-in program where even too-cool-for-school types should seriously consider dialing the expert. Singer’s kind, helpful, smart, funny and, best of all, back on the radio.
