Missed Opportunity

I have been following with great interest over the years the succession of plans for the former United Methodist Church on Madison Street in Sag Harbor. Finally, the current owners seem to have come up with a creative and innovative use for the building. The reconstruction of the building is even proceeding at a pace that appears to have a good chance of reaching fruition.

Therefore, I was quite shocked to pass by recently and see all the newly planted sod. Evidently, the owners did not get the recent email from the Suffolk County Water Authority regarding saving water, much less the memo about global warming.

Where are the creativity and innovation when it comes to landscaping? This would have been a perfect opportunity to practice xeriscaping.
