I just learned about a website which collects photos of homes in Laguna that have suffered view loss due to overgrowth of unmanaged trees, hedges or other vegetation. On the home page of the website, there is an aerial photograph of Laguna from the 1920s.
It must have been amazing to be able to have such unobstructed views of the ocean from your home, rather than the backside of some inconsiderate neighbors’ hedge and trees. But, as we know, “Common sense isn’t so common.”
