Biologist Trish Smith and landscape contractor Manuel Gutierrez this week reviewed native plantings at the corner of El Toro Road and Laguna Canyon Road, a project of the Greater Laguna Coast Firesafe Council. Fall weather permits seeding and more flowers in the future. Landscape architect Ann Christoph designed the project with graduated densities of plants and a maintenance plan for each zone, in keeping with fire department guidelines to prevent the cycle of disking and weed regrowth that had been in place for years.
