City's grass median strips are a waste of money

May 30, 2012

Since Baltimore is in tight financial straits, why build a grass median in the middle of any city street ("City erected six-foot fence to protect grass," May 27)? Grass requires maintenance — mowing, watering, clearing debris.

Instead, use that $20,000 to plant vegetable gardens neighborhoods can use to provide food for the hungry or create grass playgrounds for children.
