Requiem for a meadow.




West Jordan City Municipal Code, Chapter 42, "Environment," Section 3, "Nuisances," Part 2, "Weeds, Refuse, and Other Deleterious Objects":

"Injurious weeds and noxious weeds mean those plants growing in an uncultivated state, not used for food, fiber or ornamentation, extending in height greater than 12 inches above ground. The term "injurious or noxious weeds" shall also include those plants listed as noxious weeds by the state commissioner of agriculture pursuant to Utah Code Ann. § 4-17-3, together with such plants later added to such list.

"Nuisance means any injurious or noxious weeds, garbage, refuse, or unsightly or deleterious objects."

I laughed when I saw the article in the New York Times this week on xeriscape in Salt Lake City. Did you put them up to writing this article?

This is bullshit. Deleterious, hmmpf. Mow the meadow into a giant "L" and leave it at that.
