Yes. It looks ugly and that's disrespectful to the families who come there to mourn.
They should water it a little more, but stay mindful of the state's drought.
No they need to find an alternative like dryscaping.

An ode to criminalization

San Luis Obispo Creek

By Jaime Lee Curtis Jones

Week after week I sleep in the creek,

Employment and change is all I seek,

Why not help me if you can,

I’m an intelligent, grateful, and honest young man,

I’ve just been dealt an unfortunate hand,

But for 23 years my record remained spotless with no tickets or fines,

Until just today, being homeless was the crime

A misdemeanor for not having a home or bed,

They didn’t have sympathy and turned me into a criminal instead,

So I guess lock me away and throw away the key,

Isn’t that San Luis Obispo’s view enforced by P.D.
