The Norton triangle, a traffic island on Sixth St., has undergone a landscaping renovation that features plantings that will be self-sufficient once established.
Larry Guzin, president, said the Windsor Square Association board of directors first began planning a renewal of the Norton triangle in 2011. However, the project—which took years to gain the city’s approval—was only made possible thanks to a $24,000 donation by the Windsor Square-Hancock Park Historical Society.
The intersection is a gateway to Windsor Square but was in poor condition, with only a stump and weeds left from an area that used to hold three Liquidambar trees.
The garden was planned by Cheryl Lerner, a nearby resident and landscaper, with help from community leaders Guzin, Scott Goldstein and Helen Hartung.
The newly landscaped triangle features a live oak surrounded by pacific coast hybrid iris, ceanothus yankee point and blue-eyed grass.
