If you're accustomed to and prefer green, don't come to the brown/olive drab part of the country. There's a reason it's those colors...

Green = clouds, rain, and bugs.

I seen houses in Koreatown that actually have lawns, I even see the owner sometimes outside with a hose watering his lawn. Look at this house on the 400 block of Virgil street

What's sad is look at the empty lot next door. Ugly, unkempt, weeds.

Yeah, that empty lot's been a lot of things. They built a makeshift elementary school there once, and before that it was a storage lot for a Kia dealership, and even before that it was a pay parking lot. Haven't been to the area in several months, but last time I was there it was like you see it in the google map. Overgrown with weeds and dilapidated and a hangout for hobos and other shady characters.

Sounds like you would prefer the valley's to the basin. You have to be fairly moneyed to afford the bucolic areas in the basin. Check out Conejo Valley, San Fernando Valley, and San Gabriel Valley. Not that those areas are exactly cheap either... but there are less expensive options there.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my post with actual locations and feedback about those locations. Your responses were helpful.

On the other hand, I'm not sure why some people found the need to say negative things about me just because I'm moving from the east coast OR because I asked about green grass and trees. I asked becasue I do NOT know about the LA area. I'm moving there for a year long training program. I'm not a flighty girl just picking up and moving across country with an ignorant stance on this. I'm just asking questions so I can plan and have a better understanding of the LA metro area. There is no need to post ugly comments about my thought process or ignorance about LA.

Thanks so much!
