Using precious water to keep a lawn green
Original post made by Annenlise Connell, Woodside: other, on May 25, 2007
I pointed this out to him, and he just replies, "but I want a green lawn." There is no way of getting through to this man.
In contrast, my landscaping requires no watering at all. It is all oaks and ivy. What kind of pressure can one put on someone who is a renter with no vested interest who has no concept that the pinnacle of "home" is a big green lawn? I'm all ears.
