The amount of water we use to keep our lawns green and nice looking is putting a severe burden on our aquifers and water sources. We need to challenge the notion that a nice green garden is expected of everyone. Replace your front lawn with rocks, gardens, xeriscaping (native landscaping), or even artificial turf (seriously) to minimize the amount of watering needed. Or just let your lawn get a little brown in the summer.
