I am so glad my neighbors have not gone xeriscape because otherwise I wouldn’t get to steal all their color.
As we speak (or virtually schmooze), a load of pea gravel is being dumped in the front yard. The disease has now spread from the back to the front, but really it is the responsible thing to do.
Living in the desert with green lush lawns, stealing water from northern CA for our vanity’s sake is just not reasonable. We grow rocks here, and some drought resistant plants. So we are going natural, but I’m hoping the neighbors don’t have the same conviction–at least for a while.
