Grass in front yard? I idiot ripped out my meadow style grasses in my front yard. Now it has the bushes only, and the last purple medow grass that I forgot to rip out. I regret that I ripped them out. If you have meadow and aquatic style grasses, they self regulate autonomously and grow beautifully. I am awful. Plant medow style.
Southern California isn't Kentucky, or England.
Lawns in this part of the country are a symbol that you don't really like the desert climate and can't adapt.
We're 320 sq ft away from being grass free.
Doesn't mean we don't have vegetation though.
We have fruit trees, a veggie garden box and we'll most likely get back to putting in some hardy regional plants.
But the ground itself is decorative gravel, rock or concrete.
Besides, we have a lot of vehicles so the concrete also serves a functional purpose.
I am sure Corporate California appreciates people foregoing water so they can continue to water their for-profit almond trees.
Anyone want to remove their lawn upkeep by
killing their grass I can rent out my father, he used to always kill his lawn every year by over tending to it. *L*
And that is fine with me, too. Even if the almond growers didn't exist, there's still no reason for me to pretend that I live in Eastern Kentucky when the reality is, I live in the URBAN DESERT CLIMATE of Southern California.
You don't show up in Costa Rica wearing mucklucks, a parka, gloves and thermal underwear.
And it's foolish to plant high maintenance thirsty lawns in Los Angeles, California, almond growers or no almond growers.
