We have water restrictions in my area and I’m glad to do my part, reducing my water use by a significant 40-50% (and I’ve never been a heavy water user prior to this). Most people who I speak with don’t come close to doing that much water reduction but yet these are the same people who are the first to proudly proclaim that they bought one cactus “for the cause” and, more exhaustingly, criticize anyone who has a grassy lawn. Enough already.
I grew up in a home with a lawn and the tradition continues. My lawn is a little browner and a bit sparser these days because of the season and because of reduced watering, but I love it. But if I’m conserving this much water and still decide to keep and maintain my grassy lawn, it’s my business. Keep your shame to yourself. And get off my lawn.
