I don't know where Munky lives, but all of California has been experiencing a drought for a few years now. People really need to stop trying to grow grass out there.

Trust me it's not that simple. I've just replanted the front lawn that's small because of the last threat from the Nanny Lawn Police.This time last year they wanted to implement fines for people like me who let the lawns,flower gardens die.Their thought was "It makes the neighborhood look like abandoned houses.Blight" Clean it up pretty.
We can't win no matter what we do.
I'm keeping that small lawn.I do have a right to try and protect some of my hard earned investment money.My home.From having a fire hazard on my hands.The backyard is gone.I haven't had a garden in years because of the drought.My car needs a good bath.I can't see out the windshield.So if I wreck it I'll me paying for that to.
