A Sea of Green: Responsibly Maintaining a Green Lawn During a Drought | Mind Your Dirt
I can't believe I'm about to write a blog post about growing grass in the middle of a drought! I feel kinda crappy about it. But this is for the people out there that aren't quite ready to dive in and remove their lawns just yet. Maybe it's because you're like me and can't quite afford it yet or maybe it's for emotional reasons. Whatever the reason, let's just say that despite living in Southern California during a record drought you still want to have that green grass under foot. I fully realize how reckless and selfish this want is. I fully understand how much this want goes against everything that I preach here on Mind Your Dirt. But when I look into these baby blues and see the joy that the green grass brings to my girl, all of that melts away in an instant. How can I refuse her? Short answer? I can't. For now at least. In the near future I do plan to create a xeriscape solution, but I'm not ready for that yet. By the way, there is a difference between zeroscape and xeriscape.
