while everyone around us is ripping out their lawns and replacing them with rocks, boulders, cactus and plants... i'm ripping out my dead lawn and replacing it with.... well.... lawn.
so sue me.
when i think of curb appeal and houses that look pretty when i drive by them- they all have grass. i haven't seen one house that has nothing but river rock and heat loving plants that i've thought "wow, what a pretty house." every house that has appeal to me, has a lawn on it. kids can't play in the front yard IF THERE IS NO YARD!! can you even call it a yard, if there is no grass? hell, i even like fake grass better than no grass. and plus, it would be one thing if i was living in vegas or arizona where it's virtually impossible to keep grass alive- not to mention insanely expensive. i don't live in the desert.. i don't want to live in the desert.. and i certainly don't want the front of my house to look like we live in the desert.
i know, i know- i'm such a bitch.
and apparently i'm an insanely bad person too because what kind of environment loving girl puts sod into the front of her house when there is a water shortage going on?!??!?!!
me. that's who.
