I figure I'm ahead of the game because I refuse to water my lawn, despite the neighbor's grumbling that my lawn looks bad.
You are totally correct about not watering your lawn. One of the great joys of summer in Washington State is gleefully watching the grass turn brown in the normal summer drought. It's my revenge for April and May when the grass grows so fast the only way to keep the yard from changing from a lawn into a hay field is to live by the mantra of "Sun out, lawnmower out." After fighting to keep ahead of it all spring, it gives me great pleasure to look at browning grass and say, "Die, you @&#$+$#!"
Ugggh. I still like a nice green lawn. It is my only personality flaw. Ha ha.
One of my friends lets his lawn go brown, but then he paints it with a green dye.
I hear you can recycle urine... i wonder if you can use it for stop bath ... its yellow
