We all know that using less water is not just something to think about doing rather something we should be doing. In this economy it becomes even more necessary to do what ever we can to use less water and save the environment. Let's be honest in saying that it is our fault that we are now having to conserve water so drastically. We put ourselves here and are now trying to figure out how to get out of this mess.

The simple solution is this... Kill Your Lawn!

Replacing your lawn with California natives or natives from where ever you are from, will save you lots of money and water.

The video will explain further. All info below was taken from the kcet website.

"Southern California has long had a rocky relationship with water: To stay alive in this semi-arid piece of the planet, Angelenos have stolen it, plundered it and wasted it for nearly a hundred years now.

We've thrived off that wasted water, but now it's time to get serious. We're smack in the middle of the worst drought in thirty years and Southern Californians are fighting back. In Long Beach, citizens have gone on neighborhood watch, taking to the streets with cameras and posting videos of overindulgent sprinklers and water-wasting neighbors on YouTube. They're replacing those green lawns with drought-tolerant plants and keeping an eye on their watering habits."
