We believe in allowing our grass to go dormant during the hot summer. We believe it's a more natural and healthier way to care for our yard. It's our own little way of going green.
We would love to have a green yard, but I ran over too many sprinkler heads with the mower and they're too old to replace easily. Thus, we no longer have a working sprinkler system.
Fortunately for us, our neighbor does and he waters about four times a day. Graciously, his watering overshoots the yard boundary by about three feet giving us our very own three foot strip of green grass.
Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side, and for about three feet on our side? It's just as green.
