Aside

It’s too darn hot!  This week with record temperatures we are reminded that we live in a desert here in southern California.  Is a green lawn really the wisest choice?  We live in a semi-arid region and our imported water supplies have been permanently reduced; we must use our remaining supplies more efficiently.

We can turn the lawns into beautiful gardens of native drought resistant plants very easily and there are many resources to help – including financial incentives.

Rev: 11/5/15 — Los Angeles Times reports that homeowners may have to pay taxes on Lawn Replacement rebate.  For the average rebate of $3000 at a tax rate of 28% that’s $840.  As long as you know about that upfront and plan for it, it still makes sense.
