The Grass is Never Greener than the Cash You Spend on It.

We just spent a bunch of money we didn't have to buy a luxury we didn't need. We now have a lot of grass I didn't want, consuming valuable resources during a drought. Our utility bill will be off the charts this month. Joy.

It's nice to have a sprinkler system installed. I just wish we didn't actually need to use it twice a day.

Personally, I'd rather have a rock garden. But who am I to argue with the HOA's infinite wisdom in sending me politely nasty letters about "the responsibilities of home ownership"?

If I'd realized how much I'd be homeschooling, I would probably have purchased a home out in the country, away from any kind of restrictive covenant.

Eco Irrigation did a good job. The result is beautiful.

Green, grassy, gorgeous...and gratuitous.

just the front lawn, or front and back?

The front and part of the back, basically one side. I'll see if I can get a picture of the back.
