I am sorry for those residents that have to take out their lawns.
Many in Arroyo Grande have old kikuyu grass lawns. They are not perfect, but take practically no water and certainly no fertilizer. All they need is to be cut regularly because the grass is invasive.
I have a beautiful green lawn and it only gets watered maybe once every two months, or when it rains. The lawn is at least 60 years old . You can start one easily with a stolon from someone’s lawn. If it goes brown in the drought, just wait for rain.
