We could use some rain. It's not even officially summer yet, and yet lawns look like it's late August. Are you the lawn-watering type?
Maybe talking about the weather will get some comments going here. What side of the fence are you on, the side where the grass is always greener because you believe in lawn watering? Or do you take a walk on the brown side, and think, "Live and Let Die?" (Happy Birthday, Sir Paul).
Here are the essential arguments of the lawn-watering debate:
High and Dry: Hey, if you water it, you've just got to mow it.
Water Boy: Then again, a brown lawn is ugly.
High and Dry: It's socially responsible to adhere to lawn-watering restrictions so there's enough water available to fight fires during emergencies.
Water Boy: This is America, and if I want to water my grass I'm going to water my grass. Besides, I water my lawn with water I collect in rain barrels.
High and Dry: I'd love a green lawn, but I can't afford a huge water bill this month.
Water Boy: I often entertain guests in the backyard on summer evenings, and I'm not going to have a dead lawn.
High and Dry: It's not dead, it's dormant. It'll go green again when it rains.
