Screw mowing the lawn

I'm getting me some fake grass.

Anaheim, along with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, is test-driving synthetic lawns as a way to conserve water.

If it works, residents who install the faux grass may soon be eligible to receive rebates, similar to those offered for low-flow toilets and water-efficient washing machines.
...
Public utility officials estimate that about 40% -- perhaps as much as 70% -- of an average residential water bill goes to outdoor uses. And 90% of that water is used on lawns.

Living in a desert like we do, I'm wouldn't be surprised to see this show up at some point. I know that my dad-in-law who does landscaping for a major resort in the area has had to paint dry grass green during drought years around here (yes you read that right: he painted grass green).
