Okay, so I've found myself living in suburbia where every house looks the same, with two or three cars in the driveway, and a dead lawn.
For environmental reasons, I refuse to water my lawn, and find myself actually looking down my nose at those few lush, green lawns of which their environmentally-oblivious owners are so proud. Not to mention the fact that with a 7-month baby at home, I wouldn't have time for watering, anyway!
My question is: Where can I find a lawn alternative that:
- requires no watering
- requires no / little mowing
- won't shrivel up and die in a SW Ontario summer (full-sun location)
- looks a little 'different' but still 'lawn-ish' (ie. not a wildflower meadow)
- won't get me lynched by the neighbours?
Is there such a thing?
