Sorry, I have no fireworks for you...everything is too dry here to take a chance. Still no rain for us. HB and I now have a very lovely beige yard that crunches when you walk over it. I'm trying to conserve water every way I know how.
And we're getting estimates on xeriscaping our yard. Lots of rocks and natural desert plants. Not sure why it wasn't done that way in the beginning. I've always thought it was crazy to have grass in the yard in the desert! And only until recently it was a city rule that you had to maintain grass in your front yard!! I wish I knew whose bright idea that was. Thankfully that has been suspended.
