We have a front lawn and just coming out of a very hot dry season it is very dead and crunchy! I refuse to waste water on grass that will grow back with the first rains of the wet season anyway! Plus my partner is very happy to not have to mow for 4 months of the year.
Sort of. It's more of a field of prickles than lawn, the parts that are left after we covered half of it with a veggie patch anyway. Can't say I've ever watered it. The chickens eat the weeds, and sometimes the grass too.
We don't need to water our lawn at this time. We've been experiencing a lot of rainfall recently. In the summer however, the lawn was almost dead. I had to use the hose sometimes as well as the remnant of our shower to try and inject some life. However the dry earth just sucked in all that water. It was that bad. The dryness did save me some mowing cost.
As soon as the rains started, the grass sprung up as if nothing happened.
