Is your yard drought-friendly?


It’s no secret that California is in a drought. Here at KPCC, we’ve been tracking drought news on our blog, Pacific Swell. We’re even sharing drykus. Now, we want to talk about a touchy subject: Your lawn.

Thousands of homeowners and commercial property owners in Southern California have pulled out millions of square feet of grass since the Metropolitan Water District started paying them to replace it with more drought-friendly options. Are you one of those people?

We’re interested in hearing whether you’ve made your yard less thirsty in the past few years — and if so, why?
