[Total: 0 Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote Southern California is known for its array of perfectly manicured lawns and palm trees. But with an ongoing drought — the worst in more than 500 years — SoCal residents are being urged to cut down on water usage and find alternatives.

In the midst of a drought, some residents have turned to inexpensive lawn alternatives like UC Verde Buffalograss or the California Bentgrass, which uses nearly half the water required by typical lawns. Thinking of bidding farewell to your lawn? As an incentive, the Department of Water and Power is offering homeowners per square foot of grass removed. Those embracing a lawn-free zone include gardens in Mar Vista which are home to drought-resistant succulents and vegetables.
