Oh dear, people did that in town when the drought was on here, lindapalm. I'll bet they're regretting it too.
This photo shows maybe less than a sixth of the area I have to mow, and no, none of it is beautiful lawn, but grass seeing we are in the country. When we only had the house dam to rely on for water you would never make the grass , or a lawn I should say, stay green all Summer, and now we have the pipeline you wouldn't have the money to pay to do it either. So, I mow all this grass just to make it fire safe. Eventually it dies off once we get hot weather. Must go finish the nature strip now, which is maybe this much again, but not so long.
