If you live in one of the HOT, HOT areas of the country right now, do you water your lawn all the time, or have you just "given up"?

After watering just a few minutes every third day, and my lawn still all dying, AND getting a $400 water bill, I said "forget it". When the heat spell breaks in a year or two, we can replant a lawn and bushes for 1/10th the cost. Meanwhile, we can go for that DESERT look.

SO...anyone else just given up on their yard in light of these record high heat waves?

We live on an acre of land. We have a private well, so we pay for the electricity to get the water out of the well, but not the water.

I honestly couldn't care less about the grass. It'll grow or not. Meh. I've never watered grass in my life, really. My MIL asked me a few weeks ago something about what kind of sprinkler we have. We don't even have one! If it doesn't rain, it is less acreage to cut for us. If it grows and looks reasonable green, no matter what is in it, it has to tough it out on our own. It's funny, because our neighbors who pay people to spray stuff on their lawn and are always watering and their grass is brown. We never do anything to our lawn, and it's still green, even with temperatures in the 90s or 100s for weeks on end and little or no rain. I think it thrives on neglect, personally.

We DO water our raised bed vegetable gardens, our flowers in containers and our herbs in containers outside. We get food from our garden and herb garden. We put work into those gardens and we get a lot out of them, so my husband brings several dozen gallon jugs of water to the raised beds in back and I use the hose for the flowers and herbs in containers.

Our "grass" is really green weeds to most people, so they're really hardy. All of our other plants are well established. So no, we don't water.
