well this started as an interesting thread, you guys should park your egos for awhile and bring it back on course.
Here's my backyard-I've been pumping water through my hose for weeks.
The weather here has been brutal. Intense heat with ZERO rain. This is the 11th day at 90 or above.
My irrigated lawns are not even close to being this green.
I must admit I have, on occasion watered at night.
I've been letting it really shag up between cuts.
