What are California people doing during drought?

Water restrictions and the like are all over the news. So are you up selling artificial turf? Converting to low flow or drip? Or something else?

I saw that too this week.
We have some tough summers here too and try to push our extras as much as we can.
I have thought about getting into some pressure washing but not sure how much work we would get.

Might look for some organic green paint

Just spent a week at Pacific Beach - snapped a pic of this yard while out getting a morning coffee.

Some fake lawns look ok but many look very average I think. If the blades are too short it looks like carpet.

We are converting every pop-up and rotor to MP Rotators. Converting shrub beds from pop-ups to Netafim drip lines, installing artificial turf here and there and last but not least installing WeatherTrak ET controllers. We are staying busy.
