Is this cropping up in your area? We've had two recently completed projects (carwash and public cemetery entrance) make it to the newspaper. The city allowed these two projects in order to determine if the beautification aspect and saving of water is something they want to allow in their codes. I'll be watching them to see how they weather but right now they don't look too bad with longer "grass blades." These projects also have trees in them which still require irrigation but the rest of it is supposed to be maintenance free. One thing I do notice is that the carwash area is slightly hilled and could become a target for graffitti.
