Years ago in Chicago, one of my neighbors got tired of his lawn, and had the whole thing dug up. He poured a slab of cement. When it dried, he painted it green.

I have to say we all envied him. No watering or cutting grass just pure patio, front and back. He just rolled out the lounge chairs, table, and what barbecues he had.

Use the space where your lawn is growing to grow food or at least use some kind of living ground cover that you do not have to use up natural resources to water, fertilize, weed, and cut.

Someone in our neighborhood xeriscaped their yard. Lots of rocks and drought-tolerant plants. I believe their yard was also wildlife habitat certified (although I might be getting the name wrong). I don't think they ever have to mow (I don't think there is any lawn). Are you familiar with xeriscape landscaping?
