Media outfit NBC News reported that a greener and more sustainable option is being eyed in California.

“The plush, green lawns that dot the cities and suburbs of California are in danger. New restrictions meant to cut water use by 25 percent amid a four-year drought could force home owners to let their grass go brown — unless new smart sprinkler controllers save the day.

Winter Wonderland

In Louisiana though, a lawn turned into a winter wonderland last winter, after its owner forgot to turn it off when the weather reached below zero.

“Residents in one Baton Rouge, Louisiana community woke up Thursday morning to discover someone had forgotten to turn off the automatic sprinkler system. How did they know? Because temperatures overnight had fallen below freezing – and parts of their neighbourhood, coated in sheets of ice, resembled a winter wonderland. According to WVLA News in Baton Rouge, residents of the Windermere neighbourhood were fascinated by the bizarre “ice sculptures” the sprinklers had created, and came out to take photos of the impromptu display.”
