Prepare for the guilt trip that you are wasteful and not environmentally friendly as the push to conserve water begins. The government is now giving you cash incentives to do away with your lawn in Los Angeles, California. Keeping your yard green and lush during these hot summer days is now considered being wasteful.
Sales pitch: Now you can save money, and actually get money back by tearing out your lawn. The Department of Water and Power is boosting its incentive.
“It takes about 48 inches or 4 feet of water to keep healthy during the year. And we expect to save, through this program, about 70 percent of that,” said Enrique Silva of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Water Conservation.
If the government can not force you into their idea on communitarianism they will sell you it on a silver platter.
