I liked "down with thirty lawns!"
I think we knew what you meant.
I have an anecdote that dispells the myth that St Augustine is a thirty lawn (sorry I couldn't resist). My next door neighbor has not watered her lawn in 4 years since she moved in. It is arguably the best looking St Augustine lawn on the block, street, and (upscale) neighborhood. The only water it has had is rainwater. It remains fantastic looking through every drought and water rationing period we've had because of what? -she never waters anyway!
For the first 2 years she never mowed either. The grass got to about 12 inches long before it really slowed down its growth. But it looked great 12 months a year if you can tolerate the length. It was dark green for 24 months in a row. Then a kindly neighbor mowed her lawn back to the ground. It nearly died but, since she continued to do nothing to it, it eventually responded. Last year she bought a mower and cut it twice. The last time was in September. When it stopped growing it was about 4 inches tall. It remained dark green with zero brown blades all winter. I looked every single day waiting for it to turn brown like the rest of our yards. Spring came and it looks the same as ever.
I swear this lawn has never been watered except for rain in 4 years! She and I laugh about it once a week. This year she bought a mister - one of those things that sits on a curly pole about 3 feet above the surface. She has that thing running all the time now and sometimes sits it on the grass. You can see the spray floating away in the breeze. I get as much benefit from it as she does. Anyone in San Antonio is welcome to come by and see for themselves. Email me for the address.
