Save water, but we don't really mean it
Here is an article about somebody who xeriscaped her yard and is getting in zoning trouble for it.
At first glance, it sounds like something is horribly wrong, but a careful reading of the article makes it sound like she's not really landscaping, and is just randomly putting native plants in the lawn. And she's not replacing the KBG lawn--just not watering it.
Maybe if she'd plant some native grasses instead of the KBG, the neighbors wouldn't mind so much.
