I seeded my lawn with clover this year for something different. Read up online about it. Since my grass was brown but the clover was more drought resistant, maintaining it's green colour.
The sun beats down on my front lawn all day and I don't feel good about draining aquifers just to keep it green because that's just retarded.
That and I don't really care for the "Final Solution" lawn of nothing but grass.
Backyard is fine because a swale runs though it and it is more shaded keeping it greener longer.
My favourite lawn that I've seen was just a bunch of low growth evergreens taking up the entire front yard. It actually looked nice, wilderness like but not overgrown. If It wasn't for my kids needing room to run around I'd probably do something different like a xeriscape.
Ideology does not make good policy. Good policy comes from an analysis of options, comparison of options and selection of one option that works best in the current situation. This option is often a compromise between ideologies. Modern conservatives don't follow reason, they don't analyse the situation, they make up an ideological solution and then attempt cram that solution into a problem that doesn't exist.
