Rebates for lawn replacement are a good thing, right? In Orange County, CA and other semi-desert parts of the state, residents who switch to fake turf are entitled to $300 rebates – unless they live in Garden Grove. The powers that be in that aesthetically anxious town have outlawed artificial lawn as unattractive. Sure, real gardeners pretty much gag at the thought of "astroturf" but in arid climates it may make more sense than the real stuff. But guess what else is illegal in Garden Grove – letting your grass go brown in the summer. Think Garden Grove can stay green indefinitely with those bozos in charge?
