Wasting water so you can waste gasoline....
...is pretty much the definition of a lawn. Both resources are finite and under pressure. Every gallon played off against the other denies something vital to people who will suffer from the lack of one or the other. These days, when I see a "well tended" patch of grass (watered daily and cut weekly) I realize that more than a piece of land is getting hosed. Someone remind me again about the virtues of a voluptuous lawn?

1. Lawns are TOTALLY artificial, useless and wasteful.
Take a walk in "nature." Go into the woods, walk through a meadow, whatever. When was the last time you saw a "lawn" in nature? Ain't no such beast. Lawns are totally man-made, and devastating to our planet.
"Devastating our planet!!!!!!" BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
