We are moving to Union and when we finish building we plan on planting n mow grass seed - I read about it in th Huntersville Herald - I am not sure about it - but we are giving it a try - one it is grown you ony have to mow it twice a year (except weeds that seep through) and water it every three weeks - I think everyone in Union should look into it! No Mow Grass Kicks Gas
It is for parks and golf courses - but hey their grass alawys looks nice so t must be good.

Union County is considering tightening already-mandatory water restrictions because water demand spiked in the early part of August, according to a news release sent Wednesday.

We gave up on watering our grass 2 weeks ago, 2 days a week with all this heat, it was still dying and a waste of $$. We are watering our shrubs, can't afford to replace them all.

Ya know with less water shouldn't we have less mosquito's??? (itching mosquito bite on leg as I am typing )

I gotta admit the "no mow" sounds real interesting. I have a well company coming to my house next week to look at my property for a possible installation. If this 'No Mow' is as good as it sounds, maybe I will save the $5000.00 on the well and seed with this stuff.
