Nothing more beautiful than a "sea" of golden brown grass reflecting the sun's rays in its season.

Better yet, let it grow to its natural length and enjoying watching it sway in waves, driven by the wind, just like the sea.

What makes me angry is wasteful conformity that flies in the face of nature.

Never mind, continue wasting water to make your grass green to decorate your energy-guzzling house, only to cut it a few days later, instead of letting it grow to produce grain like it's supposed to.

If we were allowed to replace the St. Augustine grass, we would do so as sod needed to be replaced, although unfortunately I can't afford to spend $7K to resod my entire lawn all at once.

I LIKE living in an HOA. My choice. If you don't like them, don't live in one, your choice. But it is NOT your right to tell me I can't live in one just because YOU have a problem with them.

Your opinion. I don't like looking at dead stuff and unmowed fields in front of houses. And using reclaimed water isn't "wasting water."

And some of us spent a small fortune to build an energy efficient house. You want to talk about not energy efficient? Go after mobile homes that use more power to run their a/c in a month than I do in a year.

Why aren't you allowed to?

Our HOA rules forbid it. Because the HOA was formed prior to the 2002 legislation against it, their St. Augustine grass only rule is grandfathered in.

We are having elections in our HOA next month, and it's something that several of the candidates want to change in our by-laws. Guess which ones I'm voting for...
