eco-friendly lawn = lawsuit

Master Composter Rob and I were talking about the uselessness and wastefulness of lawns the other day. Here's a family that did something about it and got their @sses sued.
Orange officials sue couple who removed their lawn
City codes require that live landscaping cover 40% of the yard. Quan and Angelina Ha say their water use has dropped 80% since they replaced the grass with wood chips and drought-tolerant plants.
Meanwhile, the couple said they had reduced their water usage from 299,221 gallons in 2007 to 58,348 gallons in 2009.
