One wonders how these neighbors will get along. The one on the right is totally Local. In Ballard, we don't water the lawn during the dry months of summer. It goes brown but it will green up with the fall rains. Sensible, no?

On the left you see someone obviously from Elsewhere. Someone so concerned with appearances that they'll spend the big money for "Instant Lawn," and having done that, they then have to spend the big money to keep it green. Boggles the mind, it does.
