    This is going to bite and bite hard. Sad thing is that it doesn’t need to.

    Running into hard limits, ignore them until it is too late.

    Slow down development. That’s not the American way

    Raise prices to encourage conservation. Never.

    Water wise gardening, appropriate landscaping. Not in this HOA.

    Put people before GOLF. Golf is not a matter of life and death, it is more important than that. Of course GOLF comes first.

    Harvest rainwater. Need a permit if the tank is over 100 gals and even with a permit you are limited to 2,500 gals (Utah laws). But then the HOA have something t say too.

    Do you have any idea how much it is going to cost to fill this swimming pool?

    I chronically neglected my back yard, so I had fake grass put in. It’s pretty impressive. It has a drain

    There are some very high-quality fake turf products now, for homes, athletic fields, business campuses, and golf courses. The good stuff costs a lot up front but would save an insane amount on maintenance (water, fertilizer, mowing).

    Some models even include fake thatch.

      Oh, and at least one artificial grass producer uses 80% recycled plastic, and others tout recycled water bottles, etc.
