Lawn Dude's Conservation Column

Not sure if you've heard of me, but I'm Lawn Dude - the official water conservation mascot for SCWC. I used to have a major drinking problem. Thanks to that H20 diet that Governor Brown put me on, I'm looking better than ever. I've sprouted a few dry patches from my diligent choice to #LayOffTheSauce, but don't you worry - I'm making the drought look good.
